Moving to Florida? A Guide for Moving Snowbirds
If you are planning to move to Florida in order to escape the snow, you’re not alone! It is becoming more common for “snowbirds” to leave their figurative wintry nest in order to enjoy the balmy weather and other benefits of Florida. If you are planning to move to Florida in the near future, consider the following guide that will help snowbirds handle their Florida move in the best way.
Why More and More “Snowbirds” are Heading to Florida
First, a bit of a note about why more and more “snowbirds” are heading to Florida. Dealing with winter weather is more than just frustrating: it can be practically impossible for many people, especially people who are reaching retirement age, are disabled, or otherwise find it difficult to navigate a world covered in ice and snow day in and day out. Florida has moderate weather all year round, so you won’t have to worry about winter-proofing the car, slipping on the ice, or finding emergency heat-sources if the power goes out in December.
Tips for Moving to Florida
If you are moving to Florida, you will need to keep a few things in mind so that the move goes as smoothly as possible. The following are some essential moving tips that you should follow during your move.
Tip: Make checklists for everything you need
One of the most important aspects of any move is the creation of checklists for everything you need. You should create a checklist for every room, as well as a checklist for items that you’ll need set aside so that they can be easily unpacked the first day you move into your new home.
Tip: Create a spreadsheet of every box
When you’re moving to an entirely new state, things are already pretty overwhelming; you can reduce the stress of moving by creating a spreadsheet for every packed box which lists what’s inside. This way, you will know exactly where to find certain items and you won’t have to dig through boxes or scramble around.
Tip: Use a moving service
Moving to Florida is a big step; and it’s a step that requires the professional knowledge, skills and equipment of a moving service company. You should use a moving service company for your planned move to Florida so that everything is securely shipped and so that you don’t have to worry about transporting your precious household objects across state lines.
