Finding the best possible Jersey City, NJ relocation company for your move is not as easy as it sounds. With dozens of movers competing for each move and every Google search yielding hundreds of results, how can you know which one to choose? This Alpha Moving and Storage article offers some concise answers to the above question.

Searching for New Jersey Based Movers

The first thing to do is to make sure the companies you are dealing with are actually located in Jersey City. Many companies advertise their services in various cities, some of them located dozens of miles away. Other companies even use a bogus local address to lure customers into selecting them. So be sure to check and double check the physical address of each company you are dealing with.

Local and Long Distance Service Providers

Not all companies are equipped to perform long distance moving. Some companies specialize only in local moving, which is technically easier. Long distance moving requires experience, know-how and equipment. Be sure to check that the mover you are dealing with has plenty of experience in conducting long distance moving.

Making an Educated Decision

You should get about three to five estimates from local Jersey City companies that have a good reputation, can offer you references and have enough experience conducting your particular type of relocation. Before making a decision, you will need to sit down and compare all basic charge units. Don’t forget to look at the fine print and check for additional and hidden fees. Make sure that you understand all the fees for packing and packing materials.

    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!
