Common Questions Regarding Moves to Newark
When Is the Best Time to Move in Newark?
Newark certainly has its share of sunny and clear days, but it receives an average of 46.24 inches of precipitation and 29.5 inches of snow annually. The city falls somewhere between humid and subtropical climates, so plan for hot humid summers and cold, damp winters. Not to worry though; FlatRate will get your belongings to your new place without flinching over anything falling from the sky.
One more thing to keep in mind when timing your move; street closures for parades, construction and sporting events are normal in Newark and could delay transit. This site, as well as your NJ movers, can keep you in the loop on any happenings around the time of your scheduled move.
What's the Deal With Newark Traffic?
While Newark’s city limits may fall about 15 miles outside of New York City, you can still expect Big Apple traffic to impact the Brick City’s highways and bi-ways. Traffic can be pretty heavy in main corridors, especially during rush hours as suburbanites flee downtown around 5 p.m. And you know those huge dips on the George Washington Bridge? Our drivers do! We know almost every single crevice of the road, meaning your belongings get from Point A to Point B in one piece. If you choose to move with FlatRate, our specialists will develop a “Move Plan,” where our movers will create a road map to assist with your transportation needs. This keeps everyone on point and stress to a minimum.
It’s best to keep in-the-know on road conditions, traffic hold-ups and best routes by visiting this site before starting your commute, or downloading the Beat the Traffic app on your smart phone to get personalized traffic information while you’re out and about.
Where Can I Find Moving Boxes in Newark?
Like most big cities, Newark is chock full of big-box stores and smaller corner markets—many of which give away old and used boxes. And if those types of boxes meet your moving needs, that’s great! But if you feel more comfortable using brand new boxes, designed to protect all of your most valuable items, you can order a variety of shapes and sizes through FlatRate.
And as an added service to our Newark-area customers, we’re able to deliver these high-quality moving boxes right to your doorstep, saving yourself the time and the pain of having to find the right boxes for your stuff. We aim to add convenience— not worry or stress!
Where Can I Park in Newark?
Driving in Newark can be a pain, but for many of its residents, it’s also a reality. If you find yourself bringing a car to the Brick City, make sure you know how to safely park it without getting fined, ticketed or towed. Many local lots and garages let you scope out open spaces by putting your start/end time here. You’ll get back a list of spots and their prices.
Your New Jersey movers can give you the basics on Newark parking rules, such as opposite side parking and maneuvering the meters downtown, but for a comprehensive list of Newark’s parking rules and regulations, make sure you visit this site.

If you want to venture a few miles out of Newark, Bayonne County Park has a dog run, spray ground and a waterfront track. And at Eagle Rock Reservation there is a nice network of nature trails.
Newark Food and Drink
There are plenty of Newark restaurants to tempt your taste buds. Fernandes Steak House and Seabra Marisqueira are both Portuguese restaurants and well-known for their sangria. Quench your sushi cravings with Nizi Sushi Newark or Sushi House 21. And if soul food is what you’re after, head to Vonda's Kitchen, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que or Duke's Southern Table.
