Why you need a professional mover
- Stress free: Moving is a stressful task. The logistics involved in ensuring the safety of your items is hectic. You also need to keep time and ensure you don’t forget any item. Professional movers have the experience and skill to safely handle the multiple tasks. With A-1 Auto Transport, expect zero accidents.
- Equipment: Movers use bubble wrap and soft linen to wrap items. Tools such as trolleys are used to load the items in moving vehicles. The company also uses modified and equipped trucks to move your items. When conducting a self-move you’d probably need to buy/rent all these items. You also need to know how to properly use them.
- Heavy lifting: Items like refrigerators and stacked boxes are cumbersome. Moving companies have personnel with the strength, stamina and professional training to safely handle such items. To ease the work, they dismantle the items and move them in bits.
A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods nationwide. Call 888-509-3213 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.
How to find the best moving company in Alexandria
Search for reviews from past customers at Yelp and Movingscam.com. The sites have thousands of comments on how moving companies operate. Beware, not all reviews are honest. Some customers may harbor an agenda against the moving company.
Enter the company’s USDOT carrier number at FMCSA. Verify the company’s experience from the resources and validity section. Check the type of household items license the company owns. You can also lodge a complaint with the association if the moving company provides mediocre services.
If you are moving within the state of Louisiana ensure the mover is licensed by the Louisiana Public Service Commission. Use the company’s La DOT number to verify the credentials of the intrastate mover.
Use the American Movers and Storage Association to find the most reliable state to state moving company. They thoroughly vet all members before registration. The best moving companies often have an experience of more than ten years.
Check with Better Business Bureau on the company assessment and consumer complaints. Moving companies with frequent complaints are untrustworthy. Remember to check how long it takes for disagreements to be resolved.
The best moving tips
- Advanced preparation is important. Ensure you:
- Move during the winter and autumn seasons when moving is more affordable and moving companies are available.
- Change your lease agreement months beforehand.
- Hire a sitter for the kids and pets.
- Source for moving supplies at subsidized rates from the U-Haul customer exchange programme and com.
- Scope the new premises to familiarize yourself with the amenities and neighbors.
- Scale down your move. Sell and donate items you no longer use. Unnecessary items add to the moving cost and reduce the hauling efficiency.
- Separate utilities such as toiletries, clean clothes and cooking essentials and pack them in a first night bag. They help you recover the first few days before you unpack.
- When packing, begin with rarely used items such as sports gear and replacement items and finish up with everyday items. This organization comes in handy when unpacking.
