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.

    Had a great experience working with Alpha. The moving crew was efficient and professional, handling everything with care. Reasonable prices and clear communication … More from start to finish on the process and cost. The crew easily disassembled and reassembled furniture, even removing and reinstalling a door to get in some bulkier items. Would definitely recommend Alpha to anyone moving in the future.

    We hired Alpha Moving and Storage for our recent move, and everything went very well. Preparatory work (scheduling, estimates) went very smoothly, and all … More my questions were answered quickly. Moving day was quick and efficient. The movers took lots of care with our belongings, and asked plenty of questions to make sure that everything was placed where we wanted it. Prices very reasonable. A+ service.
