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.

    Alpha Moving did a wonderful job helping us move into our new apartment! They quickly got multiple large pieces of furniture out of a suburban house and … More into a 4 story walk-up apartment in the city. The movers themselves were very gracious and went out of their way to help us set the furniture up and make sure everything fit into our space. Their prices and quality were unbeatable and they were very timely, communicative and prompt the day of. I would highly recommend them and will be using them again in the future!

    The Alpha team was amazing. From proposal, to scheduling, to the actual move day…the team delivered on everything promised in a courteous and professional … More manner. My movers took the time to protect floors and door jambs during the move. They carefully wrapped items to ensure safe transport. They were kind enough to handle some reshuffling once we got to the destination. It was a pleasure working with the team and I would highly recommend their services.

    Alpha Moving is the best moving company I have ever dealt with and we have moved quit a bit. They arrive on time, move very quickly and efficiently. … More From the office staff to the moving crew they are all very professional and polite. Their pricing is right on compared to other quotes we received. This is the second time we have hired them within 6 years and we will definitely use them again for our next move.
