Moving from Florida to Canada

Published by Chris Townsend

Moving from Florida to Canada

Moving from Florida to Canada can be a long and tedious process. Depending on the size of the move and other factors such as your specific location within Florida and where exactly you’re moving to in Canada, it can take up to a whole month to complete the move.

Cost is another crucial consideration. The exact cost varies depending on where you currently live and the specific province and neighborhood in Canada to which you’re moving. However, most movers charge up to $7,000 (US dollars).

How to Choose the Right Mover

Suppose you’ve already settled on a location and neighborhood and prepared the necessary documents, including your passport, visa, and social security number. In that case, the following tips should help you find the right cross-country mover for the trip.

  1. Choose a local company

Choosing a moving company from the local area that you know inside and out can make all the difference. That’s because local companies are generally friendlier and tend to be more competent. Just remember, however, that you’ll need a cross-country mover for the job.

  1. Get recommendations

You can always ask for referrals from friends and family. However, if you fail, consider expanding the base to your social circles and recognized organizations such as the American Moving and Storage Association. You can also check popular forums.

  1. Do your homework

So, you’ve identified a few cross-country moving companies, but are they reputable? Can you trust them? There’s only one way to find out – through proper screening. Check with the Department of Transportation for registration details and the Better Business Bureau to ascertain the credibility of each candidate on your list.

  1. Compare quotes

This doesn’t necessarily mean that you give the job to the cheapest mover on your list. Instead, it means you should at least shop around to see if you can save money. For instance, some long-distance movers offer free loading and unloading services. Others may also offer free packing boxes. These are excellent saving opportunities.

What Else Should I Keep In Mind When Moving?

You should be able to avoid any trouble if you pick the right mover. However, it sometimes helps to keep the following in mind;

  • Specialization

All movers are not the same. Though they all relocate people, the majority have specialized in selected areas. For instance, some are exclusively apartment movers while others are office movers. Meanwhile, others are full-service movers. Choose wisely.

  • Car shipping isn’t always included

Are you bringing the car along? Always ask rather than assuming that the quote includes a car shipment. That’s because some movers don’t handle car shipping, and of those that do, the majority will charge car shipping separately.

  • Moving insurance protects you

About 20% of long-distance moves have cases of missing and damaged items. That’s one in five. It means you shouldn’t just sit and hope that everything will be fine. And that’s when insurance comes in handy. Make sure to hire an insured mover and consider getting additional insurance separately.

  • Moving scams are real

Unfortunately, the moving industry is riddled with cases of scams and fraudulent activities. People lose millions of dollars every year to missing items, lost deposits, and non-deliveries. Don’t be the next victim. Keenly scrutinize every mover on your shortlist and make sure the one you ultimately pick is properly registered, licensed, and positively reviewed.
