Long distance moves that involve storage require the use of a skillful and experienced relocation company. This new Alpha Moving and Storage blog post provides advice and information that will help you in finding the best long distance moving companies for long-term storage.

Understanding Your New Jersey Storage Options

Most professional companies will store your goods in a storage facility located at their local headquarters, close to the origin point of your move. Make sure companies do not offer you the use of a self-storage facility that does not belong to them. In order to do that, it is recommended that you pay a visit to the storage facility and make sure it is owned by the mover and adequate for your needs.

 Preparing for Storage

Storage and long distance moving are charged based on the volume of your shipment. Therefore, it is recommended that you trim down your inventory and sell or donate the stuff you don’t need. You don’t want to pay storage and moving fees for items you will end up throwing away at the destination point.

 Long and Short-Term Storage Options and Decisions

Some moving companies offer one month of free storage. This is especially significant for long distance moves that require only short-term storage. The movers should provide you with a set storage fee per month in advance. Also, you need to remember that moving in and out of storage requires professional packing. Be sure to inquire about packing services and prices in advance and make sure these are included with the quote provided you. For self-packing, ask for the guidance of the movers and their assistance with packing materials.

    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.
