We’ve all heard horror stories about moving prices being inflated on the day of the move. Receiving an accurate estimate is something every moving customer is obviously interested in. But how can you make sure your quote will remain the same on the moving date? This is the question this new Alpha Moving and Storage article attempts to answer. 

Understanding Your Moving Quotes From Local New Jersey Movers

Many people make the mistake of looking only at the bottom line price without checking the basic charge units, reading the fine print or comparing the extra fees. But the first step, even before comparing the rates, should be to compare the reputation and experience of the moving companies you are considering. Ask for license numbers, references and Better Business Bureau details.

Comparing Your Moving Quotes From Local New Jersey Movers

Once you’ve determined the reputation of the moving companies you are considering, it is time to receive and compare the moving quotes. Ask up to four relocation companies to send an agent to your house and provide you with a written quote. Show the on-site estimator all the items you are considering moving. Also, talk about your packing needs and ask the estimator to approximate the number of boxes to be packed in each room.

Selecting the Best Moving Quote From New Jersey Movers

Now you are ready to make your selection. Take a look at all the written estimates you have gathered. Compare the charge units per pound or per cubic foot as well as the charges for packing and packing materials. In order for the price to remain the same on the day of the move, be sure to call your relocation consultant and report any inventory changes, the purchase of new furniture and changes with your packing plans.

    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.
