Moving Resources & Tips For New Jersey Residents

Rite Move knows that moving can be stressful. Taken as a whole, it can certainly seem daunting. Trust Rite Move for expert moving resources and tips to help manage relocation smoothly and efficiently. Try these tips next time you relocate.

Planning Checklist

Use a handy moving checklist to keep dates and tasks organized. Purchase boxes and packing material at least a month before your expected move date to ensure sufficient time to get all items packed up. Within a week of the move, put in a change of address with the post office. Arrange to have the electric and water service start at your new place the day before moving in and shut off at the previous home the day after the move.

Packing Supplies

Having the right packing supplies makes a world of difference. Dish pack boxes, for example, are reinforced specifically for kitchenware and wardrobe boxes are designed to hang delicate clothes without damaging them. Additionally, investing in a tape dispenser will greatly improve packing speed with ease. The right equipment will make the job much less stressful.

Packing Tips

The most important thing to remember is to keep heavier items like books in small boxes and lighter items in larger boxes. Pack fragile items by themselves with protective material like bubble wrap or newspaper. Label all boxes to quickly know where to place and unpack items. In addition to packing, take inventory of your items in case anything is lost or damaged during transport.

Moving With Pets

Prepare a bag with enough food and supplies for your pet during the move and unpacking. Transport your pets in the most comfortable way possible to reduce their anxiety. Check on them regularly while also sticking to your normal feeding and care routine. Also, update their tags or microchip information with the new address and phone number.

Moving Cost-Savers And Tips

Reduce the number of items that need to be transported by eliminating possessions that are no longer used. Set aside a pile of things to donate or sell at a garage sale. Another way to save money is to disassemble large furniture to be easily packed. Also, just move smaller items by yourself like toys, shoes, and knick knacks.
