Unless a moving company is hired, you’re likely to face obstacles during the process of relocation. There are many affordable apartment movers to look into when your family is planning to relocate. The mover you choose should have a variety of services available at cheap flat rates as well as other qualities to prove their reliability as a moving company.

Moving is never really an enjoyable experience, but there are some ways in which you can minimize the stress and make it more palatable. As we all know, one of the best ways to go about this is to hire movers to help shoulder the burden of the driving and heavy lifting—and you may be surprised at how affordable it can be. With numerous service and pricing options available from apartment moving companies, you can easily shave hours (if not days) of work off your move and focus on getting settled in at your new place.

The Benefits Of Hiring Apartment Moving Companies

Moving to a new apartment can present some challenges that make it more difficult than moving into a house, which is why, as a moving service, it remains very popular. If you’ve ever moved into an upstairs apartment, you’re probably familiar with some of the stairwells and tight corners that can make getting a couch into your living room a challenge. When you hire a professional relocation specialist, you don’t have to worry about many of the minor stress factors that can add up, plus you can focus on unpacking and the placement of your furniture in your new living space. Just like any other service, there are levels of competence and expertise with apartment movers. Finding the right company and right service can go a long way toward making your move seamless and hassle-free.

How to Find the Best Apartment Mover for the Job

The key to finding a quality moving company is to look for experience, especially in the area you’re moving to. It’s helpful to work with a moving company that knows the city and neighborhood you’re moving to. The last thing you want on moving day is to deal with unnecessary delays that could have been avoided. You should be able to determine where a moving company is headquartered and maintains offices from their website, or by placing a call and asking them. If you’re moving to another state, you may not be able to find a mover with a local office, but if an established nationwide mover will likely have a presence in a nearby city.

A-1 Auto Transport provides a full complement of moving services for apartments, homes, and businesses. We operate in all 50 U.S. states and provide quality professional moving options to any location in the country.

Researching Apartment Moving Companies

One of the best tools at your disposal for researching apartment movers is the internet. This doesn’t mean you should inherently trust everything you read, even from a mover’s own website, but it’s a great starting point. Beyond that, there are some things you can glean from a company website that will help you determine if they have the capacity and expertise to do a good job.

  • Look up movers using the FMCSA moving company search tool. This may be the single best available resource for finding accurate information about moving companies.
  • Dig around a company website before contacting them. Do they have a professional looking website that has answers to all your questions? Is contact information easy to find? These are things you should be looking for.
  • Search for reviews or testimonials from past customers, both good and bad (and you’ll find both). You should be careful about taking everything at face value online, but it’s a piece of the picture that will help you make an informed choice.
  • Make sure they offer the specific services you need. If you need the contents of a sprawling condo moved across the country, a local mover that operates in only one region may not be the best choice.

Satisfied Customers

“I am meticulous when it comes to everything. At first, I was thinking of just driving all the way to Illinois from New Jersey. A friend recommended me to go to A1 Auto Transport and told me a lot of good things about them. I refused initially because I had filed a 4 day leave just to drive and visit my mother. But things did not go well. My boss asked me to cancel my leave because a very important client asked for an urgent meeting, and the manager could not attend to it. I was hopeless and took the risk of asking help from A1. The notice was short and I forgot I needed to inform them in advance. After a couple of hours, I received a call and they told me they found a way to book me with no extra fees. I am so thankful I got to attend to my work matters. I did not get to see my mother, but the vehicle and items inside it were in perfect condition as if it was me who took care of it. I owe you guys big time! I got one huge deal from our client.”

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“I’m so glad I met you Joe!! A truly fortunate experience. Having to transport a car to Minnesota, I was stunned to see the company, who was supposed to take care of it, just vanish. I couldn’t reach them anymore, like they went bankrupt overnight. However, I was lucky enough to not pay anything, so I simply researched some more until I found A1 Auto Transport. Joe answered my call the first time and we soon agreed on a date and a quote. Unfortunately, I got caught up in work and forgot about it. The order was not confirmed, so Joe must’ve thought I changed my mind. I called him the next day and arranged for a new date. This time, I made a note on my phone and it went well. I replied to his email this time, and the driver arrived at a parking lot down the street on time, as promised. The driver was nice enough to not mention my previous mistake. He delivered my car in just 3 days. Upon careful inspection, there were no scratches or damage done to it during transport. Joe was there along with the driver and they both waited patiently until I was satisfied. Thanks!”

“A1 Auto is kind of like your favourite mom and pop pizza parlour, the one you can’t get enough of despite all the new, expensive avant-garde pizza shops that have mushroomed conspicuously across the entire neighbourhood and seem to have taken over the whole world...but not you. Because you value quality and genuine customer service, and know this business understands and works doubly hard to give you your money’s worth. I’ve been using A1 Auto Transport whenever I left California for business: they may not be the cheapest car transporters around, but the sheer professionalism, dedication, and heart they put into their work is just amazing and worth my every dime. I’m probably one of the most sceptical people you would ever meet. I’m rarely convinced when bombarded with dubious, self-congratulating ads of companies that look like they’ve spent tons of money on marketing materials just to lure your average guy in. A1 Auto Transport is the complete opposite of these companies. My car always arrived promptly on schedule, never with a hint of scratch or dirt or damage, and they keep me updated every step of the process. When you’ve found a company whose genuine care for their customers comes naturally, you stand by them no matter what. It’s the most logical thing to do.”

“A1 Auto Transport helped me move a vehicle to Iowa from Houston. I was a bit nervous, no knowing much about such services. Thanks to Joe, I was able to clear the fog a little. He answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that left no room for interpretation. The details were straightforward. I picked Sunday as the pickup date, since I wasn’t at work, and they accommodated me. The truck arrived an hour early, yet the driver patiently waited for me to arrive. He thoroughly checked my car for scratches or anything that might affect the transport then drove it onto the truck. I was given a 2 day time window during which the car was supposed to arrive in, and it got to Iowa in the evening of the first day. The trip didn’t damage it at all. Next time a friend wants to move, I’ll surely recommend A1 Auto Transport.”
