How to choose movers in Tallahassee

skyline

Whether it’s the lure of a government job, beautiful outdoor adventures or affordable higher education, Tallahassee is a great place to relocate. Over the past few years, Tallahassee’s population has increased slightly, which could be a testament to its high economic growth rate. Tallahassee is also rather affordable with the median gross rent only costing $957 monthly, according to the U.S. Census.

During peak months (April, May, August, September) moving rates are higher since college students are moving apartments to start or end the academic year. You may also want to plan for rain since it rains fairly often in Tallahassee, no matter the season.

Whether you’re moving to Tallahassee or leaving it, consider the following factors when planning your move.

Apartment vs. house:

Tallahassee’s numerous apartment complexes are popular with students, but many have small parking lots that are hard to navigate with large vehicles. If you’re moving into housing advertised as student apartments, consider moving during non-peak times when parking is more available. You may need to pay for stair or elevator fees as well. You will have an easier time moving into a house so long as the truck can park in front of it.

How far are you moving?

Are you moving within Tallahassee or from a different city or state? Moving within Florida is intrastate and movers must be registered with the Florida Department of Agriculture. Moving to or from out of state can cost substantially more. Generally, when you move locally you pay hourly. When you move long distance, you may pay per mile. Consider using a local company when relocating within the city since they specialize in local moves and will know less busy routes and times to move.

How much stuff are you moving?

The more stuff you have, the more labor it takes and the bigger the truck you’ll need, both of which increase the cost. Try to accurately calculate the volume of your belongings so that your moving quote will be closer to the final cost. Items that are heavy or require special care, such as pianos or aquariums, may be subject to additional fees.

How firm are your moving dates?

Since it rains here often, having flexibility in your schedule is a bonus. Being able to postpone moving when it rains may save you money since movers can work more efficiently in dry weather.
