Elmira State To State Moving Services

Elmira Long Distance Moving Companies

Long distance moves can be strenuous, but when conducted by professional movers, they are stress-free. Elmira, the county set of Chemung County, New York is a city built for the service industry. It has numerous parks which offer hundreds of recreational activities and scenic sites. The city is also known for museums which are dedicated to honoring the past. They have multiple collections with some dating back to the 16th century. If you want to make your move smooth, choose an experienced moving company such as A-1 Auto Transport. We also handle vehicle relocations.

Why you need a moving company

  • Accountability: Ensuring your items are safe while the move is conducted within the agreed time is the responsibility of moving companies. Movers handle moving tasks such as packing and loading professionally. They also use experienced drivers who navigate the shortest and safest routes to deliver your items. In case any damage happens, the company repays you promptly.
  • The distance: Long distance moving is tedious and time-consuming. No one wants to drive hundreds of miles for days on end. Driving heavily loaded trucks is also not an easy task. Long distance moving also requires permits to handle household items across states. Save yourself the stress and hire professional movers like A-1 Auto Transport who have adequate moving resources and required permits to make safe long distance moves in a single trip.
  • Professional inventory: When moving, it is important to make an inventory of all your items. It helps estimate how much money you need to spend on the move. Inventories also help determine which items require special services and how long your move might take. Moving companies create proper inventories for all your items when moving. They also pack and load your items categorically which eases the unpacking process.

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.

Steps to find a reliable mover

Where to find reliable movers

Check the American Movers and Storage Association. The largest moving association in the country seeks to improve the moving industry through provision of quality services and spreading awareness about the role of moving companies. Most members of the association are professionally trained on how to handle customers and provide quality services.

Check moving customer-advocacy sites which are verified by certification authorities such as VeriSign. They assess moving companies according to the opinion of past customers. Trustworthy moving companies have positive customer remarks while average movers register numerous consumer complaints.

What to consider in a moving company

  • Experience: Experienced moving companies that have been in the moving industry for more than 10 years have the best services. They have seen it all which ensures almost no challenge can overpower them. They also have adequate moving resources such as trucks and personnel.
  • Training: It is better to use moving personnel who are professionally trained. Trained personnel also provide high-safety standards to all tasks they handle. Companies which employ day labor are more likely to get into accidents which lead to additional expenses.
  • Licenses and insurance: Deal with moving companies that are licensed by the United States Department of Transport. Check the type and validity of their insurance at the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association.

Tips for a stress-free move

  • Make your long distance move with a professional mover when the conditions are right. This includes moving during the off-season. It ensures you get a better deal with faster delivery intervals and reduced moving charges.
  • Plan for activities like acquiring moving supplies, enlisting friends to help with your move and changing your address at the United States Postal Services at least a month in advance.
  • When packing, use corrugated boxes that have more rigidity to pack heavy items. Tape them along the edges and at the bottom with double layers of tape.
  • Mark all packed boxes along the sides with the type of items contained and the room they are headed.
  • On moving day, sign the bill of lading after all services have been completed satisfactorily.

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!
