How You Will Benefit from Hiring a Mover
- You will save money
- You won’t have as much responsibility
- You won’t have to put forth as much physical labor
- You can focus on other things that need your attention before the move
- You won’t be at risk for injury and your stuff won’t be at high of risk either
- Your stuff will be handled by trained moving experts and insured the entire time it’s in their care
- Your relocation will be completed faster
- You’ll have guidance the entire time from the mover’s professionals
The Characteristics a Reliable Mover
- A reliable moving company should have state licensing, USDOT registry and other local, state and federal authorizations.
- It shouldn’t be difficult for them to maintain a healthy reputation as shown by way of review sites and testimonials found on the movers’ websites.
- To make things easier on you they should offer a variety of services and solutions or at least the ones that you need to take advantage of.
- Their staff members should be highly qualified, helpful and happy to assist you.
- As mandated by every state, they must abide by the regulations set for the insurance coverage that must be offered to each customer.
The Cost of Moving
The cost of your move is typically not known until either an inspection of your Tuscaloosa home has taken place or the moving services have been completely fulfilled. Why is this you ask? A mover simply doesn’t have enough information right away to calculate a total for you. They need to know…
- The density of the relocation including how many rooms there are
- How many pieces of large furniture must be disassembled, reassembled, transported and delivered
- How much your stuff weighs
- What size trucks are needed
- How much time it will take to complete
- How many moving specialists are needed for the job
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.
Even after they have come to these determinations after the inspection of your home, they must then consider other things such as…
- How much a gallon of gas costs at the time of the transport
- How far they must travel to reach the destination
- What the weather is like and what time of year the move is to take place
- What services you prefer to take advantage of
- Any discounts that you might qualify for or deals you have chosen to benefit from
About Quick Estimates
You may have taken notice during your Internet search for a mover that many of them offer “free quick estimates.” These estimates are extremely useful as you research movers you’d like to potentially hire but they cannot be mistaken for your actual total should you choose to hire them. These quick estimates typically come in two forms. You can either phone in to speak with a representative or use the online moving service calculator provided on the website. Calling in is more personal and closer to the actual total while the moving calculator acts a little faster and lets you skip phoning in unless you decide to schedule with that mover.

Preparing for a Move
Even with emotions running wild and the moving company caring for a majority of the responsibility, you will still be responsible for completing some of the tasks ahead. The more you help the relocation, the safer and faster it will be carried out. Here is how you can do your part in the move…
- First, write out a list of all the stuff you must do before the movers come to load the truck
- Clean your home before they come so that they don’t trip or fumble over any clutter as they navigate through your home to gather your things
- Have somewhere nearby that they can park even if you must get the proper permissions from the City of Tuscaloosa
- Don’t allow kids or animals to be inside the home while the movers are there working
- Make sure you have all forms and documents collected as requested by the mover
- Write out your own list of inventory
