If you are a JC resident, receiving an estimate from a local Jersey City moving company is always your best bet. But how do you make sure the company you are dealing with is a genuine local relocation service? Read on.
Locating a Local Jersey City Mover
On the surface, a simple Google search for a “Jersey City Moving Company” should be enough. But in actuality, many companies from all over NJ and even outside the state will appear in such a search result. This is why, if you are interested in a genuinely local relocation service provider, you need to delve deeper and look for each company’s actual physical address.
Comparing the Best Possible Rates
Comparing the rates may prove more difficult than it sounds. The natural tendency is to compare the bottom-line prices, yet this may be misleading. Price fluctuations are very common in the moving industry because people do not check the basic charge units the companies are offering. Also, many people tend to avoid getting an on-site estimate in their homes and settle for a phone estimate. If you want an accurate price, make sure you know what the basic charge unit is and have an estimator provide you with a written estimate following a physical, visual inspection.
Price and Reputation
Last, but not least, check and double check your Jersey City moving company’s reputation. If a company has complaints and violations, it probably doesn’t matter how attractive its price offer is. In all probability, it is merely intended to lure you into booking your move and will considerably increase on moving day.
