Why a moving company is necessary
- The right equipment: Moving companies have all types of equipment to make your move smooth. Trolleys are used to move stacked boxes and heavy items. Ramps lean across steep surfaces to ease the loading and carrying process. Very heavy items like L-couches are moved using forklifts or winches. When making a self-move, you need to rent or purchase all these equipment. You also need training on how to use them. It’s expensive and time-consuming.
- Storage services: Moving companies such as A-1 Auto Transport have warehouses located across major metros in the state. They store items for customers who have not found suitable housing or who want to move at a later date. This is convenient since the customer can focus on other activities knowing their items are safe. It also helps in downsizing your belongings since you only store important items in the warehouse. The company representative can help you sort out your belongings to avoid unnecessary storage charges.

How to find the best moving company
Ask for recommendations from friends, relatives or family. They will suggest moving companies if they had a pleasant experience.
Verify the reviews and ratings of moving companies from sites like the Better Business Bureau. They have over a hundred thousand reviews related to moving companies. The organization also handles consumer complaints. Multiple consumer complaints are a sign of poor services and inexperience. If you are to use additional review sites, make sure they are verified. Some companies are known to generate fake reviews to improve their ratings.
Request for quotations from several moving companies and make a comparison. Use the price charged against the services provided. A reliable moving company will provide a fair quotation which covers most services and provides discounts. If the company provides a very low quotation, it may contain hidden charges or it may be a scam. Companies with low quotations are known to provide mediocre services.
Ensure the company has proper insurance. Use the FMCSA to verify if the basic insurance is valid and that it covers all your items. The company should also have a satisfactory safety rating which is higher than the national average safety rating.
Movers operating within the state of Minnesota are regulated by the Minnesota Department of Transport.
Tips towards a flawless move
- Make the long distance move with a reputable moving company such as A-1 Auto Transport. They will ease the process and ensure you are properly settled before they leave.
- Choose a convenient moving date which does not clash with the summer season, weekends or end months. These periods have more people moving which results in increased moving costs. If you are in no hurry, you can opt to consolidate your move which reduces moving charges.
- Get a written estimate to plan your move effectively. It helps you know how much you’ll spend and what to move. Some items might not be convenient to the city you are moving to. If you are moving to Florida, you clearly don’t need woolen sweaters or heavy hoodies. You can donate such items to local charities or friends who help with your move.
- Change your address at the local post office or USPS at least two weeks to moving day. It ensures you get mail in your new address at the right time. Cancel deliveries and subscriptions before they get delivered and renewed respectively.
