House moving tips

  • Fill holes in your walls using bar soap. Simply rub it over the hole and apply a little paint to make your walls look new. Your house needs to be in perfect condition to avoid penalties from the landlord.
  • Connecting electronic devices can be tricky especially if they are many. To make your work easier, take photos of their connection before disconnecting. The pictures will act as references when reconnecting them at your new house.
  • Take inventory to keep track of your belongings. The list will help you identify anything that goes missing or any items that get damaged along the way. If your mover takes inventory, ask for a copy for your records.
  • Pack strategically starting with the rooms that are not used frequently such as the garage or guest bedroom. Also, pack out-of-season clothes and equipment to create more working space.
  • Use high-quality boxes to keep your items safe. Make sure everything fits perfectly and the flaps are not hanging on the sides. Fill any gaps using packing paper or soft clothes before sealing the boxes both on top and the bottom.

Why you should consider a professional moving company

  • Expertise: If you have valuable, delicate and expensive items like sculptures, piano or paintings, get professional help. They are specialists and have the skills to take care of such items without breaking anything. They are experienced and will move the items safely to your new home.
  • Reliable services: Your friends can offer to help you move fail to show up on the big day. Frustration will set in and you'll be left wondering what to do next. You can avoid this by enlisting the services of professional movers. The movers will even call to remind you of the upcoming event a week in advance. Apart from showing up on time, you can expect your move to be smooth.
  • Storage facilities: A move doesn’t always go the way we want it. Unexpected events such as bad weather can cause delays and you'll require a place to keep your items as you wait for it to pass. With a professional moving company, you don’t have to look elsewhere. They have secure facilities to store your items, safely.
  • Financial control: Movers provide estimates to customers to help them plan their finances effectively. They will have experts visit your house to evaluate what you own. This will help them calculate your moving quotes more accurately. You will have an idea of how much your move will cost for easy budgeting purposes.

Ways to find the right moving company

Set your priorities right. Don’t look for moving companies based solely on their rates. You need to consider other factors including the following:

  • Your mover should be duly registered and licensed by the FMCSA. Interstate movers should have a USDOT Number displayed on their websites and trucks while intrastate movers must have a permit from the Mississippi Department of Transportation.
  • Verify if the mover has a physical address. Consider visiting their premises to check out their equipment, trucks and the conduct of their staff. Getting first-hand information will help you make an informed decision.
  • Check if your mover has an affiliation with national trade associations. The American Moving and Storage Association ensures members are legitimate, trustworthy, and offer reliable services. AMSA aims at making the moving industry safe for consumers.

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.”
