Sarasota Moving Company – 941-359-0800

After moving to Sarasota, you and your family may be tired or annoyed with each other from the moving process. If you did not use full-service Sarasota movers to make your move stress-free, then check out these tips on how to bond with your family after moving to Sarasota.

Gum Art: This activity is creative and quirky at the same time. Everyone chews a piece of gum, and then uses a toothpick to sculpt the chewed gum into a masterpiece. There should be various awards for every superlative, such as “most gooey,” or “most unusual.”

 Human Knot: This game is a great way to bond with your family, everyone forms a circle and holds hands with someone who is not standing next to them. Then, all participants must bend, twist, and maneuver to untangle the knot. To add an extra challenge, you can blindfold family members. This game is ideal for a larger group.

Cereal Box City: After moving to Sarasota, grab a bunch of empty cereal boxes, as well as art supplies. You can use tape, glue, paint, and scissors to work together and create a large cereal box city. Use recycled items, toy cars, and dolls to make it appear more realistic.

Jelly Bean Hunt: Spread a bag of jelly beans throughout the backyard. You can make them as hidden as possible. Then, assign each member a specific color, and urge each participant to collect as many jelly beans as possible. You can divide into teams if the group is large enough. Whoever collects the most jelly beans, wins. This is a personal favorite game of ours at All My Sons.


If you are moving to Sarasota and are concerned about making friends, then you aren’t the first person to worry about?this. Moving to a new city is a scary feat, and it is particularly challenging if you lean towards the introverted side. At All My Sons, we wish to help you make your move to Sarasota the very best it can be. Here are our suggestions.

Meet people through work. Put yourself out there at your job. Of course, you should make sure that you are on task and are productive, especially when you first move. However, when you are on your lunch break, you should put your best foot forward and ask a coworker out to lunch. You never know who will be your next closest friend, so give everyone a fair and equal chance.

 

Have a positive attitude. It is all about the energy you put forth with others. If you give off an inviting, open-hearted vibe, then people will naturally gravitate towards you. At All My Sons Moving & Storage Sarasota, we believe you should keep an open mind and be accepting of whatever turn of events occurs. Instead of resisting, go with the flow and you will see how the “flow” can bring you to an even better situation than you once planned.

 

Go out into the city alone. Don’t let your lack of friends in your initial period of moving to Sarasota stop you from going out and exploring. Do things because you enjoy them, regardless of if you?have company or not. Make yourself feel comfortable on your own, and making friends will naturally occur with time. Think about it: you won’t meet new people by staying cooped up in your house or apartment.

Here in Sarasota, Florida our weather is a mixture of bright Florida sunshine with warm temperatures: the perfect combination. We have outstanding weather here most of the year and our average temperature year-round is approximately 72 degrees.

If you are planning on moving to Sarasota, the licensed movers in Sarasota want you to keep in mind that it starts to get hot in June all the way through mid to late September. Eight months of the year are significantly cooler than the “dog days of summer.”

So you may be asking “Depending on the weather, when is the best time to move to Sarasota?” This is a trick question considering the peak moving season falls during the summer months; however, these are also the hottest times of the year. Part of the reason why it is the best time for a summer move to Sarasota is due to kids being out of school. But, if you’re going to be moving somewhere with hotter climates, you will need to factor this into your moving activities.

To help you prepare for a summer move to Sarasota, here is a breakdown of the weather from mid-May to the end of summer.

Mid-May to Early June.

By early June, the Sarasota weather changes to one of a sub-tropical nature, and the humidity sets in coupled with high temperatures, which create a steamy environment.

Mid-April to August.

By the middle of April, water temperatures off the Sarasota barrier islands can reach 82-85 degrees, and by August the waters in the Gulf of Mexico are practically bubbling as temps reach 88-89 degrees. The upside to using your licensed movers in Sarasota at this time is the fact that the heat and humidity are tempered by warm sub-tropical breezes off of the Gulf, which create a summer paradise.

Summers.

The summers in Sarasota are also known for their rainy seasons. Afternoon thunderstorms are normal almost every day due to the combination of high humidity and high heat throughout the day. However, the storms are widely scattered and end quickly, so you can see them developing from miles away over the Gulf and to the east, towards the center of Florida.

If you are planning on a summer move to Sarasota, our licensed movers in Sarasota believe it is best to be informed about the climate. To make your move easier, call All Sons Moving & Storage today to find out about our full service moving services.


When you think of Sarasota, Florida, you probably envision white sandy beaches, the bay along the Gulf of Mexico, and possibly a creeping alligator or two. The licensed movers in Sarasota realize that when you think of the beach town, the first thing that comes to mind probably isn’t Sarasota’s hidden culture with the stunning displays of live performances, breathtaking art collections, or a strong history with roots in modernist architecture.

Though generally a destination spot for older mid-westerners and northeastern folk we like to call snowbirds, there is a strong tradition in this Western Florida community of supporting and fostering the arts. This is largely in thanks to one-half of the Ringling Brothers, John Ringling, who along with his wife decided to plant roots in Sarasota and influence the whole city’s development in the early 20th century.

However, the professional movers at All My Sons in Sarasota, want you to know this is more than just a circus town, and here’s our proof.

  1. Outside Art.

The streets and alleyways in Sarasota are all littered with breath taking aesthetically classical sculptures that perfectly reflect the dichotomy between classicism and modernist representations fostered throughout the city. If you are out for a stroll or catching a bite of one of the many fantastic restaurants, you can’t escape Sarasota’s art.

 

  1. Performing Arts.

Possibly one of the most exciting parts of Sarasota’s hidden culture is the Sarasota Opera. The Opera offers visitors some grand world-class performances that match the caliber of those seen in larger cities. This thread of classicism woven throughout Sarasota continues on in the theatre as well. Not one, but two European theatres were broken down and sent to Sarasota, piece-by-piece.

 

  1. The Ringling Museum.

This museum sits on the grounds of John Ringling’s spectacular Venetian Gothic style home called Ca d’Zan, which is translated to “House of John.” This museum and the sprawling estate are a cultural and representative microcosm on multiple levels. Ringling spent a fortune to build it and fill the museum with art; trust us, it will make you wish that All My Sons Sarasota was moving you into this home! In Sarasota, there are countless activities and attractions to do in order to get a real sense of Sarasota’s hidden culture. Check out some of the things you must do once you move to Sarasota.

 

  1. Culinary Arts.

Here at All My Sons in Sarasota, our expert movers believe that there is no better way to experience culture other than through a place’s cuisine. Even in the edible sense, there is a fascinating mix up of classicism and contemporary approaches melting perfectly together. There are a plethora of European and Hispanic influenced restaurants littering Sarasota alongside restaurant’s serving up fresh approaches to Floridian produce coupled with refreshing cocktails.
