There is no better way to get through relocation than with the help of experienced long distance movers. Try to book with a long distance moving company at least a few months in advance. This gives you plenty of time to get things situated. Part of this time should include taking inventory at your home before the movers come. If you’re packing on your own, this is also a great time to get started. Allow yourself at least a few weeks to pack up properly.

Take a count of all your possessions. Write down the furniture you have placed in each room and count the number of boxes per room. All your belongings should have insurance coverage through the moving company. If they only provide so much protection, ask to buy additional insurance coverage. If damages should occur to your property while in transit across the United States, you will be compensated through the mover’s insurance agent after a claim has been filed.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods nationwide. Call 888-241-3110 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.

Pack According to Standards to Avoid Increased Service Costs

To avoid increased moving costs, pack everything in your home properly and with the right moving materials and supplies. If you package up your belongings wrong, the movers may repack them, charging you for their labor and materials used. If the items are left packaged poorly and something occurs while on the road, the insurance company may deny your claim. You can try to save money on moving supplies and materials by collecting boxes from stores, using old newspapers to fill space in boxes, using Styrofoam plates between dishes, or using linens to wrap up furniture and other goods.

Pack up each box carefully and label each one with the room it is to go in. Make sure that small boxes are used for heavy items while larger boxes are used for lighter items. Then stack the boxes according to weight nicely against the walls of the room for the movers to easily retrieve when the date of moving day arrives.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ 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.

You have my full support and recommendation!

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!

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
