We also deal with vehicle relocation services.

Why you need a moving company

No hassle

Moving companies are very convenient. They handle the most difficult tasks ensuring that your items are safe and you aren’t injured when conducting the move. Moving companies ensure you have extra time to conduct other moving activities like changing addresses and switching supplies.

They also provide additional services such as:

  • Full-service moves (packing and unpacking included)
  • Temporary storage in accessible warehouses
  • Disassembling and reassembling furniture

They work systematically such that when some are packing, others are loading and delivering.

The right equipment

Moving companies have equipment that can safely handle all your items. They know the type of equipment to use after conducting the walk-through and it is operated by professionally trained personnel which further increases its efficiency.

Movers use quality corrugated boxes to pack items. They are strapped on the outside to ensure they can hold heavy items.

The company has dollies, ramps and jacks used to move items from the house to the moving vehicle. Dollies can move multiple stacked boxes in a single trip which could otherwise take several hands for a trip.

Straight-forward estimate

Moving companies use a true estimate when conducting long distance moves. They conduct a walk-through before providing the estimate. They include all items, labour, materials and extra fees. This is convenient since you can formulate a realistic budget.

You do not have to worry about additional fees on moving day when working with a moving company.

Search customer review sites such as Yelp and The verified sites have thousands of customer reviews. They are among the best known consumer rights advocates. They also educate the consumers about moving and recommend the best moving company.

Use the USDOT number from FMCSA to verify:

  • The safety rating from the crashes section
  • The company’s physical addresses
  • The number of trucks and drivers a company owns
  • The validity of the household items license

Ask for quotations from different moving companies and make a comparison. Compare the prices charged against the services offered. Scrutinize the estimate especially where the delivery window, payment policy and binding contract are mentioned. If you do not understand any clause, seek clarification.

Tips to make your move smooth and swift

Scope the new premises in advance. Measure the doorways and staircases to ensure your large furniture can easily fit. Make friends with the new neighbours and learn the rules and regulations.

Procure and rent moving supplies from Reduce the moving cost by exchanging and getting free moving supplies.

Downsize your move by selling items you no longer use. They reduce the hauling efficiency and increase the moving cost. Alternatively you can donate them to friends or Goodwill.

Before you begin packing, separate personal items and utilities and move them yourself. Make copies of important documents and save the rest electronically.

Change your address and update it at I am moving to reach over 1500 businesses. Also remember to notify relatives, colleagues and neighbours.

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!
