Essex County – Populated, Affluent, and Beautiful

Formed in 1675, Essex County was named after the same county of Essex in England.  It is home to Newark, the largest city in New Jersey.  Essex County is also home to many affluent municipalities such as Millburn, Montclair, North Caldwell, and Livingston.  It also contains many colleges and universities such as Seton Hall University, Montclair State University, and New Jersey Institute of Technology.  Newark International Airport is located in Essex County and is a very large transportation hub for United Continental Airlines, offering a more convenient alternative to New York City’s Kennedy Airport and a jumping-off point for hundreds of destinations world-wide.

Moving to Essex County, NJ

As New Jersey’s third-most populous county, Essex County is a fast-growing industrial area that is perfect for growing families and growing businesses. Essex County is also part of the New York metropolitan area, making it an ideal location for those who commute into the city.

This area has a rich history, and is the first county in the United States to have a countywide park system. The area experienced unprecedented growth after the Revolutionary War, and today nearly 800,000 residents call Essex County home. Newark, the county seat, is the most populous in New Jersey. Other populated cities include East Orange, Irvington, Bloomfield, West Orange, and Montclair.

Moving can be stressful, not only because of packing and finding a new place to live, but also getting settled into your new city or town. At White Glove Moving & Storage, we make moving easier throughout New Jersey. We’ve compiled this helpful guide to help you feel more at home in Essex County.

Update Your Address

As soon as you have moved to your new home, you should update your address. Take some time before or after your move to change or update your address for bills, utilities, phone plans, and more. The process varies from business to business, so ensure that you give yourself ample time to complete every step. While many places will let you change your address online, others will require you to come to their place of business to make the necessary changes, so plan accordingly.

Here are some places you should visit to update your address.

Additional Locations

Here are a few other places that you should contact to ensure they have your updated address:

  • Banks
  • Loan Providers
  • Subscription Services
  • Insurance
  • Your Office’s Payroll Department
  • Social Security Administration
  • IRS
  • Pharmacy Prescriptions

Find New Utility Services

About a week or so before you arrive at your new Essex County home, you should contact utility services to ensure that water, electricity, and other basic utilities are set up. You could also get in touch with cable and internet providers so that everything will be ready for you.

Many utility services, like water and sewer, are provided by one local agency. However, elective services such as cable and internet can be provided by different companies, so do your research beforehand to find which company or package will be best for your needs.

Some services will require a technician to visit your home. Try setting these appointments up for the day you move in or the day after to get everything set up quickly and ready for you to use.

If you are moving within the same general area, you may be able to transfer your current accounts to your new address, so it’s always a good idea to contact your cable and internet providers to find out your options before canceling service.

Prepare Your Pets

Your furry friends need care, too, so don’t forget to find a new vet for them once you move to Essex County. You should also update I.D. tags and address information on a microchip, if you have one, to help get your pets back home if they get lost in an unfamiliar area. Moves can also be really stressful on animals, so you may want to consider boarding your pets during the move.

Know Your Neighborhood Rules

If you are moving into a home in Essex County that is part of a Homeowner’s Association (HOA), there might be rules about moving in, like where moving trucks can park or what hours they can be there. Contact a representative from your HOA to see if there are any restrictions or guidelines before you move in.

Consider Storage Units

Sometimes you move into a new place and realize that all of your belongings don’t quite fit like they did in your last home. When that happens, consider finding a reputable and secure storage unit in Essex County to keep your items safe until you need them again.

I'm so glad that I hired this company to take care of my move! The staff and movers were very professional, and they offered quick and great service!

This has been a great company. I would give them a ten if possible the pricing was reasonable and the customer service excellent. Stephanie, Matt and Dan were the people I mostly communicated with and all my question were answered the same day either by email or phone. The moving crew was excellent they took great care in package my mother's belongings and made sure to be careful with her things. They even have schedule the delivery for 9 days after pick up which I found amazing. I would totally recommend them for a cross country move.

I work for a small non-profit and supervise a team of 15 people. We hired Whiteglove to move our entire team to a new location and wow, this moving company was wonderful. Rick was our initial coordinator for our move; he was so helpful, understanding of our situation (non-profits are always on a tight budget) and reassuring that the move would go smoothly so that all of my stress was kept at a minimum. On the day of the move, Sebastian and his crew of 8 were professional, kind, hard-working and some of the most efficient movers I’ve ever used. They arrived promptly at 9:30 in the morning and finished moving everything to the new destination by 2 in the afternoon. I highly recommend this company for any moves that you have, small or large.

We recently moved from Bergen County to Monmouth County and using White Glove Moving & Storage was the easiest part of the process. They were punctual, professional and did a tremendous job all around. All items in the house were moved seamlessly and all returned to the proper rooms in our new home. No items were damaged or broken during the move and having the same foreman (Alfredo) at both locations made things very efficient and he did a terrific job.The original quote was spot on and executed by Lukas in a very timely manner. We would highly recommend using White Glove Moving & Storage.

Great move experience.Beginning with estimator- Omar, who took us thru each step that would happen and estimate was right on - to team foreman- Max, his crew was professional, courteous and hard working.Both pick-up and delivery were on time and no hassles.We did have damage to 1 of our almost 200 items but 1 phone call with Maggie in customer care took care of it.Would recommend White Glove to anyone looking for a hassle free move.Thanks to all!

Had an exceptional experience working with White Glove on my move from NYC to Austin, TX. Their price was very competitive with other quotes received and the service was excellent, particularly from Sean who walked me through the full process and was always available and extremely responsive for questions and help. The pickup crew was very careful packing everything, incredibly efficient and left the apartment clean upon departure. They were in and out of my two bedroom apartment in just a few hours. The delivery was right on time in the middle of the arrival window and the delivery crew was also exceptional. They carefully placed everything where it was supposed to go and expertly unwrapped and set up all the large items. Everything arrived in perfect condition with no damage or issues whatsoever. In short, the entire process was first rate and could not be happier with the move and the customer service throughout. Thank you White Glove for making this long-distance move as stress free as it could be.

I had White Glove pickup furniture and contents from Williamsburg Brooklyn; then store it all in their New Jersey warehouse for a month; and deliver all items to Cape Cod Massachusetts (after a last minute pickup in Boston area) Since we were not sure of the final delivery destination, White Glove provided an alternate quote for a Los Angeles delivery, as well as special provisions for our special circumstances. Their price was in the middle low end of three estimates. Just wanted to confirm that the delivery persons did an outstanding job yesterday for the new pickup and the full delivery in Massachusetts. Even though there were only two of them, they were diligent, prompt, careful, responsive and professional. No complaints by them despite terrible rainy weather, tricky staircases and a long delay before they could have lunch.. Nothing was damaged throughout the move.The pickup crew wrapped everything in careful and meticulous manner and the delivery persons took time to make sure everything was located where I wanted it, in good condition, and that they removed all debris etc before leaving. They protected the floors and walls as best they could. In short, I could not have asked for a more capable move with a focus on customer service. .With this final chapter of the White Glove service of contracting, pickup, storage and delivery, every aspect was performed in an excellent manner. Everyone we dealt with in this first rate company was helpful, responsive, reasonable and customer service oriented to make this entire move process with minimum stress.
