East Grand Rapids State To State Moving Services

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 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.

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!
