There are numerous moving and relocation companies advertising their services in Jersey City, NJ. Finding the ideal company for your particular relocation needs will require patience and careful research. This new Alpha Moving and Storage blog article will show you how to search and find the ideal company for your next move.

The Importance of Seeking a Local Mover

Why a local company? Because a local Jersey City, New Jersey local company will be familiar with your particular neighborhood, parking restrictions and building requirements. A local JC company will be able to handle last minute unexpected developments, send additional movers, if needs be and quickly respond to any other last-minute requirement.

Making Sure Your Mover is Genuinely Local

The simplest, most obvious and easiest way of making sure your company is genuinely local is paying it a visit. Ask to schedule an appointment at the local Jersey City offices of your mover. Meet the staff, inspect the storage facility and trucks and the equipment. Any legitimate mover should not have a problem accommodating such a request.

Checking your JC Mover’s Reputation

In our opinion, you should begin with requesting references from customers that have recently relocated. You can ask your mover for some email addresses of pleased customers. Drop such past customers a line and ask them about their experiences with the mover. A quality company should have more than enough references to offer you with. Of course, you should always check with the Better Business Bureau. Be sure to check if the company tried to resolve the complaints against it. This should demonstrate how healthy the mover’s attitude towards its clients is.

    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!
