Moving from New York to Atlanta

Moving from New York to Atlanta

If you enjoy city life, but the New York rush seems a bit too much, Atlanta may just be the right choice. With that said, a smooth transition depends on your expectations and preparation.

In this post, we will explore the differences between the two places. We are going to cover the moving aspect, as well as shipping a car from New York to Atlanta. Hopefully, you will end up even more excited to make the transition. But enough introductions, let us dive deeper!

Is Atlanta a better city to live in than New York?

Phrasing the question like that makes it a bit difficult to answer. Better for what? New York City falls within the category of world-class urban areas. It ranks among cities like London, Paris, Hong Kong, and the like. In other words, if you want to live in the world’s biggest cultural centers, Atlanta does not beat New York.

However, there is more to life than that. In terms of experiences, Atlanta offers a wide variety of things to do. Of course, most things do not go to the level of NYC, but will not leave you complaining either. If you enjoy culture, music, and food, you can find plenty of that in Georgia’s capital.

It also has a booming economy that draws many people in. Pair that with a fairly cheaper cost of living and housing (compared to New York), and you can actually get more for less if you move there. This gives you a good idea of the major differences. Still, we should also talk a bit about the details of living in Atlanta!

What is it like to live in Atlanta?

For starters, the city experiences a lot of change. We have already noted the job growth, but it does not stop there. You may have heard that Atlanta is the new Hollywood. That means aspiring actors have more opportunities to try out. It also grows more and more cosmopolitan with each day, making it much more diverse than a few decades ago.

Here are some more interesting details about the place:

  • Very green – It is not called “the City of Trees” for no reason. People do a lot to preserve the greenery there, which has ended up quite lush in the process.
  • Friendly people – Though people in cities tend to be rather distant, you can still get some of that southern hospitality in Atlanta.
  • Mostly hot – If you enjoy seasonality and want snow every winter, Atlanta may disappoint you. Nevertheless, most people do not miss the cold New York winters, so chances are you won’t either. That said, it often goes to the other extreme – scorching hot summers.
  • You can actually catch a break – Even if we cannot call Atlanta “laidback” in any way, life still runs slower than in New York. Plus, you can have your pick between quiet or lively neighborhoods.

If you want to get more information about the city, you can visit the official Atlanta website. Now, let’s talk about the moving process!

How much does moving from New York to Atlanta cost?

The final cost of moving depends mainly on the size of your move. Prices start from about $2,200 on the low end for a one-bedroom apartment and go up from there. If you want full packing services, you can expect to pay upwards of $3,000.

Things get even steeper for two- and three-bedroom apartments. Depending on the additional services you need, you can end up spending anywhere from $3,500 to $6,000. Aside from doing the packing yourself, you will find it difficult to cut the costs in any other way. You have the option of renting a moving truck, but most people find that too stressful and ultimately not worth the trouble.

How do I ship a car from New York to Atlanta?

A professional auto transport company can provide you with a near hands-off service that will save you a lot of time. Not to mention that you will be sparing your car the unnecessary wear and tear, which comes with prolonged driving. The easiest way to start the auto transport process is by getting a free car shipping quote.

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.

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.
