Our top moving tips when moving to Orlando

Feelin’ hot, hot, hot! Or, at least warmer than New York on average. Orlando has a tropical climate with average highs just above 90 degrees Fahrenheit in July and the coldest average temp is around 49 degrees in January.

The rainy season is between June and September each year and winters are mild. On average though, you’ll be enjoying a breezy and warm 72 degrees. Over time, you may feel that any temps below that will make you reach for your parka once again!

You’ll be living and working with about 287,442 central Floridians in your new city as you adjust to the local climate.

But, before you slather on sunscreen and grab your place in line for the next theme park ride, check out a few must-knows before moving to Orlando:

  • Cost of living: Taxes are a part of everyone’s lives… but residing in the state of Florida means you don’t have to worry about state income tax! As you’re factoring that into your take-home pay, you’ll be happy to know that many things cost less in Orlando as compared to New York City. In fact, rent is over 50% cheaper in Orlando, with the median monthly rent running about $1,169. Those who opt for homeownership and have a mortgage have a median monthly payment of $1,629. Trying out the cuisine du jour in Orlando will be about 33% less expensive than in the Big Apple — so make sure to order dessert, too. If you need to catch a ride there, public transit options are available in Orlando including the SunRail (at $3.75 round trip fare) and Lynx, offering bus and vanpool options (between $2.00 one-trip fare and $50 for a monthly pass). They may be good options to avoid traffic with the 68 million visitors the city sees every year.
  • History and culture: An interesting note about Orlando is that the origin story of the city’s namesake is unclear. There are a few theories ranging from being named after a character in Shakespeare’s play “As You Like It” to the name of one of the military members who fought in the Seminole Wars. Could be a new fun pastime to discuss it with some of the fellow locals. Further discovering the history of the city may lead you to the Wells’Built House, a hotel-turned-museum that commemorates African American history in Orlando. If page-turning is a favorite pastime of yours, you may also visit the Jack Keroauc house. The author lived for a time in Orlando while he penned his book The Dharma Bums. You can also get your fill of the arts and sciences at the Orlando Museum of Art and the Orlando Science Center!
  • Like a local: When you’re ready to begin acclimating to the City Beautiful, there may be a few places and events that would be worth checking out. Make a visit to the East End Market to peruse local shops and grab a taste of what your neighbors are eating, including a world-class ramen restaurant. Once you’ve had your fill, pop on over to Orlando Flea to see what the area artisans have crafted. After sunset on the second Thursday of each month, you and the whole family can enjoy a free outdoor movie with Popcorn Flicks in the Park. For those who find that Fests are best, Orlando’s got great offerings with the Orlando Film Fest and Orlando Chili Cookoff. And there’s no forgetting about you, #1 fans — ready yourself to root on the home teams including the Orlando Magic NBA team, the Orlando Solar Bears ice hockey team, and the Orlando City Soccer Club.
  • The Other Parks (and Recreation): If the theme parks aren’t your jam or you need a break from all the rides, you can take some time to enjoy the other parks in the area. There’s over 100 of them in Orlando alone, so you’re bound to find a few you’ll enjoy. Tree huggers can wrap their arms around the city’s oldest tree — between 350 and 400 years old — at Big Tree Park. Or, head on over to Colonel Joe Kittinger Park, where you’ll find a refurbished F-4 Phantom aircraft from the Vietnam war… along with a playground, of course. If you’re hoping to head out of town for a short jaunt, you may make your way over to the Orlando Wetlands (actually located in Christmas, FL), a man-made park designed to treat reclaimed water. Beyond this functional purpose, it’s a place to catch a glimpse of wildlife, do some horseback riding, and take guided tours of the grounds.
  • Industries in the City Beautiful: Service industry is the biggest in hiring in the area. It’s no surprise, as Travel and Tourism are some of the key industries in Orlando. Others include digital media and modeling, simulation, and training for aerospace, aviation, healthcare, entertainment, medical technology, homeland security, and more. Beyond the theme parks, some of the other larger companies that are headquartered in Orlando include AAA and Darden Restaurant Group (parent company to Olive Garden, Longhorn Steakhouse, and Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen). Siemens, Lockhead Martin, and Deloitte all have a regional office in the city as well.

    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.

    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.

  • star star star star star

    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.

  • star star star star star

    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.

  • star star star star star

    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.....

  • star star star star star

    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).

    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.

  • star star star star star

    Nicholas and Giga made this moving experience an easy one, especially since I was moving alone. They were punctual, kind and very thoughtful. When we arrived to my apartment? They helped unwrap all the packing tape and set up my furniture and bed - something that would take probably days for me. They delivered excellent service and went beyond my expectations.

  • star star star star star

    Excellent moving company. I hired 2 men for 2 hours to complete 1 bedroom move. They arrived early, were extremely efficient, helpful, personable, strong, and careful. They finished the job with 45 min to spare. Everything went extremely smoothly. I would hire Piece of Cake again.

    Great move with POC movers! I rented their pink bins which was an excellent choice, they provide plenty of packing paper, zip ties, and tags. My team arrived right at the start of their arrival window and quickly and safely packed all my bins and furniture into their truck. The team just as efficiently unloaded everything, leaving the bins in the labeled rooms and re assembling my bed frame. I definitely recommend renting their bins. I would definitely use Piece of Cake movers again and recommend them to a friend.

    The movers were so professional, friendly and quick. They took such great care of my stuff. I happened to move on one of the hottest days of the year and felt so bad. They were gracious and so still worked quickly. Pls make sure you tip your movers good, they work hard and were really great!

  • star star star star star

    I had made an appointment from another moving company that completely screwed me over the day of. I called every moving company in New York freaking out, and Piece of Cake was willing to come at 7pm to help me move, last minute. I genuinely don't know what I would have done if they didn't go out of their way to fit me in. Anytime in the future I will be using piece of cake moving! They boxed and unboxed so fast and efficiently, it was amazing!
