Benefits of Hiring Professional Movers in New Jersey

If this isn’t your first time moving, you know just how stressful and overwhelming the process can be – even if you’re just changing neighborhoods! Hiring movers makes moving day a breeze in many ways:
  • No manual labor or heavy lifting
  • Full service storage with belongings delivered to your new home at your convenience
  • Dedicated move coordinator to oversee the details
  • High quality packing services to protect even the most fragile items
  • Organized, efficient moving process with everything loaded and unloaded in no time
  • Home carefully protected from damage
  • Services easily customized to fit your unique needs and budget

New Jersey Moving Tips

  • Contact utility companies about one month before moving day to have electricity and water turned on the day before move-in
  • Don’t delay in downsizing and donating or selling items you don’t need or want to move – remember, you may need to schedule large furniture pickup in advance
  • Use a binder to keep track of important documents, to-do lists, contracts, and moving deadlines
  • Pack an overnight bag with important personal documents, medication, irreplaceable items or mementos, and school and vet records – this should stay with you, not go on the truck
  • Know your rights and what to look for in a mover to avoid unscrupulous companies and ensure a stress free move
  • Hire the best movers for the job by doing your homework to look for complaints, a valid license and insurance, and positive reviews
  • Hire a full service mover at least 8 weeks before moving day (or sooner if moving during the summer!)

Common Questions People Ask Our Movers

How Much Do Movers Cost in New Jersey?

When you hire movers, cost is probably one of the biggest things on your mind. Moving is always expensive, whether you do it yourself or hire professional movers. Hiring the experts can be a cost-effective option, though, to prevent injury, ensure your belongings are packed with care, and make sure your move goes smoothly.

Your moving costs will depend on many factors that may include:
  • Distance to your new location
  • Type of move
  • Move date and season
  • Accessibility of your home (stairs, driveway, etc)
  • Specialty moving services
  • Volume and type of belongings
  • Size of crew
  • Other services you need, like storage
With Harrington Moving & Storage, you can be sure you’ll get a competitive, fair price. We'll help you save money with customized services and an experienced moving team that prevents damage to your home and belongings.

Will the Movers Put My Furniture Back Together?

Yes, the team can disassemble and reassemble furniture in your new home and make sure it’s set up in the proper location. This is just one way we help deliver a hassle free, smooth move!

Will I Get a Detailed Estimate?

Before your move, Harrington Movers will provide a free, written estimate once we know what you need to move. This estimate will include the services we’ll provide. For local, hourly moves, it will detail the rate, number of movers, and an estimated number of hours for your move.

Can Movers Pack My Entire House?

Our packers and movers in New Jersey are happy to pack your whole house or just certain rooms or types of household goods. We can help pack everything from artwork and antiques to clothing and electronics. We’ll use special packing materials and a trained team to carefully pack all your belongings.

Is There Anything Movers Can’t Move for Me?

There’s a short list of items our team can’t move for you due to government regulations and safety concerns. Things we can’t move includes:
  • Perishable food
  • Live plants and animals
  • Firearms and ammunition
  • Flammable items including propane tanks, charcoal, nail polish, nail polish remover, liquor, and many household cleaning products

What’s the Difference Between a Local and Long Distance Move?

When hiring a mover, local and long distance moves may be priced differently. There may be other differences too, such as whether the same team handles the loading and unloading.

Our definition of a local move is very broad: any move within New Jersey is a local move. These moves may be priced hourly or flat-rate. Moves outside the state are long distance. Our long distance moving service generally has a flat rate price, typically based on weight and distance.

Can Movers Haul Junk Away?

Absolutely! Harrington Moving & Storage offers affordable and convenient junk removal as one of our additional services. We can haul away large furniture and other junk you don’t want to move with you.

Should I Tip My Movers?

You are not required to tip movers, but our crew always appreciates the recognition for a job done well. If you wish to give the team a tip, these general recommendations may help:
  • $5 per hour per mover, or
  • 15% to 20% of the total move cost shared by the entire crew, or
  • $10 to $25 per mover for smaller local jobs or $50+ per mover for large or long-distance moves
