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.

    We’ve moved a few times recently and had bad experiences. The folks at Alpha were responsive, courteous, and professional. They showed up to our home before … More the move to walk through and make sure we both understood the services provided and to give a realistic quote. They came in at budget and are comparable to other companies we reached out to. The crew worked with us and asked questions as the day went along and—believe it or not—nothing was broken. We’re hoping to stay put for a long time in our new home, but if we have to move again, we’ll be giving them a call.

    I've used Alpha for 4 recent moves. I keep coming back to them because they are professional, timely and courteous. They go out of their way to accommodate … More my requests. I can't imagine using a different company.

    Alpha and their crew were amazing! Don’t waste your time calling the others movers listed on Hoboken Girl! Just call Alpha! Alpha was recommended to my … More by a friend who has used them multiple times. Let’s be honest, moving sucks. Alpha took the stress out of it and showed up exactly on time. I had to move my apartment into storage and on short notice. All the other movers said they were not available or quoted me over $3k. Alpha provided me a full pack and partial pack option and explained it was an estimate and I would be billed based on time and items. Well, I ended up doing a majority of the packing myself and they only charged for time and items which was significantly less than the original estimate. They also managed to get my whole apartment into a 10x10 storage unit. I was amazed!
