No move is a small move 

Are you looking for a reliable, professional and trusted local mover in or around Springfield, VA? This can be a very daunting task. You probably heard stories from friends and loved ones about movers showing up late for a job, not using the appropriate protection on your floors and furniture, maybe even giving you an inaccurate cost estimate?

All this can cause extra stress, but it does not have to be that way. With G&J Moving and Storage you have found a company that provides prompt, courteous and expert service, regardless of the size of your move. Big mansion or small apartment, we treat every moving client with the same courtesy, respect and professionalism and that is not all, no matter how close your new home is, we will handle your move with the same level of care and attention.

What our local moving services offer

Your move will be handled by experienced local moving professionals, who have undergone extensive background checks. We place high value on training. As an example, before a driver can be considered to come on-board with G&J Moving and Storage, he or she must have at least three years and 100,000 miles experience in household goods moving services.

Like many families in the Washington, D.C. area, you might believe that only long distance moves require the services of a professional mover, but this simply isn’t the case. Whether you’re moving between apartments or into a four-bedroom house, the most difficult part of the experience has little to do with the drive from your old property to your new one. Packing, loading and unloading your belongings is by far the biggest headache any family faces during this process.

Our local move limitation is 31 miles radius from our home terminal in Alexandria. With that range G&J Moving and Storage offers local moving services to residents of Maryland, Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. Our experienced and courteous staff will make your move streamlined and stress-free, ensuring that all of your belongings make it to your new home in great condition.

What to consider, when selecting a local mover

Selecting a local moving company that you can trust to professionally move your valuable possessions can be difficult. This is not the time to be shy! Make sure you fully understand the services the moving company offers and the rate at which those services can be provided. It’s also wise to check your state’s moving and storage association to learn local regulations that apply to movers in your area.

Recommended questions to ask:

  • Is your moving company licensed?
  • Does your company charge by the piece or by the hour?
  • Do you have a minimum charge? How do you charge after the minimum?
  • Do you charge extra for larger items such as piano moving, large screen televisions, or any extra flights of stairs to move items on? (This is not unusual.)
  • Do you charge for the travel time from your office to my home?
  • Do you charge extra for moves in the evenings or on the weekends?

These are only a few, click below for the whole list:

    • What payment options do you offer? (Many companies require a deposit.)
    • Do you have full-time employees or do you use temps and day labor? (Be cautious of
      companies that use temps or day labor because they may not be properly insured.)
    • Are items insured during the move? (Even if a mover is bonded and insured, it doesn’t mean
      that your items are covered during the move. Some states require that a company put a
      valuation of 60¢ per pound of coverage.)
    • What kind of cancellation policy do you offer? (You should always be able to cancel or
      postpone until a few days before your move.)
    • Do you offer free on-site quotes? (For homes larger than three bedrooms, try to get an on-site
      estimate done. Be thorough in identifying all the items you need moved. Don’t forget the
      basement and the attic.)
    • Do you have any suggestions on how to make the move easier? (Movers, who care about
      customer service and making your move a positive experience, will do all they can to help
  • Do you have a contact number for the day of the move should any challenges arise?

Local moving companies near me – Springfield , Virginia!

If this is the question that strikes your mind, then we are about to help you with solving it! This firm is ready to arrange your relocation without any problems. When thinking about something like “cheap local movers near me”, it’s preferable to refer to this particular enterprise.

Shall I plan my move independently or with a moving company?

Well, that’s a hard question for those who plan their first move at all. We would like to give two variants to you, describe each of them. After this, you will be able to draw your conclusions regarding whether you should use the services of GJ MOVING or not.

Let’s imagine that we are dealing with a family who moves from Springfield to Alexandria.

  1. The customer moves independently. There is a family of Alex (he is a husband who changed his job), Olivia (a wife), and two children. They have to move because of the new Alex’s work. They waste a lot of time because everything goes just the opposite way, they could imagine it. They have no idea how to pack their stuff. Besides, when they try to find out about how much everything will cost, they see unbelievable prices. The whole process of moving is physically hard for Alex and his family. They have to do everything fast as long as there is a tight deadline regarding when he has to show up in the new place. However, they spend too much time trying to arrange everything, pack, move, and relocate their things. As a result, Alex is exhausted when he shows up at the new workplace. And we think that it’s better to start a new job rested and happy.
  2. Alex sets the goal to find some “cheap local moving companies near me”. He manages to do it and decides to call GJ MOVING. They give the guarantee that they will do everything fast enough and won’t charge too much for this. Besides, they offer the whole complex of operations like stacking, loading, transporting, delivering, and putting everything in its place in the new house. The family can easily transport all their stuff, including heavy piano, furniture, and fragile things like glassware. Nothing will be broken within the process of moving because the company’s staff knows the basics of packing such items. As a result, moving is done quickly and without any losses.

That’s why if you are to transfer furnishing and precious or brittle possessions, it’s wiser to do it with the local moving services and companies.

The cost of movers (local ones) fluctuates, but with us, you won’t waste your finances. You should just note that distance and how much you move affect the final price. If you have a kitchen set, piano, household appliances, and much more, their amount and size will influence the cost you’ll have to pay.

Some reasons for selecting GJ MOVING

“Professional local movers near me” – this is what you are looking for. GJ MOVING can be included in this category. It has quite a lot of advantages, among which there are the following:

  1. It doesn’t matter if you are an individual looking for high-quality service or the enterprise. The firm is ready to help both.
  2. They have a convenient schedule and process the requests made on their website and by the phone very quickly.
  3. GJ MOVING is a reliable and professional company you can trust. This is confirmed by the customers’ reviews.
  4. They work with each client individually (which cannot be told about all local movers in Northern VA and other states) and ready to provide him with the whole complex of services connected with moving.
  5. It’s easy to find the description of any service you need on their website. Besides, you won’t spend too much time on it (the cost is determined by two important factors which are distance and the amount of freight. The price will grow if you need to move far and take much stuff with you).
  6. They have a huge experience of work compared with other local (short-distance) movers.
  7. The price of their services is relatively small.

Well, as you can see, there are plenty of advantages. It proves the reliability and high-quality of what the company does daily.
