Fort Lauderdale & Tri-County Long Distance Movers

Known as the “Venice of America,” Fort Lauderdale is a city full of exotic culture, exquisite food, and long days of fun. There are plenty of reasons why one would want to move to Fort Lauderdale. Whether for economic opportunities in a variety of industries, the pleasant climate, or simply wanting to be near the ocean, Fort Lauderdale has something for everyone.

Here are a few things you should know before moving:

  • Sunny and Stormy: Fort Lauderdale and the Tri-County region are well-known for long, sunny days, but it’s not uncommon in the summertime to experience evening thunderstorms or periods of intense rainfall. Best to dress accordingly.
  • Tourist Hotspot: This city attracts tourists from around the world, especially since it is a hotspot for cruise lines and other nautical recreation. Along with pristine beaches and a robust culture, Fort Lauderdale does have plenty to offer, so prepare to meet quite a few tourists.

Cost of Living: While it’s a great place to live, Fort Lauderdale can be quite expensive for residents. This said, it is known as one of the best cities in Florida and is one of the most popular retirement destinations in the country, so it may be well worth the cost.

Anyone considering cross-country moving to this destination would do well to book their long-distance movers at least three months in advance. In the summertime, you may want to book them even earlier.
