If you’re moving anywhere in the state of Florida, it’s important to have professional and reliable movers that will be with you from start to finish. And if you’re moving to Delray Beach, choosing a moving company that knows the beloved coastal area inside and out is merely a practical choice. Moving Squad just happens to check both of those boxes (and then some).
At Moving Squad, we’ve maintained our reputation in Delray as the area’s leading full-service moving company for over 50 years. As Delray’s premier movers, we’re proud to provide our customers with the absolute best services and affordable prices.
If you’re planning your move to Delray Beach, rest assured that the small coastal city will live up to your expectations – and quite frankly, it’s likely to surpass them. The unpretentious beach town is situated on Florida’s Atlantic Coast between Boca Raton and West Palm Beach, an hour North of Miami. Though still lesser known than its famed neighbors, Delray has continued to grow in popularity, and for good reason.
We love our customers, and we love Delray Beach. Read on to find out a few of the reasons why we love the artsy town of Delray so much, and why we’re confident that you’ll love it too.
Its overall fabulousness hasn’t gone unnoticed.
It all started in 2012 when Delray was deservedly coined the Most Fun Small Town in America in Rand Mcnally’s USA Today Best of the Road competition. n 2015 it was rated as the 3rd Happiest Seaside Town in America by Coastal Living. Since then, it’s been featured on Thrillist as one of the “Best Small Cities to Move to in America Before They Get Too Popular”. Thrillist describes the town as follows: “It’s not just for grandparents anymore. In the past decade, Delray has begun to use the word ‘hip’ to precede something other than ‘replacement.’” Additionally, it’s a 3-time winner of the All-American City award.
Delray has effectively shaken off its 80s nickname of “Dullray Beach” for the more apt “Village by the Sea.” The small city knows that it’s grown into itself, but it hasn’t let that get to its head. Delray’s like the awkward teenager who returned to high school one Summer with clear skin and bulging muscles and rejected the numerous swooning popular girls for his still-awkward science partner who blossomed soon thereafter, because that’s what happens in rom-coms.
In all seriousness, despite Delray’s seemingly endless stream of accolades, it’s maintained the relaxed and local vibe that everyone falls for.
Small-town atmosphere with big city convenience.
Glitz, glamour and white-sand beaches aren’t exclusive to South Beach. Delray has world-class restaurants, shopping, museums and theater, and it’s all within walking distance of the two-mile stretch of beach.
Delray’s downtown strip, Atlantic Avenue, was named among 10 Great American Shopping Districts by USA Today. This charming downtown is filled by mainly local businesses and is known for its street festivals and nightly entertainment. Moreover, it’s just a short drive away from the nearest airport in West Palm Beach and conveniently close to all of South Florida’s major cities.
There’s always something to do.
This pedestrian friendly locale has a vibrant arts and culture scene and holds an array of events year-round. Just off Atlantic Avenue, the colorful Pineapple Grove merges galleries, murals and public art alongside bistros and wine bars. At Old School Square, you can catch anything from art auctions to cabaret performances by Broadway stars to leading-edge contemporary art exhibits at Cornell Art Museum at Old School Square. There’s even a pinball museum with loads of playable machines.
It’s (surprisingly) affordable.
Although Delray is a seriously desirable beachside town with literally everything a person could possibly want, its prices don’t reflect it. The overall cost of living in Delray is about 2.6% less than most places in the country. If you’re buying in Delray, your options range from small, cozy condos starting at about $80,000 and go all the way to multi-million-dollar mansions. If you’re renting, you can expect to pay between $1,000-$2,000 for a 2-bedroom space.
