    During a difficult week with unplanned events, I had to change the date of my move last minute. Alpha was extremely accommodating & was able to reschedule … More for another day that week. Everyone from the booking team to the movers were fantastic! They truly made me feel at ease at a time that could’ve been super stressful. The team packed and handled my belongings so efficiently and with great care! If you are looking to move, do not bother calling another company.. Alpha is the only choice!

    Excellent experience with Alpha. From my initial phone call with Marc, to the assessment with Andrew, to packing and moving day, everything was top notch! … More
    This is my first time having a premium moving service pack for me so I was astounded by how thorough, fast and organized the process was.
    The move itself was seamless. Not a scratch on anything. They were a professional, friendly and hardworking team. They were prompt and skilled so I knew we were in good hands.
    I highly recommend Alpha for even the most discerning customers.

    I researched many moving companies and felt the most comfortable and at ease with Alpha Moving. From the free virtual estimate to the completion of moving … More day, I knew my family’s move was in great hands. The movers were punctual, polite, efficient, and thorough. They made our move practically effortless. Every member of the team was kind, professional, and personable. Andrew and his team were phenomenal. Care was taken with all of the items, houses, doors, etc. I would highly recommend Alpha to anyone looking for a quality moving company.
