Congratulations on your big decision to move to California!

Relocating from east coast to west coast is exciting. It’s a completely different area with different weather, cultures, and attitudes. Moving from New Jersey to California will no doubt be an exciting change, but it’s a BIG move. Moving in itself can be a stressful event, but moving thousands of miles can take stress to a new level. If you’re considering a big move to the west coast, sourcing a NJ to CA mover that specializes in hauling customers’ possessions cross-country is a decision you’ll be glad you made.

Successful long-distance moves involve keeping items safe and away from things that could scratch or break them. It also involves finding a company that is professional with their business dealings as well as their communication.

Tips for Moving from NJ to CA

If you’re moving from New Jersey to California, you’re in for some pretty big changes — fun ones, that is. California is one of the most populated states in the U.S., and cities like Hollywood, Los Angeles, and San Francisco are constantly idolized in movies and other media. And that’s no fluke — these cities are beautiful, bustling with culture, and surrounded by palm trees and year-round pleasant weather. It’s no wonder that you’re moving there! 

Now that you’ve made your decision to move from New Jersey to California, here are a few things you should know before arriving in your new state: 

  • California is much more reliant on cars. While big cities like New York City, and big-city areas like New Jersey rely on public transportation, California is different. After all, there’s a reason Los Angeles is known for its traffic. So if you’re relocating to California, you might want to look into getting a car if you don’t already have one, or at least figure out how to get around without one, as the process will be very different. 
  • Cost of living is high. Endless sunny skies and breezy weather feel like paradise — and that’s why so many people want to live in California. San Francisco is one of the world’s most prominent tech hubs, and overpopulation and high salaries have caused rent prices to skyrocket in the city. But virtually every city in the state has a steep cost of living, as California taxes are higher than many other states. 
  • Fresh produce is abundant. California is one of the country’s top agricultural producers, especially of avocados, oranges, and tomatoes. At farmers markets, you’ll find plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables, and nuts sprouted in the golden California sun. 
  • Earthquakes are commonplace. California sits on major fault lines such as the San Andreas Fault. State residents have gotten used to small tremors every now and then, making it a priority to adequately secure mirrors, picture frames, and other fragile items, just in case they should go crashing to the floor. Many residents also have go-bags and food storage ready in the event of power outages or property damage. 
  • California is a melting pot. As California was once part of Mexico, and parts of it sit on the U.S.-Mexico border, cultures have blended to create a beautiful, unique place to live. San Diego and Los Angeles especially have high Latino populations. So while you’re brushing up on your Spanish, enjoy the vibrant culture and some of the world’s best tacos.

California requires certain documentation regarding inspection of Gypsy Moths. By moving with a professional moving company like White Glove Moving & Storage, we know exactly what needs to get done so there is smooth sailing across state lines. 

New Jersey, New York and most of the other states in the New England are considered quarantine area’s for European Gypsy Moths. When you are moving from a quarantine area to California, a non-quarantine area, you must inspect your outdoor household items for gypsy moths and remove all life stages of this destructive insect before you move.
