Moving within NJ
If you are relocating intrastate (NJ to NJ), licensed movers are required to perform in home estimates – this is the best way to protect you from surprises on your move day. A professional estimator can assess what you are looking to move, identify any issues with access and will provide you with a written estimate.
Many movers will quote their minimum price for a small move or may quote “ball park prices” by phone, but that is not even close to the accuracy of an in-person estimate. These quotes often-times are not realistic and should not be used for comparing companies. It is impossible for a mover to know the type of furniture that you have, the handling that will be required to maneuver the furniture out of your home and what amount of packing or crating may be required – all these things will affect cost. We advise consumers to beware of moving companies quoting prices over the internet or over the phone, simply because the lowest price quoted may not be the price you will end up paying!
You can trust the movers listed on this site. They have been vetted to insure they are properly licensed and meet the highest industry standards.
Tip: Movers are legally allowed to ask for payment before they unload your furniture. If they did not do an initial site visit, or if you agreed to waive the in-home estimate or if after the estimate you added more items or require additional packing – then even a binding price can be changed. If the scope of your move has changed a lot from the original quote a professional mover would be more than happy to revisit your home again and provide you with a revised estimate!
