Selecting a reputable and affordable relocation company is important for every type of move. It is even more essential for long distance moving. The expenses involved, the tension, deliveries across far distances, these all require the skillful hand of a great moving company. In this new Alpha Moving and Storage blog post, we offer some explanations about locating the best and most suitable movers for your long distance relocation. 

Making Sure You Are Dealing with a Reputable Company

Don’t waste your time getting an estimate from a moving company before checking its reputation. Before your initial call, you should check with the Better Business Bureau, look into the moving company’s physical location and make sure all licensing information is available to you.

Receiving the Best Possible Estimate  

Prepare your inventory in advance. This will make the initial estimate process much easier. If you can, prepare an additional list detailing all your packing needs. Most movers will be able to give you an initial idea of the costs so you could know whether or not you want to continue to the next stage and ask for a company representative to come to your house and provide you a more accurate written estimate.

The Importance of References and On-Site Estimates

It is highly recommended to have a moving company representative come to your house and provide you with a written estimate. The estimator will be able to look at your goods, offer you accurate prices for moving and packing and assess any parking or access difficulties.

Ask the moving company to provide you with references before making your final choice. A reputable company should always have relevant references to offer potential customers such as yourself.

    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.
