Why a professional move is better than a self-move

  • Convenience: Moving companies ensure you have extra time to yourself. They deal with the organization, planning and heavy lifting. This ensures you can handle other moving activities like cancelling subscriptions and scoping the new area at your convenient time. Movers also have services like packing, pet transport and house arrangement. This ensures you can carry on with your regular routine without seeking time off.
  • Professionalism: Professional movers work with an efficient plan. They are disciplined and follow the rules to the letter. The personnel is highly trained and aware of their roles. This ensures zero delays and confusion along the moving process. Moving companies provide signed documents with each transaction they handle. The walk-through and estimate have been properly documented which confirms no shady deals take place. The company wraps the items and packs them in quality corrugated boxes. They have advanced equipment which helps with moving items fast. They use respectable language and are easily identifiable by the tags on their uniforms.
  • Valuable and fragile items: Moving companies have the resources to handle valuable and bulky items like pool tables and pianos. The items are moved by professionally trained personnel to ensure maximum safety and speedy deliveries. The company also has equipment like dollies and trolleys that move delicate items packed in corrugated boxes. Fragile items like glassware are wrapped with soft clothing and packed alongside anti-static peanut. The items are loaded on top of heavy items and separated by cushions like matresses or stuffed laundry bins. The items are delivered by professional drivers using modified vehicles. They know the terrain well which ensures they avoid dangerous situations and potential delays.

Use the USDOT at FMCSA to check on the licensing, registration and insurance status of a moving company.

Make your move successful with simple tips

Choose the most reliable moving company and schedule a moving date. Avoid moving during the months of May to September.

Establish that a company representative visits to conduct a walk-through and gives a thorough estimate.

Downsize your move to increase the hauling efficiency while reducing the moving cost. Organize a yard sale for items you don’t need and donate the rest to your friends or Goodwill.

Reduce the expenses by dismantling large furniture and placing all packed items in strategic locations before the company arrives.

Scope the new premises before moving in. Familiarize yourself with the amenities and new neighbours. It helps you adjust easily to the new environment.

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!
