You’ll agree that moving to Decatur is as daunting as it is rewarding. Yes, there is the joy of a new career, a new house or maybe even a new life with your partner. But on the flipside, the physical move is very overwhelming. This is why we saw it fit to give you a few tricks to help your move to Alabama smooth and stress free.
Do not overload boxes beyond 30 pounds. You risk suffering a back injury if you do so. Also one of the boxes might give into the weight of the items inside and bottom out. Pack light items in large boxes and heavy items is small boxes. This packing tip alone will save you a great deal of work and strain.
Also ensure to pad out boxes and containers. Use old newspapers, packing papers, or just old rags to fill gaps in the boxes. This should safely secure the items for the ride.
Its always wise to have a good labelling system. Write on the sides of the boxes and not on top. This will make it easier to identify each box even when they’re stacked atop each other. It’s also advisable to use a different colour for every room. Ask your children, if you have any, to help you. Kids love drawing and coloring, so what better way to reduce the stress of moving? This is just one way of helping your kids cope with the move.
Put heavier boxes on the bottom. This is to ensure no breakable items will get crushed during the move. Boxes full of books and furniture parts are examples of what you should be loading first.
Prepare a box of essentials. This should contain a collection of household goods you know you’ll need on the first day in your new abode. Stuff them in a clearly labeled box and keep it with you.

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!
