Why hire a moving company?
- Experience. Moving companies have handled different types of moves. They can navigate steep stairs, heavy traffic and other moving challenges. This ensures your move is not hampered by delays or accidents. Moving companies also have all the necessary permits to handle your goods across states.
- Long distances. Making a long distance move can be hectic. It is exhausting to drive which could lead to accidents. You might also cross several states which require for you to apply for permits to move household goods. Hire moving companies that have adequate moving resources in terms of drivers, moving vehicles and state to state moving permits.
- Dependability. Moving companies will always show up when contracted to handle a move. They arrive on time with all the resources, and only leave once the move has been completed satisfactorily. They are bound by the signed agreement which has consequences for not rendering the hired services. Compared with movers, your helpers might not show up while those that do might leave at their discretion or work sluggishly.

Tips for hiring a quality mover
- Get recommendations. Most reliable moving companies are members of the American Movers and Storage Association or the Better Business Bureau. The organizations work independently to improve the moving industry through creating awareness about the importance of moving companies and how to deal with moving companies. A-1 Auto Transport is BBB accredited and a member of AMSA.
- Verification. Ask the company for their DOT number and use it at the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association to view their:
- Safety rating.
- Pending violations.
- Physical address.
- Moving resources.
- Insurance information.
- Household goods moving license.
- Customer reviews. Check the company’s reviews and ratings at their customer testimonials page or the Better Business Bureau. A reliable moving company should have positive reviews with little or no complaints.
- Moving inventory. Take an inventory of all items you own before contacting a moving company to provide you with a quote. Ensure you account for all household goods to avoid accruing additional charges on moving day.
- Moving rates. To understand how moves are charged, read the moving booklet from the United States Department of Transport or the Ohio Public Utilities Commission for local moves. The booklet enables you to identify reliable movers and how to negotiate for affordable moving rates. A reliable mover should indicate the total weight charged, delivery window and type of insurance used in the estimate.
Tips for a successful move
- Plan your move by scheduling moving tasks in an evenly spaced timeline. Avoid procrastinating tasks since you will end up doing multiple activities on the last day which is inefficient.
- Sort out your belongings and purge household goods you no longer use. Moving with a huge load increases your charges and reduces your hauling efficiency. Sell the items through a garage sale or donate them to Goodwill.
- Smartly pack your household goods. Move room by room and begin packing seasonal items as you proceed to the day to day items.
- Label all the boxes along the sides according to the household goods contained and your name. The boxes should also not exceed 50 pounds. Heavy boxes are more difficult to handle and have increased chances of damaging the items inside.
