No matter if you’re moving for a job, family reasons, or just to try something new, moving can evoke a mix of emotions, ranging from excitement to anxiety. In fact, moving city to city can be a big change. So, take tips from our professional moving company that serves Bergen, NJ and the surrounding areas to make your move as easy as possible.
● Simplify your move. Before you pack up your truck and get ready to move, make your move as simple as possible by getting rid of everything that you don’t need. Things like old, unread books and pieces of clothing that no longer fit wastes real estate in your moving materials, so before you make the big switch, donate or throw away anything that you no longer need or want. Simply can’t let go of that wedding dress or grandma’s armoire? A storage service like ours near Bergen, PA can also keep your items with sentimental value safe until you’re ready to show them off again.
● Set a budget before you move. Changing cities can be difficult. If can be even more difficult if you’re moving to a place with a drastically different cost of living than what you are used to. Use online forums and knowledgeable family members to calculate your monthly costs in your new city, and make sure that your savings and expected income can cover these costs. You don’t want to get to your new city only to find out that you have to move back soon!
● Choose a reliable moving service. Every day, more and more scammers are popping up and ruining consumer trust in moving companies. These fly-by-night moving companies prey on unsuspecting movers looking for quick service, and don’t take the time to properly pack your items (which can result in damages) or vet their employees (which can result in items being further damaged or going “missing” during the move). Before you trust a moving company, review their online presence. Most legitimate movers (like us) will be happy to point you towards customer testimonials or Yelp reviews.
