You have just moved into your new home; the movers have unpacked and they are long gone. You are looking forward to making memories in this new environment only for your child to drown in the pool. Did you know that preventable accidents in homes are the number one cause of death and injuries for small children? One of the most effective ways to keep your child safe is by child-proofing your house.
Peace of mind: One should enjoy finally owning your own home but it becomes impossible to do so if you are constantly worrying that your child will fall down the stairs or slip on the brand new tiles. Child-proofing will help you and the entire family enjoy the new home without worry.
Child freedom: Kids like to explore and they should have the freedom to do so in their new home; crawling and walking around without being encumbered. Once you child-proof the home, you can let the babies free because you know it’s safe for them to roam around.
Save money: Child-proofing can help you save thousands of dollars in medical bills by preventing injuries and you could also be saving the kids’ lives.
The secret for effective baby-proofing is to move from room-to-room to identify the potential danger spots. One of the best ways to do that is to crawl on the floor so you can see the house from a child’s view. Get this done as soon as the packers have helped you settle in.

One of the best ways to keep your child from things like the fridge, dishwasher, oven and cutlery drawers is to have door latches installed so the child can’t pull them open. Make sure the gas is also switched off and the trash is put outside or in a tightly sealed bin.
Stories of children slipping in the bathroom or drinking toilet water are very rampant. Keep the bathroom locked at all times and the toilet seat latched. Empty the bathtub immediately and lock all medicine and cosmetic cabinets.
Apart from having stable stair case rails, the top and bottom of all staircases should have a lockable gate that a child cannot push open.
Statistics from Consumer Product Safety Commission show that 250 kids die each year from drowning in their swimming pool while 2600 others are hospitalized. Have a suitable pool fence with a self-latching gate to keep the children safe. You can also install a pool door alarm that goes off until an adult disables it.
The lounge and bedrooms are full of electrical outlets, wobbly bookcases, nightstands, lamps, blind draw cords and glass. Keep all these items away from a child’s reach and ensure all unused electrical outlets are covered and have carpet grippers to keep the carpets and rugs intact.
Because baby-proofing your new home is very critical have it at the top of your to-do list immediately you move into your new home.

After college, he started his career in the auto transport industry from the bottom up and has done virtually every job there is to do at A-1 Auto Transport, including but not limited to: Truck Driver, Dispatch, Sales, PR, Bookkeeping, Transport Planner, Transport Manager, International Transport Manager, Brokering, Customer Service, and Marketing. Working with his mentor Tony Taylor, Joe Webster has learned the ins and outs of this industry which is largely misunderstood.

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.
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!
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 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!
