If you are about to perform a local or a long distance move, sorting out and selecting moving and storage service providers may seem like a daunting, often impossible task. Each internet search yields hundreds of results, making it difficult to sort out the good from the bad. This Alpha Moving and Storage article aims to guide you through the process of choosing your moving and storage service providers.

Checking Moving Reputations

Once you begin to check the reputations of movers, you will probably see that long list of moving companies significantly dwindle. Once you focus on movers with an impeccable reputation, you will probably end up with between three to five reputable companies from which you will need to choose.

Asking the Right Moving Questions

Once you have checked the reputation, it is time to ask the right questions and make the correct comparisons. Comparing the rates is easy once you understand the charging unit used by the movers to calculate the price. This is either a rate per pound or a rate per cubic foot. After comparing charges for packing and packing materials you are ready to make your selection.

Making the Right Moving Company Choice

The company you end up selecting should be local, have a good reputation, provide you with a written, on-location estimate and be clear and communicative regarding its pricing. Your relocation consultant should provide you with all the relevant information and answer your every question.


Alpha Moving and Storage will be delighted to answer your every question. Our relocation consultants are always at your disposal and will be glad to provide you with more detailed information about sorting out and selecting moving and storage service providers.

    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.
