People normally, often mistakenly, assume that they can either get quality moving services for very high prices or poor-quality services for an affordable price.
This new Alpha Moving and Storage article will demonstrate that this is not the case.
The answer is a definite yes. In order to get quality services for an affordable price, you need to make sure that the company is large enough and has a local headquarters. Local companies will be able to pick up and handle your goods for less. Large companies will be able to combine long-distance shipments and easily send their available trucks for local moves. Selecting the right company will often lead to reduced prices and better service.
You can do that by doing two things. First of all, make sure that the company you are dealing with is reputable by checking its Better Business Bureau and licensing information. Don’t settle for an estimate over the phone; ask for an on-site estimator to come to your house and provide you with a price in writing.
There are several things that you can do. Start your search for moving companies early, especially if you are moving during the busy summer months. This will help you to avoid last-minute higher rates. Try to do some of the packings on your own, mainly for books, files, and other non-breakable items. If you require storage, prefer the services of companies that offer one month of free storage in their local facilities.
