If you about to embark on a long distance move, then you have come to the right place. This new Alpha Moving and Storage blog article provides some of the most vital information you will require to make a careful and educated choice and find the perfect Jersey City mover for your long distance move.

Searching the Internet for a Local and Reliable Jersey City Mover

The first thing to consider is reputation. Only a reputable company will provide you with an estimate that will remain the same on the day of the move. There are plenty of shady companies that deliberately make their offers seem attractive, then increase the moving price under various pretexts. So be sure to contact the Better Business Bureau, ask for references and double check the licensing information.

Making Reputation and Price Comparisons

You should be aware of the face that comparing prices does not necessarily involve looking at the bottom line total on your estimate. What you should be comparing instead is the basic charge unit, the price per pound or cubic foot for long distance moves, and the price per hour for local move. Also, you should compare added services fees, such as prices for packing and packing supplies.

Receiving your Estimate and Communicating with your Estimator

Try to receive your estimate at least four weeks prior to your actual moving date. We recommend that you do not settle for a phone estimate, but ask the moving company to send a representative to your house and provide you with an on-location written quote. Regular communication with your estimator and mover is highly important. Be sure to update your estimator of any change and fluctuations, even ones that seem trivial. You never know what might make a difference and it is better to be safe than sorry.

    During a difficult week with unplanned events, I had to change the date of my move last minute. Alpha was extremely accommodating & was able to reschedule … More for another day that week. Everyone from the booking team to the movers were fantastic! They truly made me feel at ease at a time that could’ve been super stressful. The team packed and handled my belongings so efficiently and with great care! If you are looking to move, do not bother calling another company.. Alpha is the only choice!

    Excellent experience with Alpha. From my initial phone call with Marc, to the assessment with Andrew, to packing and moving day, everything was top notch! … More
    This is my first time having a premium moving service pack for me so I was astounded by how thorough, fast and organized the process was.
    The move itself was seamless. Not a scratch on anything. They were a professional, friendly and hardworking team. They were prompt and skilled so I knew we were in good hands.
    I highly recommend Alpha for even the most discerning customers.
