Alma Long Distance Moving Companies

Alma is the largest city in Gratiot County, Michigan. It’s famous for the Highlands Festival which celebrates Irish heritage. The festival attracts thousands of Irish people and onlookers. In Alma, you can live amongst nature at the Buena Vista Park and Upper Mississippi Wildlife Refuge. There are interconnecting lakes and streams that provide refreshing views, boating and fishing activities. The expansive lands also host thousands of animals and plant species. Long distance moves to/from Alma are hectic and are best handled by professional movers such as A-1 Auto Transport. We are the most experienced and well-equipped moving and vehicle relocation company in Alma.

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.

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 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

Preparation

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.

Packing

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.

Moving day

  • 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.

Satisfied Customers

“I am meticulous when it comes to everything. At first, I was thinking of just driving all the way to Illinois from New Jersey. A friend recommended me to go to A1 Auto Transport and told me a lot of good things about them. I refused initially because I had filed a 4 day leave just to drive and visit my mother. But things did not go well. My boss asked me to cancel my leave because a very important client asked for an urgent meeting, and the manager could not attend to it. I was hopeless and took the risk of asking help from A1. The notice was short and I forgot I needed to inform them in advance. After a couple of hours, I received a call and they told me they found a way to book me with no extra fees. I am so thankful I got to attend to my work matters. I did not get to see my mother, but the vehicle and items inside it were in perfect condition as if it was me who took care of it. I owe you guys big time! I got one huge deal from our client.”

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“I’m so glad I met you Joe!! A truly fortunate experience. Having to transport a car to Minnesota, I was stunned to see the company, who was supposed to take care of it, just vanish. I couldn’t reach them anymore, like they went bankrupt overnight. However, I was lucky enough to not pay anything, so I simply researched some more until I found A1 Auto Transport. Joe answered my call the first time and we soon agreed on a date and a quote. Unfortunately, I got caught up in work and forgot about it. The order was not confirmed, so Joe must’ve thought I changed my mind. I called him the next day and arranged for a new date. This time, I made a note on my phone and it went well. I replied to his email this time, and the driver arrived at a parking lot down the street on time, as promised. The driver was nice enough to not mention my previous mistake. He delivered my car in just 3 days. Upon careful inspection, there were no scratches or damage done to it during transport. Joe was there along with the driver and they both waited patiently until I was satisfied. Thanks!”

“A1 Auto is kind of like your favourite mom and pop pizza parlour, the one you can’t get enough of despite all the new, expensive avant-garde pizza shops that have mushroomed conspicuously across the entire neighbourhood and seem to have taken over the whole world...but not you. Because you value quality and genuine customer service, and know this business understands and works doubly hard to give you your money’s worth. I’ve been using A1 Auto Transport whenever I left California for business: they may not be the cheapest car transporters around, but the sheer professionalism, dedication, and heart they put into their work is just amazing and worth my every dime. I’m probably one of the most sceptical people you would ever meet. I’m rarely convinced when bombarded with dubious, self-congratulating ads of companies that look like they’ve spent tons of money on marketing materials just to lure your average guy in. A1 Auto Transport is the complete opposite of these companies. My car always arrived promptly on schedule, never with a hint of scratch or dirt or damage, and they keep me updated every step of the process. When you’ve found a company whose genuine care for their customers comes naturally, you stand by them no matter what. It’s the most logical thing to do.”

“A1 Auto Transport helped me move a vehicle to Iowa from Houston. I was a bit nervous, no knowing much about such services. Thanks to Joe, I was able to clear the fog a little. He answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that left no room for interpretation. The details were straightforward. I picked Sunday as the pickup date, since I wasn’t at work, and they accommodated me. The truck arrived an hour early, yet the driver patiently waited for me to arrive. He thoroughly checked my car for scratches or anything that might affect the transport then drove it onto the truck. I was given a 2 day time window during which the car was supposed to arrive in, and it got to Iowa in the evening of the first day. The trip didn’t damage it at all. Next time a friend wants to move, I’ll surely recommend A1 Auto Transport.”
