Moving from New York to Miami

Moving from New York to Miami

Big Apple to Magic City is one of the most popular relocation routes in the continental United States. If you are considering moving from New York to Miami, you are definitely not alone. Join us in this post as we share practical relocation information, including shipping your car between the two destinations.

What do I need to know before moving from New York to Miami?

Moving across states presents its challenges. There is a host of things to consider to ensure a successful move. Below, I have outlined a few key differences between New York and Miami to help you prepare for the transition.

1. Lower cost of living

Coming from New York City, you will find the cost of living in Miami significantly lower. This is especially reflected in the lower cost of rent and home-ownership. For example, the asking price for a one-bedroom rental in Magic City could be up to $1,800. While in New York, depending on the area, it can easily go above $3,000.

On the other hand, salaries are about 20% lower in Miami. Nevertheless, you will still be better off financially. And as a bonus, Florida doesn’t charge state income tax.

2. Warmer climate

Needless to say that the climate in Miami is great for snowbirds and everyone who prefers warmer places. So, get ready to leave your heavy winter coats behind – you won’t be needing them in sunny Florida. However, keep in mind that sometimes the weather can be quite humid. Therefore, remember not to fully dry your laundry, get house plants, and buy a dehumidifier. You can thank me later.

3. Laid back lifestyle

If you are used to the hustle and bustle of New York, you will immediately notice the difference once you set foot in Miami. Life takes a slower pace, and the beautiful, inviting coastline will always be there as a reminder to take a break.

At some point, you may get a bit homesick and miss the busy streets, the subway, the skyscrapers, or just grabbing a coffee on your run to work. But don’t worry, with time, like many of your fellow New York transplants, you will adjust and enjoy the friendly atmosphere of Miami.

To learn more about the events in Miami, city ad hoc regulations, news, or job opportunities, check out the official City of Miami page. It answers so many questions about settling in Miami, making the city a truly welcoming place.

How much does it cost to move from New York to Miami?

There are several moving options, depending on your budget and time. The more things you will want to do yourself, the lower your relocation costs will be.

Long-distance movers charge by the weight or volume of your household belongings. For example, hiring a professional moving company for a one-bedroom apartment may cost you between $1990 and $3200. Additional services such as special packing, extra bulky items, parking permits, among others can significantly raise the final cost of relocation.

To make sure you are getting a good price, request quotes from 3-4 reputable moving companies. It’s important that each company includes the same details and services on their quote. This way you can compare apples to apples.

How can I ship my car to Miami?

You have two main options to transport your car from New York to Miami – driving or shipping your car. However, to embark on a 19-20 hour drive in the midst of your move may not be the best idea. It will not only add unnecessary wear and tear to your car, incur expenses like gas, lodging, and food but will also require your most precious commodity – time. When shipping a car with a professional auto transporter, you avoid the stress of driving, get an all-inclusive price, and door-to-door service.

However, when you search for a car shipping company, do not base your decision solely on price. Check their reviews and the test way they communicate with customers.

To ship your car with peace of mind you need the right auto transport partner. Research and read customer reviews. Then call the companies to discover their competence and customer service level. Ask questions about how auto transport works and what is the real cost to ship a car. A trustworthy company will give you all the answers. If it is your first time shipping a car, do not worry. Corsia Logistics vehicle relocation experts will carefully study your situation and offer the best solution for you and your vehicle.

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!

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.
