Moving Company Livingston NJ

 moving company Livingston NJ
We recently mentioned that a recent study showed that more people are leaving New Jersey than any other state. This can be widely attributed to high taxes and overall high costs of living. This could  even escalate as New Jersey may raise utility prices in order to fund projects that will strengthen power grids so that we do not have massive power losses in the event of other super storms like Sandy.

If you are planning on moving out of  New Jersey, it is important to find a good moving company in Livingston NJ. Gibraltar Van Lines has gained nearly half a century of experience in both local and long distance moves. Our highly skilled and experienced movers know how to expertly crate and pack any possessions and will treat them with care and attention as if they were their own.

Many of these people that are leaving New Jersey are moving to places with lower costs and taxes, such as Florida and Texas. We will move anywhere in the Continental United States and even have special direct lines to Florida.

Help Picking The Right Moving Company

As you move, you are entrusting the well-being of your possessions and the comfort of a fresh start in the hands of complete strangers. Unfortunately, moving is not the sort of undertaking that most people can accomplish on their own – a moving company is almost always required. Just because you need some movers in Morris County to help you get from A to B doesn’t mean you should settle for the first company to come along. Here are some tips from Gibraltar Van Lines about how to pick a good moving service for local and long distance moving.

Look at reviews. The past customers are people like you who will take note of the services provided and be able to offer insight into what the experience was like. Keep in mind that every company has bad reviews and this is just the reality of business, but look at what these reviews say. Was the issue payment, quality of service or something else?

Try to narrow your field down to three companies. Make sure that these companies are the movers themselves and do not hire a broker – a practice that could speak to poor accountability on behalf of the company.

Get an in-home estimate of what the service will cost. It can also be very useful to schedule a visit to the office of the company to make sure that they are who they say they are. It has been known that some companies will put magnetic signs on rental trucks and steal items during the move, so this research can save you in the long run.

Ask questions about pricing, insurance and know what you are paying for. Do not leave room for surprises on moving day when you are being charged more than agreed because you were not specific.

These tips can help you get exactly what you need when you decide to move. If you want to know more, contact Gibraltar Van Lines and speak with a moving expert about how we can assist you.

Long-Distance Moving

U.S. Census data has revealed that the great slowdown in residential movement has given way. Nearly 7 million Americans have decided to move long-distance, interstate, to states with lower income per capita. Why? The lower income per capita is a result of lower taxes, lower housing costs and lower costs of living. In metropolitan areas, such as the Tri-state area, housing costs have increased exponentially more than the economy has. 
One of the main reasons many millennials are moving away from the greater metropolitan area is due to the mindset that it instills. The area creates a sense of spending without saving, and instant gratification is more important than a long term investment. Many twenty-somethings have started to realize that paying inflated rents, expensive dinners, designer clothing and $12 martinis, is no way to secure a steady financial foundation.  
Despite the job opportunities in these metropolitan areas, the competition is greatly increased. With all of the Ivy League institutions being concentrated on the east coast, the level of competition is increased. The concentration of residents in these areas is also a reason for the increased job competition. It is no surprise that there is a greater migration of residents away from the greater New York area. 
Moving these long distances isn't always an easy undertaking though. Especially if someone who is moving out of the area already has a residence. There are companies, such as Gibraltar Van Lines, that are specialized long-distance movers in NJ

Piano Moving Tips

A piano is a beautiful piece of furniture that brings somber and luxurious tones to any room. Moving these instruments can be extremely difficult, and it is always recommended that you consult professional piano movers in NJ when you are trying to relocate this cumbersome item. Gibraltar Van Lines has over 40 years of experience moving pianos, and we have a few simple tips to get you ready for when the experts come to help.
  • Clear the access ways to the house and make sure that the space is wide enough and free of obstruction if you can. The quickest distance between two points is a straight line, so try to remove any unnecessary legwork for the movers.
  • Go to a rental store and speak with a clerk about any tools or equipment that might help cope with the immense size and weight of these pianos. Any help you can get will be worth it.
  • Learn your route. Prepare for any staircases and other obstacles you might need to get around. How many flights of stairs are there? Are there many twists or turns?
  • Secure the piano with foam and similar padding. Not only are you protecting the outside of the piano by helping with the stuffing, but you can also insulate the mechanisms inside.

The best thing to do when moving a piano is to consult an expert. Gibraltar Van Lines is a moving company with many years of experience moving pianos in NJ and we have this process down to a science. To learn more, call today at 1-800-262-3499.
