From Los Angeles to Miami
Miami is a favorite spot for vacationers and businessmen alike. Every winter the city attracts hundreds of thousands of people from around the world. Despite the huge influx of international visitors, Miami remains a favorite spot for millions of Americans too. Californians, and more specifically Los Angelenos, love Miami!
If you are leaving the City of Angels to settle in Miami, whether long or short term, and taking your car with you, have you thought of how to actually transport it? Given the distance between the two cities, it is not something that can happen overnight. Good planning is key. To come up with a good plan, you’ll need to investigate and explore your options.
Why Miami could be a better choice than Los Angeles?
At first, you would not think that those living in Los Angeles would want to relocate or vacation in Miami, but it is a verifiable fact that many do. Miami is different than Los Angeles in many aspects. We can even go ahead and give you a few reasons why many Angelenos choose to call Miami home.
State income tax and sales tax
The fact is that Florida has no personal income tax and Miami sales tax is only 7 percent. California has one of the highest income taxes in the country, and the sales tax in L.A is 9 percent. Additionally, when it comes to doing business in both states, Florida wins.
L.A. rents are some of the highest in the country
Rents in Miami are high but compared to those in Los Angeles we know you will choose Miami. The rent to salary ratio in Miami vs. that in LA will definitely make a difference when it comes to lifestyle.
The air pollution is worse in L.A.
If you have ever been to Miami, then you know that the air pollution in Los Angeles is way worse. In fact, the top five most polluted cities, in certain categories, are in California, and LA ranks number one in ozone air pollution.
Nothing beats L.A. traffic
LA is notorious for its traffic. And although study after study proved Miami traffic is bad, nothing beats LA – city with the worst traffic in the entire country. Well, at least until Mr.Musk builds his tunnels.
Hurricanes over earthquakes
Many people say that they prefer a hurricane over an earthquake. Some may wonder at that. But at least hurricanes are predictable while earthquakes just happen without warning. Big hurricanes tend to affect South Florida coast more often than major earthquakes hit LA. Although small quakes in L.A. happen so often that there is an automated Twitter feed dedicated to tracking them.
