Akron Long Distance Moving Companies
Akron is the county seat of Summit County and it is the fifth-largest city in Ohio. Akron acquired the title ‘Rubber Capital of the World’ because of its long history in rubber manufacturing. Companies such as Goodyear Tire still operate rubber industries in the region. Akron has also grown to become a hub for biomedical research, education and healthcare. If you are looking to move to, from or within Akron, A-1 Auto Transport will provide you with a variety of moving services to address your every need. We also offer auto transport solutions.

How to identify legitimate movers in Akron
One way to avoid scams is to hire professional movers. Below are key things that you should look out for or do in order to enjoy great services:
- Check for local movers. Always work with local movers. They are best placed to know the local area’s access and exit routes. It is also easy to confirm where their offices are and what kind of resources (trucks, moving equipment and staff) they possess.
- Check for compliance with federal law. The FMCSA governs the operations of all long distance moves. Make sure your mover is registered with them. Get the company's USDOT and MC numbers. Use those numbers to search for the company’s registration status. Among the key requirements for compliant movers is to have insurance that is valued at $750,000 or more. Professional movers will also issue you with the 'Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move' booklet.
- Moving documents. Always review all the moving documents issued by your mover in detail. Never sign blank or incomplete documents. Ensure that your mover comes for an in-house assessment and provides you with written estimates, inventory and bill of lading.
- Reviews. For each of your shortlisted movers, make sure that you get testimonials and reviews. If you cannot get any, go to the company's website to see what their clients have to say. You should also request your company to give you contacts of clients they have served within the last three months and make sure you contact them to find out their experiences. Also, search for customer reviews on public review sites such as Better Business Bureau and Yelp.

Long distance moving tips
- Determine your moving budget and which type of moving services your budget will comfortably allow you to take up.
- If working with movers, ensure that you do a thorough background search on your movers and book your preferred mover at least six weeks ahead of the move date.
- One of the primary pricing factors for long distance moves is the weight of the shipment. It is therefore very important to downsize on items that you will not need.
- Find out the cost of living in the new location so that you can plan on how you will manage your bills.
- Find out from your movers if they have a list of non-allowable items.
- Pack an essentials box or boxes that will carry all necessary items that you will need before your delivery date.
