Thank you to all posters who have answered questions in the past.
Some advice from someone who recently moved. First read and research all Orlando posts before asking the same question for the 50th time and here's the big one BRING MONEY. Having a job first will help greatly but BRING MONEY. Here are some of the things you will find youself paying for.
Moving truck $750
Car trailer $150
Gas $400
1st mo. rent and security $1450
Utility deposit $250
Lisence plates $400 <---- look it up. I had to get 2
Drivers lisence $50
Renters insurance $100
Auto insurance $400 per quarter
Restock refridgerator $150
Replacing anything you left behind $$$
I cant give any advice on locations other than my own 32835 in the sw side of metrowest. Do your home work, bring money, come on down and enjoy.

My wife told me it's going to be $450 for my car which has never been registered in the state of Fl. Oddly enough, her car was first registered there, been registered out of state for four years, but they only wanted $28 for hers.

No, it's only the initial plate fee or what ever they are calling it. Annually, it's only around $50-60.

You're DREAMING or just coming from Southern GA if you think the moving truck and gas is going to be that low. Those trucks get about 6 mpg, regardless of what the rental places will try to tell you. Less if you're towing a car. Plan on over $1000 for the truck and over $500 for fuel.

I just spent $167.88 to renew two cars last week. So annually plan on closer to $85 per year, per car.
