Moving can get stressful and confusing, which is why we have assembled some of the best tips and advice our Alpha Moving and Storage dispatch and sales professionals had to offer. Read on for advice from some of the finest professionals in the industry.  

Money-Saving Tips 

Most of our professionals had these two tips to offer customers who wanted to lower the costs of their move: do as much of the packing as possible on your own and start tour moving preparations early. 

Ask your relocation service provider to deliver boxes to your house. Packing items such as books, files and other non-breakables on your own, can significantly reduce your packing costs. 

Starting early will allow you to do some of the packing on your own and get rid of excess inventory to further reduce your moving costs. 

Time Saving Tips 

To save time, try and disassemble some of the items, such as tables with removable legs and so on. Place boxes that you had packed on your own in one place, preferably as close to the house entrance as possible. Finally, try and reserve a nearby parking spot for the moving truck to make the pick up quicker and easier. 

Tips for Selecting your Moving Service Provider 

Never take the mover’s word for it. It is your responsibility to check each moving service provider’s reputation. Check the validity of license numbers. Go to the Better Business Bureau’s website and make sure the mover is an active member. Also, check if the mover has been successfully able to resolve past complaints.

    I completed a move last month with Alpha Movers, and was super pleased with their service. I've moved a lot in the past 6-7 years, and have used a … More handful of different moving companies, and this was for sure the easiest / smoothest move of all of them. The crew showed up and finished right on time, and were very professional and careful with my things (perhaps even more so than I would've been myself!). Their office staff was also very professional and responsive. I hope I don't have to move again soon, but in any case, I would absolutely use Alpha Movers again.

    I had a great experience with Alpha Moving & Storage!
    When I initially contacted, Marc was responsive and helped get an on-site estimate set up. Andrew
    … More came out and took inventory of all my moving items to provide an estimate, so there would be no hidden costs. He was professional, thorough and gave great peace of mind.
    Day of the move, the movers showed up on time and ready to go. They were professional and very efficient taking stock of everything and getting the move underway. The entire 1 bedroom apartment was moved out and moved in within 3.5 hours door-to-door, even with the rainy conditions.
    The four movers worked super efficiently together and had a great system in place. They were professional and detailed making sure everything was placed in the desired location in the new space. Having the estimate done in advance was also very helpful as the only difference in price was to account for tax. It was nice to have no big surprises with moving costs and keep within budget.
    Alpha was recommended to me by my realtor and I would also highly recommend using them for your next move!

    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!
