Moving can turn into a highly stressful experience if you end up selecting the wrong relocation company. This new and informative Alpha Moving and Storage blog post will provide you with some essential tips for selecting the right moving and relocation service provider.

Saving Money by Preparing Early

The first and important tip we can offer you has to do with starting your preparations early. Early, especially for long distance relocations, means at least five to seven weeks before your actual moving pickup date. Starting your preparations early will help you with saving money for packing. Ask your moving and relocation company to provide you with packing materials in advance. These can be delivered to your door several weeks before your pickup date. Packing books, files and other non-breakables can significantly help you in reducing the moving costs.

Communicating with your Relocation Company

Update your moving and relocation company about any inventory change. Especially if a long distance move is involved, even a single piece of furniture, a sofa or a refrigerator, for example, could influence the price of the move. Call your relocation consultant and update him or her about any and every inventory fluctuations.

Selecting your Relocation Company

Your final selection should be done only following an in-depth research in which you will compare prices, reputations and locations. Be thorough and don’t hesitate to call your relocation consultant to ask questions. Ask for the companies to send an estimator to your house and provide you an on-location written estimate. Such estimates will nearly always be more accurate.

    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!
