Moving to Florida is always a fun experience, no matter the age. If you are a senior moving to Florida, we want you to know that you will definitely enjoy it, no matter where you go. Miami, Orlando, Jacksonville or any others – there is always something to do in Florida. Thus, we have prepared a short moving guide to help you get there. We sincerely hope that you will enjoy it and that you will find it useful. So, without any further ado, let us begin!

What do you need to know if you are a senior moving to Florida?

There are some things you should know beforehand. Do not worry, all of them are quite good! No matter where you go, you can always experience the following:

  • Amazing food. Florida is known for its amazing food. No matter where you are in this beautiful state, you will always eat like a king. From pizzas and burgers and other fast foods to hearty meals cooked at home – you name it, it is there! Forget about anything, you will be in Florida soon, we hope that you are hungry!
  • Great people. People in Florida are amazing. We can proudly say that we have rarely met people who are as friendly as the ones in there. People from New York, for example, will very rarely have time for you. But people from Miami will usually entertain you with a decent story or a game of chess in the park. 
  • Parks and water. If you are a fan of water (rivers, ocean, etc) and parks (both casual and entertainment), you are in the right place! Florida is known for its amazing fish from the local rivers, lakes and the ocean as well for its numerous parks. You can enjoy nature to the fullest in there. All you need to do is to come!

What to do to move to Florida?

Well, as with anything else, you need to do some things before your move. If you are a senior moving to Florida, we highly recommend the following:

  • Hire a moving company. This might be the best option. You have worked a lot in the previous decades, it is time to relax now and to let others work for you a bit. A moving company is the best choice. Not only will you get your work done for you, but you won’t have to worry about what not to wear on your moving day. There are other benefits as well – less packing, less stress and more relaxing. We highly recommend this option for you.
  • Do the packing on your own. This might be a bit hard, depending on what you need to pack, but you can at least do some parts of it. Make the ultimate packing checklist and stick to it. It will help you with your move immensely. Moreover, it will allow you to focus on the other aspects of your move. It really comes down to you – you can either do it alone or let others do it for you. But make a checklist either way – it will be a life-saver!
  • Learn more about moving. One can never be sure enough. You should learn a bit more about how moving functions and try to make it work for yourself as well. Moreover, you can check a brief guide on long-distance moving, just to make sure. The more you know, the better!

Keep this in mind if you are a senior moving to Florida:

All new beginnings can be hard at first. Despite Florida being an amazing state, you might feel lonely or depressed once you actually move there. This should last for a few weeks and up to a month. However, this is quite normal! If you are moving alone, you might miss your friends and family and you might miss your former home. However, do not worry! There are methods of coping with this and you can read more about them online.

Feel free to hire the services of a moving company - they exist for a reason!

Moreover, you can make up some of your own methods. Remember, no one knows you better than you do, so do not worry about anything and make your stay in Florida as memorable as possible! Also, you can always rely on the people in Florida to be there for you. A game of chess here and there and your post-move blues will be gone just like that! Trust us, better ways exist, but meeting the people in Florida is one of the best ways to cure your post-move depression!


Overall, we have agreed that Florida is amazing no matter if you are a teenager or a senior moving to Florida. So, do not waste more time – hire a moving company and get your estimate.
