Experienced in moving you from NY to Florida

Florida has long been a summer playground for New Yorkers but increasingly they’re leaving behind the subway and noise to move there full time.

What’s not to love about the Sunshine State? Warmer weather, no personal income tax, a lower cost of living than Manhattan, increased living space and do we need to mention the beaches?

From Tallahassee to Jacksonville and Orlando to Miami, Piece of Cake regularly moves New Yorkers to all the major cities and towns of Florida. With a driving time of up to 21 hours, we use our East Coast experience to give professionals, couples, families, students and retirees, a hassle free relocation.

Piece of Cake can professionally pack, load and transport your belongings with real time tracking over the entire journey to Florida and offers a full unpacking service after we’ve arrived at your new home if you need a door to door option.

Our top moving tips when moving to Florida

Palm trees dotted across the state hint that Florida’s one of only two in the country that are considered tropical climates, along with Hawaii. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico and the states of Alabama and Georgia, much of Florida is at sea level.

There’s no denying, the weather is a huge drawcard for many of its 21 million residents. But there’s so much more to consider about Florida before moving there.

  • Tax relief. Floridians don’t pay any state or city personal income tax, capital gains tax, estate tax and on the flipside have easier bankruptcy laws. Combined with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act which has made buying a home in New York even more expensive, properties here are now more accessible than in the city that never sleeps.
  • Extremes. The state records the highest average temperatures in the country at Key West however it also sees some extreme conditions to be aware of. These include hurricanes, tornadoes, waterspouts, Category 4 storms and more lightning strikes than anywhere else in the country. It also has one of the highest average rainfall rates in the country, so once you settle in, be sure to be prepared for any conditions.
  • Cost of Living. Essentials such as food and groceries, housing, utilities, health and transportation are recorded on major indices to be cheaper in Florida than New York City. While you can find some outrageously luxurious properties in centres like Miami Beach, other parts of the city offer affordable alternatives with water views like in Downtown Miami. There are public transit options in all major centres, Amtrak lines, and for travel further afield Florida is home to 7 major airports led by Orlando and Miami.
  • Economic Drivers. Unsurprisingly tourism and agriculture are major contributors to the local economy, and phosphate mining is the state’s 3rd largest industry. Government is also a major employer, with 24 military bases in the state and of course NASA at Cape Canaveral. Other major sectors include trade and transportation, business services, health and education services. Coincidentally, Florida has the largest university by enrollment in the country at the University of Florida, while the state was recently ranked 7th in America for quality education at all levels.
  • The great outdoors. No matter where you are in Florida you are never more than 60 miles away from a body of salt water but you might want to get a car as Florida has more than 12,000 miles of highway traversing the state. From touring wetlands, to visiting theme parks like Universal Studios Orlando and Walt Disney World, snorkelling in the Florida Keys, hiking the National Florida Scenic Trail or the lush Everglades there’s no shortage of adventure in Florida. If none of that is your idea of relaxing, Florida also has more golf courses than any other state. Whatever you choose, don’t forget the bug spray.
  • Food to match the lifestyle. Florida’s known for its fresh oranges and produces most of the citrus fruit in the United States. Other quintessential cuisine includes key lime pie, seafood like fresh crabs, fish, clams, shrimp, and oysters, Cubano’s (or Cuban Sandwiches) and Caribbean classics like fried conch. Could they be any more different to New York hotdogs and bagels?

    Leaving my childhood home in New York City to move to Miami was not easy. Neither was finding a mover. After interviewing four others, the choice was quite simple after speaking to Piece Of Cake. Professional, compassionate, affordable and accommodating are just a few of the accolades I could assign them! Everything was delivered to my new home a few days ago by an expert crew that even helped assemble larger items. It truly doesn't get better than this! Milo and his team deserve nothing but my heartfelt thanks!

    Recently used A Piece Of Cake Moving and Storage for a relocation from NYC to Miami. Very leery of moving companies due to all the horror stories I have been hearing. I cannot not say enough positive comments about this company. Every leg of the move went smoothly, from the intake department, to the NYC moving crew, to the long distance driving department and lastly the Miami moving crew. Everyone was professional and courteous. Ongoing communication the entire time Highly recommend this company.

    Long-distance move experience: From NYC to Tampa: 7 days from pickup to delivery Everything went smoothly; good communication with company regarding updates via email. Upon delivery of furniture, screws were missing for footings of couch, but crew went to Home Depot and returned within 2 hours to finish the job. Overall, great experience and awesome price!

    This superior moving company is #1 in NYC and, in my view, in the USA! I contacted Piece of Cake in May 2022 when my 87 year old Mum decided to move from Westchester NY to Jacksonville. From the first contact, during the unprecedented busyness of the moving business during this housing market boom, Patricia proved again and again her knowledge, expertise, guidance and availability. The move was, as the cliche goes, a piece of cake. I am grateful and relieved to this business for their competence, courtesy and excellence.

    Thank you to Sasa, Stephen and Johnny for making this move so incredibly easy. They called 15 mins before arriving and had my storage space completely moved out in 1 hour. They were very professional, fast, hard working and nice. I would highly recommend this company!! Can't wait for all my items to arrive at my new home in Florida.

    From start to finish my move was a great experience. I immediately got a quote. The scheduling was easy, and they provided me with information regarding insurance coverage (and took care of the paperwork my building provided). The move itself went like clockwork. The movers arrived on time and texted me when they were on their way with an ETA to the delivery site. They moved everything up the 3 flights of stairs into my apartment quickly and safely. A great company that provides great service at very reasonable rates.

    I was amazed how efficient the guys were. they sorted out my items to be removed and, went straight to work. We will definitely use A Piece of Cake multiple times in the future until, we officially make the BIG MOVE! THANKS FOR YOUR HELP....YES, IT WAS A PIECE OF CAKE! NO STRESS INVOLVED...JUST SWEET SERVINGS.....

    Was very easy to call and set up a move. The price was good to. I had some mix-ups and needed to add items and even change the date, but they were able to easily accommodate. Day of the move the crew was super nice and professional. They quickly packed up the entire apartment with ease, I didn't really lift a finger. They made what is usually a stressful day pretty easy.

    They came at zero hour after the moving company I initially hired and paid a deposit to canceled. I was freaking out about my move not happening at all but they did get this done and my stuff arrived more or less intact and accounted for. They handled changes and snafus gracefully and earned their money. Hopefully I won't be moving again for a long time but if I get forced into that again, I'll remember this experience.

    They were awesome! They take everything apart and then re assemble for you.They wrap up your tvs and glass shit professionally. They take the legs off your couch so it fits through doors. Everything's wrapped until it's inside so it doesn't ruin the paint on your walls if they rub against them.Not even a wine glass was chipped.

    Jose and his team did a great job moving my husband and I. They arrived on time and were very organized. They were professional, courteous and moved us quickly. They wrapped our furniture very well. They took apart and put together our bed and sectional couch. We were very pleased and would recommend them.

    Piece of Cake Moving was phenomenal to work with. From the initial sale, to the follow up, to the day of delivery. The moving crew themselves were a dream to work with. I honestly don't know how they managed to move everything we'd accumulated over the years in such a short (relatively) period of time. Will definitely use them again (in hopefully 7-8 years).
