Our top moving tips when moving to Miami

Making your way south to Miami means warmer winters! Along with the hotter temps, you’ll also get added humidity (especially in the summer) in this sub-tropical climate. The average temps run between 61 degrees and 91 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year.

What’s more: you’ll be packing away the sled in favor of a beach chair to see the tide come in with around 2.7 million fellow Miamians — several million fewer than your former residence in NYC. Though it’s no secret that Miami packs the heat and spice, there’s more to know about moving to this city. Here’s a few pointers to get you started:

  • El Costo de Vida (Cost of Living): You’ll be happy to know that many common living costs are lower in Miami. For instance, rent prices are about 35% cheaper than NYC. A one-bedroom apartment in the city will cost you about $2,020, as compared to about $1k more in NYC. If you’re in the market for a house, median sales prices on houses are on the rise surpassing the $500k mark. When it comes to taxes, Miamians have it made. In Miami-Dade county, there are no personal or corporate income taxes collected. The sales tax is at 7%, which is inclusive of state’s 6% rate. Voters in Miami have earmarked these funds from sales tax to finance improvements to mass transit. Speaking of what it costs to get around with public transportation, the Miami-Dade Department of Transit & Public Works has some options for you. To ride the Metrobus or Metrorail, a 1-day pass will run about $5.95 and a monthly card is $123.75. Good news! There’s contactless payment options, too. There’s also a free transit option downtown: the Metromover is a free rail service that operates 7 days a week. If you’re ready to support your new home team, one of the stops is the FTX arena (formally known as American Airlines Arena) home of the Miami Heat professional basketball team.
  • Arts and architecture: While Miami is known for many great qualities, being a major attraction in the art world is definitely one of them. See modern and contemporary creative works from all around the world featured at Art Basel, Miami Beach’s international art fair. As an art exhibition with its origins in 1970s Switzerland, the happening brings in hundreds of millions of dollars for the city. That’s just one outlet for your artistic inspiration. Miami is home to many galleries and museums showcasing amazing works of art, including the Perez Art Museum Miami, the Institute for Contemporary Art, and The Bass among others. For architecture buffs, check out Miami’s Art Deco District. Take a stroll down Ocean Avenue and gaze at the hotels and structures with tropical and pastel colors, terrazzo floors, and moulded ceilings, among other classic architectural features of the distinct 1920s art movement.
  • The Great Outdoors: Miami is certainly known for its beaches, from Sunny Isles to South Beach. However, there’s more beyond the sand and surf. What you may not have known is that Miami is home to Everglades National Park. It’s not just a typical national park, it’s also a UNESCO World Heritage Site as North America’s largest subtropical wilderness reserve. It is a complex habitat for a wide array of plants and animals — specifically noted for being a great breeding ground for wading birds. Make sure to practice caution and respect when among the animal inhabitants by keeping a distance and treading lightly along their fragile wetland homes. Other creatures of note that you’ll be sharing Miami with are bugs. Just as in the north, you may encounter some mosquitos. One you may not have met before? The palmetto bug, also called the Florida wood cockroach, prefers moist areas like those you’d find in the city. They are a larger variety of the pest and can emit a spray of stink when they are spooked — so keep a lookout! And, while you’ve got your eyes scanning, it’s good to take note of hurricane season from June 1 to November 30 each year. Miamians are advised to be prepared for hurricanes as the city is particularly susceptible to the damage that can be caused by this weather phenomenon.
  • Rich in history: Miami has a lot of flavor, and to get to the recipe, you’ve got to know where it came from. The good news is that there’s a lot of history celebrated in this city and a lot of opportunities to learn about how Miami came to be. Ready for a glimpse into frontier life in the Biscayne Bay? Book a visit to The Barnacle State Park and check out the historic home of pioneer Ralph Middleton Munroe. The Historic Overtown neighborhood, one of the oldest in Miami, was initially established as a home for African American railroad workers that has now transformed into a Black cultural hub and hot spot. There you can visit the Black Archives Historic Lyric Theater where artists such as Billie Holiday, Josephine Baker, and Sammie Davis Jr. have performed. You could also check out Little Havana’s Calle Ocho — and take a stroll down a historical lane and get a taste of the city’s Cuban culture. No matter the neighborhood, Miami’s got a lot to show you.
  • A bilingual city: Part of Miami’s past and present comes together in recognition of Spanish as one of the primary languages used in the city. Over 60% of the Miami-Dade county population (over the age of 5) speaks Spanish at home. If you don’t speak it as your primary language, it may be time to brush up on your language skills. If you’re relocating with children, you may be interested to know that pursuing bilingualism is a part of the Miami-Dade school system. In 1963, one of the city’s schools, Coral Way Elementary School, was the first publicly-funded dual language immersion program to support bilingual and biliterate studies in the country. Fast forward to the present and many schools in Florida support second language acquisition for young folks.

    Had a fantastic experience with my cross country move. Piece of Cake was very communicative every step of the way. Everyone I spoke to/ worked with was incredibly friendly. Reasonably priced and what I was quoted is what I paid - no surprise charges. The movers were nice dudes and very efficient. All of my belongings arrived in Denver without any damage. Overall they made my move relatively easy and stress free.

  • star star star star star

    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.

    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!
