Moves can be complicated. You not only want to ensure that you get your stuff to your new place safely, but you also want to make sure that the members of your family have a positive experience as well. Here are three factors that can complicate your move to Florida and how to address them.

Factors That Can Complicate Your Move to Florida: Children

When it comes to moving, it can be especially difficult for children. With so much change involved as your family moves to a new place, they can become anxious and not know how to channel their energy.

In addition to the normal challenges that come with moving, moving across states to a place with a unique climate and culture like Florida can be especially difficult. If the Florida scene will be pretty new for your children, think about ways you can help the transition be smoother for them.

See if there is a way for you, your spouse, or another responsible adult to take young children to the beach while the rest of your team moves the furniture into the house.



In addition to dealing with anxious children, you may find yourself dealing with anxious pets when moving to Florida. When pets have to be pent up in carriers for long periods of time, they can start to whine and get stressed.

In order to help your pets feel more at ease during the process, you may want to consider giving your pets CBD oil or tablets. CBD has been shown in studies to be safe for pets, including dogs. It can help reduce pets’ anxiety and blood pressure.


Factors That Can Complicate Your Move to Florida: Transportation

One of the most important things you’ll want to consider when doing a big move is how to transport all your stuff to your new home. If your move will be cross country, figuring out the best transportation method could be even more complicated.

While it is possible to time the moving of your stuff and your family’s travel just right so that you all get there at the same time, this can be difficult with small kids. You may consider using a moving pod or self-storage unit that takes your stuff to your new location and leaves it in a metal storage unit on your driveway.


Moving is always difficult, but it can be easier if you prepare beforehand. Starting with these tips will help your move to Florida go much more smoothly.
