How do you find a quality long distance moving service provider? All movers claim to be reputable and inexpensive, should you simply take their word for it? This new Alpha Moving and Storage article will show you what questions you should be asking in order to find a reputable and experienced moving and relocation service provider.

Seeking a Quality Mover

Where should you look for your quality long distance mover? Google seems like the first and most obvious choice, but it is not always the best one. Try to seek out some good old fashioned referrals from friends, neighbors and family. Try to reach out for companies that are located in your city and whose offices and local headquarters you could visit.

Learning more about your Mover’s Reputation

If you are searching for long distance movers via Google, remember that the information you see online is not always accurate. It is your responsibility to double check the validity of the information you see online. Make sure the company location is valid and check its reputation with the Better Business Bureau.

Receiving an Accurate Estimate

After gathering about three to five estimates, call each long distance moving company and ask for a representative to visit your house and provide you with an on-location written estimate. A visual inspection of your goods will nearly always be more accurate. The estimator will be able to take a look at your furniture and assess packing needs and other specifics of the relocation. The estimator will also be able to consider parking and access issues and all other related practical moving issues.

    I completed a move last month with Alpha Movers, and was super pleased with their service. I've moved a lot in the past 6-7 years, and have used a … More handful of different moving companies, and this was for sure the easiest / smoothest move of all of them. The crew showed up and finished right on time, and were very professional and careful with my things (perhaps even more so than I would've been myself!). Their office staff was also very professional and responsive. I hope I don't have to move again soon, but in any case, I would absolutely use Alpha Movers again.

    I had a great experience with Alpha Moving & Storage!
    When I initially contacted, Marc was responsive and helped get an on-site estimate set up. Andrew
    … More came out and took inventory of all my moving items to provide an estimate, so there would be no hidden costs. He was professional, thorough and gave great peace of mind.
    Day of the move, the movers showed up on time and ready to go. They were professional and very efficient taking stock of everything and getting the move underway. The entire 1 bedroom apartment was moved out and moved in within 3.5 hours door-to-door, even with the rainy conditions.
    The four movers worked super efficiently together and had a great system in place. They were professional and detailed making sure everything was placed in the desired location in the new space. Having the estimate done in advance was also very helpful as the only difference in price was to account for tax. It was nice to have no big surprises with moving costs and keep within budget.
    Alpha was recommended to me by my realtor and I would also highly recommend using them for your next move!

    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!
