Tips to help you move easier

  • Pick a date that falls in the middle of the week to cut your moving costs. Avoid moving on the weekends since most movers are busy and the rates are high.
  • Pack essential items in different boxes, preferably clear plastic bags that can easily be distinguished. Make sure the bag is loaded last and unloaded first so that you can easily access your items. Having necessities like toiletries, toothbrush, a change of clothes and laptop chargers will save you the headache of sifting through every box looking for your pajamas.
  • Pack your items room by room. Items that belong to the kitchen should be packed together. The same applies to all the other rooms. This way, you’ll have an easy time when unpacking and arranging your items at your new house.
  • Save money by using your suitcases, drawers, baskets and any other container you have lying around. You’ll spend less purchasing the boxes and save on space as well.
  • Use plastic bags to store any bolts and screws. Attach them to the furniture they belong to using masking tape. This will save you searching for them in a pile of stuff.

Why you need a professional moving company

  • The right equipment: Moving heavy and bulky items can only be possible if you have the right tools and equipment. Professional movers are well equipped with tools that make the work simpler. They use dollies, hoisting straps, blankets, and specially designed trucks to safely move your items from one point to another. They are experts in their work and will make sure your items are delivered on time.
  • Protection for your items: Professional movers are insured which means they are responsible for your items during the moving process. They use their skills to safely pack, load and unload your items with minimal damages. In case of an accident, you are guaranteed reimbursement.
  • Professionalism: A professional moving company will always honor the contract you signed. They will come prepared to deliver the services you paid for. Unlike your friends who have other obligations, professional movers will make sure you’re settled within the stipulated timeframe.
  • Experience: It’s advisable to hire movers who have been in the business for a long time. The quality of service delivery is of high quality since they have experienced many challenges and devised ways of overcoming them. You can relax with the knowledge that the movers will handle your items with utmost care.

How to choose the right moving company

  • References: If there’s anyone you know that has recently moved, give them a call to find out their moving experience. You can also get references by requesting the company you want to hire for the numbers of past customers. Companies with a good reputation will be recommended by a majority of people.
  • Don’t rely solely on online reviews: Sometimes customers may have personal vendetta against a particular moving company and will give a biased review. Do your own research and check reputable sites like Angie’s List and the Better Business Bureau. Always trust your instincts and hire a company you feel will give you better services.
  • Avoid falling into the trap of moving scams: Visit the FMCSA website and search if your moving company is listed.  A legit moving company should be properly licensed and issued with a USDOT Number. Make sure their trucks are clearly labeled.

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!
