Long distance moving and relocation can get expensive. Trying to cut down on the moving costs is naturally a concern for almost all long distance moving customers. In this new Alpha Moving and Storage blog post we will be presenting you with some helpful money-saving tips for long distance relocations. Should you have any questions after reading this article, be sure to give our Alpha Moving and Storage sales and information center a call.

Contacting Your Long Distance Relocation Mover

Especially if you are moving during the busy summer months, it is crucial that you contact your mover early and reserve a moving date. Last minute summer moves tend to get more expensive, and some long distance moving companies will be booked several weeks in advance. Contacting your mover early will also enable you to do some of the packing on your own, thus further-reducing your long distance relocation price.

Receiving an Estimate from your Long Distance Relocation Mover

The best and most accurate way of receiving a long distance estimate is to have the company send you an on-site estimator to provide you with a written estimate. A visual inspection is absolutely essential for larger long distance relocations.

Comparing Long Distance Relocation Estimates

When making your final decision you will need to compare the three to five estimates you have collected. Rather than comparing the final, bottom-line price, we recommend that you compare the basic charge units – the rate per pound or per cubic feet that each company is offering you. Such a comparison needs to be accompanied with a thorough knowledge of the possible added fees, such as charges for packing and packing materials, or stairs and elevator fees.

    Alpha Moving did a wonderful job helping us move into our new apartment! They quickly got multiple large pieces of furniture out of a suburban house and … More into a 4 story walk-up apartment in the city. The movers themselves were very gracious and went out of their way to help us set the furniture up and make sure everything fit into our space. Their prices and quality were unbeatable and they were very timely, communicative and prompt the day of. I would highly recommend them and will be using them again in the future!

    The Alpha team was amazing. From proposal, to scheduling, to the actual move day…the team delivered on everything promised in a courteous and professional … More manner. My movers took the time to protect floors and door jambs during the move. They carefully wrapped items to ensure safe transport. They were kind enough to handle some reshuffling once we got to the destination. It was a pleasure working with the team and I would highly recommend their services.

    Alpha Moving is the best moving company I have ever dealt with and we have moved quit a bit. They arrive on time, move very quickly and efficiently. … More From the office staff to the moving crew they are all very professional and polite. Their pricing is right on compared to other quotes we received. This is the second time we have hired them within 6 years and we will definitely use them again for our next move.
