Gainesville, FL Movers


Moving to Gainesville

Located midway between Orlando and Jacksonville, you’ll find the dynamic and vivacious city of Gainesville, FL. In addition to being the home of the University of Florida and the county seat for Alachua County, Gainesville is best known for its thriving business sector and beautiful natural surroundings. If you want to be part of a true urban Jungle, moving to Gainesville might be perfect for you.

For nearly a decade, 2 College Brothers has been helping families like yours move to the Gainesville area. If you’re looking for the best Gainesville movers near you, trust 2 College Brothers for a worry-free experience. Don’t want to take our word for it? Check out the hundreds of positive reviews we’ve received from satisfied customers.

Gainesville is the largest city in Alachua County and had a recorded population of about 131,217 people in April 2018. The city is highly diverse; more than one-fifth of residents here are Black, and 10% of the population is Hispanic. Less than half the people living here are religious; the religious population is mainly split between protestant Christian churches.

Because Gainesville plays host to the University, the city has a distinct college-town vibe that makes it a perfect destination for millennials and young professionals who want to be around other 20- and 30-somethings. In fact, there are so many young people here that the median age is just 26.6! In addition to impacting the social culture of the city, this influx of young people is also one of the factors that make it highly progressive and fairly liberal.

Gainesville is also growing in popularity because of its low cost of living. The median home value in the area is $147,500, which is 14% lower than the median for the State. However, since only 35% of residents own their homes, it’s important to consider the average rent in the city as well. Luckily, renting here is also highly affordable; you can find a one-bedroom apartment for just around $1,000 per month here in the city.

Wondering what to do in Gainesville? A major part of the community’s appeal is the city’s commitment to integrating and celebrating nature within the city. Within the city limits, you’ll find numerous public parks, along with more than 30 miles of hiking and biking trails. You can kayak or canoe on Newman’s Lake, walk through a butterfly rainforest at the Florida Museum of Natural History and stroll through the gorgeous Kanapaha Botanical Gardens, all without leaving the city!
