Going Somewhere? Let Jersey City Movers Help!

Whether you're moving across town or across the country, professional Jersey City Movers are always available and happy to help. Feel secure when you put your valuable possessions in the hands of movers with extensive experience and a host of satisfied customers. Your local Jersey City Movers have an excellent driving record and a history of handling jobs carefully.

Pack it up with Jersey City Movers

Skilled Jersey City Movers can do more than just port your personal effects from Point A to Point B. Need assistance with packing? They have the professional know-how to do it well, and are pleased to take over and pack up your boxes. In addition, Jersey City Movers can supply boxes, packing tape, and other moving supplies at a cheaper rate than your local stores.

Your local food stores might offer boxes for free, but they are no where near as sturdy as actual moving boxes. Certainly, obtaining used cartons from the local grocery store will save you some money. But your savings won’t count for much if you discover at your destination that your possessions are broken. Professional Jersey City Movers have a full supply of flattened boxes straight from the factory, which they're happy to provide.

Some of the boxes offered by the Jersey City Movers are custom designed for specific tasks. For example, tall boxes with a bar at the top are meant for transporting the clothes hanging in your closet. Boxes designed to transport dishes are often more square than regular packing boxes. Mirror boxes are long and slim, with an interior cushion layer to protect the glass. Many Jersey City Movers may offer a specialized office tote, which is designed to carry folder files and has a lifting lid for easy access.

Jersey City Movers Can Handle Difficult Jobs

Large appliances, such as refrigerators and stoves, can be difficult to manage on a move. If you're moving your fridge, the Jersey City Movers recommend emptying and unplugging it at least 24 hours prior to your move. Donate or give away your perishable food, and place a stocking stuffed with charcoal, fresh ground coffee, or baking soda in each separate compartment. These will absorb unpleasant odors, keeping your fridge and freezer smelling fresh for your new home.

You should disconnect computers, stereos, and other small electronics from all their component parts, and pack them together as much as possible. The Jersey City Movers may ask you to plug these items in to ensure they're working prior to the move. This is for the protection of both parties - if your belongings get damaged, they need to be sure they were in proper working condition to begin with.

Experts from the Jersey City Movers will tie down appliances with bungee cords or straps that have been designed especially to secure heavy objects in the truck. Because the purpose of these belts is to hold appliances securely against the inner walls of the truck, you needn’t be concerned that they might slip or shift around while in transit.

On the Road with Jersey City Movers

The most important part of the moving effort is the truck, which safely transports all of your belongings from your current home to your new one. Professional Jersey City Movers ensure your truck is the right size, with plenty of room for all your personal effects.

Getting the right size truck is extremely important to reduce your mileage costs and get your moving trip over with as quickly as possible. Ideally, you shouldn't need to make more than two trips to carry all your belongings. Experienced Jersey City Movers can help you in this goal by packing your belongings in an efficient manner. Not only will they use space-saving planning for each box, they will organize the truck so that everything is tightly packed.

If your belongings don't quite fill the back of the truck, your Jersey City Movers will use a belt or bungee cord to secure your boxes against the back of the truck. It's important that none of your furniture or boxes slide into one another or shift when turning corners. The Jersey City Movers are ideal helpers on this task; they innately know to place heavier items on the bottom and arrange delicate boxes carefully on top - and they drive with extreme care.

With Jersey City Movers Your Move is a Breeze.

You should contact the Jersey City Movers several weeks or even a few months prior to your move, to make sure they'll be able to help you on that date. The best way to move quickly and easily is to be prepared before it's necessary. Pre-pack large or delicate items, and try to have everything packed and ready to load long before the movers arrive. You’ll avoid having to rush around gathering up items at the last minute and you’ll be saving time and money by being prepared. You’ll find the move will go much smoother and the crew from Jersey City Movers will appreciate you making their job easier.

If you know you need to move soon but you dread doing all the work, contact your local Jersey City Movers today. They’ll be happy to supply you with an estimate and all the encouragement, support, and advice you'll need to get from your old home to your new one. Why not let the Jersey City Movers show you how easy it is to take it with you?

Read What Our Customers Are Saying:

Very reliable company

For the last few days I have been thinking to share my positive moving experience with others. Last week I hired Great American Van Lines. I was moving to Mississippi to be with my fiancé. I always think moving from one place to another is nothing but hazard. So I wanted to make it safe under any circumstance. I talked with several movers and at last Great American Van Lines was my final choice due to their price rate and politely representation. Later on when I saw their work, my stress level went way down. They were very meticulous in packing my every house hold items. Upon delivery all of my items arrived in one piece. Very reliable company, everyone can hire them.

Great Job Great American Van Lines, NJ to IL

I recently used Great American Van Lines for a long distance move. After receiving quotes from four movers, I selected Great American Van Lines based on my interaction with the salesperson and reading other reviews. Steve and Jose were right on time, did a very careful job of packing and loading our belongings, and were cheerful and upbeat throughout the day. The delivery took place just a few days later according to our arrival and availability one we reached our destination. The move went very smoothly, I was pleased with their work, and would certainly use Great American Van Lines.

Great Job!!!

Great American Van Lines helped us relocate from New York to Virginia. We had our price from the start and since it was suitable for us we hired them to help us move. In 5 days the vans of the company were full with our belongings and then delivered to our new home.

Thank You For A Great Move

I used Great American Van Lines for my move from MD to CA. I got a number of quotes from different companies. Great American Van Lines appeared by far the most suitable with my budget. The sales manager was extremely helpful and cooperative to speak with. Their crews were punctual, extremely pleasant and skilled. The final price for the service provided was excellent, no hidden charge at all. I must confess that I have never worked with such honest guys like they are. I strongly recommend them for a great move, no matter if its long or short distance.

I Highly Recommend Great American Van Lines

I highly recommend Great American Van Lines. I bought some furniture from a friend of mine who was moving to Ohio so I hired Great American Van Lines to move it from her apartment to my house. My friend has moved every few years, so she is experienced with movers. She said they were on time and that they were hustling to get the furniture packed and loaded. She saw that they were very thorough and that they knew what they were doing. They arrived at my house and were polite, courteous, and efficient in getting the furniture moved into my house. They even moved some existing furniture for me to make room for the new furniture. Everything arrived in perfect condition. I highly recommend Great American Van Lines.

Thank You Great American Van Lines

We hired Great American Van Lines for our move from Connecticut to Houston, TX. This was our first long distance move and we were very nervous about the entire process after hearing so many bad things about scam companies. Luckily for us, Great American Van Lines were ready to prove to us that not all movers are out to rip you off!!!! Our relocation consultant, Otis, was very thorough during the estimate process and made sure to explain to us the full process of the move and services that were available to us. Otis provided us with a guaranteed price in writing for our move and was quick to offer suggestions on how to correctly prepare for the pickup date. The pickup went smoothly, and our things were delivered well within the window of dates we were given. The delivery crew not only brought our items into the home but placed them in the correct rooms and even set up our beds! We couldn’t have asked for an easier move process. Thank you guys!

So Appreciative Of The Help

So appreciative of the help these guys provided me in moving my belongings from my apartment. Normally I would have done it myself as I have in the past but just with work and having a child now it's tough to muster the energy. Heard all the stories about these companies and ripping you off but definitely was not the case here. These guys stuck to what they promised and performed very well. Guys were quick all had a company uniform and were very professional. Thank You Great American Van Lines for your help and I will definitely recommend you to my friends or family if they wind up moving. Thanks.
