    My husband and I have used Alpha for two moves—once from Manhattan to Jersey City and more recently from Jersey City to the Jersey Shore.
    The first move
    … More was during Covid, but Alpha was super diligent and professional. The second move was on an incredibly hot and humid day, and our movers still worked so hard and fast.
    For our second move, we also had to put our items in storage for a few weeks. Alpha made this super easy and had a thorough system for taking inventory of all our furniture and boxes.
    I can't say enough about how great Alpha is. We would use them again and recommend them to anyone. Their office employees are very responsive and helpful, and the movers are extremely skilled and professional.
    I've also found their prices to be much more reasonable than other companies in the area.
