Bloomfield Movers

 

If you’re moving to that part of New Jersey that is just to the left of Manhattan as you look at a map, you could be forgiven for wondering where Bloomfield actually starts and finishes. Luckily moving companies know the area well and will be able to help you get to your new home. The question is how do you find the right mover for you?

 

One easy way to get multiple quotes to compare in a fair and open way is to use the service we provide here at iMoving.com. Most people are not involved with local or long-distance moving companies on a daily basis and trying to work out which one is the best for your move is not easy. At iMoving, we’ve come up with an idea to take the hassle away.

 

You provide an estimate of what you have to move, and we will find the best local or long-distance Bloomfield movers for you. You get a line of quotes for your move and you get to see everything you could ever want to know about them. iMoving believes in total transparency in both directions.

Things to Know for a Successful Move

 

There is a line of things which people who move a lot know. These are things that make it much easier and cut down on the work you need to do. If you want to move like a pro but haven’t ever done a big move before here are a few tips that will help you feel like you know what you’re doing.

 

  1. Local moving companies, cross-country movers and long-distance movers do a slightly different job. Like everything else, picking the right one for the job is essential. If you’re moving cross-country be prepared to see your entire life fit into a much smaller space than you thought it would, because movers put three or four households into one truck before they set off on the long drive. Believe it or not, local movers will often do more than one job in a day. Pick your moving company according to the move you are about to make. It will save you money.

 

  1. Trucks are packed and unpacked in order. Last in is first out. If you know you need something immediately on arrival at the new place, hold it back to be the last thing loaded into the truck.

 

  1. The movers will have the logistics sorted before they arrive at the new place – let them get on with it. They do this every day – they have this down.

 

  1. Think about plants in advance. You can move indoor plants, but you might not be able to take outdoor ones across state boundaries. Check in advance, you’d be devastated if you had dug up the wisteria only to find you can’t move it anyway.

 

  1. You can protect big plants by wrapping a bedsheet around them and securing it with a clothespin or string.

 

What to Know About Bloomfield, New Jersey

 

There are a lot of little towns on the Jersey side – the other side of the Hudson from New York that is. Bloomfield is one of the hidden gems. This is a town where you can live relatively comfortably but still commute into the city relatively easily.

 

It is not as expensive as some other towns which are a little further out like Basking Ridge. The average house price here is around $320K which is half of what you might pay 30 minutes further out along a New Jersey Transit rail line. Rents also are more than reasonable at an average of $1,300. Bloomfield is a place where you can start to get your foot on the ladder.

 

This is a diverse and mixed community. There are people of every age and group represented, meaning the feel is of an active bustling town, not a bedroom suburb.

 

One note to take a look for if this concerns your family – the schools are rated B+ by the residents, which gives the idea there’s room for improvement. If schools are really important you might want to take a look at private alternatives, but luckily there are plenty of options and you’re going to be able to make some choices.

 

Many New Jersey towns are somewhat defined by their being close enough to Manhattan to get there easily and the daily commute is manageable – you’ll have enough time to read the paper and have your morning coffee, but not much more. You also go into the city via Newark, which means you can change to Path rather than going into Penn Station if that’s easier.

 

In summary, Bloomfield is close enough in and yet far enough out. You made a good choice and the property values are only going up.

Don’t Forget To Do These 10 Things Before You Move | iMoving

Preparing for a move can get really overwhelming, and there are all sorts of things that we need to keep track of. Where are things going? Who is going to be involved in the move? And how can we be sure that it all goes the way that it should?

 

Before you start loading up those moving boxes, here’s a list of some of the things that many people end up forgetting as they get ready for moving day.

 

  1. Deal with utilities at both locations

 

Many people think about utilities at the last minute, which can make it difficult for you to move in or move out. Schedule your utilities to turn off the day after you move out; and turn the utilities on at your new home for the day before you move in.

 

  1. Start getting rid of items while packing

 

Don’t just pack everything that you have in your house. Now is the time to sort out what you want to keep, what you want to give away, and what you want to throw away. It’ll save you a lot of headache and you could end up saving cash on your move because you are moving fewer items.

 

  1. Compare mover costs

 

Don’t just settle on the first moving company that you come across. Your best bet is to take a little bit of extra time to go online and see what you’ve got available. When all is said and done, you’ll save some cash because you actually compared costs.

 

  1. Make an inventory list

 

Do you even know what you’re packing? Be sure that you put together as complete of an inventory list as you are able to while you’re packing up items. You can even write on the outside of the boxes (or the labels) so that you can keep track of where things ended up.

 

  1. Change your address at the post office

 

Put in a change of address form as soon as you know your new home address. You can put a date when it goes into effect (list it as 2-3 days before your move in date is scheduled). That way, the post office will start forwarding your mail, and they will do so for up to a year.

