Boston Long Distance Moving Companies

Every year, millions of Americans move to different states and cities for varied reasons. Job transfers, education, personal and family relationships are some of the top reasons. The biggest dilemma is whether to hire a moving company or move on your own. With an experienced moving company like A-1 Auto Transport, your move to Boston will be less complicated. Based in Massachusetts, we offer unrivaled moving services including vehicle transport.

Top tips to save time when moving

  • Keep the process of moving on track by creating a checklist at least six weeks in advance. You might think that you can easily accomplish the tasks but without proper planning, you might run out of time with a lot of stuff still pending.
  • Work with a budget. Approach several moving companies and request for estimates to help you determine how much you'll spend on your move. Movers normally send experts to assess your belongings to provide an accurate estimate.
  • Start packing as soon as possible. Any help you can get from your friends will go a long way in reducing the workload as moving day approaches.
  • Change your address from your local post office or online before moving out. This will prevent you from paying bills that you didn’t use. Notify your close friends and family members of the upcoming move and give them the new address.
  • Visit the new place to familiarize yourself with the neighborhood. Find out where the shops are in case you need anything when you arrive. Take a walk in your new surroundings and talk to neighbors to get information about the favorite restaurants and social places.

Why you need a professional moving company

Professional services

Moving companies do thorough checks of the areas they are going to use when transporting your household items. Since they have been doing this for a long time, they understand the neighborhoods well enough to know the safest and shortest routes to use.

The right equipment

When moving, you can’t use just any other truck. Professional movers use specially designed moving trucks that have air ride cushions to protect your household items from getting damaged while in transit. If you have heavy items, the movers have the right equipment to safely carry them into the trucks.


Most professional movers are insured which means they will do their best to ensure your items are protected. This gives you confidence that your items will be delivered intact and in case of an accident you are guaranteed of compensation. To confirm that your mover is insured, check with the Licensing and Insurance Public.

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.

How to choose a reputable moving company

Word of mouth is a fast and effective way of getting firsthand information about moving companies. Ask your friends and family members who have recently moved for suggestions about reliable movers. Shortlist a few movers and check if they meet your requirements before picking one. Finding movers this way will save you time and effort you’d have spent looking for movers online.

Search for your moving company by name or USDOT Number to determine their legitimacy. The FMCSA offers a lot of useful information about movers such as the address, contact information, inspection records and the complaints history. If it’s a local move, check if they have a valid license from the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities.

Research the moving company you are interested in to make sure they have a physical office. Unscrupulous movers operate shadow offices making it hard to trace them in case they disappear with your belongings. Work with a company that is transparent and has clear working policies.

Read online reviews from trusted sites like Yelp or Angie’s List. You can learn more about your moving company through the comments of past consumers. The conduct of a moving company, especially, how they respond to claims will help you determine whether or not to hire them.

International And Overseas Moving To Or From Boston

Overseas moves are often carried out with a ship. The price is much lower than when using a plane to transport the same objects. A container must be used, and you can even share it with others to reduce expenses.

If your personal belongings must go to a country such as Canada, the move can be completed with just a truck. We recommend you call and consult with our staff. There are many aspects to discuss including discounts and various offers.

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!
