Why a professional moving company is necessary

  • Insurance: Moving companies are liable for all moving items and workers. They are professionally trained to handle the move. In case unfortunate events occur, the items are covered under basic insurance. It covers the cargo, workers and building. You do not have to worry about any compensation in case of injuries or damages. You can also use affixed insurance for high-value and fragile items. When conducting a self-move, in case a relative breaks a limb, you are responsible for their medical bills. They might also decide to sue you and ask for more compensation.
  • The right equipment: Movers have appropriate equipment to deal with all moving items. They have dollies which move multiple stacked boxes in few trips. Ramps are used across irregular floors and inclined surfaces to make movement easier. Moving companies use corrugated boxes which can withstand the heavy weight of packed items. To ensure the equipment is effective, it is handled by trained personnel. The heavy stacked boxes are moved by well-built and alert teams. The trucks are driven by personnel with wide experience. This ensures optimum safety and timely deliveries.
  • Affordable: Movers enjoy economies of scale which lower the overall cost. They also consolidate moves which results in a 10-15% reduction in total cost. The optimum safety and insurance provided means losses are none existent/minimal. When doing a self-move, you may try to save money but end up losing more. The accidents, injuries, and delays are very expensive.

Steps towards finding the best mover in Ames

Ask recommendations from friends and real estate agents. The suggestions are more trustworthy. Reputable movers might have dealt with people in your vicinity. Local movers are the best since they know the terrain and understand your needs.

Check verified sites like Yelp or Transportreviews.com. They have thousands of detailed reviews on how moving companies handle their clients.

Enter the USDOT carrier number of a moving company at FMSCA. Check how the company fairs in terms of safety ratings, consumer complaints and pending violations.

Moving companies that have been assessed and deemed worthy by BBB are reliable. Movers with fishy operations avoid being assessed by the Better Business Bureau.

Simple tips for a seamless move to Ames

Hire a company with relevant experience according to your type of move. An experienced company has exceptional services and is more likely to succeed.

Allocate maximum time between when you choose the company and moving day. It is necessary in case you change your mind or have additional items to move.

Scale down you move by donating items you no longer use. Keep the receipts to deduct expenses on your income tax. Alternatively, you can sell pricier items to fund your move.

Keep valuable and personal items with you. You can use affixed insurance for high-value and delicate items.

Smartly pack all items. Pack heavy items in small boxes and light items in large boxes. Wrap the items in clothes and blankets to reduce the amount of bubble wrap used. Use stuffed animals to pad fragile items.

Label all the boxes along the sides according to the room they belong to and items contained. Tape the edges of each box to provide enhanced strength.

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!
