New Jersey Moving Service Options

The time to move has come and you have no idea who to contact what type of service you actually need? Look no further, this new Alpha Moving and Storage blog article offers some brief explanation regarding the various moving options available to you. 

Full Service vs. Partial Service 

Assuming you want to use a moving company rather than rent a U-Haul and do the move yourself, your first decision should be whether to go for the full-service option or the partial-service option. Full-service means that the movers pack and unpack for you, provide the packing materials and all the relevant labor. Partial service means that you will pack some of the items yourself and the movers will simply load and offload them for you. We recommend full-service for larger moves, especially long-distance ones.   

Questions to Ask Your Relocation Service Provider 

First, ask for the mover’s licensing information and verify its validity. Then ask for some references from past customers. You should ask whether the pick-up date is guaranteed and about charges for packing and packing materials. Ask the mover how many years it has been in existence. It is recommended that you have a moving company representative to come to your house and provide you a written price quote on location. 

Why the Local Option is Always Better 

The local option is always preferable. A local mover will be able to offer you better rates, have more available movers to send you and send its local on-site relocation consultant to your house to provide you with a free estimate.

    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.
