What is Domestic Moving Companies?

Hiring a domestic moving company is the safest and most affordable way to get through relocation even one so close to your current place of residence. Find a domestic mover nearby with a great reputation, low prices, and various moving services or at least ones that appeal to you and your future relocation. You’ll be surprised by all the options you’re presented with. Finding a licensed domestic moving company you can trust isn’t hard if you know what to look for as you scour the Internet for the best movers around.

There are many different services and packages offered by domestic moving companies. You’re even offered insurance as added protection in case your items become damaged or lost during the move. Make sure the entire value of your property is covered with the insurance package chosen. By law, moving companies are required to carry the minimal amount of insurance coverage as governed by the state. If you wish to have more insurance coverage during the move, ask if you can purchase additional protection through the moving company.

Tips and Advice for Domestic Relocations

  • It’s best to start the process of relocation early on. Preparation is essential to a smooth, stress-free move. If you didn’t opt for full packing services through the moving company, you should start packing a few months in advance.
  • Buy all the proper packing materials and label each box after it’s packed with items.
  • Reduce the amount of money spend on the moving process by ridding of some belongings. To lessen the amount of stuff you own, hold a garage sale to make some extra cash or donate items you have no use for any longer.
  • Make sure all boxes remain in the rooms they were packed in. Have the boxes stacked against the walls of the room. Leave heavier boxes on the floor and stack the lighter boxes on top of them. The movers will stack them the same way in the truck when they load it up for the transport.
  • Take all treasured possessions or important documents with you instead of packing them away for the movers. If they must go with the moving company, make sure they’re adequately covered by insurance during the move.
  • Write out a detailed inventory list. A domestic moving company will often create their own list as they load the goods onto the truck, but it’s good to have your own for comparison purposes.

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!
