Alpha Moving and Storage specializes in long distance moving. This new article relies on our extensive knowledge and experience and provides a concise guide for long distance relocation.

Seeking out the Perfect Long Distance Company for your Move

Good old-fashioned recommendations are often the best. Ask your friends and relatives for moving company recommendations. If you are searching the internet, make sure to check and verify the information provided in the various moving websites. Many websites merely broker out your information to unknowns moving companies.

Receiving and Comparing Estimates

In order to make sure you are dealing with an actual, local moving company, ask the relocating service to send a representative to your house and provide you with an on-location estimate. Such estimates will almost always be more accurate, as the estimator views your items, and is made aware of packing needs, potential parking and access difficulties and so on. Be sure to show the estimator everything that you are intending on moving. If you purchase or sell items after the estimator’s visit, be sure to give him a call and provide and timely update.

Making Decisions

Your decision should be based on pricing and reputation. Never select a moving and relocation company about whose reputation you are not certain. Before beginning with the price comparisons, you should contact the Better Business Bureau. Also, double check that all the licensing information is on the up and up.

If you have any questions about long distance, long distance estimates, receiving an on-location quote or any other moving-related issues, don’t hesitate and call Alpha Moving and Storage.

    We’ve moved a few times recently and had bad experiences. The folks at Alpha were responsive, courteous, and professional. They showed up to our home before … More the move to walk through and make sure we both understood the services provided and to give a realistic quote. They came in at budget and are comparable to other companies we reached out to. The crew worked with us and asked questions as the day went along and—believe it or not—nothing was broken. We’re hoping to stay put for a long time in our new home, but if we have to move again, we’ll be giving them a call.

    I've used Alpha for 4 recent moves. I keep coming back to them because they are professional, timely and courteous. They go out of their way to accommodate … More my requests. I can't imagine using a different company.

    Alpha and their crew were amazing! Don’t waste your time calling the others movers listed on Hoboken Girl! Just call Alpha! Alpha was recommended to my … More by a friend who has used them multiple times. Let’s be honest, moving sucks. Alpha took the stress out of it and showed up exactly on time. I had to move my apartment into storage and on short notice. All the other movers said they were not available or quoted me over $3k. Alpha provided me a full pack and partial pack option and explained it was an estimate and I would be billed based on time and items. Well, I ended up doing a majority of the packing myself and they only charged for time and items which was significantly less than the original estimate. They also managed to get my whole apartment into a 10x10 storage unit. I was amazed!
