Did you know that professional movers help relocate more than 35 million Americans each year, according to the U.S. Census Bureau? Since nearly half of all moves take place from June through September, May is designated as National Moving Month—and the official start of the residential moving season!

As the busiest season for moving companies in NJ, you might discover that many companies have appointments scheduled well in advance and some companies may be completely booked for months at a time. It’s best to start searching for a professional mover as soon as you know your going to be moving to ensure that your preferred company is available.

You’ll find that most professional moving companies offer similar services.
Communication is Key
The absolute last thing you want to happen during a move is for your belongings to get lost or damaged. To stay up-to-date on every aspect of your move, select a moving company that provides a Relocation or Move Consultant to assist with every detail of your move. With a single point of contact, you’ll know when to expect the moving company to pick up your items, where your belongings are during transport, and when they’ll arrive at your new home. A Move Coordinator is also a great resource for answering any questions you have about the moving process.
Know the Signs of Unprofessional Movers and Scammers
Since most moving companies are busier during the summer than at other times of the year, unprofessional movers and scammers often choose the summer months to target unsuspecting customers. Warning signs to look for include not providing written estimates or requesting a large down payment or full payment in advance. Be aware that interstate moving companies are also required by law to provide federal publications that outline the moving process and explain your rights and responsibilities.
Check for Professional Affiliations
Most professional moving companies will be accredited with the Better Business Bureau and hold membership with the American Moving & Storage Association, as well as state and local business or industry affiliations. These types of affiliations and memberships demonstrate a moving company’s dedication to quality service and customer satisfaction.
