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


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.

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.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
