Experienced in moving you from NY to Tallahassee

If you’ve got a lot to gain by making your way down south to the capital city of the Sunshine state. For one, you’ll be among the most educated population in the state, with most residents having at least a bachelor’s degree (or higher).

Our top moving tips when moving to Tallahassee

You’ll be switching it up on your way down south to your new home quite a bit. Sure, the sun does shine on New Yorkers, but you’ll enjoy even more of it in Tallahassee — averaging 233 days of sunshine a year! And, you can probably pass on packing your snow boots, that type of precipitation is just not common in central Florida.

You may also be downsizing a bit — in terms of population that is! Tallahassee has just under 200,000 residents, which may be a reduction in people density for some relocating from NY.

While there may be fewer people, there’s a lot to know about moving to this part of the Sunshine state:

  • College town: Study up! Tallahassee is home to a few institutions of higher education, including Florida State University (FSU), Florida A&M University (a.k.a. FAMU; one of the largest historically black universities in the country), and Tallahassee Community College. With this comes many students, tailgating, employment, and great educational opportunities. This also brings a lot of action and energy to the city that will be really attractive to some.
  • Driving: Grab your keys and your license — having a car in this city is commonplace. Public transportation is available through the city’s StarMetro bus system; that said, you’ll need to consider if this option will take you where you want to go. One-way rides will run about $1.25 and a monthly pass is $38. On the plus side, FSU and FAMU students ride for free when they show their student ID card. If you do decide to have a car, it’s good to note that traffic can get quite heavy during college football season. But, you’ll enjoy a short commute to most places that’ll take you no more than 20 minutes on average, including getting to work. Tallahassee is also within a reasonable driving distance of other quick get-aways, including Orlando and New Orleans, LA.
  • Cost of living: For those new Floridians in need of picking up a few sunshine essentials, you’ll find that the sales tax is a tad lower than some parts of New York. Florida state tax is at 6% and Leon County adds 1.5%. What is different from NY though? There’s no state income tax! Another bonus of moving south is the cost of housing. It’ll be about 67% less to pay for housing in Tallahassee than it is in NYC. For those paying rent every month, median rents are around $1,023 per month. Those with mortgages in the city will pay a bit more per month, with the median mortgage payment at $1459. Lower costs also translate to dining out at restaurants in the Florida state capital and monthly gym memberships, too.
  • On Land and Water: Tallahassee is situated in the central part of the state, but plenty of beaches are within driving distance. For instance, Mashes Sands Beach in Wakulla county is about a 35 mile drive away; you could certainly make a day of it with friends without much hassle. Maybe something in town is more your flavor of the day. You could check out Lake Ella to take a stroll around the water and visit some of the quaint artist cottage shops while you’re there. If hiking or some history is how you like to enjoy the outdoors, this city’s got some of that as well. Civil War buffs may want to check out Natural Bridge Battlefield Historical Park, the site of the largest Civil War battle in the state. There’s picnic and fishing areas as well, so the whole family can enjoy. You can dig a bit further into the state’s history at the Lake Jackson Mounds Archeological State Park and check out a few Native American earthen temple mounds. There’s much to be seen and enjoyed in Tallahassee’s landscape.
  • Working in Central FL: Being a college town and state capital, it may come as no surprise that the biggest employers are the education and public administration sectors in the city. Healthcare, law, finance, non-profits, manufacturing, technology and start-ups are other notable industries in Tallahassee. Entrepreneurial resources can also be found in the city. These include the Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship and Domi Station, a coworking space offering sources of support and connection for launching and scaling up ventures. That said, because of the city’s proximity to the state line, some folks may also opt to live in Tallahassee, but commute to Georgia for work.

    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.

    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.

    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.....

    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!

    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!
