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.

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!
