Sarah answered:
There are tons of movers to choose from for a move from NJ to FL. Unfortunately, most movers in NJ are complete scams - they sell moves, barter, trade, and worse. It is important to find long distance movers who:
-will not sell/trade your shipment
-use their own trucks
-have their own labor ( full time labor)
-don't subcontract
-guarantee dates
-give flat rates

I suggest Monster Movers for any move on the East Coast.

thinz answered:
There are some smaller moving companies that move appliances and pianos that could be an option.
You may not get the same white glove treatment but it could save you money depending on how much stuff you have, and how comfortable you are with the service.
I've had clients use them in the past...but you will need to do the packing yourself which also helps the company from a liability standpoint...they are just moving, not doing all the packing....

John Westrich, Real Estate Pro in Allendale, NJ

John Westrich answered:
This depends on your usage. Is anyone home during the day, the average temperature outside as well as how hot you want to keep it inside.

Here is a suggestion, once you identify the home you are interested in you and your agent can call PSE&G and they can advise what the average cost for heat is per month. Not many people know that you can do this and this is public record.

Let me know if you need any assistance and I will be glad to help.

I Agree with John below. If you are renting, there is a window guard addendum for lease agreement and landlord should install it for you.

Hi Ark

The 1 hr commute to Port authority would best suit Hudson or Eastern Bergen County NJ.

All towns have great value for resale.

Give me a call I can guide you through the area, and find you the best home.

Best Regards,

Jose Martinez

Since this question can still be read by all...... it's all good information for everyone to see. (Agents and Public)

If anyone knows any information about schools or towns; that isn't available easily, should be posted for all to read.

Trulia keeps these questions posted so they can be useful for all who reads them. Today. .. tomorrow. ... Next year.

The information I posted is great information about the Union School District...... That I feel the average buyer doesn't know.
Posting it on Trulia is a way of posting it to the public.
