Moving to Pompano Beach?

Here Are the Savvy Mover’s Insider Moving Tips

We love Pompano Beach! The city’s motto is “Florida’s Warmest Welcome” and you’ll soon experience why firsthand since you’ll be moving here soon!

We love it so much in fact that we moved our families here ourselves and made it the headquarters of our moving company…and we’re not alone…

The population of Pompano Beach is about 115,000 and has grown about 10% since 2010 and the upcoming 2020 census is sure to show more expansion. But there’s a lot more room, so come on down, the water’s warm and the people are too!

Here are some helpful tips that our family of veteran movers wanted to share with you to make your move to Pompano go as smoothly as possible!

Moving TIP # 1 – Certificate of Insurance

If moving into a condo in Pompano Beach, be sure to find out if your building needs a Certificate of Insurance (COI) prior to your move in date.

Since you’ve wisely decided to relocate here, you already know the tropical climate, gorgeous beachfront featuring the world-famous Pompano Pier and water sport options are reflective of the South Florida lifestyle. But did you know this dynamic city offers so much more?

Pompano Beach has its own airport ( home of the Goodyear Blimp ) a gigantic antique mall and is also home to The Isles Casino at 777 Isle of Capri which not only features a plethora of slot machines and black jack games, it even has live horse racing!

But don’t race around at the last minute getting ready for your move.

Moving Tip #2 – Start Planning Early

You should start planning your move at least 6-8 weeks in advance including the selection of your moving company. This will give the estimator’s a chance to properly estimate what’s involved and give you a proper estimate.

TIP #3 – Avoid Surprises

No surprises from you means no surprises from us.

  1. The building that you are moving to does not have an elevator (walk up)
  2. You are bringing more items that disclosed
  3. There are extra stops
  4. You are not ready

Everything should be packed and ready to go on move day unless you made special arrangements with our team to pack for you.
