Most people only move a few times throughout their lives. While it doesn't happen often, it's certainly a transition that takes a lot of planning and preparing to make successfully. Many homeowners will get help from a professional Central NJ mover like Simonik Transportation for transport of household goods. Our team will do everything we can to make your move go smoothly. Although, we can't take care of everything. To make your part in the relocation less stressful, we've put together a few pre-moving tips for your household.
What to Pack for the Central NJ Movers vs What to Keep on Hand
Most people assume that their Central NJ moving company will only handle traditional items, such as furniture and properly packed and taped boxes. However, this isn't true. Simonik Transportation can help you move in so many ways. We'll assist in packing your belongings, provide specialty crating services, and transport more unusual items, such as vehicles and hospital equipment.
You are welcome to take over as much of the move as you like, and just have us do the heavy lifting and toting. If you need assistance with packing, but want to make our job easier, consider bagging up any unwanted items and garbage ahead of time. You might also want to go through your documents and pack them for transport. Keep essential paperwork, such as your birth certificates, separate to bring to your new property yourself.
The Packing Hierarchy
You'll also want to pack belongings in the most efficient order possible without affecting your ability to use items needed on a daily basis. For instance, when you are moving in the summer you can probably pack winter clothing first. A good place to start is the closet and other storage areas. These spots contain items you don't use very often anyway, so it's easy to sort through and pack the closets without accidentally packing something you need.
When packing for the Central NJ movers, a good step-by-step list to keep in mind is as follows:
- Out of Season Items
- Unused Items
- Items With a Limited Use
- Daily Essentials
Don't Forget the Utilities & Mail!
Of course, you don't want to forget about transferring all of the utilities to your new home. Find out what utility companies operate in the area and contact them about scheduling service. Also, contact your existing utilities to cancel service.
You'll want to change your address on important accounts, such as with the car insurance and bank. Finally, submit a forwarding address to the post office about a week or two before your move. It can take them a little while to process the forwarded mailing form.
A Central NJ mover will make your relocation so much easier. At Simonik Transportation, we assign you a moving specialist who manages the entire process and even schedules storage services or door-to-door delivery.
