5 awesome moving hacks

  • Make an early start: Take time to go through every room and start packing non-essential items. Any items that are not used anymore should be discarded to give room for relevant items. You may opt to hold a yard sale to sell these items.
  • Get plenty of boxes: Don’t just buy any boxes. Your items are valuable hence deserve to be packed in brand new boxes with firm edges. Moving companies provide packing boxes designed to carry delicate items. Gather as many as possible to avoid heading back to purchase more.
  • Pack a ‘first-night’ box: Essential items like clothes, toiletries, medications, snacks and a few utensils should be packed separately in easy-to-identify bags or boxes. Make sure you can easily access the bags by setting them aside during loading.
  • Screws and bolts: Disassemble your furniture in advance and keep the screws, nuts, and bolts in plastic bags. Label the bags and attach them to the pieces of furniture they belong to. This way, you won't have a hard time finding them when reassembling the furniture.
  • Hire a babysitter: If you have younger kids, find someone to take care of them on moving day. Kids love playing around and with boxes and other stuff all over the place, it's not a safe environment for them.

4 reasons why you should hire a professional moving company

  • Professional movers are insured. They understand how valuable your possessions are and will do the best they can to keep your items safe and deliver them intact. You don’t have to worry about that expensive couch or TV, movers know how to handle delicate items and in case of an accident, you'll receive full compensation.
  • Cost saving. Contrary to what you’ve heard, hiring a moving company can actually save you some money. With professional movers, you won't suffer from back pain or sprained ankles. They have skills and manpower to do the heavy lifting saving you a trip to the hospital. The movers capture all the expenses in one bill and charge you either hourly or a fixed amount.
  • Packing supplies. At A-1 Auto Transport, we don’t just move your household items, we offer a full-service package where we pack, load and unload your belongings and make sure you're settled at your new home. We use quality packing materials to protect your items from damages.
  • Reduces stress. There's is no denying that moving can be stressful. But with professional movers, everything is planned and organized professionally so you can have time to accomplish other duties. From logistics to packing and unpacking, professional movers will make your move less stressful.

Steps to find a trustworthy moving company

Search for moving companies online. The American Moving and Storage Association gives you access to a list of certified movers where you can choose one near you. Simply state where you're relocating from/to and the size of your move and you'll have more than three options to choose from.

Conduct research on the moving company that interests you to find out how long they have been in business and their level of professionalism. You want a company that will move your belongings without complications or delays. Select a mover with more than five years’ experience in the business.

A reputable mover is required to issue you a copy of ‘Consumer Rights and Responsibilities’ booklet before the move. The book is a guide to what you should expect from your movers and what to do in the event that something goes wrong during the move.

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!
