With smart planning, relocation can be one of the most comfortable transitions. However, to achieve this, there are some issues you must get out of the way during the scheduling phase. For instance, booking of transportation services in advance can fetch you a fair deal. Besides, a timing of the move to coincide with the time of year when movers are less busy could work to your advantage. At the same time, moving during an optimal weather season can help keep your belongings safe from damage. This is especially so for a long distance move.
Despite the deliberate strategy, there are dates in the year when moving would be misguided. Avoid the following, and you will transition without hassle:
If your plan coincides with the summer, you are in for a surprise. Most citizens prefer moving to new apartments during summertime. Professional moving companies love this weather too. With the high rate of families and individuals relocating, the cost goes up. Conversely, avoid winter relocations as it can be expensive and may damage your possessions.
You cannot schedule a moving date that coincides with the re-opening of schools. Doing so will not only disrupt but also disorient your children. You could also miss out on lectures or college admission. Set your date such that you settle in before the school term commences at the beginning of the year. Do however, keep your children informed of the move so they can bid farewell to their friends and take part in all end-term activities.

Planning to move out on Christmas day, for instance, sounds absurd. The same case applies to other holidays when family and friends come together. Also, setting a moving date during vacations for kids can be heartbreaking. Do not ruin your child’s first Boy Scout or Girl Guide camping outing. If the time coincides with a holiday or pre-planned vacation, postpone the relocation. Let it take place after the celebrations. You will carry sweet memories as compared to sorrow and regrets.
Most people prefer to relocate on the final Friday of a month with the view that they will have the weekend to unpack and set the new house in order. The truth is that getting settled in a new home takes several weeks. Besides, banks are very busy during this time with everyone trying to cash their pay. At the same time, other people are also moving out with the same mentality. Moving companies get busy trying to cope with the demand, and this pushes up the cost. Weekdays, especially midmonth is an excellent time to set a moving date.
When setting a moving date, there are specific ones to avoid. Severe weather can dampen your day in addition to damaging your belongings. Respect the school timetable to prevent disorienting your children. You cannot skip holidays. The last Fridays of the month, are very busy and you should avoid them. By marking the above details in your calendar, you can quickly tell the dates to skip.

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.
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!
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 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!
