Tips For First-Time Movers In Hamilton, New Jersey

Whether your first move is within the city limits of Hamilton, New Jersey, to the next town over or across the country, Rite Move helps take the stress out of your relocation. Our professional moving service helps you every step of the way, and we’ll answer all your questions about the moving process.


Prepare For Your Move

There’s more to moving than packing, hauling and unpacking. Preparing for any move requires numerous tasks, such as forwarding your mail, transferring your utilities and authorizing academic, medical and financial records to be sent to new providers. Prepare a checklist of your moving responsibilities to keep yourself on schedule.


Choose The Right Mover

If your first move includes hiring professional movers, remember: Not all moving companies are created equal. Make sure you’re hiring the right moving company for your type of move. Some movers are only licensed for local moves, which means they can’t cross state lines. We’re state-licensed and fully insured to provide residential and commercial moving services for local, intrastate and long-distance moves.


Packing For Your First Move

We’re a full-service moving company, so our highly trained movers can also pack and unpack your belongings. Alternately, we can take care of the heavy lifting and provide you with the materials you need to pack yourself. Start packing as early as possible to reduce stress, and:

  • Use double-wall, corrugated cardboard boxes for better protection.
  • Use small boxes for heavier items and large boxes for light items.
  • Pack heavier items on the bottom and lighter items on top.
  • Wrap fragile items individually with paper or bubble wrap.
  • Stuff empty spaces within boxes with paper to prevent shifting during transport.
  • Keep boxes under 50 pounds to avoid back injuries.
  • Donate or sell items you no longer need to lighten the weight of your load.
  • Pack a personal overnight bag with items you might need right away.
  • Never pack anything on our “do not pack” list.

Label all your boxes to make unpacking easier, and keep track of boxes as they leave your old home and arrive at your new one. Don’t forget to keep a comprehensive inventory of all your possessions to ensure everything arrived safely.
