Moving and Storage in Morristown, New Jersey: 5 Question to Ask Yourself

Looking for a charming small town to call home? Morristown may be the perfect choice, a place so idyllic that even the New York Times wrote about it back in 2016.

If you’re one of the many people who will soon be a Morristown resident, American Mover has prepared a quick guide to help you move. Here are 5 questions to ask yourself:

1. How Much Stuff Do I Have?

One of the first things to do is to quickly go through your stuff and see what you want to take with you to Morristown. Not for nothing, but this list can help you determine if you can manage to fit everything in the trunk of your car, or need someone from the outside to help.

Of course, you don’t have to carry everything with you. Some of your items can be donated or even sold to make a little extra money before you move. But it’s best to create this list well before you start packing.

2. How Much Time Do I Have?

You should start planning your move at least one month before, regardless if you do it yourself or hire a moving company in New Jersey.

A DIY move means you’ll have to gather all the packing materials and maybe rent a van to move your belongings, which can take time. And when it comes to hiring a company, though you’re not worrying about the move thanks to them, you still want to have plenty of time to research the market and choose a company you can trust.

3. Do I Need Storage? For How Long?

There may be some items you don’t want to get rid of, but you also can’t bring into your new home. Or, not just yet. One solution to this predicament is opting to rent a storage space, and keep those items safe and secure there.

You also need to know for how long you want your items stored, at least in terms of long-term vs. short term. Not all storage companies offer both!

Pro tip: there are moving companies in New Jersey like American Movers that come with their own storage facilities, so you don’t have to spend any extra time looking for third party storage.

4. How Much Money Can I Spend on My Move?

And then there’s the budget. If you’ve just spent money on a new Morristown house, you likely don’t want to spend a fortune on moving and storage, right?

Make a quick budget of how much you can comfortably spend on these services, and use that budget to help you determine the specific services you opt for.
