Top moving tips
- Avoid moving during the weekends. Most moving companies are busy, and the rates are usually high. Pick a date that falls in the middle of the week or month.
- Clean your items as you pack. Wipe off dust from your furniture and clean your electrical appliances to avoid transferring dirt and bugs into your new home. If you're moving your fridge, defrost it at least 24 hours before moving and wipe it dry to prevent the growth of mildew.
- Gather sufficient packing supplies before you start packing. Get boxes of different sizes, high quality sealing tape and bubble wrap. There's nothing worse than stopping halfway to purchase more supplies.
- Use a Ziploc bag to keep all the screws and bolts from dismantled furniture. Tape the bags to the pieces of furniture they belong to make it easier when reassembling them. You can also label the plastic bags for easy identification.
- Get friends to help out with the packing. Designate each person to a specific task if you want the job done efficiently. Packing takes time to complete and having a little help will go a long way in reducing the workload.

Benefits of hiring a professional moving company
- Insurance: When you hire a professional moving company, you're advised on the best insurance option to choose. The movers are responsible for your move and will make sure your items arrive at your doorstep in perfect conditions. Most movers are insured which means your belongings are protected.
- Moving estimates: For a more accurate estimate, professional movers send their representatives for an in-house survey. This ensures you don’t overspend on your move since there will be no extra charges. You either pay hourly if it’s a local move or a fixed bill if it’s a long distance move.
- Experience: When it comes to moving, experience matters a lot. The longer a company has been in operation, the better their services. A-1 Auto Transport has moved thousands of people for over 25 years now and we have confidence that we can deliver outstanding moving services than any other company. You want your items to be handled professionally, and we are the best in the industry.

How to find a trustworthy mover
Do your research before hiring a moving company. Ask the right questions to gauge the level of professionalism of the movers and if they are up to the tasks ahead. Find if they cover the area you're relocating to and the type of services they offer. Only hire a moving company that you feel comfortable working with.
Protect yourself from falling prey to rogue operators by hiring a ProMover member. To be certified, a company has to undergo a strict background check to ensure they are legitimate. Visit the American Moving and Storage Association and type your destination and the size of your move to pick a mover from a list of approved movers.
Check if your moving company is operating legally. Verify their credentials with the FMCSA and make sure they have a USDOT Number displayed on their trucks. You can also find a company’s history in the FMCSA database. Avoid companies with multiple complaints since it shows lack of commitment and trust.
