If you are moving in or out of New Jersey this new Alpha Moving and Storage article will help you in finding cost-effective movers. Carefully considering the reputation of potential relocation services and comparing the moving estimates the right way will ensure a stress-free and affordable move.

Considering the Reputation of Various Moving Service Providers

Our recommendation is not to get estimates from movers before checking their reputation. A great estimate is worthless if it comes from a disreputable company. We suggest that you compile a list of about five movers and compare their reputations. Be sure to check with the Better Business Bureau and to verify license numbers. Focus on the three best reputed service providers and them contact them to receive an estimate.

Comparing Moving Estimates the Right Way

First of all, ask each mover to send a representative to provide you with their moving price in writing. Once you have received the estimate, check with the relocation consultant what the basic charge unit is. In other words, in order to compare the estimates you need to understand how they were calculated and how they might be affected by possible fluctuations.

Selecting the Right NJ Mover for your Relocation Needs

Now you have three written estimates from three reputable moving companies. When coming to make your selection, you should compare not only the bottom line price, but also the basic charge unit, the possible additional fees and each mover’s location. Give preference to local companies located in your immediate area. Such companies will be better suited to handle your specific relocation needs.

    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!
