Early spring is usually the time that most New Jersey homeowners choose put their house on the market. If you price your house right and it sells, closing could be as soon as 30 to 60 days.
The weather is getting warmer here in central New Jersey and the rainfall that is also likely to show up as well, which can be a mover’s nightmare that could slow down progress during moving.
Always check your local New Jersey weather report before deciding on a date to move. For those who are unable to put off moving day, be prepared to put in that extra work to protect your furniture. It is best that you use some heavy-duty tarp to wrap or cover as well as plastic, especially when covering mattresses and sofas.
Instead of using cardboard boxes, use plastic containers with lids for some of your vulnerable things. These you can get at Loews, Home Depot or any of your local department stores. When cardboard gets wet, it weakens and when that happens one of two things happen.
- The box weakens and all your belongings can fall out
- All the layers of cardboard get wet and anything in your box becomes wet.
- If you are planning on storing these boxes in the basement, you could end up with a mold problem
Since it is nearly impossible to remove your shoes going back and forth, in and out of your home, line the floors with material that has more traction so that you or your movers do not slip and fall. Such as, old rug pieces, or you can even use anti-skid adhesive tape in high traffic areas, which again could be bought at Loews or Home Depot.
Wear rain ponchos, this helps to keep you dry and comfortable. These can be purchased at your local dollar store, and can be kept around for other rainy days.
Be smart and take the initiative to go out and collect the proper materials before your move. For more information where to get moving supplies, please contact me: email@example.com
