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.

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!
