Almost everyone is trying to reduce their moving and relocation costs. Sadly, many customers are tempted by low estimates given by shady movers. Such estimates end up costing much more, as the movers considerably raise the price on the moving day. So how can you still reduce your moving costs without running the risk of getting involved with the wrong company? Read on.

Why Local Jersey City Companies are Able to Offer Lower Prices  

How can local Jersey City companies offer you lower prices? If they are actually located in Jersey City, this means that sending a truck will cost them less, assuming you are moving to or from JC. Local movers will be able to easily send more movers, when necessary and provide you with timely solutions to any problem that might present itself during the loading, driving and offloading process. 

Lowering the Costs of your Move

Do some of the packing on your own. Focus on the packing of non-breakables such as books and files. You can also ask your local Jersey City mover to deliver boxes to your doorstep. This will allow you to save time and money by packing non-breakables on your own.

Additional Things you can do to Lower Moving and Storage Costs

Have an on-site estimator come to your house and provide you with a written estimate. While the estimator inspects the goods to be moved, consult with him or her about items that you can pack on your own. The on-site estimator will be able to recommend a plan of action in which you will be in charge of the packing of books, files, some of the non-breakable kitchen items and so on.

    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!
