Common Questions When Moving Within or To Miami
Where can I find boxes for my Miami movers?
We have put together a great guide on where to find boxes for your move. Whether you are staying within Florida and making a move down south to Miami, moving within the city, or picking up from another state in search of warmer temperatures and white sand beaches, FlatRate has your moving needs covered...from service to advice.
One more thing to note, is that street closures for parades, construction and celebrations are normal in the city and could delay transit. This site, as well as your local Bronx movers, can keep you in the loop on any festivities happening around the time of your scheduled move.
When is the best time of year to move in Miami?
Afternoon thunderstorms are common from May through October, but FlatRate will ensure your move happens flawlessly! We keep your move on track despite in light of the weather, so that you can spend your time enjoying the abundant sunshine that this region is known for. Keep in mind, however, that hurricane season is from June 1 through November 30. And while hurricanes have occurred outside of this time frame, these dates encompass over 97% of tropical activity.
Rest assured though, that when you move to this area, we are familiar with the climate, and our temperature-controlled trucks will keep your items protected from any weather-related elements during the transport.
Which highways should I avoid when moving in Miami?
With the seventh worst traffic in the United States, you will want to know which roads to avoid to make your move as seamless as possible. Of course, your Miami movers already know the area pretty well, but for specialized advice, ask your realtor for any shortcuts to your new home, or download the Beat the Traffic app on your smartphone for real-time and personalized traffic information.
You’ll also be interested to find out that according to a recent study, non-highways tend to have almost three times the congestion of highways. One of the highways that can back up during rush hour is the Dolphin Expressway, so be sure to give yourself plenty of time; in Miami, it takes approximately 24 percent longer to get to your destination than within other cities across the nation. For the best traffic info, ask your local movers— Miami traffic is something they know well!
Should I Get a Moving Helper or Two?
Additional moving help depends on how many boxes you are looking to transport, what the lay of the land looks like in your new residence and how quickly you want the move to occur. An additional mover can help cut the overall cost of your move by reducing the time it takes to get from Point A to Point B.

Relocating to Miami? A Guide to Your New City!
Miami's distinct neighborhoods, booming economy, electric nightlife and diverse cuisine make it an attractive city for folks of all ages. Whether you are considering a university here or wanting to retire somewhere with an extensive selection of golf courses, this is definitely the city for you. FlatRate handles thousands of local moves annually—and has been the name to turn to for more than 20 years.
Downtown Miami is known for its high-rise housing and a "live, work, play" atmosphere. High-rises come with unique moving challenges, so it’s vital to choose a moving company experienced enough to ensure a flawless transition to your new digs.
Fort Lauderdale attracts many snowbirds and offers attractive employment opportunities for those working in the hospitality and service industries. And Boca Raton is revered for its affluent social community and notable private schools.
Miami is flush with countless parks, beaches and natural areas.
South Beach is what most folks from across the country picture when they hear “Miami”— white sand beaches, thriving nightlife and people of all shapes and sizes strolling down Ocean Avenue 24 hours a day. And Biscayne Bay offers plenty of outstanding snorkeling and scuba diving opportunities.
Miami residents enjoy access to more than 80 gardens and parks in the city. Oleta River State Park has a noteworthy network of challenging trails, and Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park offers bike and boat rentals to explore by land and water.
Miami's Food and Drink
Caribbean and Latin American cuisines heavily influence the food in Miami. In fact, the two were combined with American standards to spawn Floribbean cuisine, which can be enjoyed at local chain Pollo Tropical. For downtown dwellers in search of some of the top-rated Caribbean food, Tuyo is known for its Shrimp & Octopus Ceviche, while brunch at Casabe 305 Bistro blends Caribbean and Venezuelan tastes perfectly. And remember, no one lives in Miami without chowing down on some authentic Cuban cuisine.
Be sure to ask your Miami movers for the latest restaurant openings and closings within the city. Locals often know the places tourists won’t.
There is no shortage of shopping opportunities in the Miami area.
Miracle Mile in Coral Gables has a lineup of high-end retailers, and more than 20 restaurants. Aventura Mall boasts more than 300 specialty stores, and Sawgrass Mills is a hotspot with bargain shoppers. Dolphin Mall is a new outdoor shopping plaza, offering several home furnishing and décor stores, including City Furniture, Marshall's Home Goods and Art de Miami.
Miami teams are often the franchises non-Miamians love to hate. But in South Florida, local teams reign supreme. Whether cheering for the Miami Dolphins (one of the Deep South's oldest football franchises); three-time NBA world champs, the Miami Heat; baseball’s colorful Miami Marlins or the cool-as-ice Florida Panthers of the NHL, rooting for the home team will always be a popular pastime. And if college sports are more your passion, University of Miami (Hurricanes), Florida State (Seminoles) and University of Florida (Gators) should provide you with entertainment year round.

Miami's Citi Bike Program
For Miami residents interested in commuting via bike, you’ll be pleased to know that there are countless parks with bike trails as well as a Citi Bike program—a bike sharing system comprised of hundreds of stations and thousands of bikes.
The city became committed to adding bike paths back in 2009, and an ordinance was also passed requiring bike paths to be included in future construction in the city. And while Miami is bicycle-friendly for your day-to-day needs, moving to Miami (or across Miami) requires more than two wheels and a set of handlebars. Let our fleet of state-of-the-art vehicles help you to relocate the items you value most, and you’ll be biking along the beach in no time!
