NJ Gold Coast Moving Tips

Making Your Relocation To NJ Gold Coast Easier!

Let's face it; moving day is no picnic. Experience has taught us that organization is the key to make your relocation to NJ Gold Coast as smooth as possible. By using these helpful tips, your move will be more organized and less stressful.

Before You Move

Host a garage sale to get rid of outgrown or unused items. If time prevents you from holding a yard sale, consider donating the items to a charitable organization like the Salvation Army or the Goodwill Foundation.

Get The Right Equipment

Use sturdy, reinforced boxes, and if packing fragile items, pack them with care. Consider using bubble wrap or other packing material for extra cushion and security. If you secure free boxes at your neighborhood supermarket or liquor store, just remember they are not reinforced.

Take it With You

Take your old phone book with you just in case you need to contact someone from your former home. Take all your personal documentation (medical records, school records, financial records) and medications with you for your security and for your convenience.

Change your address

Contact Credit Card Companies, the postal service, tax agencies, the social security administration as well as your utility companies to report your change of address. 

Handy Packing Tips

  • Reinforce: Make sure to use reinforced boxes! Boxes that you get from a local grocery or liquor store will not be reinforced.
  • Pack small: Make sure to pack heavier items in smaller boxes.
  • Prevent leaks: Be sure to empty any containers and pack any liquids in plastic.
  • Prepare: Create "OPEN ME FIRST" boxes with essentials that you will need right away upon arrival
  • Label, label, label! Mark fragile and high-value items so that your movers will know to be extra careful!

On Moving Day

Exchange your contact information with the mover's foreman in case you need to contact each other. Note your shipment's registration number, and keep your Bill of Loading handy during the move.

Keep important info

Take all your personal documentation (medical records, school records, financial records) and medications with you for your security and for your convenience.

Take an overnight bag

Be sure to pack everything that you might need for the next couple of days in a separate bag so that they are easily accessible.
