Moving from Massachusetts to Florida

Moving from Massachusetts to Florida

If you prefer living in a place with a relaxing vibe, warm temperatures all year round, and beautiful beaches, then Florida is the perfect match. However, moving from Massachusetts to Florida involves a certain amount of preparation and planning. We hope that by the end of this article, you will have the necessary information to get you started with the moving process.

What should I know before moving to Florida?

Florida has a humid subtropical climate. Almost all parts of the state are close to the ocean, which creates warm temperatures, but at the expense of high air humidity and frequent hurricanes and tornadoes. So, you may want to leave most of your bulky winter clothes in Massachusetts and prepare for frequent tropical rainstorms.

Being the flattest state in the US, Florida does not offer many hiking opportunities. Yet, the rich flora and fauna, together with other natural beauties such as the Florida Reef, make up for the absence of steep hills or mountains.

Culture and Food

With around 21.5 million inhabitants, Florida is one of the most culturally diverse states in the US. Places such as Miami are a true melting pot, with a strong Latin influence. This is reflected in the delicious Hispanic food, especially the Cuban cuisine, and also in the music and languages spoken. Planning to move to Miami should inherently involve learning Spanish, so start classes now. It will help you make friends quicker and expand your network and worldview.

Jobs and Housing

Florida is a friendly business environment for many companies, which is also one of the reasons for its continuous growth. This has been driving up real estate prices, though they still remain a good investment spot for incomers. Broward, Miami-Dade, Orange, Hillsborough, and Palm Beach are some of the areas which are witnessing population growth and job creation.

In addition to the traditional tourism sector, healthcare, business services, and information technology are among those that are developing the most. If you work in one of these areas, Florida will definitely offer many opportunities to develop professionally.

How much does it cost to move from Massachusetts to Florida?

Different factors such as the exact distance, weight of the items, type of packing materials, and additional services including packing or unpacking can affect the moving costs. Usually, the cost ranges between $3,000 and $5,000. However, many reliable companies will offer you an exact quote once you give them all the moving information.

There are always ways to lower the costs and make them fit your budget. One way is to choose an average packing material type for non-fragile items. Another way is to do all your packing, or loading and unloading yourself. If you plan in advance, you can always find ways to smoothly handle some of these services, which may significantly lower your moving costs.

How to ship my car from Massachusetts to Florida?

Florida does not have a very developed public transportation system, which is why bringing your car is a smart move. One of the most important criteria when choosing an auto transport company to ship your car from Massachusetts to Florida is reliability.

Take some time to research, check customer reviews online and certainly ask friends and family. Your car is an important asset and your peace of mind while shipping is important.

How much does it cost to ship my car from Massachusetts to Florida?

Once you narrow down the list of auto shipping companies you can start calling them and asking for quotes. Keep in mind that the car shipping costs will depend on your car make and model, whether the car runs and drives and the exact distance. Moreover, the type of car carrier and service you pick, as well as truck availability at that time of the year are also important car shipping cost factors.

For example, an open auto transport carrier with a regular shipping time will cost you less than an enclosed carrier with an expedited shipping service. In the same way, as with moving costs, there are also ways that you can optimize your auto shipping costs. The most important one is to start planning early.

Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Excellent Organization

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
