Foley Long Distance Moving Companies
Prepping for a move in Foley City is no mean feat. From packing up all your belonging to finding a new home, you will have your hands full. When the D-day comes, you will require all the help you can get to ensure that your move is as smooth as possible. We at A-1 auto Transport have come up with a general guide as well as some Alabama State specifics that you need to take into account.
Tips on how to make your move easier
Preparation is half the battle when moving in/out of Foley City. First of all, you will need to take out parking permits lest you contend with pricey tickets. If you are making a move during winter, be ready to contend with delays. Here are a few other things you need to do to make your move seamless.
- Ensure you have all the packing supplies. This includes boxes, tape and a marker or three. Also invest in cushioning materials such as newspaper, bubble wrap or wrapping paper. This will help you safely pack and label all your belongings.
- Another neat trick is color coordination. Assign a specific color to each room for easy identification. For instance, you could assign blue for bathroom and brown for living room. This is done by putting colored stickers on the boxes. The unpacking will be much smoother when you get to your new home.
- Always keep security in mind. Relocating to a new place can be risky, especially if you are not well acclimated to the area. As such, it’s important not to flag your valuables around on the day of moving. This may make you a target for ill-minded people and criminals.
As you can clearly tell, there is a lot of planning and logistics that go into moving. It is quite tiring to handle all of it on your own. Consider using a professional moving company to lessen the load.

Why you need a professional moving company
Contrary to popular belief, hiring a professional moving company saves you money in the long run. You will not have to bear the cost of packing materials such as bubble wraps and cardboard boxes. The professional movers will provide this and more at a relatively affordable rate.
Added to that, your valuables will be insured and safely packed. The right auto movers will have the appropriate expertise and equipment to ensure proper handling of your prized possessions. It doesn’t matter whether it is jewelry or artwork. To that end, be sure to point out what belongings will require special handling.
Professional movers tend to be way more efficient and organized compared to packing things yourself with the help of friends and family. The reality is, you will end up with mustached boxes if you go the DIY way. This will make the unpacking process cumbersome. To avoid such mishaps, it’s better to rely on professional movers who ensure all your belongings are properly tagged and in the proper place.
How to find the best moving company?
The best way to find a reputable moving company is by doing an extensive search online. If this fails, you can ask around for suggestions from family and friends. Keep in mind that there are quite a number of moving companies in Foley City and not all have your best interests at heart. Some are just out to make a quick buck.
Here are 10 things you need to consider before tying your fate to any moving company.
