    Questions to Ask When You Are Screening a Potential Roommate

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Before moving in with someone, it is important to take the time to determine whether or not you are compatible. Screening a potential roommate will help you both decide if you can enjoy a comfortable living arrangement. Be sure to ask the following questions to ensure that you make a good roommate pairing.

    Are You Neat or Messy?
    If you are a very clean person, living with a messy person can cause a lot of problems. You want to make sure you are on the same page about cleanliness before you move in to avoid unnecessary issues. If you are a messy person, you should discuss it with the other person just to see whether or not that would be an issue for them.

    Are You Quiet or Sociable?
    Narrow down your selection by finding someone who complements your personality. If you like to keep to yourself and stay at home, you might not want to live with someone who likes to have people over. If you are more on the social side, however, you may not want to find a roommate that likes to stay secluded in the quiet of his or her own room.

    Do You Have or Want Any Pets?
    Pets could also be a big issue for new roommates if you do not talk about it before you agree to live together. Ask whether or not a potential roommate has pets or might get them in the future and discuss your feeling on animals. Being honest about your wants and expectations helps everyone enjoy a quality living arrangement.

    •  I had a great experience using Men on the Move from NJ to Queens last Summer. I was able to book with Peter on very short notice. The two movers that arrived, Humberto and Ted were very courteous and had no issue with handling some of the special requests we had on the day of the move. They arrived a bit late but certainly made up for it... More

    Your Guide to Packing Supplies

    Last updated 4 years ago

    When moving, you need a lot more than strong arms and a big truck. To make sure your belongings stay organized and your move goes smoothly, you need plenty of packing supplies. The right supplies can also help prevent your possessions from breaking en route.

    Before you get serious about moving, you’ll need to find boxes of all sizes. Large boxes are best for pillows, blankets, and other light items, while books and kitchenware should go in smaller boxes. You might also look for special wardrobe boxes to help keep your clothes in good shape during your move. Be sure to have plenty of packing tape on hand, as it will help keep your boxes from falling apart. Lastly, you might consider special boxes, filling, and other packing supplies for your fine China, TV, microwave, and other delicate items.

    Men on the Move is proud to make moving as easy as possible for current or soon-to-be Long Island residents. In addition to packing supplies, we offer respectful moving services and secure storage services. Contact our Long Island office at (718) 618-5456 to learn more.
