What to know about moving in Miami

What is the cost of living in Miami?

On average, the cost of living in Miami is $1,835 per month.1 While this average can vary based on home size, location, or market values, it places Miami 23rd on our list of most expensive US cities.

Cost of living that is not far behind cities like Denver, Colorado, and Portland, Oregon, is a top reason to sway people away from Miami. Paradoxically, it was one of the top cities people moved away from last year, and Florida was the number one state people moved to.2 While many are concerned about its cost of living and high prevalence of natural disasters, others are attracted to the East Coast’s second-largest metro and find it a lively place to settle down, visit, and retire.

Where can the moving truck park to pick up my stuff?

This answer can vary depending on your location in Miami. If you need to park your truck downtown, finding an open area with enough space for the movers to operate could be more of a hassle. If your movers park the moving truck in a more residential area, such as Pinecrest, they will likely have an easier time finding space. Apartments and condos often have designated areas for loading and unloading, but be sure to check with your renter beforehand to locate those areas.

If you don’t want to leave this to chance, talk with your moving company and ensure that it has a plan in place. More often than not, local companies know the area well and can find parking.

Will I need a certificate of insurance to move into an apartment or condo in Miami?

It’s likely you’ll need a certificate of insurance (COI) in order to move into a new apartment or condo in Miami. A COI shows that you are insured on any damages. This is something to discuss with your new property managers before moving day. So if you aren’t sure, give them a call.

All moving companies are liable for the value of the household goods they deliver.3 However, you can purchase insurance with more detailed third-party insurance coverage if you choose.

What will I need to do on the actual moving day?

There are a lot of steps to take that can prepare you for moving day and help you focus on getting your belongings from your old home to your new one. It’s especially important to be ready to discuss with your movers where you want your furniture or heavy boxes in your new home.

Summer in Miami can be muggy, so make sure that you and your movers take frequent breaks throughout the day. Be as flexible as you can, treat your movers well (consider tipping for excellent service), and you’ll settle into your new Miami home in no time!
