If you’re considering living in Florida you’ll find that there are a number of good reasons for moving to that state. You’ve probably already realized the advantages of making the move.
But it sometimes takes a long time to decide if relocating is the right thing to do, so it’s a good idea to take a while to think about the details before you decide if it’s right for you.
Each year, a lot of people move to new homes in the United States. Around 12 percent of the population, or about 35 million people, leave their current residence for a new domicile. A number of families and individuals from across the country relocate to Florida, and they often find that it can be an exciting adventure.
If you’re new to Florida, there are many new sights and experiences in store for you. Numerous guidebooks and online sites supply an almost endless inventory of information about every conceivable benefit that the state offers.
Among your first decisions will be selecting the best places to live in Florida. Do you prefer life in the city, a small town or in the country? You can find a variety of options that will fit the kind of environment that suits you best. The next step is to choose several different locations that fit your preferences, and then look at the advantages that each provides. If you have friends or relatives you’d like to be near, that can help you narrow down the options. They can also probably help you make a good decision by providing advice and inside information.
Once you’ve considered the many advantages and opportunities the state offers, you’ll probably be asking yourself, should I move to Florida, to another state that’s also interesting, or should I stay in my current state? It all depends on your reasons for moving. Sometimes your circumstance can help to make your choices clear. If you’re relocating for a new job, for instance, that makes your decision easier. Otherwise, you must weigh the benefits that you’ll reap by making the move.
Economic decisions always play a role when it comes to making a move, so you’ll, of course, want to consider the cost of living in Florida. Taxes, fees, the price of real estate and many other factors determine how far your money will go in any geographic location. You can look at the cost of food, utilities, and other day-to-day or year-to-year expenses and make your own calculations. Or, find an online cost-of-living calculator and let it do the work for you.
There’s a great deal of information that you’ll want to consider if you’d like to move to Florida, and that may take a bit or research on your part. The time you invest in finding the facts will be worthwhile, most likely. Should you decide to make the move you’ll feel more confident about your decision, and you’ll likely have a good idea of what to expect in your new home.
Registering a Car in Florida and Getting a Florida Drivers License
It can be challenging to get around almost everywhere without your own source of transportation, so it’s a good idea to ensure that you know the rules of the road and any new regulations that you’ll be obliged to follow. When you’re moving to Florida, the DMV will likely be among the many stops you’ll want to make as soon as you begin to get settled. Start out by looking at the Florida.gov DMV website. It supplies a lot of the information you’ll need to know and can save you a lot of time.
You’re probably most interested in finding out the facts about transferring your car registration, such as how much it will cost and how soon you must make a transfer after becoming a resident of the state. Fortunately, you can find all of that information online.
Another top question for motorists taking up residence in the state is what do I have to do about my driver’s license? Again, you’ll find all of the facts that you need to know on the government site. In addition, you can learn about all of the rules associated with registering a car in Florida.
Moving to Florida with Guns
If you’re an outdoorsman and are moving to Florida with guns, you’ll want to know what regulations and licensing procedures you’re facing.
Florida is a “shall issue” state, and issues concealed carry licenses to both residents and non-residents. Florida recognizes licenses from any other state which recognizes Florida’s license, provided the non-resident individual is a resident of the other state and is at least 21 years old or may be under 21 if the applicant is a member or veteran of the United States Armed Forces.
Florida is considered accommodating to guns, by national standards. There are 56 laws relating to owning, transporting, and using guns. Convicted felons have few rights to gun possession.
Anyone lawfully carrying a firearm in a concealed manner may briefly and openly display the firearm to the ordinary sight of another person, unless the firearm is intentionally displayed in an angry or threatening manner, not in necessary self-defense.
Currently, Florida’s Concealed Weapon License is one of the most widely recognized, state-issued concealed weapon license. The resident Florida Concealed Weapon License is recognized in 35 different states, while the non-resident Florida Concealed Weapon License is recognized in 30 states.
You may find that the gun laws in Florida are more lenient or more restrictive than the laws in the state that you are moving from. In either case it’s a good idea to contact your local law enforcement agency to ensure that you’re getting the most up-to-date rules and regulations, whether you’re moving to Florida with a handgun rifle or shotgun.
5 Ultimate Tips for Moving to Florida
Relocating to a new state can be a tricky business, so you’ll certainly benefit by picking up any tips to make moving to Florida a little easier. Here’s a handful of items that will help you get started:
- Expect temperatures in the high 80s or 90s every single day of summer. Expect to be wearing shorts and short sleeves on New Year’s Day. Florida will experience a cold snap or two every winter.
- There is no spot in Florida to move to that will guarantee you don’t get hit by a hurricane, although the most likely locations are the southern tip, the east coast and the gulf coast along the panhandle.
- People in Florida tend to dress less formally than in other areas of the country. In large part, this is due to the often sweltering heat conditions, but there is also the proximity of sand to so many places.
- Public transportation in most Florida towns and cities is limited to buses. Due to the low elevation, a subway is simply not feasible.
- The single worst aspect of transportation as it relates to Florida is hurricane evacuation. One of the best pieces of advice a newcomer can receive is to learn to evacuate early; otherwise, plan on spending an hour in your car to move 10 miles.
It’s never exactly easy to make such a big decision as moving, particularly if you plan to move to another part of the country that’s far away. But you’re probably taking the time to think about all of the pluses and minuses that you may encounter. So, when you make up your mind, and you’ve decided to go, and you have your heart set on a new, exciting destination that you’ll soon call home, take the leap! You can count on Trico Long Distance Movers and our reliable Illinois movers to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible. So feel free to give us a call, and we can organize your moving day.
