Moving From Florida to Georgia

Moving to a new home is always exciting, and moving to a whole different state with diverse neighborhoods and southern charm with awesome culture scene adds an extra layer of adventure and complication to the endeavor. On average, 3 million Americans relocate to another state each year- typically for job opportunities. Moving from Florida to Georgia might just be over the state line, but it could be 700 miles if you go all the way from Miami to northern Georgia. And there is a lot of territory to cover in between. The average interstate relocation cost about $4,100, so it makes sense to look carefully for the right moving services.

How can I find the best Professional Moving Company from Florida to Georgia?

Finding the right company to handle your move from north or south Florida to Georgia will require some time, but with some effort, you can find a great partner and rest assured that your move will proceed smoothly. You have a lot to do, and you don’t need the stress of wondering if you have engaged a shady operator. The good news is that most moving companies are honest and hard-working, just like you. There are small independent firms and others that work as agents of national van lines or franchisees of major chains. No matter which kind of business you choose, you can find a vendor that will take care of your family’s important belongings and get you situated in your new home.

How do I start the process of finding a mover for my relocation from South Florida to Georgia?

The best way to start the process of finding a mover is by weeding out movers that do not register with the FMCSA. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is the part of the Department of Transportation that regulates moving companies, as well as buses and other commercial motor vehicles. While its primary goal is to decrease the number of deaths and injuries caused by accidents during interstate commerce, FMCSA also works to protect consumers from fraud perpetrated by movers and brokers. By registering, the movers agree to abide by the rules that FMCSA established.

You can go to the FMCSA website and learn about the requirements movers and brokers must follow to maintain compliance with these federal regulations. There is a helpful publication available there (and the long distance  moving companies will also make this available to you) titled Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Are Moving. In just 25 easy-to-read pages, the pamphlet explains the key terms you need to understand about moving and tells you what the long distance Florida movers must do to comply with federal requirements. It also details your responsibilities as a consumer.

What should I look for in a good mover For My Upcoming Move?

Good Georgia movers that you want to do business with will take the time necessary to reassure you about the move process. If interstate movers are hesitant to come to your residence to complete a visual inspection of the household goods you want to move, that is a red flag. That physical survey is one of the requirements for interstate moves, and the mover should be happy to do it. If the company asks you to waive the requirement and wants to produce an estimate based on your verbal description of the shipment, choose another mover.

After the survey or walkthrough, the mover will give you an inventory, which is sometimes called a cube sheet or a table of measurements. This is a comprehensive list of everything in your house that you tell them you are moving. Read through it and verify that it includes everything. The inventory must be accurate because it is the basis for the weight estimate, which in turn provides the bulk of the cost of the move. The critical element in pricing a long-haul move is the weight and distance, which comprise the line haul charges. Essentially, it is the cost of transportation. The rest of the quote consists of the labor costs for loading and unloading the truck, and any other services you may request or need, such as packing of boxes, crating specialty items for transport, extra labor for stair carries, etc. You may also have to pay for some things that you can’t control, like storage, if you have to spend time in temporary housing at your destination before you can accept the delivery of your shipment. Your full-service moving company will be able to manage the delivery of your load into storage and then to your new home when you can accept it.

What kind of estimate is best for my move from Florida to Georgia?

In the moving industry, the best estimate for you depends on you and your circumstances and comes as a free quote. What matters is that you understand the difference between the types of moving costs, and how the choice can impact what you pay. If you get a non-binding estimate, the moving company tells you what they think the shipment weighs, and what it will cost to move if they are right. If they are correct, no surprises when you accept delivery, and they hand over the invoice. But if the representative who assessed the weight was way off, the bill could be quite a bit higher, and you must pay it. Note: there is a limit to what the company can ask you to pay on the day of delivery, but not on what they can bill you for later. A company that is looking to deceive you may conflate the two things, so be wary.  

With a binding estimate, you have a guaranteed price. If the mover underestimates the weight, the price doesn’t increase, unless you add something that isn’t on the inventory or request additional services. There are some services you may have to pay for unexpectedly at the destination. These are called impracticable operations, and they aren’t frequent, but be prepared if you need to pay for extra labor. These fees generally result from obstacles to delivery, such as parking problems that require a shuttle, or logistic issues like narrow stairways or challenging driveways. Again, there are limits to the amount that you will have to pay on the delivery day, but more may be billed to you later.

Finally, there is a binding not-to-exceed estimate, which can go down, but not up. If the shipment’s weight is less than the company predicted, the line-haul charges will be lower, but if the weight is higher, the price will remain constant.

What if something goes wrong with my move? West Palm Beach to Georgia Moving

Fortunately, most moves with reputable moving companies are handled professionally and proceed smoothly when moving from Florida to any city in Georgia. But things can go wrong. Top movers must inform you in advance about their dispute settlement and arbitration programs, and they will offer you two choices for protecting the value of your shipment. Make sure that you understand the options and choose the one that is right for you. If you have items of exceptional value, consider making special arrangements to protect them. If something is lost or damaged, report the problem to the mover as soon as you discover it, and try to resolve it with the mover. If you are not able to obtain a satisfactory result, proceed to the arbitration. FMCSA reports that while many customers file claims, most achieve resolution without litigation. Remember, that’s another good reason to stick with movers registered with the DOT.
