Long distance is the most complex, and possibly expensive type of relocation. Understanding how the industry works and how long distance moving is conducted will help you in reducing your relocation costs and in making the right choices. This new Alpha Moving and Storage article provides several bits of advice that will help you in making a more educated, cost-effective moving choice.

Things to Consider Before Beginning your Online Search

Before beginning your online search, you should be aware that many of the results will actually represent index websites – services that forward your information to various movers – or companies that are not actually located in your area. Check each search result and verify addresses and licensing information in order to avoid confusion.

Learning More about Long Distance Moving

Long distance moving is conducted according to weight or space. In other words, the mover will weigh the goods – by taking the truck to a weight station before and after it is loaded – or measure the actual space your goods will take on the truck. Because weight and space are crucial when it comes to long distance moving prices, we recommend that you trim down your inventory by selling or donating some of the furniture.

Preparing for Storage and Checking your Mover’s Facilities

Moving into a storage facility for a long distance move will require careful packing. All your goods will need to be fully packed and protected. Make sure that your mover has an actual storage facility at its headquarters. We recommend that you pay a visit to the storage facility to make sure it is suitable for your moving needs. Alpha Moving and Storage owns and operates its storage facility in Jersey City, New Jersey.

    Had a great experience working with Alpha. The moving crew was efficient and professional, handling everything with care. Reasonable prices and clear communication … More from start to finish on the process and cost. The crew easily disassembled and reassembled furniture, even removing and reinstalling a door to get in some bulkier items. Would definitely recommend Alpha to anyone moving in the future.

    We hired Alpha Moving and Storage for our recent move, and everything went very well. Preparatory work (scheduling, estimates) went very smoothly, and all … More my questions were answered quickly. Moving day was quick and efficient. The movers took lots of care with our belongings, and asked plenty of questions to make sure that everything was placed where we wanted it. Prices very reasonable. A+ service.
