Top 5 moving tips

  • Get rid of all items you haven’t used in more than six months. Use the various channels such as eBay or Craigslist to sell your items. Any items that can’t be sold can be donated or given away to friends.
  • Label your boxes correctly as soon as you finish packing to avoid confusion. This way, your movers will have an easy time unpacking and arranging the items in your new house.
  • If your moving company creates an inventory of your items, request a copy for your own records. The list will help you establish if any of your items are missing.
  • Change your address at the local post office or online through the USPS portal. Notify your business contacts, banks and close friends of the change so that you continue receiving important notifications.
  • If you are moving your pet, ask if the moving company provides pet transport. Pets need special care, especially if being transported over a long distance. Make sure the conditions are conducive to your pet and that you have all the documentation ready.

Benefits of hiring a professional moving company

  • Experience: The staff of a professional moving company has been moving house for many years hence mastering the art. They are ready to deal with any problems that could crop up during the move. With their training and skills, you can rest assured that your items will be delivered to your new place safely.
  • Safety and security: When you hire a professional moving company, they come equipped with the appropriate tools that will simplify your move. You’ll avoid the stress and risk of heavy lifting since the movers use special equipment to lift and carry your belongings when loading and unloading them.
  • Time-saving: To effectively carry out a move, you’ll have to take time off from work so that you organize how to transport your possessions. But with professional movers, your work schedule won’t be interrupted. They will take care of your moving plans and you can focus on your work.
  • Reduce stress: Professional movers will handle everything from packing to loading to unloading your household items. You don’t have to ask for help from your friends. The movers are capable of planning and executing your moving process without you lifting a finger.

How to find a reliable moving company

A reliable mover should provide moving insurance for your belongings. Items get damaged during a move and hiring an insured moving company will guarantee the safety of your items. Verify the insurance status of your moving company with the Licensing and Insurance Public.

Be sure to ask if the moving company you intend to hire is well equipped to carry out the move comfortably. A local company will be easy to investigate since you can visit them and assess their equipment and trucks. Don’t settle for less. Your items are valuable and you have to be certain you’re hiring the right moving company.

Check if your moving company has complied with the federal and state regulations. Ask to be provided with their license for verification purposes. The FMCSA licenses moving companies and issues a specific 11-digit number that permits long distance movers to cross the border lines. If it’s a move across the city, ask if the mover has a valid license from the Indiana Department of Revenue.

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!
