Because of the complexities involved, it is essential that you use reputable movers for your long-distance relocation. But how can you tell a reputable long distance moving company from a dishonest one? This Alpha Moving and Storage blog post will offer you some simple answers and advice. 

Search Terms to Help you Find a Reputable Long Distance Mover 

First of all, when searching the internet for a long-distance moving company, avoid using general search terms such as “moving company” or “long-distance moving company.” Such searches will offer you hundreds of irrelevant results showcasing movers that aren’t in your area, brokers and other related service providers you want to avoid. Instead, search for “Long distance movers in Hoboken”, for example, if you live in Hoboken. Such exact searches will allow you to directly contact a mover in your area. 

Sorting Out Your Search Results 

Now that you’ve found a local mover, check its reputation by using the Better Business Bureau’s website. Also, ask the mover to provide you with its physical address and all the relevant license numbers. 

Preparing a Movers List and Getting an Estimate 

Your mover’s list should contain about three-to-five local and reputable relocation service providers. The next stage is to call each of them and for a representative to come to your house and give you an on-location estimate. On-site estimates are known to be much more accurate. Also, an on-location estimate will offer you a direct communication channel with your mover. Your relocation consultant should accompany you throughout the stages of the move, from A to Z.

    I completed a move last month with Alpha Movers, and was super pleased with their service. I've moved a lot in the past 6-7 years, and have used a … More handful of different moving companies, and this was for sure the easiest / smoothest move of all of them. The crew showed up and finished right on time, and were very professional and careful with my things (perhaps even more so than I would've been myself!). Their office staff was also very professional and responsive. I hope I don't have to move again soon, but in any case, I would absolutely use Alpha Movers again.

    I had a great experience with Alpha Moving & Storage!
    When I initially contacted, Marc was responsive and helped get an on-site estimate set up. Andrew
    … More came out and took inventory of all my moving items to provide an estimate, so there would be no hidden costs. He was professional, thorough and gave great peace of mind.
    Day of the move, the movers showed up on time and ready to go. They were professional and very efficient taking stock of everything and getting the move underway. The entire 1 bedroom apartment was moved out and moved in within 3.5 hours door-to-door, even with the rainy conditions.
    The four movers worked super efficiently together and had a great system in place. They were professional and detailed making sure everything was placed in the desired location in the new space. Having the estimate done in advance was also very helpful as the only difference in price was to account for tax. It was nice to have no big surprises with moving costs and keep within budget.
    Alpha was recommended to me by my realtor and I would also highly recommend using them for your next move!

    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!
