Archdale State To State Moving Services

Archdale Long Distance Moving Companies

Whether moving to a near or far location, a move entails similar logistics such as packing, disassembly, loading and offloading items. We have helped millions of Americans move across the country and the globe. Archdale prides itself on being progressive. We are experts in both residential and corporate moves in Archdale. We also offer auto transport services.

Factors to consider in selecting a mover

Moving is considered quite a difficult task. However, hiring a professional mover is a step in the right direction. There are a few key things to look out for when selecting a mover:

  • License and insurance: FMSCA requires that all long distance movers are registered. It also requires all movers to provide insurance to all their clients. Find out the USDOT and MC numbers of your potential movers and search for them to find out if they have complied.
  • Business premises: All of your potential movers should have a physical address from which they operate. You should visit the premises and confirm the status of the offices, confirm if their staff are in branded uniforms and if they have permanently branded trucks.
  • Estimate: Though your decision should not be based on price alone, the quote you get from your mover is a very critical factor to consider. As you compare the quotes, do a thorough background research on each of the companies to help you eliminate rogue movers. Ensure you discuss the estimate in its entirety with your mover including additional charges.
  • Business accreditation: You are guaranteed of quality services when your mover is a member of professional associations that are committed to the delivery of quality services to the client. Work with movers who are registered with the American Moving & Storage Association.
  • Additional moving costs: Additional costs arise out of extra services provided by your mover. It is therefore important to fully understand your estimate and what costs are covered. When and where possible go for binding estimates because they put a cap on what the movers can charge you. Below are some of the most common additional costs:
  • Insurance: Never assume you are fully covered under your insurer’s basic package. Find out what cover they have provided for your cargo and if you will need to purchase more. If moving valuable items such as flat screen TVs always go for Full Value Protection; movers will however charge you more for full value insurance.
  • Disassembly and reassembly of furniture: While some movers will cover this in their base price, other movers will charge it as an additional cost. Items like beds, sofas, dressers and closets may need to be disassembled so that they can be moved with ease.
  • Bulky articles: If you need to move heavy, hard-to-transport items or items that take up a lot of space in the trucks, your mover is bound to charge you more for that service.
  • Long carry fees: This arises when the moving truck cannot be parked close enough to the doorstep of either your old or new premises. Thus if possible always try to reserve a parking spot or pay for parking for your movers.
  • Cancellation fees: It is advisable to understand your mover’s cancellation policy and its implications on your moving budget in the event you need to cancel a move.
  • Express delivery fee: If you would like your items delivered to the new premises within the shortest time possible, you will be charged more because it comes with the rights to use the moving vehicle exclusively for your delivery.

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!