 

  1. Call your doctor and change your contact info

 

Your doctor (and your dentist, and other specialists) should be kept in the loop when it comes to where you’re headed. If you are staying semi-locally, you may just need to provide them with info, like your new address and any changes in phone number. If you’re going further away, you may need to put together info related to transferring your records.

 

  1. Have essential paperwork on hand

 

While you’re packing things up, put together a folder of every bit of paperwork you may need. Any identification that you may need to have on hand, any paperwork for the real estate you’re buying, and any health insurance cards should all be in that folder. Put that folder safely with other essentials that you’ve packed to go with you.

 

  1. Take donations where they need to go

 

Don’t get stuck taking a bunch of donation stuff with you when you start moving! A day or two before your move-out date, take some time to go over to wherever you plan to take your donated items. If you do a garage sale of some sort beforehand, just do it the day after – you can load up your vehicle with the unsold items and items you were donating, and then take it over.

 

  1. Start packing sooner than later

 

The minute you know that you’re going somewhere, you want to be certain that you start packing ASAP. You always have more stuff than you think you do, so it’s important for you to get the packing process started as soon as you are able to. Even if you’re just sorting stuff, you want to make some sort of progress related to moving day.

 

  1. Clean both houses (if possible)

 

You want to have both spaces as clean as possible. Not only will it make it easier for you to get things settled, but it will prevent you from having problems with landlords, new homeowners, and whoever else may be involved in the process. On top of that, you’ll feel like the home you’re moving into is actually yours.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

  • How can I reduce stress while moving?

 

Take your time. Too many people try to rush things, and it just makes it all so much more stressful than it should be. Also, put together a checklist (which should include what we’ve listed here) and be sure to let other people help you, if they offer to do so.

 

  • What should you do if your new home is too far away to clean ahead of time?

 

Then it’s going to be one of the first things that you do when you arrive. Have a bag of cleaning supplies with you in your vehicle, and take some time to wipe down counters, clean out the sinks, and clean the toilet. Then, after the movers leave, you can sweep the floors and take care of other tasks that may need to be done.

 

  • What do I need to do regarding my job?

 

It depends on what’s going on with it. Is your job going with you? Then you just need to take some time off, and make sure that your taxes show the changes that occurred with your address. If you’re moving to start a job, make some time between your move-in date and your starting date. If you’re leaving a job, give plenty of notice.

 

Ready With Your Checklist?

 

If you keep a list of these 10 things with you, or you add them to your overall moving checklist, you’ll be much better off. Overall, you’ll find that it’s that much easier to keep track of what you need to do and how long it could take to get it all accomplished.

  • The Threat of Property Theft in Relocations in Florida
    Moving Tips

    Looking for a state that offers the perfect blend of great work and business environment, recreation and culture? Florida is your best bet. The sunshine state as it's fondly called is not just a tourist destination it is a major hub of commercial and sporting activities with people trooping in and out of the city in their droves year-round. It is not just renowned for its beaches it has a warm climate and great educational system all of which make it a perfect abode for the bachelor and for the married. These reasons perhaps explain the high rate of relocation in Florida which is above the national average.

     

    The sheer beauty and ambiance of the state coupled with the vast potentials for business all adds up in making the state a darling of moving companies It is not a hidden fact that millions of people switch residencies every year in America. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), about 15 million American households relocate each year. However, there is a particularly worrying trend based on the analysis of this statistic and this is that Florida has the highest complaint rates recorded anywhere with the country. Of course, even the most well-planned move could yet possibly throw up one or two problems along the way but there is a particular complaint that reverberates in Florida much higher than any other states and this is theft of client's properties by personnel of some moving companies. Areas such as Palm Beach and South Florida which are some of the hottest destinations within the state have witnessed a sizeable number of reported cases of property theft.

     

    Theft is not a matter to be taken with levity. It is hard enough trusting a company with moving your valuables and then just like a bad dream coming to reality, you find out that some of your valuables are actually missing. Certain moving companies capitalize on the transient lifestyles and the wealth of residents of places like South Florida to perpetuate their dastard act. This, of course, does not imply that every moving company in Florida is dishonest; NO, this is merely to say that out of many apples falling from the tree, some are bad and these bad few ones are working diligently to tarnish the image of the good ones. 

     

    Not all theft is the fault of the moving company

     

    It is necessary to clarify also that theft of properties may not necessarily be the fault of the moving company at least not directly! There are instances where some moving companies are trying to handle multiple movements within a day and as a result of trying to be fast certain properties could be left behind or fall off in the process of loading on to the truck. Also, in instances where the properties have to be transferred to another truck while the moving process is still on, due to haste, certain valuables may be overlooked.

