East Grand Rapids Long Distance Moving Companies

East Grand Rapids is known for affluent neighbourhoods and fine architecture. It’s located in Kent County, Michigan. East Grand Rapids is a favourite summertime destination due to the Reeds Lake and streams cutting through town. Long distance moves need to be handled by professional movers. A-1 Auto Transport has been the most trusted moving and vehicle relocation company in the city. Move to a new area and rejuvenate your life, improve your performance and mental health. Frederik Meijer and Gardens has some cool music and art and history lessons that will blow your mind.

Why you need a moving company

  • Emergencies: Emergencies are common and part of everyday life. They appear when least expected which means you are not prepared. If you have suddenly been transferred to work in a different city over the weekend, movers have a standby team that can handle your move in hours. They can also deal with your excess items and store them as you look for better housing.
  • Chances of accidents reduced: Moving involves carrying and loading heavy items like refrigerators or pool tables. These items are risky and can easily break your limbs or lacerate your skin. You need to have the experience and equipment to move such items. Professional movers such as A-1 Auto Transport have professionally trained personnel who can either dismantle large items or move them using advanced equipment like winches and forklifts.
  • Convenience: Moving companies ensure you do not have to take time off to handle your move. They have all the required equipment, adequate personnel and moving permits. They also provide full-service moves where they handle packing, loading and house arranging. You only need to sign the delivery forms and you move into your new premises in days. They also have warehouses where you can store your items.

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 a reliable mover in East Grand Rapids

Get recommendations from moving associations such as the American Movers and Storage Association. The association is renowned for its professionalism and superb services. They use the Promover logo to identify quality state to state moving companies.

Enter the company’s USDOT number at the FMCSA. Check if the number has been operational for the last three years. Long distance moves across states are regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association. The equipment and personnel must pass several tests to get the required permits.

Check Movingscam.com to know how rogue companies operate. They also have a list of over 100 mediocre moving companies. Read and understand their guide on how to protect yourself when dealing with moving companies.

Beware of companies:

  • That have frequent and unresolved consumer complaints
  • With frequent name changes
  • Asking for more than a 20% deposit
  • With unreliable physical addresses

Use the Better Business Bureau to verify the company’s assessment record and consumer complaints. The organization accredits moving companies with good customer support and incredible services. It is advisable to hire accredited moving companies since the organization acts at the mediator in case of disputes.

The best tips when conducting a move

  • Hire a moving company with relevant moving experience. Confirm their equipment and experience by visiting their offices.
  • Sell or donate items you no longer use. Some items may be old and broken; moving them only increases the moving charge and reduces your hauling efficiency.
  • Mark all moving items and inform the company about your readiness. Ensure the representative conducts a thorough walk-through before handing you an estimate.
  • Smartly pack your items. Pack heavy items in small boxes and light items in large boxes.
  • Move personal items such as heirlooms, documents, cash, and medical prescriptions in your car.
  • Place the packed items in strategic locations to ease on the movers movement. Label all the boxes according to the type of items packed and their destination.

Satisfied Customers

“I am meticulous when it comes to everything. At first, I was thinking of just driving all the way to Illinois from New Jersey. A friend recommended me to go to A1 Auto Transport and told me a lot of good things about them. I refused initially because I had filed a 4 day leave just to drive and visit my mother. But things did not go well. My boss asked me to cancel my leave because a very important client asked for an urgent meeting, and the manager could not attend to it. I was hopeless and took the risk of asking help from A1. The notice was short and I forgot I needed to inform them in advance. After a couple of hours, I received a call and they told me they found a way to book me with no extra fees. I am so thankful I got to attend to my work matters. I did not get to see my mother, but the vehicle and items inside it were in perfect condition as if it was me who took care of it. I owe you guys big time! I got one huge deal from our client.”

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“I’m so glad I met you Joe!! A truly fortunate experience. Having to transport a car to Minnesota, I was stunned to see the company, who was supposed to take care of it, just vanish. I couldn’t reach them anymore, like they went bankrupt overnight. However, I was lucky enough to not pay anything, so I simply researched some more until I found A1 Auto Transport. Joe answered my call the first time and we soon agreed on a date and a quote. Unfortunately, I got caught up in work and forgot about it. The order was not confirmed, so Joe must’ve thought I changed my mind. I called him the next day and arranged for a new date. This time, I made a note on my phone and it went well. I replied to his email this time, and the driver arrived at a parking lot down the street on time, as promised. The driver was nice enough to not mention my previous mistake. He delivered my car in just 3 days. Upon careful inspection, there were no scratches or damage done to it during transport. Joe was there along with the driver and they both waited patiently until I was satisfied. Thanks!”

“A1 Auto is kind of like your favourite mom and pop pizza parlour, the one you can’t get enough of despite all the new, expensive avant-garde pizza shops that have mushroomed conspicuously across the entire neighbourhood and seem to have taken over the whole world...but not you. Because you value quality and genuine customer service, and know this business understands and works doubly hard to give you your money’s worth. I’ve been using A1 Auto Transport whenever I left California for business: they may not be the cheapest car transporters around, but the sheer professionalism, dedication, and heart they put into their work is just amazing and worth my every dime. I’m probably one of the most sceptical people you would ever meet. I’m rarely convinced when bombarded with dubious, self-congratulating ads of companies that look like they’ve spent tons of money on marketing materials just to lure your average guy in. A1 Auto Transport is the complete opposite of these companies. My car always arrived promptly on schedule, never with a hint of scratch or dirt or damage, and they keep me updated every step of the process. When you’ve found a company whose genuine care for their customers comes naturally, you stand by them no matter what. It’s the most logical thing to do.”

“A1 Auto Transport helped me move a vehicle to Iowa from Houston. I was a bit nervous, no knowing much about such services. Thanks to Joe, I was able to clear the fog a little. He answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that left no room for interpretation. The details were straightforward. I picked Sunday as the pickup date, since I wasn’t at work, and they accommodated me. The truck arrived an hour early, yet the driver patiently waited for me to arrive. He thoroughly checked my car for scratches or anything that might affect the transport then drove it onto the truck. I was given a 2 day time window during which the car was supposed to arrive in, and it got to Iowa in the evening of the first day. The trip didn’t damage it at all. Next time a friend wants to move, I’ll surely recommend A1 Auto Transport.”
