Artesia State To State Moving Services

Artesia Long Distance Moving Companies

The oil and gas industries have continued to be the key economic drivers of Artesia since its early days. Artesia is home to the Abo Elementary School which was the only public school in the US to have been built underground. A-1 Auto Transport has established and distinguished itself as a lead player in the moving sector in New Mexico and beyond. We have also excelled in our vehicle transport solutions.

Many people view moving as such a difficult thing, we however believe it should be a less stressful task that should leave you relaxed and ready to settle in to your new location. We are sure you have had of one or more horror stories from people who have hired movers. There are many good movers out there, you just have to take your time to research their business and understand their terms of engagement.

Tips to take the right decision

Below we discuss some of the common scenarios arising out of the carelessness of rogue movers and how to address them:

  • A mover gives you a very good cost estimate but then throws in many additional fees so you still end up paying more. To avoid this, always make sure that you get an accurate cost estimate. Make sure that you discuss their terms of engagement and possible additional costs and when they’re applicable before signing any paperwork and approvals.
  • A mover can withhold your property by demanding for an additional fee to the quoted estimate so that they can release your items to you. In the event of such case, it is important to raise this issue with the Federal Motor Safety Carrier Association and also report the business through the Better Business Bureau listing.
  • A mover can fail to turn up or show up later than expected without communicating. In this case, if you had not paid any down payment you can cancel the engagement and look for an alternative provider or solution though this may cost you.
  • Movers insurance in most cases does not fully cover all your items thus a good mover will advise you to purchase an additional cover. To protect yourself it is advisable that you find out the value your insurer will provide and what extra insurance value you need to purchase.

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!
