Moving Company Coupons

The moving experts at Gibraltar Van Lines, a NJ local moving company, have compiled a checklist of things you should do when you plan on moving to a new residence.
  • Go through every room of your house and decide what to keep, what to sell, and what to donate.
  • Create a binder that holds all of your important documents throughout the moving process.
  • Arrange your children's to be transferred to the new school district.
  • Start using things that you don't want to move like frozen and perishable food and cleaning supplies.
  • Start measuring all furniture and entryways of your new home to make sure everything will fit.
  • Begin packing the the things you use least and end with the ones you use most.
  • Clearly label and number each box with its contents and the room it is designated for.
  • Go to your local post office and fill out a change of address form. Some times letters will still make it through, so ask one of your close neighbors to check on the mail at the home to see if anything slipped between the cracks.
  • Have a local mechanic tune up your car and ask them to consider what changes may need to be made if you are moving to different climate.
  • Refill any prescriptions you may need before the move.
  • Defrost your freezer a few days before the moving date.

The most important step is finding a reputable local moving company in NJ, such as Gibraltar Van Lines. Gibraltar Van Lines has been a national moving company for 40 years and is known for their exceptional moving services. We also offer moving company coupons.

NJ Movers

Moving is a task that can be exciting and tedious at the same time. The professionals at Gibraltar Van Lines, a NJ moving company, want to share these tips when you are packing up your home.
  • When possible, limit the weight of the boxes to 50lbs, to make handling easier and prevent them from tearing.
  • Wrap your items carefully by providing plenty of cushioning to absorb shock that might happen in the transportation process. Place a two to three inch layer of newspaper at the bottom and top of boxes to ensure proper cushioning.
  • Use sturdy boxes that close completely. You may want to stuff that winter comforter in that box. When a box doesn't fully close, it compromises the integrity of the box design.
  • Do not mix items from different rooms if possible. Keep all of your rooms together in a box, even if that means a few extra boxes, it will make unpacking that much easier on you.
  • Place smaller boxes in one larger box and add newspaper or any other packing material between them for added cushioning.

If you are looking for moving company in NJ, call Gibraltar Van Lines today and schedule your move. We are experienced NJ movers and will treat your items as if they were our own.

Movers Montclair NJ

Are you planning on moving soon? We have been hit by snowstorm after snowstorm, and it may be even more difficult to pack and load everything with the large amounts of ice and snow coating the ground. However, there is likely a deadline that you will have to move by, and that means that you may unfortunately need to move in the snow. Gibraltar Van Lines is a professional moving company that provides movers in Montclair NJ that can help to relieve some of the stress related to moving.

If you do have to move in the snow, here are some tips that can help make everything go a little easier:

  • Plan ahead. Pay attention to the weather forecasts and try not to schedule moving on the day of a snowstorm.
  • Shovel and salt. Make sure that you have clear paths that are wide enough to safely carry and load any furniture or large items that you may have.
  • Dry off possessions. You may get some of your things wet over the course of the move. Make sure that everything is dried off when you arrive. You do not want mold or mildew to start growing.

Beware of False Movers

Moving can be a very difficult and stressful ordeal to have to go through. In many cases, it is necessary to hire a professional moving company to help lighten the load a bit. However, it appears that many moving companies do not have the proper licenses and credentials to perform the work. Earlier this month, 26 moving companies in NJ were fined at least $2500 for operating without a license.

Moving licenses are necessary to protect the consumer and their possessions. Proper paperwork ensures that everything is insured in case of damages. The Division of Consumer Affairs has received 89 complaints throughout 2013. This prompted New Jersey’s acting Attorney General John Hoffman to put Operation Mother’s Attic into effect.

This sting operation took place from Nov 19 through 22 of 2013. Authorities contracted unlicensed moving companies to deliver shipments to an empty storage facility in Ledgewood. This is where they were greeted by investigators from Consumer Affairs. There 26 companies were fined and two were arrested by customs and immigration for outstanding warrants.

Unfortunately, many shady moving companies will prey upon vulnerable consumers. In order to spot a bad company, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration recommends this advice to see if you are being scammed:

  • Check with the Better Business Bureau. If the company has a bad reputation there will be formal complaints lodged against them.
  • Ask to see credentials. A legitimate company will easily be able to provide a license and any other required information.
  • Be wary of any company without an official name. If a company answers the phone by saying “movers” or “moving company,” that should raise red flags. Also make sure the company has a formal address.
  • If the movers arrive in unmarked vans as opposed to a fleet truck with a company logo, it is a bad sign.
