Clearlake Long Distance Moving Companies

Moving is as exciting as it is overwhelming. While there are a lot of new experiences to look forward to, it also demands a lot of time and effort. It’s not easy to cut ties with a place you have known for so long. Not to mention the burden of packing, unloading and transporting all your belongings.

We are house movers based in California. We hope to make your move to Clearlake stress-free with the moving guide below. We also relocate cars.

Tips to make your move easier

  • Begin early: Start your packing days before the moving day. Start with the items you don’t use often and finish with the essentials. Packing early will result in neatly packed boxes, which will make it easy to unpack.
  • Weight of boxes: While packing the valuables, pack according to their capacity. Don’t over pack or under pack. Over packing may cause the boxes to come apart. On the flipside, under packing may result in the boxes being crushed under the weight of heavier boxes stacked on top. While stacking the boxes, remember that the heavy ones are placed at the bottom, with the lighter ones on top. Be sure to create an aisle to provide you with easy access to all boxes in the storage unit.
  • Label everything: When you dismantle furniture (a bed or a table), put (easy-to-remove) masking tape on strategic areas to indicate which part goes where. Before putting items in a box, make a list and assign each to their respective box. Make labels for each box and attach them to all sides of the box. When making your list, include the estimated replacement value of each, particularly if you want to have them insured. If there are breakables, place ‘fragile’ stickers on the box.
  • Prevent leakages: Remove batteries from all toys and equipment. This will prevent damage caused by leaking batteries. Ensure you tightly cap all bottles with a plastic wrap.
  • Turn in the keys: When you’re leaving the old house, be sure that the area is secured and the keys turned over to the individual concerned.

Why you should hire a professional moving company

Professional moving companies are experts in their trade. They have the manpower, equipment and expertise to make sure your move goes as smoothly as possible. Here is why:

  • Free estimates: Movers offer free quotes in advance. This will allow you to budget in advance on how much your move will cost.
  • They are experts in packing: Movers use premium packing materials that ensure your belongings will be protected from damage. They are also able to pack in a way that will maximize on space.
  • Insurance cover: A comprehensive insurance cover will give you peace of mind. In the event of loss or damage, they will bear the liability.

How to find the best moving company

Not all movers in Clearlake can execute a successful move. Here are other factors to consider:

  • Seek reliable references: Ask your friends, business partners or other people who might have sought the help of these relocation companies recently. Be careful not to hire a broker.
  • Insurance: Check if the company gives a Certificate of Insurance on its corporate insurance policy. The foremost objective is to get valuable protection against any property damage and/or workers’ compensation claims. Don’t go for a firm that hesitates in doing so.
  • Cost: Cost should be considered top priority. In general, Clearlake movers work either on hourly rates or net cost. Do a thorough comparison of both the options before making any final decision. However, it is better to go for net cost basis especially if you have too many items to move.

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!
