Hire A Mover Versus Asking Friends And Family For Help

While making a move, there are number of things you should take into consideration. This includes whether you should hire a mover or ask your friends and family for help. Understandably, you may want that personal touch during your move. You may also be averse to having strangers handle your items and prefer to have people you trust. However, with A1 Auto Transport, your goods are in safe hands. We are that reliable and trusted long distance mover that many have come to trust.

Situations in which you can ask friends and family for help

  • When you have able-bodied friends and family who are committed to helping you make the move.
  • The move covers a reasonable distance that is not too far for those assisting you.
  • The move does not involve a lot of back and forth movement that may inconvenience them.
  • The goods that you are moving are not fragile or highly valuable.

Situations in which it is best to hire a mover

  • You are moving over a long distance and want to make a single trip, rather than making many trips. A reputable long distance mover will do their best to make the move effortless for you.
  • You are working with a tight schedule and need to make the move quickly.
  • The goods that you are moving require an expert to handle them.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods nationwide. Call 888-509-3213 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.

Cost Of Moving House

Benefits of hiring a mover

  • Insurance: The moving company is expected to have the basic carrier liability. Therefore, a percentage of your property will be insured and should the mover damage any of your belongings, they will be liable. This is much better compared to making your relationship with your family and friends awkward should they happen to drop or break your possessions by accident.
  • Expertise: The moving company is more experienced and will have the necessary tools and resources to handle any challenge that may arise while handling or moving your belongings.
  • Speed: While families and friends may be tied down by their schedules and unable to meet set timelines, moving companies will not disappoint. A professional moving team will also handle your request quickly and help you move with ease.
  • Capability: Whereas family and friends may be willing to assist you, they may be limited in their ability to handle the tough aspects of your move. On the other hand, this is the specialty of the mover and they are capable of handling your request.

By hiring the services of a mover, you will pay for exemplary moving services from qualified professionals. This cost is nothing given that it enables you to keep your priceless bonds, with family and friends, intact. As always, it is best to request for quotes from moving companies and to clarify if there are any hidden costs. Have peace of mind and enjoy a stress-free move by hiring such services. You however, must conduct extensive research and undertake due diligence while looking for a moving company. Ensure that they are a member of the American Moving and Storage Association.

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!

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.
