Long distance moving, especially when storage is involved, comprises of several complex stages – pick up, moving the goods into storage, moving the goods out of storage and long distance delivery. Because of the complexities involved, choosing a reputable and experienced company is highly important. This new Alpha Moving and Storage article contains some valuable tips that will help you in receiving and checking long distance and storage estimates.

Gathering Estimate from Reputable Companies

We recommend that you receive between three to six estimates from local and reputable companies. All companies you are considering should own their own fleet of trucks and trailers and have their own storage facilities. Avoid companies that rent trucks, trailers and storage space rather than owning them.

Reading the Fine Print

Many moving and relocation stages mean many instances in which extra fees can be applied. Be sure to check and double check that all charges and fees are mentioned in the estimate and are included in the price. Many companies will list various charges in the “fine print” section of their estimates. Carefully read all the potential added fees and be sure to check whether they apply to your move. 

Comparing Moving Prices the Right Way

Before comparing prices you should compare reputations. Getting a fantastic price from an ill-reputable company will normally result in that “great price” doubling and even tripling on the day of the move. A simple solution is to check the reputation of moving companies before actually calling to receive an estimate. This will save you much valuable time and potential heartache.

    The quote process was very thorough and transparent. Alpha followed up to see if we had any questions prior to booking as well as called to confirm the … More moving date and time prior to the move. They showed up on time, were extremely careful and wrapped the furniture very well. The movers were hardworking - it was a long, hot day but they were pleasant throughout. Would highly recommend.

    Alpha Moving & Storage did a great job helping me move. Very professional and easy to work with. Detailed estimate let me know what to expect for … More pricing. They worked with my Building Management company to get all the details about the move ironed out so I didn't have to worry. The movers were fast, friendly and very careful with my things. Alpha Moving was the best choice for my move. I would definitely use them again!

    We spoke to several moving companies but Alpha was the only one who could confirm our highly desirable end of month date on short notice. They delivered … More an accurate flat rate and everything went smoothly on our move day. Our 4 person crew was personable, professional and very hard working and I will highly recommend this company in the future.
