“Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August.”
–Jenny Han, The Summer I Turned Pretty
Summer is almost here and May, which is National Moving Month, kicks off the summer moving season. Even though you may not think moving falls into the “good” or “magical” categories, the fact remains that more moves take place between June and August than during any other time of year—so it is part of summer. During this busy season, many moving companies in NJ are reserved well in advance. For that reason, it’s important to start making your moving plans ASAP, or you might have to settle for inferior NJ movers.
All NJ Movers are NOT Alike
Some people think all a New Jersey moving company needs is a couple of guys and a truck. This may be true if you don’t care at all about a positive experience—or any of your belongings. Remember, when you hire a moving company, you trust them with every single thing you own. Besides, moving is stressful enough in the best of circumstances.

Price Isn’t Everything
This is true of most things, and it is definitely true of moving companies. Some NJ movers give a price quote right over the phone! Simonik Transportation and Warehousing’s moving specialists know that it’s impossible to provide an accurate estimate without seeing the home. That’s why we provide no-cost, in-home estimates. You also have to look at the services provided for said price. Not all moving companies offer a comprehensive menu of services.
Get More than One Quote
Talk to two or three moving companies to learn about their services, their reputation, and to get a sense of their customer service. Knowing the questions to ask will help you gauge what kind of experience you can expect. A few questions to ask potential NJ movers:
- Do you wrap furniture?
- How do you price your services?
- Do you offer full packing services?
- Is storage available?
- Do you have experience with specialty packing?
- What is your BBB rating?
- Are your movers licensed and insured?
- What are your professional affiliations?