     

    Another major cause of theft often occurs when moving companies fail to get access to the destination the properties are going to. In instances where they unload the properties at the front of the house while waiting for the owner to come and open, passersby could nibble some of the properties away without the awareness of the movers.

     

    Solution

     

    You can never be too cautious when moving your properties. All hands must be on deck to ensure the process is as safe as possible but even with your best efforts, it's not improbable that one or two valuables especially the smaller sized ones could go missing. In the event of this happening, here are a few steps you can take to set in motion the process of recovery.

     

    Check the boxes properly: In the case of theft, the obvious step to take is to accuse the movers of fraud; but this might not be the best move to make especially if you are yet to scrutinize the boxes well. The importance of this stems from the fact that in the event of relocation, some items could have gotten misplaced within the box. Items like trinkets, necklaces, wristwatches depending on how they were packed could very much go missing.

     

    The next step to take upon the discovery of missing items is to file a claim. In any instance where there is an agreement by two parties where one undertakes to get a job done in return for a monetary reward, that is a contract and so far as you do not default on your own part then they are liable if any glitch or hitch happens in the performance of their own duties. File a written claim to notify them of your missing property and they would be liable to pay compensation for it. The claim is to be written within 30 days and submitted to the movers after which they are expected to accept or deny your claim within 120 days. In the event of non-cooperation by the company then you can petition the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to enforce your rights. As a matter of fact, whether the moving company cooperates or not, it is better to still contact the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) because they compile statistics of complaints by clients and this could help sensitize prospective clients on what to expect from these moving companies.

     

    You have a role to play

     

    Yes, you have a role to play in the safety of your properties in the process of movement. Ensure that every property of extraordinary worth is transported by you in person. This is your best precaution against theft. Furthermore, do not be in a hurry to sign or tick the inventory upon the delivery of your properties to the destination. Check to see if everything is intact because after signing off that all the goods have been delivered, you may not be able to lodge any claims about the theft of property again. Also, it is better to get insurance cover so that if at all there is a theft, you would be able to get all your valuables back. Finally, do not be lazy; don’t just hire just any mover. There are some with a track record of property theft in their history. Identify the good ones and the bad ones and deal with the good ones. It is better to be safe than sorry.

  • Before Your Move

    More than 35 million people are predicted to move in 2018.  A jaw-dropping number of those who are relocating will find themselves victims of moving scams, with thousands of dollars in losses.  Below you’ll find tips to help you avoid being taken for prey by fraudulent moving companies.

     

    Moving scams range from the moving company flat out taking off with the load, never to be seen again to holding the customer’s belongings hostage until a ransom is paid.  Others trump up fictional charges that supposedly occurred unexpectedly and refuse to let go of the goods until the customer pays additional fees.  

     

    The Moving Scam Epidemic

     

    It’s important to note why the moving scam problem is so out of hand that it is being called an epidemic by experts in the field.  First and foremost is the red-tape issue.  Crimes occurring within one particular state are within the state’s jurisdiction while a crime that goes across state lines is in the hands of the federal government.  The fact of the matter is that neither have the resources delegated to investigate and prosecute properly.  Therefore, the majority of the moving scam artists get by with their criminal deeds.  And...they are fully aware of that.

     

    How Can You Avoid Moving Scams?

     

    Here are some suggestions to heed when choosing a moving company:

    • Screen companies thoroughly.  Don’t trust what a single company says about themselves on their site.  Many unsuspecting victims have just taken a company at its word that they are on the up-and-up.  Using a third party site that offers unbiased screening is always wise.

     

    • Be sure the moving company is licensed and bonded.  It takes time to validate credentials but it is well worth the trouble.  Most victims of moving scams admit that they did not verify credentials.  If you don’t have the time to fully validate the licenses of a company, a third party moving company will do that for you.  They partner with moving companies and verify each moving company’s credentials since their reputation is at stake should they recommend a fraudulent one.

     

    • Check out the moving company’s reviews.  What other customers say about a company goes a long way.  It isn’t unheard of for moving companies to have fake reviews written for their site, so again, a third party moving service is your best bet.

     

    • Watch for signs of integrity or the lack of it.  Being courteous, friendly, reliable, respectful and professional are traits that the staff of a great moving company should possess.  Honest pricing is a good sign too.  Companies with nothing to hide will have no problem being transparent with their customers.  They will answer all questions to the best of their ability and understand your concerns rather than being aggravated by them.

     

    Make You Move a Great One

     

    Moving is exciting.  Adventures and new beginnings await.  It can be stressful too and for some, it can be a total nightmare.  Avoid getting caught off guard in a moving scam by taking the tips above to heart so your next move can be a great one.
