About Us

Sunshine Movers family

Hi, I’m Blake Fitzpatrick,

owner and founder of Sunshine Movers of Sarasota. My company is one of the highest-rated moving companies in Sarasota County, and for good reason. Sunshine Movers is more than a moving company; we’re your next-door neighbor and your friend. We go above and beyond to take care of you and your belongings.

Moving to a new home is one of the most important transitions you’ll go through in your life, and we’re here for you through each part of the process. With 88 Google reviews averaging at 5 stars, our customers prove they are happy with us.

Initially a drywall and home remodeler, I hadn’t set out to start a moving company. But when my friend asked me to help with a move he was doing (his regular guy didn’t show), I gave it a try. I’ve never been afraid of hard work, and even though moving was challenging, I enjoyed it. The next thing I knew, the owner of that company was asking me to come back again and again.

What kept me coming back?

I loved meeting new customers every day and solving problems. It was fun to see the project completed and leave the customer smiling and satisfied. That was the start of my moving career, and I never looked back.

Five years later, Sunshine Movers has expanded to service Sarasota and surrounding cities. Even though we’ve grown, and will continue to grow, I will never lose sight of what I learned in the early days of my business.

Today, I still follow those same principles I did at the beginning of my moving career.

With each move, my goal is to:

  • Find out what each customer wants
  • Understand the customer and their needs
  • Make each move as smooth and hassle-free as possible
  • Take care of the customer


As a business owner, my employees are the face of the company. I train them with the same values and work ethic I hold myself to. I pay my employees well and offer bonuses and incentives. As a result, my team takes good care of our customers.

I’ve lived in the Bradenton and Sarasota area all my life. One of my favorite things about doing business in this area is meeting the people from all over the world who move out here. It’s rare that I run into people who were born and raised in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. But when I do, it’s amazing to hear their stories and talk about how much things have changed. I love how much things have grown. It seems like every couple of months, there is something new to do.

But my favorite thing of all?

The beautiful beaches, wildlife, and fishing right in our backyard!

Outside of work, I spend most of my time with my kids and family. My wife Ashley and I have 3 children aged 8, 5, and 4 years old. We enjoy taking them on regular fishing trips in the area.

I like to be a kid right along with my kids. I am the dad that ties the wagon to the back of a mountain bike, taking my kids on a thrill ride through the neighborhood streets—and scaring the heck out of mom!

When I’m at home, I’m having fun and relaxing. When I’m at work, I’m all in.

Why do I do what I do?

It’s a great accomplishment and I get a sense of pride when I know each customer who deals with my company is thrilled with the level of service they receive.

This is what it’s all about. I can go home and sleep each night knowing that I made another customer happy. That’s something special.
