Packing Moving Storage Companies

If you’re facing a long distance move, one of the best way to alleviate the stress and hustle of the process is to hire a full service moving company. It’s easy to scoff at the idea of hiring movers—we all like to save a buck or two when we can—but sometimes it gets lost in the shuffle just how easy a moving company can make the transition, as well as how affordable it can be. Believe it or not, there are affordable long distance movers that can get you moved and settled at a comparable cost as if you were to do it yourself.

Full Service Moving Companies & What They Do

Some of the services provided by full service moving companies are obvious. At the very least any moving company you hire should move your furniture and boxes into the truck, drive to your new home, and unload everything for you. However, a full service mover can offer a lot more than that. Anything from providing supplies like boxes, bubble wrap, and packing tape to helping you pack, disassemble furniture, and offer storage if needed—these are all services that a full end-to-end moving company is capable of providing. They can even help you with the transport of appliances and furniture placement in your new home, all of which add up to less work for you and an easier transition as you handle the less labor intensive aspects of relocating. Some moving companies (this one included) can even help you with vehicle shipping if you need a car shipped along with your household items.

A-1 Auto Transport provides a la carte and full service moving options for any type of move to any city in the U.S. If you need affordable, professional moving services, from just driving the truck to handling every aspect of your move, call us today for a FREE estimate! Our staff is available 24 hours per day, 7 days a week! Call us at 888-241-3110 for a FREE price quote today!

Cost To Have Movers Move You

How To Prepare For Full Service Movers

Preparing for a full service move is simple considering the movers will be handling the bulk of the work. That doesn’t mean that no preparation is required as you still have to make sure things are ready to go when they arrive. Cleaning the house before movers arrive is a good idea for a couple of reasons. Number one, there will be less clutter to deal with when they are moving dressers and couches around corners and through hallways, making the process itself run more smoothly. Secondly, it will save you time when you have to do a more thorough cleaning after the house or apartment is empty, which is required on almost every lease, rental agreement, or home sale.

Another phase of preparation that can be very useful is to get rid of any excess, whether that means simply de-cluttering your home, or getting rid of things, including furniture, that you don’t use. If you’re downsizing to a smaller living space, it’s even more pertinent that you take steps to be ready for the change. The two easiest ways of accomplishing this, which most people are aware of, is to have a garage sale to get rid of the excess and then donate anything left over that’s unnecessary to a charitable organization such as the Salvation Army or Goodwill. Remember that yard sales and donations do take time too so give yourself enough wiggle room to do what’s needed; another good reason to have a game plan and a moving checklist to help keep your organized.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ 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.

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... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
