Why you need a moving company
- Lower chance of personal injury: Moving bulk items long distance is tire-some. You become inefficient after a few hours and you might injure yourself. Heavy items such as L-couches and king size beds are more risky since they can cause permanent damage. Driving for long hours causes exhaustion and you can cause road accidents. Professional movers have the experience and equipment to ensure they safely protect themselves when moving your items. They also work in shifts to reduce the likelihood of inefficiency.
- Saves time: Moving companies work at a faster rate than your ordinary helpers. They have the experience and training to pack and load items much faster. The personnel use advanced equipment such as real-time satellite technology and modified vehicles to reduce the delivery time.
- Flexibility: Moving companies have a flexible schedule when dealing with customers. You can design your move and they only assist you to accomplish it. You can also include special requests on moving day such as pet transport or electrical appliances. Professional movers like A-1 Auto Transport can effectively handle emergencies such as sudden job relocations or natural disasters.

How to find a reliable mover in Alma
Ask for referrals from friends, coworkers or relatives. They might have dealt with moving companies in the locality. Their recommendations are solid since you trust the source.
Use review sites to evaluate the experience of past customers at the hands of moving companies. They also have useful moving tips and how to protect yourself when dealing with moving companies.
Check for blacklisted moving companies. The consumer advocacy site deals with screening moving companies and validating their legitimacy. They extensively perform background checks before recommending any company. Any mover approved by the site is reliable. They also name and shame mediocre moving companies.
Check with the FMCSA on how movers should handle customers. View a step by step guide on how to choose a moving company. Read and understand the booklet with the customers’ rights and responsibilities before engaging with any moving company. The association also allows customers to lodge complaints if they receive shoddy services.
Some companies manipulate the payment policy to arm-twist clueless customers into paying ridiculous prices. Ensure the estimate handed is a 10% nonbinding estimate.
Tips to accomplish a smooth move
Hire a moving company which fits your bill-relevant moving experience, delivery window and pricing.
Change the lease agreement with your landlord before you start moving. It’s important to avoid last-minute rushes on moving day.
Call friends to assist you with your move and inform the neighbours about your move.
Start packing from the room with most items. Use a spreadsheet or checklist when packing.
Pack clothes in suitcases or trash bags and move some by your means. Roll the clothes to avoid them creasing and using more space. Vacuum the bags to ensure you maximize on the space available.
Use mobile packing apps to make the process swift and efficient. Ensure your friends only pack less risky items like books, furniture and clothes.
- Get 70% ready before the moving company arrives.
- Reserve a convenient parking spot for the company.
- Say your goodbyes and provide the personnel with refreshments after the job is completed.
