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.

    I completed a move last month with Alpha Movers, and was super pleased with their service. I've moved a lot in the past 6-7 years, and have used a … More handful of different moving companies, and this was for sure the easiest / smoothest move of all of them. The crew showed up and finished right on time, and were very professional and careful with my things (perhaps even more so than I would've been myself!). Their office staff was also very professional and responsive. I hope I don't have to move again soon, but in any case, I would absolutely use Alpha Movers again.

    I had a great experience with Alpha Moving & Storage!
    When I initially contacted, Marc was responsive and helped get an on-site estimate set up. Andrew
    … More came out and took inventory of all my moving items to provide an estimate, so there would be no hidden costs. He was professional, thorough and gave great peace of mind.
    Day of the move, the movers showed up on time and ready to go. They were professional and very efficient taking stock of everything and getting the move underway. The entire 1 bedroom apartment was moved out and moved in within 3.5 hours door-to-door, even with the rainy conditions.
    The four movers worked super efficiently together and had a great system in place. They were professional and detailed making sure everything was placed in the desired location in the new space. Having the estimate done in advance was also very helpful as the only difference in price was to account for tax. It was nice to have no big surprises with moving costs and keep within budget.
    Alpha was recommended to me by my realtor and I would also highly recommend using them for your next move!

    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!
