    How to choose movers in Tampa

    Tampa Skyline

    When you include St. Petersburg and Clearwater, Tampa Bay is the 18th largest metro area in the country, and its population is growing. According to the U.S. Census Bureau there are 385,430 residents in the city of Tampa, placing it squarely between Miami and Orlando as the second largest place that Floridians call home.

    Whether you're moving to Tampa or within Tampa, you're part of a growing and diverse community. Tampa has temperate weather year-round, so you don't need to avoid dangerous winters when you're planning your move. Hillsborough county schools are in session from early August until the end of May, making it easy for families to relocate in June or July.

    The cost of moving in Tampa

    Moving can cost more than you expect. Get quotes from moving companies so you have an idea of what you'll spend, but remember that specific requirements for your move could cost more. For example, if you're moving to a high rise community in Channelside or downtown, there could be stair fees, even if you have an elevator in your building. If you have antiques or heavy items like a piano, you'll probably pay more. Companies like Colonial Van Lines are licensed and insured to move specialty items such as these.

    Additional expenses that may not be covered in your initial quote include:

    • Insurance fees: Most moving companies provide basic coverage for free, but you might want more protection for your flat screen TV or aquarium.

    • Assembly fees: Find out if you'll pay extra for your movers to disassemble and reassemble your furniture.

    • Extra stop fees: For example, leaving your home in South Tampa and stopping in Brandon to pick up things before moving into your new home in Lutz may cost extra.

    • Tips: You'll want to tip your movers for a job well done, so remember to have cash available after they've unpacked the truck.

    When your move is complicated, consider a moving broker rather than a moving company. Purple Heart Moving Group is a broker and helps with logistics. Open Road Moving is another moving brokerage company that takes the hassle out of complex moves.
