Why you need a professional mover

  • Saves time: When using moving companies you can be sure of swift services. The personnel have the experience required to pack and load the items faster. The company plans for the move months in advance. They arrive well equipped and know how to deal with any challenges. The professionally trained personnel and advanced equipment ensure the move is done within the stated timeline. Professional movers know the more time they spend handling a move, the more expensive it gets for the client.
  • Minimal accidents: Moving companies have the skills and experience to cut down the chances of accidents. They apply sufficient labour when moving bulky items. They can also dismantle large items and move them in bits. They use winches, trolleys and forklifts to move heavy items such as couches and king size beds. Real-time satellite tracking ensures they are aware of potential trouble like bad roads or extreme weather.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods nationwide. Call 888-509-3213 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.

How to find the best moving company in Detroit

Start early since most movers in Detroit are usually booked. Check the Michigan Movers Association for reliable movers operating within the state of Michigan. Use the American Movers and Storage Association for reliable state to state movers.

Check the company’s reputation at the Better Business Bureau and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association. A reliable moving company should have a satisfactory safety rating and zero pending violations. Review the consumer complaints and get to know the weakness of the mover. If the company still has the same complaints in a span of 2 years, it means they don’t value the customer’s satisfaction.

Search for customer reviews on sites like Moverreviews.com. Satisfied customers leave glowing reviews while unsatisfied customers have negative comments. It’s advisable not to fully depend on internet reviews when choosing moving companies. Some sites are known to generate fake reviews to improve their ratings.

Get at least three estimates from different companies before agreeing on the best. Check how the company deals with the delivery window and payment policy. They are the two most sensitive clauses in the estimate. Delays in payment can cause additional expenses which can break your move.

The best tips when moving to Detroit

  • After choosing the most reliable moving company, start marking your moving items. Declutter all items you no longer use by selling or donating them.
  • Pack the items and tape the boxes on the outside and mark them appropriately.
  • Use the company’s estimate to plan your move. Make a budget and mark moving dates on a centrally placed calendar.
  • Have a checklist of all items you have packed. Document their condition and take clear photographs.
  • Do not pack liquids in the boxes. They spill easily especially along rough roads. Small spills of bleaching agents can ruin your clothes. If you have to move them, pack them together and reinforce the lids with plastic sheets and inform the movers.
  • After all the items have been loaded, move around the house one final time and confirm nothing has been left unpacked.
  • Inform the movers about the rules of your new premises before they arrive. They may have strict entry and exit hours or a policy against access by big vehicles.

International And Overseas Moving To Or From Detroit

A1 auto transport can not only ship your car, but any item within your house as well. We can provide international transportation for your property as well as related services.

Some clients insist on doing their own packing, so they won't have to pay the company another fee. However, in this case, any mistakes done will be the responsibility of the client. It's a very time consuming process too, and there're particular steps you need to follow to do it well.

The way your furniture and boxes are placed in the truck/container is also important. Not only must everything be immobile, but fragile things must be placed on top and some items may have to strapped or surrounded by buffer materials to prevent damage.

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!
