Moving is considered to be one of the most stressful life events. American Choice Movers, based in Union, New Jersey, has ten years of experience providing moving and packing services for individual, office, and storage unit moves.
The company is fully insured and licensed and has completed over 47,000 moves with a moving team of 45 people and 11 trucks. American Choice Movers offers free quotes. It also promises flexibility. For customers looking for packing, the company offers both a full-service packing package as well as a selective package, referred to as 50/50, that allows customers to select what items are packed professionally.
American Choice Movers also offers two insurance options for its moves: standard and advanced. The standard plan costs $0.06 per pound and provides basic insurance coverage for moving with minimal protection. The advanced plan cost is undisclosed and provides more comprehensive coverage.
Within the state of New Jersey, American Choice Movers provides the following moving services:
As is the industry standard, American Choice Movers requires that all moving charges be paid before customers’ shipments are unloaded at the destination. Payments can be made using cash, certified check, or money order. A credit card payment can be arranged; however, charges may appear up to two days prior to a customer’s moving day. It is critical to have payment arrangements made before moving day to avoid delays.
Most moving companies do not provide number figures for moving costs on their websites. This can be very inconvenient for customers looking for even ballpark pricing information. American Choice Movers does list some pricing information on its site, stating that moving services start at $240. It also provides the price for one of its insurance coverage packages.
Some movers may prefer a full packing package and some need only minimal packing assistance. It is very convenient when a company offers partial packing packages as well. American Choice Movers allows movers to select from several packing options.
American Choice Movers provides moving services only in the state of New Jersey. This is obviously very limiting for potential customers looking to move somewhere outside the state.
While this may be explained by it not providing interstate moving services, American Choice Movers is not registered with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Being registered with the Federal government and having a U.S. Department of Transportation number is required for interstate movers. It is also seemingly not registered with the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs. Another issue with its licensing is displayed prominently on its website; it lists a spot for its license number but the number is missing.
While American Choice Movers displays claims to have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) on its website, we were not able to verify that the company is registered with the BBB.
