The internet is full of luring promises for low moving prices. But what about all the stories about low prices, received from ill-reputable movers, that ended up doubling and tripling at the day of the move? Is it possible to lower your moving costs with movers you can actually trust? We believe so. And this is what this new Alpha Moving and Storage blog article explores.

Defining Your Moving Needs

In order to select the right reputable and inexpensive relocation company, you need to first define your own moving needs. It is best to decide in advance whether or not you will be requiring packing services, storage services and so on. This will allow you to focus your search on movers that specialize in providing the services you require.

Locating a Trustworthy Relocation Service Provider

Locating your mover should be done not only on the internet. We strongly believe that old-fashioned recommendations are worth their weight in gold. Ask your NJ friends and relatives for recommendations.

References and On-Site Estimates

Ask the moving and relocation services you are considering for references. Any veteran moving service provider should have plenty of references to provide you with. Perhaps the most important way of ensuring that a bargain-priced estimate will not change at the day of the move is receiving an on-location estimate. The relocation consultant should take a look at all your items, assess the number of boxes to be packed, as well as packing and packing materials to be used. If you are dealing with a reputable company, you should end up with a solid written estimate that will stay the same on the day of the move.

    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!
