Locating the best moving companies New Jersey has to offer isn’t necessarily an easy task. A simple internet search for “NJ mover” will yield dozens of results. But some of the companies will not be local at all, while others will be disreputable or unlicensed. So how can you tell the difference and select the right relocation service? Simply read on to get the answer.

Creating a List of Six Quality NJ Relocation Service Providers

The first thing to do is to make sure you are dealing with legitimate, reputable and local moving service providers. Ask each mover for its physical address and all relevant license numbers. Then it is your responsibility to check with the proper authorities and the Better Business Bureau that all the information is genuine and that there are no standing complaints against the company. After conducting this initial research, you should create a list of three-to-five high-quality movers to get estimates from.

Receiving On-Location Estimates from NJ Movers

Another way of ensuring a solid estimate is requesting the mover to send a representative to your house and provide you with a written estimate. When provided by a reputable company, such estimates are guaranteed to remain the same on the day of the move.

Things to Consider Before Selecting a NJ Mover

Before making your final selection, take a look not only at the bottom-line price, but also at the basic charge unit each company is offering you. Ask your moving and storage relocation consultant to provide you with the rate per pound or cubic foot for long distance moving, and the rate per hour for local moving.

    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!
