How To Find The Best Full Service Movers

When you’re assessing full service moving companies, it’s not always easy to separate the good from the bad. Luckily, there are some simple steps you can take to ensure that you find the best fit for your moving needs. In this article, we’ll outline a step-by-step process for finding the right option to meet your requirements and deliver your items safely and securely to your new home or business.

The first step in finding a reliable moving company that can do it all is to understand what your moving needs are. There’s a host of options at your disposal when hiring movers and knowing exactly the type of service you need can save both time and money. Here are some of the most commonly requested moving services you’re likely to be offered by professional movers.

  • Commercial or residential moving
  • White glove moving services
  • Furniture disassembly and reassembly
  • Packing and loading
  • Short term storage units
  • Supplemental insurance coverage
  • Special equipment for heavy & oversize items

As you can see from the list above, there’s a lot to choose from! Different services have different price points so being aware of exactly the type of moving help you need can go a long way toward making the process easier. For example, if you need packing help, as well as furniture breakdown and reassembly, those carry an additional cost beyond standard moving.

Once you know what type of moving services you need, it’s easy to get a number of competing quotes from almost any moving company. Before you do that, however, you need to figure out which moving companies to consider. The best way to go about this is to explore the website for a mover and see if they offer what you need. Not only that, but you should also be able to glean their level of professionalism and experience—two factors you should not undersell when considering prospective moving companies.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods to any location or city, nationwide. Call 888-509-3213 if you’d like a FREE no obligation price quote for full service moving! Our staff is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to answer your questions and help guide you through the moving process!

Follow Up Steps To Finding A Reputable & Professional Mover

After determining your moving needs and considering the information they provide about their company, it’s time to dig in and look for customer reviews, ratings, and recommendations. There’s several resources you can use for this step, including online ratings, experiences from previous customers, and consumer websites like the Better Business Bureau. Perhaps the most helpful resource available is the mover selection tool from the FMCSA, which oversees the industry in terms of licensing, operating authority, and safety standards.

The final step in the process is to contact the best options you’ve considered and get a cost estimate. Price quotes are free of charge and do not require any sort of payment or agreement—this is an important thing to remember. If a moving company asks for payment or contractual agreement before giving you a price, it’s time to move on to other options. It’s recommended that you call a company for an estimate as this can give you another way to gain an understanding of how they treat their customers.

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!
