Moving Tips & Guides
Always check if movers are ...
In order to be certain that you’re hiring a reputable company to handle your move, make sure they are properly licensed and registered. All interstate movers are required to register for a DOT number (Dept. of Transportation) by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
Planning a Long Distance Move
A long distance move is defined by any move that takes you more than 50-100 miles from your old home. With a definition that is this broad, it can be used to describe a move that takes you all the way to the other side of the country, or a move that takes you to the other side of the state. But the one thing that all long distance moves have in common is that they require careful planning, and a lot of it.
Common Company Policies
If you’ll be using their packing services make sure that they do an in-house survey. It will give them a better idea of what you’ll be moving and you can ask them more questions. When loading and unloading they should have all the proper equipment to prevent damage to you items and to prevent injury to themselves and to you.
Learn to Spot Good Service
When the company gives you an estimate, a sign of good service will be them showing up to your house to do a thorough survey of the home. They should also provide you with all the documents you’re meant to have including the Bill of Lading, the inventory list and a copy of "Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move" - a booklet created by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration that lays out everything required of a moving company. Another tip is to search for reviews of the company
Pickup and Delivery Service
Want to have all of your boxes loaded onto a truck and driven to your destination, without the expenses of a full-service move? Then consider using a pickup and delivery service from your moving company. With this option, you simply pack everything yourself, and the movers will come to your house, place the goods in the truck, drive to your destination, and then unload everything.

Was convenient for me
Professional Moving Solutions-HHG
The actual move was convenient for me. They did the work well, they came on time, although they did deliver a bit late. That's ok because I understand that it takes time to deliver items for long distance. One of my tables was broken completely so I had to file a claim for that. Apart from all those things the move was ok.

Moving to Florida?


Nestled between the Atlantic and the Gulf coasts lies the state of Florida, which is one of the most densely populated states in the United States. Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon named the state Florida, which in Spanish means “feast of flowers.” The state is also known as the “Sunshine State” due to its warm climate. The culture of the state is a reflection of multiple influences, among them Native American, Hispanic, European American and African American. These influences can be found in its cuisine and architecture.

Before the invasion of colonial powers, Florida was inhabited by various Native American tribes such as the Apalachee, Calusa, Jaega and Tequesta. The Spanish were the early settlers but later on Florida became a bone of contention between the English and the Spanish. Gracia Real de Santa Teresa de Mose became the first settlement in North America that comprised of free slaves.

Florida has emerged as a favorite tourist destination with its theme parks, Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld. Crystal River is the only place where you can enjoy a supervised swim with the endangered manatees. Also, Cape Canaveral is famous for being the launch pad for various American space flights.

If you’re moving to Florida, there are a lot of things you’re going to need to know. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place.

Things to Know When Moving to Florida

Florida Climate

  • To the north of Lake Okeechobee, Florida exhibits a humid subtropical climate, while the region that is south of the lake and the coastal area exhibits a tropical climate. Owing to the tropical climate, Florida rarely experiences snow, while frost is more common during the winter months. The region of Central Florida is called the lightning capital, as it experiences more lightning strikes than anywhere else in the country. From June to November, Florida is prone to hurricanes. There is also a defined rainy season from June to September where Florida is at a much greater risk of tropical cyclones and thunderstorms. Florida is situated on a peninsula, bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and Straits of Florida. Britton Hill, standing at 345 feet, is the highest point in Florida.

Moving Specifics

  • Registering your Car: You have 10 days to register your car in Florida from the date of the beginning of your residency in the state. Registration can be done at any Florida DMV office, and you must produce proof of ownership, get your VIN number verified, and show proof of Florida insurance requirements. (Helpful Link: Florida DMV)

  • Obtaining a Florida Driver’s License: If you have a valid out-of-state license, then you can get it converted into a Florida license without having to take the written or road test by producing proof of identity, proof of Florida insurance, your original out-of-state title and verification of physical inspection of the vehicle's VIN. Every year the DMV offices issue over 800,000 licenses, so it is advised to check your requirements and prepare before going to the office.

  • Real Estate: The average listing price for homes in Florida is $413,077, while the median sales price is just over $236,000. The Florida Association of Realtors is the official real estate resource for the state of Florida.

  • Moving and Storage: If you are looking for a moving company or storage facility to help you with anything, you should check to make sure the company is registered with the United States Department of Transportation or with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. (Helpful Link: Florida State Moving Resource Page)

Schools

  • The Florida education system is made up of public and private schools, a state college system, the state university system of Florida, and independent colleges and universities. The Florida Department of Education administers public, primary and secondary schools through various boards of education established in a school district within a county. During the 2010-11 school year, a constitutional amendment was passed to limit the class size to 18 in lower grades and to 23 in high school. As a part of higher education, the state university system of Florida administers 10 public universities such as Florida Atlantic University, the University of Florida, Florida State University, the University of Miami and a public liberal arts college. About 28 community colleges and state colleges are funded and managed by the Florida college system. (Helpful Link: Florida Schools)
