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.
