Guide to moving from NYC to Jacksonville


You decided on moving from NYC to Jacksonville and you need a few tips on how to organize better. You probably did this before and you already know you must create a moving plan, packing plan, and search for long-distance moving companies New York. But do not worry for a second because we will help you cover the whole process. Let’s organize your relocation together.

Start with the budget when moving from NYC to Jacksonville

You can start looking for the cheap movers NYC straight away but maybe it is better to inspect everything first and figure out the size of your budget. If you know the exact number, then you’ll have more room to invest or save. Therefore, inspect the whole environment and figure out how hard it can be. Check how many furniture and boxes you’ll have and this way you’ll know the number of packing materials required. Once you know this info, contact your movers and purchase services that fall within the limits of your moving budget.

You can’t start moving from NYC to Jacksonville before you hire a reliable moving company. Hence, go online and browse for an hour. You’ll find many viable choices. Narrow it down to the top five and then give them a closer look. Compare services, prices, and read reviews. In a matter of minutes, you’ll have your pick. Once you do, you can either give them a call or inspect them more thoroughly. We will explain this process further down the line.

Confirm your movers are up to the task

Now when you have a moving company in mind, you should double-check if they are legit. And you will do this easily by inspecting their website inside out. Check if they have a company logo, contact info, and a physical address listed. Then, read a few moving reviews to figure out if previous customers are happy with their service. Finally, give them a call and confirm they have all the tools, equipment, manpower, and license before you hire them. You can even check United States Movers Association, Yellow Pages, FMCSA, or the Better Business Bureau and confirm your movers are registered online. And that should be enough.

Onsite estimates are essential when moving from NYC to Jacksonville

Now when you have a moving company with you, schedule a visit and let them perform onsite estimates. It is the best service possible and it is free. Your moving representative will evaluate the environment, cargo, and all the possibilities for moving mishaps. They will prepare everything to be stress-free, time-efficient, cheaper, and safer. Once they are done, you will be presented with the final moving price and a unique moving plan.

Organize packing on time

If you want to reach the other side without a single broken dish, you must organize packing patiently. Give yourself some time to evaluate everything and figure out where to start. We advise starting with the kitchen because of all the fragile content it holds. So, you should visit your nearest store and obtain cardboard boxes, packing tape, labels, and some kind of cushion. You can use blister packs, Styrofoam, packing peanuts, or blankets you already have at your home. Whatever fits better into your moving budget. Then simply pack gradually removing room by room and keeping up the pace you are most comfortable with. Remember to label each box adequately to point out the content of the box. It will help both you and your movers.

A few more things and we can start moving

You can’t forget to check all your documents and papers before you can settle in. You will need your documents at your new address as soon as you move in. To avoid unpleasant situations, you should cover the following:

  • Personal ID, passport, and driver’s license.
  • Medical records.
  • Credit cards and valuable documents.
  • All relevant moving documents and a moving contract.

Ensure everything is up to date and valid, and that all parties are informed about this change. Note that some of the hard copies will take more time to transfer. This means you must cover this process at least a month in advance.

Now you know how to organize when moving from NYC to Jacksonville. As you can see, if you have a moving checklist and a reliable moving crew with you, you will have a successful relocation. Good luck.

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.
