Independence State To State Moving Services

Independence Long Distance Moving Companies

One proven way of having a memorable move is hiring professionals to help you. At A-1 Auto Transport, Kentucky, we are committed to making sure that your move is enjoyable. Every move whether big or small is handled uniquely and carried out with perfection. So, if you are planning a move to Independence, we are here for you. We also relocate vehicles.

Top 5 moving tips

  • Work with a list. Writing down everything you need to accomplish before the big day helps you get organized. Prioritize what needs to be done first as you work your way downwards.
  • You will need plenty of boxes before you start packing. Consider getting brand new boxes with firm edges to avoid chances of exposing your items to bugs or chemicals.
  • Make sure your items fit into a box before sealing it. Carrying boxes with items hanging out will cause damages, or you’ll end up losing some of them.
  • When labeling, make sure you indicate where the boxes should be placed. Write a brief description of what’s contained in each box to make it easier when unloading at your new house.
  • Your cleaning supplies should be packed last. You may need to clean your current house before moving out. You may also need to clean the toilet and bathroom when you arrive at your new house. Make sure the supplies are packed in a plastic bag to prevent leakages.

Why you should consider a professional moving company

Professional packing

Packing takes nearly half of the time during the moving process. It can be quite expensive considering all the supplies you require. Hiring a professional moving company saves you the hassle of sourcing for packing materials. Movers are trained to pack fast and utilize any available space efficiently. They make sure everything fits and even have boxes custom-made for fragile items like glassware.

Familiarity with your region

When you hire a professional mover, they do a thorough recon of your locality to determine the best routes and neighborhoods to dispatch your items. They make sure to follow the rules of the region they are operating in to avoid any inconveniences.

Storage options

If, for instance, you need your possessions moved before you, professional movers will provide storage facilities which are safe and secure. You get to choose the duration you wish your items stored and they will offer you flexible payment options. The facilities are climate controlled to keep your items in good conditions.

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.

Financial control

Professional movers are required to give free moving estimates to their clients. Their charges are based on the type of services you need and the size of your move. With the estimates, you can plan your budget effectively and avoid overspending.

How to find a reliable moving company

Start by asking your friends, family or co-workers. They will give suggestions of companies you can pick to help you move. Getting recommendations from someone you know saves a lot of time. Check out the suggested companies before settling on the best.

Beware of moving companies that charge upfront before the move. A reputable mover will only ask for payment when the items are delivered to their destination, and you’ve confirmed that everything arrived in perfect condition.

Consider finding a mover certified by AMSA. The American Moving and Storage Association requires all moving companies to go through a screening process to check for any criminal records or misconduct. They only allow companies that have complied with the federal regulations.

Check if the company you intend to hire has legal documents. If you’re moving long distance, the mover should have a USDOT Number issued by FMCSA. If it’s a local move, make sure the mover has a DVR license.

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!
