Why hire a moving company?

  • Packing: Packing is one of the most tedious and time-consuming moving tasks. It accounts for more than 40% of all moving expenses. You need a mover like A-1 Auto Transport that wraps items in bubble wrap and anti-static peanut. The items are then packed in quality corrugated boxes that can withstand the bumpy roads.
  • Control your finances: Moving companies work with a pre-determined budget. They know how much it will cost to move your items to your new premises. They also take into consideration unexpected circumstances that may come up during transit and mitigate what they can.

    The company works to make your move affordable. For instance, they will advise you to move off-season and provide clear estimates before moving.

  • Emergencies: Situations like job relocations or separations may occur suddenly. If you lack the experience and resources to move your items, this could turn into a nightmare. You can forget items, cause accidents and incur huge expenses. You need movers like A-1 Auto Transport that have standby teams to handle emergency moves in hours. They use sufficient and professionally trained personnel who work simultaneously to pack and load your items in hours.

How to find a reliable mover in Big Lake

Use the American Movers and Storage Association to find over 3,500 registered moving companies. The association trains moving companies and guides them on how to provide quality services. The best movers have a membership of more than 10 years.

Do not presume a moving company legitimate since they are members of professional associations.

Use the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association to view the insurance status of moving companies. All state to state movers must provide basic insurance which covers the customer’s items, building and their personnel. They should also provide supplemental insurance for valuable items since the basic insurance limits their liability to 60cents a pound.

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.

Check the number of consumer complaints a moving company has registered since inception at the Better Business Bureau. The organization deals with over a million moving complaints annually. They are the most trusted complaints resolution organization. Movers who have frequent and unresolved complaints may be inexperienced or rogue.

Ease your move with these simple steps

  • Get organized by planning your move over a period of at least three months. Do not schedule too many activities in a single week since you’ll perform some tasks poorly.
  • It takes longer to produce a cross country moving quote. Ensure you set maximum time for the walk-through and assembling moving supplies.
  • Pack smartly to use less space and avoid damages in the vehicle. Fold clothes and vacuum the box before sealing it. Fill all boxes to the top to ensure they don’t crumble in stacks. Finally pad the boxes and tape them along the edges.
  • Understand how long distance moves work. The payment policy and insurance are a common source of additional expenses and disputes.
  • Separate items you’ll need on arrival to your new premises. They include fresh clothes, toiletries, cooking essentials and beddings.
  • Call friends to assist with packing and loading your items. Assign them items that are not delicate to avoid damage.
  • A-1 Auto Transport has full-service moves for customers who lack the required packing skills or time.

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!
