Guide to moving from Brooklyn to Montclair

You made a decision to take the plunge and move to a new home. This new beginning and moving from Brooklyn to Montclair can seem overwhelming – especially if you’re not moving alone. Moving to another home confronts you with numerous challenges. The paperwork of moving and unregistering seems almost beside the point when you think of critical situations: new job, new friends, new school, and new lampposts for the dog. A guide for moving to another home helps you stay organized and have a Plan B in case Murphy’s Law strikes when you move. Therefore U.Santini  Moving and Storage Brooklyn have prepared a guide for you.

Visit a new place of residence

After you sign the lease for your new apartment it is time to familiarize yourself with your new surroundings. If you are moving to an unfamiliar place, it is worth visiting before the actual move. It is advisable to spend at least one vacation weekend to clarify the following questions, for example:

  • Where are the nearest shopping facilities?
  • How far is it to school and kindergarten?
  • What are the public transport connections?
  • How far is it to the new workplace?
  • Which gym do you like best?
  • Which restaurants and cafes appeal to you?
  • Where is the nearest park?

Look at places that are important to you: playgrounds, schools, and shopping as well as cultural offerings, clubs, and recreational activities.

If you find everything that you need before a move it will be easier for you to adjust once the move is done.

Best time for moving

There are many reasons that the summer is the best season for moving from Brooklyn to Montclair. For example, there is no snow or black ice to restrict transportation. Plus, no leaves that make the way to the track slippery and (usually) no rain to soften the moving boxes. With the nice weather, the mood rises and moving, and renovating is really fun. Well, hopefully, summer will come soon – according to many, the best time for apartment hunting and moving. According to the motto “Everything new makes May”, many have also voted for spring as the best time for moving. Allegedly, many couples separate in the spring and so a new apartment is needed quickly. Furthermore, it is no longer too cold in the spring but not yet so warm that you sweat when moving.

Start packing

No need to take clothes out of your closet piece by piece, you can fold them and pack them in boxes. Just cover all the hanging clothes with garbage bags, tie them at the top of the hangers, and you are done. Now you can just take the clothes out of the closet, put them in the moving truck, and quickly hang them back in the closet in the new apartment. The dishes need to be packed into the moving boxes, and so do the towels. Commercial movers NYC advise you to combine them and use the towels as filling material. This saves packing paper, bubble wrap, and space in the boxes. Place plates vertically in the boxes. You can use the same principle for glasses and vases. You can pack glasses in socks. For more protection use newspapers, towels, or clothing between the jars as padding.

Packing the start box

After you move from Brooklyn to Montclair, there is usually little time and strength to unpack all the boxes right away and assemble all the furniture. However, there are things that you need every day. That is why it is important to think about what will be needed in the first few days before the move. Pack a starter box with these things for each family member. Think about the toiletry bag, pajamas, items for dinner and breakfast, clothes for the second day, towels, important documents, and medications. And do not forget: A corkscrew should also go in. After all, that bottle of wine you bought to toast after the hard work of moving will want to be opened. Remember to transport the start box last and preferably in your own vehicle. That way you will not lose it.

Children need extra care

Remember that a change of residence is much more stressful for a child than for you. In addition, he or she is confronted with a completely new and unfamiliar environment.  Free yourself up to enjoy free time together with your kids. Plan fun activities and outings – for example, a few hours at a water park or zoo. Open communication about initial difficulties is important. Sweeping problems under the rug usually accomplish little. Take the bull by the horns and look for solutions together. Do not be afraid to make new contacts. Introduce yourself and your kids to your new neighbors. This will break the ice and make you feel welcome and at home much faster.
