Why hire a moving company?


Moving involves:

  • Hiring a truck and driver
  • Sourcing for moving supplies
  • Switching addresses, utilities and cancelling subscriptions
  • Getting interstate permits
  • Hiring a babysitter for the kids and pets
  • Packing numerous items in corrugated boxes

These tasks are many, expensive and time consuming. You can easily forget some tasks which may result in inefficiency.

Moving companies can swiftly handle the difficult tasks. This leaves you with ample time to design your move and ensure nothing has been forgotten.

You do not have to take time off to assist with your move. Moving companies have full-service moves that handle every bit of the moving process.

They also have extra services such as pet transport and emergency moves. This confirms the company can handle any your needs.

Equipment and trained employees

Moving companies have the appropriate equipment to deal with any item. They have dollies which move stacked boxes. Ramps are used across irregular floors or high grounds to reduce the time used to navigate such difficult areas.

The company also has winches and vacuum lifting machines which deal with bulky items. They can easily hoist a pool table several storeys high. The team can also dismantle large furniture and move it in bits.

The equipment used is only as good as the hand using it. Moving companies have employees who are built to handle heavy lifts and work for long hours. The employees are professionally trained to ensure they provide remarkable services. They divide themselves into teams to handle different tasks simultaneously.

Working together for long periods increases their efficiency. They know the weaknesses and strengths of each team member. They can anticipate dangerous situations and avoid them or tread cautiously.

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.

Steps towards finding the best mover in Cedar Rapids

Ask for suggestions from colleagues or real estate agents. Professional moving companies may have served someone within your vicinity. Real estate agents have useful information since they regularly deal with moving companies.

Iowa Moving and Warehousing Association has the most reliable moving companies in the state. They thoroughly vet all members before registration. Look for movers with more than 10 years of experience.

Use customer reviews from verified sites like Yelp. They validate each review since some companies are known to generate fake reviews using fake accounts.

Enter the company’s USDOT number at Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association to view the compliance of a moving company.

Tips for an easy move

Schedule a move with a reliable moving company months beforehand. Inform the company representative of all items you want moved during the walk-through.

Break down the moving days into activities. Allocate adequate time for each task and ensure the schedule does not conflict.

Acquire moving supplies from U-Haul or for free or at subsidized rates. The equipment is in constant use; hence you need to book early.

Label all boxes along the sides. The label should state the destination and type of items contained. Avoid labeling the top since they can’t be identified in a stack.

Move personal items using your means. You can also make copies of important documents.

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!
