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.

    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.
