The two words that best define the wishes of every moving customer are “affordable” and “reputable.” We all want to get the best possible service from a highly reputable company, yet spend a reasonable amount of money. But is it possible to combine the two? We believe so. Here is how you can look for moving companies that are both reputable and affordable.

Timing is Everything

An early start on your preparations can save you a lot of effort and money. Especially during the busy summer months, it is best to contact movers at least six weeks in advance. Starting the process early will give you more time to make inventory adjustments, sort out the various offers from different movers and do some of the packing on your own.

Searching for the Right Company  

Finding a mover that is both affordable and reputable is also a question of focusing your search efforts. Local moving services in Jersey City will be able to give you more affordable prices. Companies that are remote from your area will normally need to charge higher rates.

Working with your Mover to Lower the Costs  

Decide in advance whether you want to do the packing on your own or whether you want the moving company to do all your packing for you. You can try and combine the two by packing non-breakable items, such as books and files, on your own and have the movers take care of breakable items, electronic equipment and so on. Work closely with your movers by providing them with accurate inventory lists and updating them about any changes. A good mover will be able to give you advice and suggestions regarding how to lower the costs of your local or long distance relocation.

    The quote process was very thorough and transparent. Alpha followed up to see if we had any questions prior to booking as well as called to confirm the … More moving date and time prior to the move. They showed up on time, were extremely careful and wrapped the furniture very well. The movers were hardworking - it was a long, hot day but they were pleasant throughout. Would highly recommend.

    Alpha Moving & Storage did a great job helping me move. Very professional and easy to work with. Detailed estimate let me know what to expect for … More pricing. They worked with my Building Management company to get all the details about the move ironed out so I didn't have to worry. The movers were fast, friendly and very careful with my things. Alpha Moving was the best choice for my move. I would definitely use them again!

    We spoke to several moving companies but Alpha was the only one who could confirm our highly desirable end of month date on short notice. They delivered … More an accurate flat rate and everything went smoothly on our move day. Our 4 person crew was personable, professional and very hard working and I will highly recommend this company in the future.
