The Garden State is well known for its tree-lined streets and suburban swank. Over nine million residents call New Jersey home. The state is neatly dispersed across a variety of neighborhoods from the mansions of Essex County to the more urban flare of Newark. New Jersians have a lot to smile about, as they enjoy the close proximity to New York City and other major work hubs.

Every state has its pros and cons, and if you’re planning to move to New York City, it has its pros and cons too. Packing up your home and moving to NYC must be meticulously planned. Jumping from a house to an apartment can be quite a shock to the system if you’re used to a great deal of space, such as a nice backyard and a two-car garage. On the other hand, if you’re accustomed to living in more cozy quarters, then you’ll fit right in.

If you frequent the NJ Transit System, the transition to NYC Transit won’t be a far stretch. If you’re moving to NYC to be closer to your job, you may not have to commute at all. You may be able to walk to work or take a short ride on one of the many the city buses. There are trains and buses on almost every corner in NYC so getting from point A to point B will never be a challenge. The most challenging aspect of your move will be transporting your life, family (if any), and belongings from New Jersey to NYC. Renting a truck to move on your own is almost unheard of these days. You can’t put a price tag on the convenience of having a professional moving company take care of all the moving-day details. There are other challenging aspects to consider when planning your move.

Packing up your belongings is not the most desirable activity either. Figuring out what to take with you and what to leave behind can be nerve-racking. If your new home and old home are equal in size, then you have a lot less about which to be concerned. The conundrum develops when the two spaces are starkly different in size. Assuming you will be paring down, you may need to consider a putting some of your things in a storage unit. The good news is, you don’t have to manage all these aspects of the move on your own.  Do you need a storage unit? Roadway Moving has you covered. Do you need help with packing your belongings?
