Edina State To State Moving Services

Edina Long Distance Moving Companies

If you're planning a move, you probably are pondering whether to DIY or hire a moving company. Despite what most people think, the benefits of using a professional moving company far outweigh moving on your own. With a move to Edina just around the corner, you need to consider hiring a Minnesota based mover with over 25 years’ experience in the industry. We also offer vehicle transportation.

5 tips for making moving a breeze

  • Create a schedule to help you stay focused. Plan when to defrost your refrigerator, clean your appliances and renovate your new house.
  • Start packing as soon as possible. You probably have between 4-6 weeks before the big day and the earlier you start packing the better.
  • Label each box showing its contents and the room it belongs to. This will guide the movers on how to handle the boxes and where to place them in your new home.
  • Moving boxes up and down can take its toll on your body so make sure they are not overloaded. Keep the weight below 20kgs so that they are not too heavy to lift. Use the small boxes for heavy items and the large boxes for light items like bedsheets.
  • Look for a reputable moving company to help you move. They offer high-quality services and will take the stress out of moving. Book a convenient date, preferably on a weekday, when fewer people are moving and the rates are lower.

Benefits of hiring a professional moving company

  • Reliability. Rather than depending on your friends for help, consider the services you'll get from a professional moving company. They are trained to handle household moves and will bring their expertise to make sure it is smooth. Nothing can be too difficult for the movers and you're sure they will be there on moving day.
  • Fast and efficient. When it comes to lifting heavy and bulky items, no one does it better than professional movers. They are highly skilled to handle furniture and delicate items like the fridge and TV. They can easily carry them down a steep staircase without breaking anything and deliver them fast to your new home.
  • No injuries. No matter how strong you are, the moving process is not as easy as it sounds. You need to be physically fit to be able to pack and load the items. To avoid sore muscles, sprained ankles or back strains, let the professionals do the lifting for you. They work in teams and know how to collaborate to make sure everyone is safe.
  • Insurance cover. Professional movers are insured which means they will be held accountable for your move. Any damages to your items will be their responsibility hence they have to make sure your items get to the destination without a scratch. Your mind will be at ease knowing that you'll be compensated for losses or damages.

Tips to find the right moving company

Start by asking people you trust for suggestions. Friends and family members who have moved recently can offer valuable information regarding the companies to consider and those to avoid. Shortlist a few movers and research on them further to find the right mover.

Make sure you get written estimates from several movers. This gives you an idea of the current market rates hence you are able to pick the most affordable one. Remember to check out their services as well if you want to get value for your money.

Give preference to movers who are certified members of the Minnesota Transport Services Association. These are companies that have undergone strict background checks to ascertain their legitimacy. The companies must also abide by the association’s Code of Ethics and use standard equipment to ensure safe handling of consumer belongings.

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!
