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.

    My husband and I have used Alpha for two moves—once from Manhattan to Jersey City and more recently from Jersey City to the Jersey Shore.
    The first move
    … More was during Covid, but Alpha was super diligent and professional. The second move was on an incredibly hot and humid day, and our movers still worked so hard and fast.
    For our second move, we also had to put our items in storage for a few weeks. Alpha made this super easy and had a thorough system for taking inventory of all our furniture and boxes.
    I can't say enough about how great Alpha is. We would use them again and recommend them to anyone. Their office employees are very responsive and helpful, and the movers are extremely skilled and professional.
    I've also found their prices to be much more reasonable than other companies in the area.
