Top 5 tips for a stress-free move

  • Unplug your electrical appliances and clean them thoroughly 48 hours before moving day. This will give them enough time to dry and avoid growth of mildew. The refrigerator doors should be left open until moving day to allow free circulation of air.
  • Reduce the clutter in your home by disposing of things you don’t need. If you still have clothes in good condition you may opt to make a donation to charity homes within your locality. Moving with fewer items reduces your load and consequently your moving cost.
  • When packing, avoid overloading the boxes. Keep the maximum weight below 20kgs to make it easy to move the boxes around. Use the small boxes to pack heavy items and the larger boxes to pack light items such as bedsheets.
  • Flammables and other hazardous materials cannot be moved, therefore, find a safe way to dispose of them.
  • Book your moving date at least 4 weeks in advance to secure a spot in their busy schedule. Make sure you have everything in writing and confirm that your date is reserved. Note that the last and first weeks of the months are busy, so pick your date wisely.

Why hire a professional moving company?

  • Accountability. A professional moving company is liable for your move and will do their best to deliver your belongings safely. The government requires movers to provide a basic insurance cover of up to $0.60 per pound per item. If you're moving expensive stuff, purchasing additional cover is wise.
  • Fast and efficient. When you hire a moving company, you're given a date within which your move should be completed. The movers work fast and efficiently and will have your items at your doorstep before the deadline. Their packing techniques make them the best in what they do and they have backup plans in case of unexpected twists.
  • Reliability. As much as your friends might be willing to help you move, they have other family obligations that they also have to attend to. This may cause inconveniences and lead you to postpone your move. Save yourself the trouble by hiring a professional moving company. They are committed to making your move successful and won't let anything deter that.
  • Peace of mind. The whole process of planning a move can leave you frustrated and exhausted. No one is better at handling the logistics than a professional moving company. They know the safest routes to use, have the necessary equipment and the most competent crew. They ensure your move runs smoothly.

Tips to find a trustworthy moving company

Look for movers in your locality. You can start by asking around or checking reputable sites like Yelp or Angie’s List. Contact a few movers and visit their facilities to check out if they are equipped to perform a move efficiently. Talk to their staff and ask as many questions as possible to find out if they are knowledgeable.

Movers are required to issue consumers a copy of ‘Your Rights and Responsibilities’ booklet. If your mover doesn’t provide this important guide, don’t hire them. You need to know what to expect during a move and this booklet is very informative.

Is your mover licensed? Movers with valid licenses are easy to track if they disappear with your items since their data can easily be retrieved from the FMCSA website. Local movers should have a license from Minnesota Department of Transportation while interstate movers must have a USDOT Number.

Satisfied Customers

“I am meticulous when it comes to everything. At first, I was thinking of just driving all the way to Illinois from New Jersey. A friend recommended me to go to A1 Auto Transport and told me a lot of good things about them. I refused initially because I had filed a 4 day leave just to drive and visit my mother. But things did not go well. My boss asked me to cancel my leave because a very important client asked for an urgent meeting, and the manager could not attend to it. I was hopeless and took the risk of asking help from A1. The notice was short and I forgot I needed to inform them in advance. After a couple of hours, I received a call and they told me they found a way to book me with no extra fees. I am so thankful I got to attend to my work matters. I did not get to see my mother, but the vehicle and items inside it were in perfect condition as if it was me who took care of it. I owe you guys big time! I got one huge deal from our client.”

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“I’m so glad I met you Joe!! A truly fortunate experience. Having to transport a car to Minnesota, I was stunned to see the company, who was supposed to take care of it, just vanish. I couldn’t reach them anymore, like they went bankrupt overnight. However, I was lucky enough to not pay anything, so I simply researched some more until I found A1 Auto Transport. Joe answered my call the first time and we soon agreed on a date and a quote. Unfortunately, I got caught up in work and forgot about it. The order was not confirmed, so Joe must’ve thought I changed my mind. I called him the next day and arranged for a new date. This time, I made a note on my phone and it went well. I replied to his email this time, and the driver arrived at a parking lot down the street on time, as promised. The driver was nice enough to not mention my previous mistake. He delivered my car in just 3 days. Upon careful inspection, there were no scratches or damage done to it during transport. Joe was there along with the driver and they both waited patiently until I was satisfied. Thanks!”

“A1 Auto is kind of like your favourite mom and pop pizza parlour, the one you can’t get enough of despite all the new, expensive avant-garde pizza shops that have mushroomed conspicuously across the entire neighbourhood and seem to have taken over the whole world...but not you. Because you value quality and genuine customer service, and know this business understands and works doubly hard to give you your money’s worth. I’ve been using A1 Auto Transport whenever I left California for business: they may not be the cheapest car transporters around, but the sheer professionalism, dedication, and heart they put into their work is just amazing and worth my every dime. I’m probably one of the most sceptical people you would ever meet. I’m rarely convinced when bombarded with dubious, self-congratulating ads of companies that look like they’ve spent tons of money on marketing materials just to lure your average guy in. A1 Auto Transport is the complete opposite of these companies. My car always arrived promptly on schedule, never with a hint of scratch or dirt or damage, and they keep me updated every step of the process. When you’ve found a company whose genuine care for their customers comes naturally, you stand by them no matter what. It’s the most logical thing to do.”

“A1 Auto Transport helped me move a vehicle to Iowa from Houston. I was a bit nervous, no knowing much about such services. Thanks to Joe, I was able to clear the fog a little. He answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that left no room for interpretation. The details were straightforward. I picked Sunday as the pickup date, since I wasn’t at work, and they accommodated me. The truck arrived an hour early, yet the driver patiently waited for me to arrive. He thoroughly checked my car for scratches or anything that might affect the transport then drove it onto the truck. I was given a 2 day time window during which the car was supposed to arrive in, and it got to Iowa in the evening of the first day. The trip didn’t damage it at all. Next time a friend wants to move, I’ll surely recommend A1 Auto Transport.”
