The best way of ensuring a stress-free moving experience is to receive an on-site estimate from a quality local company. This new Alpha Moving and Storage article describes how to approach local movers in Jersey City and receive an on-location estimate from them.

The Advantages of Receiving an On-Site Estimate From a Local Mover

An on-site estimate involves the sending of a relocation company representative to your house. The representative will take a look at your furniture and other belongings and will provide you with a written estimate. He or she will also be able to estimate your packing needs and the number of boxes to be packed in each room. On-site estimates are much more accurate and, when provided by a reputable company and barring any inventory changes, will remain the same on the day of the move. 

Requesting an On-Site Estimate for a New Jersey Mover

You should prepare a list of about three-four local Jersey City moving companies. Call each of the companies and ask for an agent to come to your house and provide you with a written estimate. Reputable companies employ on-location estimators and should have no problem complying with your request. 

Making the Best Out Of Your On-Site Estimate

In order for the on-site estimate to be an accurate one, be sure to show your estimator all the items to be moved. Describe in detail all the packing requirements. Include items you are not yet sure whether you will be moving. If you have any access or parking difficulties, be sure to mention these to the estimator. If you purchase new furniture or have any other inventory or packing changes, be sure to call your estimator and provide him or her with an update.

    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.
