In the good old days, people used to look for moving companies in the yellow pages. Nowadays, people go online to search for their relocation company. Each basic search will offer you with dozens and dozens of results. But how can you tell the difference between legitimate movers and shady business that decided to open an internet page? This new Alpha Moving and Storage article will help you answer this question.

Doing Your Online Search for Movers the Right Way

Your initial internet search should be specific rather than general. For example, if you are searching for movers in the NJ area, type “NJ Movers” in the search box. Trying broad and general search terms such as “Moving Companies” will provide you with a large number of irrelevant results.

Selecting Movers to Receive your Initial Estimates From

Once you have conducted your initial search, it is time to select between three to five moving service providers. Check the individual websites of the most suitable results. Make sure that each of the companies has all the proper license numbers and is registered with the Better Business Bureau.

Carefully Comparing Moving Company Prices and Reputation

Because anyone can start an internet web page, comparing prices and reputation is possibly the most crucial stage. Each company should provide you with a written estimate. It is highly important to request each mover to send a representative to your house and provide you with an on-location estimate. This is especially true when you locate your potential movers via the internet. Additionally, you can coordinate a visit to the company’s main offices. Ask your estimator to be present and show you the trucks, facilities and storage area.

    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!
