A quick internet search for New Jersey Local Movers will yield dozens and dozens of results. Virtually all the options for movers that you will see on the results will promise you great rates and a great service. But unlike the flashy and colorful slogans and promises, a lot of the companies will not be local to your area; many of them will not even be actual movers.

New Jersey Local Movers and their Importance to the Success of your Relocation

Making Sure you are dealing with an Actual Moving Company

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, one cannot stress the importance of checking license numbers enough. Sometimes, it is the only way for you as a customer to tell the difference between a broker, an index service and an actual mover. So be sure that your first step is to request license numbers and check them out to make to sure that you are dealing with a genuine service provider which has the equipment, manpower and experience to handle your move.

Making sure you are dealing with New Jersey Local Movers

When it comes to making sure that you are dealing with New Jersey local movers, it is not enough just to request the physical address. Some companies will provide bogus addresses, a P.O box or the address of a self storage facility just to make it seem as if they are local.

Your best bet it to consider only companies whose headquarters is in your immediate vicinity. This way, you will be able to pay them a visit and see for yourself that you are dealing with an actual and genuine company.

    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!
