Austin Long Distance Moving Companies

Settling in a new neighborhood away from your comfort zone is a good challenge for you. A move to Austin will be more exciting and adventurous if you let the experts at A-1 Auto Transport manage the moving process. We take every move seriously and treat your belongings as if they were our own. Visit our offices in Minnesota to make your reservation. We also offer vehicle relocation services.

5 hacks to make your move easier

  • Be prepared: Make early preparations to avoid getting overwhelmed by the workload. Give yourself at least 4 weeks to prepare for the move. Have a clear plan to complete all the tasks before moving day. Remember preparation is the key to a successful move.
  • Pack essentials: Set aside a box or bag to pack items you can't do without. Things like toiletries, towels, toothbrushes, beddings, a few utensils, coffee and some snacks will help you survive the first night with ease. Keep the items where you can easily reach them.
  • Change your address: Visit the USPS portal to fill out a ‘Change of Address’ form. Notify the bank, friends, family and business associates of the change and give them the new address. This will ensure you keep receiving important mail and magazine subscriptions.
  • Label boxes: Write a short description of what each box contains on both sides and the top for easy identification. This will help the movers know which boxes contain fragile items and how to handle them.
  • Pack light: When packing, don’t exceed the 20kgs limit. Keep your boxes light to simplify your work and that of the movers when moving the boxes around. It's better to have a dozen light boxes than 3 large and heavy boxes that you can't even move.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods nationwide. Call 888-509-3213 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.

The importance of hiring a professional mover

  • Movers are organized. The process of moving needs a good strategy and no one is as experienced as the staff of a moving company. They have been doing this for a long time and know the tricks to make your move simple. No matter the size or distance of your move, they are skilled to handle such tasks with ease.
  • Economical. Most people believe it's expensive to hire a moving company. This couldn’t be further from the truth. When you hire movers, you don’t have to bear the cost of hiring trucks, fueling, and hiring moving equipment. They provide everything necessary for a move and you only pay for the services. Plus, you have the option to choose what accommodates your budget.
  • Safety. Most professional movers provide moving insurance for household items. They use high-quality packing materials that protect your items from breakages during the move. Your mind will be relaxed knowing that if anything happens to your items, you're covered.

How to find a great moving company

A company with a good reputation has many positive reviews and high ratings. Check with the Better Business Bureau for comments about your mover. Customers who have moved in the past are more than willing to share what their experience was like with a particular mover. Read the reviews carefully to make an informed decision.

Verify the credentials of your moving company by searching them in the FMCSA database by name or USDOT Number. A mover should have legal documents that are up-to-date and observe public safety regulations to be authorized to operate in the moving business.

Request for moving estimates from several moving companies to compare their rates. However, don’t base your decisions solely on the price. Consider the type of services offered and if they can deliver the items to your location. Different movers have different working policies and it is in your best interest to hire a mover that suits you best.

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!
