Relocation may sound daunting, but don’t think you need special preparation when moving to Chicago. That is – you don’t need any kind of preparation if you call professionals straight away. As a family-owned and operated moving company that has been serving South Florida for years, we know how to help you with your relocation in no time. So no matter if you move to or from Chicago, we are here for you.

We offer several different moving services:

  • Interstate move – As professionals, we like to approach every relocation individually, making sure that the service we provide fits perfectly with each and every one of our customers. However, when moving across states, it is really important that you are familiar with the laws and regulations of different countries. That’s where our experienced cross-country movers in Florida step in. We can help you move your pet iguana, certain machines, and any kind of equipment without lacking any papers or documents. So don’t worry, we will make sure you do as little work as possible when relocating to or from the Chicago interstate.
  • Local move – It may seem that local relocation is a breeze compared to long-distance one, but that is not the case. And in order not to get confused with all the moving details, it’s best that you hire professionals. What is great about our local moving service is that it can be adjusted so that it fits your needs, wishes, and requirements ideally. As we already said, we regard every move as an individual case and like to address it as such.
  • Long distance move – Moving long-distance requires a special kind of preparation so only the finest moving companies can cover every aspect of such relocation. Of course, if you are looking for a moving company that will cover your long-distance move from start to finish, New Leaf Moving Group is at your disposal.
If you are looking for movers that will cover your interstate relocation completely, New Leaf Moving Group is at your service.

We are also here to help you with the following moving services when moving from Chicago to Florida:

  • Residential move – Household relocation is always emotional, but helping people like you find their way to their new homes and new lives is what we like to do every day. With so much experience, you can rely on us to know exactly what we’re doing. And don’t worry, your home and your belongings will be safe in our hands.
  • Commercial move – Relocating a business usually means everything has to be perfect from start to finish. At New Leaf Moving Group, we know how much people can struggle when consumed by office moving-related worries. In order that your business keeps running even while you relocate, we composed a team of moving professionals. They are trained and 100% dedicated to executing your office move to perfection.

Besides these types of relocation, these are some of the most popular additional services when it comes to moving:

  • Packing services – When you move, you want to save as much time – and nerves – as possible. That’s why packing services are the perfect solution to save your space in boxes… And your effort while you move out, giving you the time to focus on yourself and your family or business. Remember that our workers have enough experience to pack and transport with ease even the most delicate items. So, if you need help only with bulky items, you can still count on us as well. With our customizable and flexible services at your disposal, you will have a simple and successful move.
  • Storage services – New Leaf Moving Group has the ultimate solution to the lack of storage space. We offer you reliable and secure storage units that will keep your items safe and secure at any time. In this way, you can sleep with confidence that all your items are protected until you need them again.
  • Piano moving – Relocating an instrument is not an everyday task. Plus, there is always a sentimental value that comes with moving a piano. However, there is a good reason why our piano movers are as respected as they are today. Besides taking care of your belongings and moving your piano without a scratch, we have paid special consideration to creating a reliable moving team that is dependable, trained, and qualified people.

Why are people moving to Chicago from Florida?

In recent years there have been more and more cases of people moving to Chicago from Florida. Of course, many are moving due to personal reasons, but there are still some reasons that from time to time end up being similar.


There are some things that are simply out of our control. And that applies to circumstances such as weather. Although Florida, in general, is known for its nice sunny weather many people forget that those things too have their bad sides.

  • Animals – When we say animals many people become confused. But they forget that Florida is a state with warm and humid weather. That means that animals such as snakes, crocodiles, spiders, and so on are quite frequent. And that is not to everyone’s liking. So a state that’s colder is a better fit for those people. Imagine waking up only to find a crocodile in your pool. For people fearful of these animals Florida is not the best place to live in.
  • Natural disasters – Many have moved out of Florida due to the state’s liability for natural disasters. On the other side, Chicago is a much safer environment. When it comes to FL there are many cases of disasters such as tropical storms, hurricanes, tornados, floods, and wildfires.

Life choices that matter

On the other hand, some people move to better their life in other ways. By moving they open themselves and their families up for new experiences and chances.

  • Job opportunities – There are many jobs available in Florida as well. But Chicago’s overall job market is a lot larger and offers more opportunities. So many people move here in search to broaden their careers and experience. This is also a good city for people that look to start their own businesses.
  • Education – First of all if you look at Chicago’s education you will notice that the city invests a lot of money in it. There are many types of schools you can choose from. Private, religious, and public schools all enjoy the good treatment. But that’s not all! Chicago is a prominent city for universities. The Windy City is home to many top-ranking universities. For example the University of Chicago, Northwestern University, and the University of Illinois at Chicago.
  • Safety – Florida is known as a relaxed state with a lot of parties and tourists. But that is precisely the reason why people move out. Due to so many tourists and parties, there are many crimes happening on daily basis. So many people decide to move away.
We offer you safe storage units that will keep your items secure at  all times

Are you interested in more moving options?

If you have already decided to move away from Florida for good, but you still don’t have your heart set on one place then let us help you! We can help you relocate not only to the City of Chicago, but also to many other places. And we guarantee that all of them will have something you will like.

New York City

One of the options we present to you is moving from Florida to New York. NYC will bring you into a new environment. Here there are many more job options, as life in NYC is more business oriented. Although it can be a little surprising at first, living here is quite beneficial. But make sure to pick the right area that will fit into your budget and pay. Some areas of NY can be quite pricy. But even that is not something you can’t get past. Especially because we will be there to help, every step of the way.


If you wish to move but are still interested in places with a similar lifestyle then you can try moving from Florida to California. Both states have beautiful beaches and a relaxed lifestyle. Actually, some would even argue that the most beautiful coasts are in California. This is the state of opportunities. Influenced by the glitz and glamour of Hollywood it became one of the places where tourists from all over the world come to explore. But it has so much more to offer!


It may not be one of the first locations one would think of, but moving to Texas from Florida also has its benefits. Here you will find a broad range of cities that can accommodate everyone, good education, no state income tax, gentle winters and so much more. Of course, you will also find phenomenal work options in one of its many major cities, as well as a good school and university options for your kids. The climate here might be one of the closest ones to Florida as well.

Noteworthy cities you should consider

SeattleMoving from Florida to Seattle is also a good option if you are looking for changes. This is one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation. With the overwhelming potential for even more improvement. Seattle offers you great artsy communities as well as a tax-free income. If that is not enough then you can also look forward to great food. As many people from different cultures and beliefs mix in one city and bring their family recipes to the streets of Seattle.

Boston – One more option we are eager to recommend is moving from Florida to Boston. Although you can expect a different climate(harsh winters) and somewhat pricy costs of living, the city has so much to offer. For instance, this is the best city for athletes, as it has an amazing sports scene. The spring, summer, and fall look like scenes from movies dyed in different colors. Job opportunities are at every corner, and the food is phenomenal. It is definitely a place to consider when moving.
