This is the time of year when moving companies are the busiest. School is out. The real estate industry is at its peak. Many apartment leases also end and begin. This year; however, is different. With COVID-19, the busy moving season is extending further into the summer, closer to autumn. Extra precautions are necessary in planning and implementing a move, and are taking every measure to properly deliver your relocation needs while ensuring your health and safety.

Tips for Picking a New Jersey Moving Company

 At J.D. Carton and Son, we’ve put together a few suggestions to assist customers with finding the right company for their residential move.

  • Check out companies that are partnered with national carriers, like Allied Van Lines, to help with long-distance moves.
  • Look for New Jersey movers who are licensed and carry insurance on your shipment of belongings.
  • Read the mover’s customer reviews to see what kind of experience others have had.
  • Find out if the mover has any awards, certifications, or affiliations, like AMSA membership.
  • Get a few quotes ahead of picking a mover to get an accurate idea of market rates.
  • Explore storage options if you don’t think you’ll be moving into a new home immediately.
It’s also important to protect yourself from scam artists who might take your money and do a poor job or no work at all. Pay attention to any red flags, such as the moving company asking for a lot of money up front. While some companies do charge a deposit before the move, the industry standard is usually 30% or less. Make sure to get your contract with the mover in writing and get a copy for yourself so you can refer to it later on if needed.
