Planning a move involves making many decisions. By the time you need to make your decision about the moving company you should choose, you may be too tired or distracted to make the right decisions. However, making a correct and educated decision when selecting your mover is crucial for the successful outcome of your relocation. This new Alpha Moving and Storage article offers a few key points for you to follow when making this important selection.

When and How to Get your Moving Estimate

Ideally, you should begin your search for movers at least four to six weeks before your actual pickup date. Starting early will allow you enough time to look for reputable movers, make thorough price comparisons and calculated decisions. If you are moving during the busy summer months, getting an estimate early is a must. Most reputable moving companies will be booked in advance.

Making Storage Decisions

If you are in need of storage services, check if your mover has its own storage facility. Make sure the mover stores your goods in its own warehouses and not in some self-storage facility. You may want to pay a visit to the mover and inspect the storage facilities for yourself. For long distance moves, check if the mover can offer you up to one month of free storage.

Updating your Mover and Preparing for your Moving Day

Ask your relocation consultant about packing charges and inquire about items that you can pack for yourself to lower the moving costs. Be sure to provide your relocation consultants timely updates regarding any inventory changes or any other fluctuations.

    Had a great experience working with Alpha. The moving crew was efficient and professional, handling everything with care. Reasonable prices and clear communication … More from start to finish on the process and cost. The crew easily disassembled and reassembled furniture, even removing and reinstalling a door to get in some bulkier items. Would definitely recommend Alpha to anyone moving in the future.

    We hired Alpha Moving and Storage for our recent move, and everything went very well. Preparatory work (scheduling, estimates) went very smoothly, and all … More my questions were answered quickly. Moving day was quick and efficient. The movers took lots of care with our belongings, and asked plenty of questions to make sure that everything was placed where we wanted it. Prices very reasonable. A+ service.
