Tips for Moving Long Distance

It is a well-known fact that long-distance moving is an often-complex process. Selecting a reputable moving company and familiarizing yourself with long-distance moving terms will help in lowering your relocation costs and in reducing stress levels. This Alpha Moving and Storage article concentrates on some of the most important tips and advice our relocation experts have to offer. 

Beginning your Moving Preparations 

Most experts will tell you to start preparing for your move at least six weeks in advance. Don’t wait for the very last moment to contact movers. Reputable service providers are likely to be booked solid at least two weeks in advance. 

For lowering your relocation costs, we highly advise that you pack non-breakables, such as books and files, on your own. You can contact your Alpha Moving and storage representative to check for box delivery options and specials. 

Searching for Moving Companies 

You don’t have to search for your movers online. Sometimes, good old-fashioned referrals are the best way to go. Ask your family, friends, and neighbors if they can recommend a moving service provider. 

If you are searching online, be sure to search for local moving service providers in your area and to verify each and every mover’s reputation. 

Understanding how Long Distance Moving Works

Long-distance moving is charged either by weight or space, as customers need to pay for the relative part of the delivery trailer their shipment will occupy. We recommend that you call our Alpha Moving and Storage sales and service center for an in-depth explanation regarding long-distance basic charge units, additional costs, and storage options.

    Alpha Moving did a wonderful job helping us move into our new apartment! They quickly got multiple large pieces of furniture out of a suburban house and … More into a 4 story walk-up apartment in the city. The movers themselves were very gracious and went out of their way to help us set the furniture up and make sure everything fit into our space. Their prices and quality were unbeatable and they were very timely, communicative and prompt the day of. I would highly recommend them and will be using them again in the future!

    The Alpha team was amazing. From proposal, to scheduling, to the actual move day…the team delivered on everything promised in a courteous and professional … More manner. My movers took the time to protect floors and door jambs during the move. They carefully wrapped items to ensure safe transport. They were kind enough to handle some reshuffling once we got to the destination. It was a pleasure working with the team and I would highly recommend their services.

    Alpha Moving is the best moving company I have ever dealt with and we have moved quit a bit. They arrive on time, move very quickly and efficiently. … More From the office staff to the moving crew they are all very professional and polite. Their pricing is right on compared to other quotes we received. This is the second time we have hired them within 6 years and we will definitely use them again for our next move.
