Finding the right moving company for your coming move in Jersey City and the surrounding area depends on three things: selecting a local company with offices and facilities in JC, receiving a written estimate and making the communication and selection choices. This new Alpha Moving and Storage article will help you in making that right choice.

Understanding what “Local” in Moving Actually Means

Many companies present themselves as local, while actually located miles and miles away from Jersey City. This is why you need to request the actual address from each company you communicate with. Make sure you don’t get a P.O box, or an address for a self-storage facility.

Receiving an Estimate from your Local Jersey City Company

Ask your mover to send an estimator to your house and provide you with a written estimate. Such estimates are far more accurate. Most times, a local mover should not have a problem to send you an estimator. On the contrary, if the company is genuinely located in Jersey City, an estimator should be easily available.

Communicating with your Jersey City Mover and making the Right Choice

Start early, contact your local Jersey City mover at least three to five weeks in advance to ensure availability. When the time comes to select your moving company, be sure to compare the basic charge unit. This is the price per hour for local moves and the price per cubic foot or per pound for long distance moves.

If you have any questions about local or long distance moving in Jersey City or the surrounding area, be sure to contact an Alpha Moving and Storage relocation consultant for further details.

    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!
