How to Find Reliable Jersey City Movers

Over 42 million people move in the U.S. every year. That’s an amazing 1 in 4 adults. A person will make over 7 moves in their lifetime. Research has shown that relocation ranks third as the most stressful event in a person’s life. Even though we may be excited about the move, there can be mixed emotions about leaving behind a familiar neighborhood, close friends and fond memories. On top of all this we don’t want to have the added stress of wondering if the Jersey City moving company is going to handle our possessions with care.

The entire process will be a lot easier if you can find a reliable Jersey City moving company, though this might not always be as easy as it seems. It’s not just a matter of picking up the phone book and searching under “moving companies”. To begin with there are a lot of different types of moving companies from those that limit their services to local moves to those that will help you relocate across the country or even to another country. So the type of move you are planning and even what you need to move will determine the type of Jersey City moving company you’ll need to hire.

A Jersey City moving company can offer you a wide range of services on top of simply moving your furniture and other belongings. They can rent or sell you sturdy packing boxes, actually do the packing for you, arrange for storage, and unpack everything for you once it reaches its destination. Of course these services will cost extra but it’s nice to know they’re available if you need them.

The rates from one Jersey City moving company to another can vary quite a bit, leaving you with some very different quotes for your move. You may hesitate to go with the lowest bid, worried about the quality of the service and safety of your possessions.

Where to Look for Reputable Jersey City Movers

Start by simply asking people you know. Almost everyone has moved at least once in their lifetime, so ask your family, friends or co-workers if they can recommend a good Jersey City moving company. Talk to the real estate agent that helped with the sale or purchase of your home. A real estate agent can be a good source of information because they often know about the experiences of their past clients. Look for moving vehicles that are working in your city if you're planning a local move. You know there’s a reason why they’re so busy if you repeatedly see the trucks and vans of a specific Jersey City moving company.

Check the internet. A lot of moving companies maintain a website listing their services, how long they’ve been in business, the areas they cover as well as an online estimator page to help you get an initial idea of how much the move will cost you. You can find their contact information including an email address incase you have any questions you want to ask before talking with them further. The internet is also a good way to do a background check before calling any Jersey City moving company.

Getting a Quote from the Jersey City Movers

Once you have your list of moving companies in hand, contact the Better Business Bureau to find out if any of the companies have had any complaints filed against them. Considering the volume of business a Jersey City moving company handles it’s not unusual for a company to have a few complaints, but the important thing is to find out exactly what the complaints were and if they were taken care of to the customer’s satisfaction.
Before you start talking with any Jersey City moving company, you should make a list of how many rooms to be moved, if you have any unusually large, bulky or odd shaped items and don’t forget about the garage, and patio furniture. It’s not necessary to be exact but it will help give the Jersey City moving company some idea of what you’ll need.

The Jersey City Moving Company: Making Your Choice

You may find that comparing quotes can be a bit confusing. You’ll find that pricing can be very different as can available services and the methods that each company uses to arrive at their estimate. You’ll find that while one Jersey City moving company may charge by the load, another may charge by the hour or even by the room.

It's important that you get all your Jersey City moving company quotes in writing and to make sure that you completely understand how they are calculated. Don’t forget to read the fine print. You need to know what your options are should there be any damages. Some companies won't pay for damages if you packed your belongings yourself unless it can be proved that the damage was a direct cause of their mishandling.

After you’ve talked with every prospective Jersey City moving company on your list and taken time to consider their quotes, you can make an informed decision as to which Jersey City moving company you trust to move your belongings. It’s true that moving can be an emotional and stressful time. So the last thing you need to deal with is incompetent movers or damaged possessions. Whether you’re moving down the block or across the country, you need to find a reliable Jersey City moving company that you know you can trust.

Great American Van Lines Testimonials

Read What Our Customers Are Saying:

Very reliable company

For the last few days I have been thinking to share my positive moving experience with others. Last week I hired Great American Van Lines. I was moving to Mississippi to be with my fiancé. I always think moving from one place to another is nothing but hazard. So I wanted to make it safe under any circumstance. I talked with several movers and at last Great American Van Lines was my final choice due to their price rate and politely representation. Later on when I saw their work, my stress level went way down. They were very meticulous in packing my every house hold items. Upon delivery all of my items arrived in one piece. Very reliable company, everyone can hire them.

Great Job Great American Van Lines, NJ to IL

I recently used Great American Van Lines for a long distance move. After receiving quotes from four movers, I selected Great American Van Lines based on my interaction with the salesperson and reading other reviews. Steve and Jose were right on time, did a very careful job of packing and loading our belongings, and were cheerful and upbeat throughout the day. The delivery took place just a few days later according to our arrival and availability one we reached our destination. The move went very smoothly, I was pleased with their work, and would certainly use Great American Van Lines.

Great Job!!!

Great American Van Lines helped us relocate from New York to Virginia. We had our price from the start and since it was suitable for us we hired them to help us move. In 5 days the vans of the company were full with our belongings and then delivered to our new home.

Thank You For A Great Move

I used Great American Van Lines for my move from MD to CA. I got a number of quotes from different companies. Great American Van Lines appeared by far the most suitable with my budget. The sales manager was extremely helpful and cooperative to speak with. Their crews were punctual, extremely pleasant and skilled. The final price for the service provided was excellent, no hidden charge at all. I must confess that I have never worked with such honest guys like they are. I strongly recommend them for a great move, no matter if its long or short distance.

I Highly Recommend Great American Van Lines

I highly recommend Great American Van Lines. I bought some furniture from a friend of mine who was moving to Ohio so I hired Great American Van Lines to move it from her apartment to my house. My friend has moved every few years, so she is experienced with movers. She said they were on time and that they were hustling to get the furniture packed and loaded. She saw that they were very thorough and that they knew what they were doing. They arrived at my house and were polite, courteous, and efficient in getting the furniture moved into my house. They even moved some existing furniture for me to make room for the new furniture. Everything arrived in perfect condition. I highly recommend Great American Van Lines.

Thank You Great American Van Lines

We hired Great American Van Lines for our move from Connecticut to Houston, TX. This was our first long distance move and we were very nervous about the entire process after hearing so many bad things about scam companies. Luckily for us, Great American Van Lines were ready to prove to us that not all movers are out to rip you off!!!! Our relocation consultant, Otis, was very thorough during the estimate process and made sure to explain to us the full process of the move and services that were available to us. Otis provided us with a guaranteed price in writing for our move and was quick to offer suggestions on how to correctly prepare for the pickup date. The pickup went smoothly, and our things were delivered well within the window of dates we were given. The delivery crew not only brought our items into the home but placed them in the correct rooms and even set up our beds! We couldn’t have asked for an easier move process. Thank you guys!

So Appreciative Of The Help

So appreciative of the help these guys provided me in moving my belongings from my apartment. Normally I would have done it myself as I have in the past but just with work and having a child now it's tough to muster the energy. Heard all the stories about these companies and ripping you off but definitely was not the case here. These guys stuck to what they promised and performed very well. Guys were quick all had a company uniform and were very professional. Thank You Great American Van Lines for your help and I will definitely recommend you to my friends or family if they wind up moving. Thanks.
