Moving to New Jersey: Pros and Cons
If you’re considering living in New Jersey you’ll find that there are a number of good reasons for moving to that state. You’ve probably already realized the advantages of making the move. But it sometimes takes a long time to decide if relocating is the right thing to do, so it’s a good idea to take a while to think about the details before you decide if it’s right for you.
Each year, a lot of people move to new homes in the United States. Around 12 percent of the population, or about 35 million people, leave their current residence for a new domicile. A number of families and individuals from across the country relocate to New Jersey, and they often find that it can be an exciting adventure.
If you’re new to New Jersey, there are many new sights and experiences in store for you. Numerous guidebooks and online sites supply an almost endless inventory of information about every conceivable benefit that the state offers.
Among your first decisions will be selecting the best places to live in New Jersey. Do you prefer life in the city, a small town or in the country? You can find a variety of options that will fit the kind of environment that suits you best. The next step is to choose several different locations that fit your preferences, and then look at the advantages that each provides. If you have friends or relatives you’d like to be near, that can help you narrow down the options. They can also probably help you make a good decision by providing advice and inside information.
Once you’ve considered the many advantages and opportunities the state offers, you’ll probably be asking yourself, should I move to New Jersey, to another state that’s also interesting, or should I stay in my current state? It all depends on your reasons for moving. Sometimes your circumstance can help to make your choices clear. If you’re relocating for a new job, for instance, that makes your decision easier. Otherwise, you must weigh the benefits that you’ll reap by making the move.
Economic decisions always play a role when it comes to making a move, so you’ll of course want to consider the cost of living in New Jersey. Taxes, fees, the price of real estate and many other factors determine how far your money will go in any geographic location. You can look at the cost of food, utilities and other day-to-day or year-to-year expenses and make your own calculations. Or, find an online cost-of-living calculator and let it do the work for you.
There’s a great deal of information that you’ll want to consider if you’d like to move to New Jersey, and that may take a bit or research on your part. The time you invest in finding the facts will be worthwhile, most likely. Should you decide to make the move you’ll feel more confident about your decision, and you’ll likely have a good idea of what to expect in your new home.
Registering a Car in New Jersey and Getting a New Jersey Drivers License
It can be challenging to get around almost everywhere without your own source of transportation, so it’s a good idea to ensure that you know the rules of the road and any new regulations that you’ll be obliged to follow. When you’re moving to New Jersey, the DMV will likely be among the many stops you’ll want to make as soon as you begin to get settled. Start out by looking at the New Jersey.gov DMV website. It supplies a lot of the information you’ll need to know and can save you a lot of time.
You’re probably most interested in finding out the facts about transferring your car registration, such as how much it will cost and how soon you must make a transfer after becoming a resident of the state. Fortunately, you can find all of that information online.
Another top question for motorists taking up residence in the state is what must I do about my driver’s license? Again, you’ll find all of the facts that you need to know on the government site. In addition, you can learn about all of the rules associated with registering a car in New Jersey.
Moving to New Jersey with Guns
If you’re an outdoorsman and are moving to New Jersey with guns, you’ll want to know what regulations and licensing procedures you’re facing.
New Jersey has no constitutional provision explicitly guaranteeing the right to keep and bear arms for ordinary citizens.
In New Jersey, anyone seeking to purchase firearms is required to obtain a lifetime Firearm Purchaser Identification card, commonly referred to as FID, for the purchase of rifles and shotguns. To purchase a handgun, a separate permit is needed from the Chief of Police of their municipality, or the Superintendent of State Police if the municipality does not have a local police department. A permit is required for each handgun to be purchased and expires after 90 days but may be extended for an additional 90 days at the discretion of the Chief of Police or Superintendent of State Police.
New Jersey may issue a Permit to Carry a Handgun to both residents and non-residents. One must submit an application to the chief law enforcement officer of one’s municipality, or the Superintendent of State Police in areas where there is no local police department.
You may find that the gun laws in New Jersey are more lenient or more restrictive than the laws in the state that you are moving from. In either case it’s a good idea to contact your local law enforcement agency to ensure that you’re getting the most up-to-date rules and regulations, whether you’re moving to New Jersey with a handgun rifle or shotgun.
5 Ultimate Tips for Moving to New Jersey
Relocating to a new state can be a tricky business, so you’ll certainly benefit by picking up any tips to make moving to New Jersey a little easier. Here’s a handful of items that will help you get started:
- Be Prepared for Extreme Weather. You cannot fully appreciate just how extreme weather can be in New Jersey until you live here.
- Have an Emergency Plan. If you do not have an emergency place to go, at least have an emergency kit with water, solar charger, and a source of heat to get you through.
- Can’t Pump Your Own Gas. Before you reach for that nozzle at the fuel pump you should know that it is illegal to pump your own gas in New Jersey. In 1949, it was ruled that due to fire hazards it is in the best interest of the public to not pump their own gas.
- New Jersey Left. Officially called a “jughandle,” these little slip roads can be very confusing when you first start encountering them. Be prepared to do a lot of backtracking for a while until you learn to not miss your exit.
- BYOB. A lot of restaurants in New Jersey are BYOB, or bring your own bottle. Yes, just like your college parties, only classier.
It’s never exactly easy to make such a big decision as moving, particularly if you plan to move to another part of the country that’s far away. But you’re probably taking the time to think about all of the pluses and minuses that you may encounter. So, when your mind is made up and you’ve decided to go, and you have your heart set on a new, exciting destination that you’ll soon call home, take the leap! Call us for an estimate and the professionals here will help you begin your new journey. It could be the first step you’ll take on a long road of exciting adventures.
