Best Iowa Long Distance & Interstate Moving Companies

One of the most frustrating experiences in life is moving day. There is always so much to do and so much to remember. There are boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, borrowed pickup trucks, and reluctant friends who couldn’t think of an excuse to get out of helping. At best, it is inefficient, awkward, and just plain stressful. At worst, it results in a bunch of broken things, gouges in the drywall from bulky furniture and a little bit of quiet sobbing. There is no need to put yourself through this kind of trouble just to move your house out of Iowa. You can hire a professional moving company to help you get everything from point A to point B while you take care of transferring records, and shutting off utilities. All you have to do is show up, and the truck with your things will be waiting there for you.

Choosing Your Iowa Long Distance Movers

Choosing a moving company can be scary. You are trusting them with all your worldly possessions, after all. If you do your research beforehand you will know that the company you chose are trustworthy and conscientious.

  • Level of experience: Is this company a couple of guys who bought a used van last week, or is it a group of trained professionals with years of experience in the industry. Find out before you hire them.
  • How much will the company’s insurance cover if there is breakage: The law only requires moving companies to cover $0.60 per pound, but some will offer more coverage like full replacement cost or depreciated value.
  • Look at reviews and testimonials: The internet can be a great resource for researching what kind of reputation a company has. Look at sites like Yelp to help you determine if they have a history of excellence.
  • Department of Transportation: All movers who operate between different states must be registered with the federal government and have a U.S. DOT number. Make sure if you are moving out of state that the company you choose is in compliance of these laws.
  • BBB approval: Movers recognized by the Better Business Bureau often have a wonderful reputation.
  • Additional services: Check which services the company offers and how much extra they cost. You may want to take advantage of a packing and unpacking service, for example. It also helps to know ahead of time if moving your piano will cost you more.

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.

How Much Will It Cost To Hire My Iowa Long Distance Movers?

Cost can vary greatly depending your needs. The distance you need to move, the weight of your possessions, and what additional services you have chosen will affect the total cost. Other factors that can contribute to the final total are fuel costs and whether or not you are moving during the company’s busy season. Be sure to call for an accurate free estimate.

Before Signing with a Mover

  • Check and double check all addresses and phone numbers. You wouldn’t want to have your belongings delivered to the wrong address because you didn’t check.
  • Look at the liability and insurance policy concerning lost or damaged items. Make sure it is listed clearly.
  • All costs and additional service charges should be clearly spelled out on the contract.

Things to Do before Moving

  • It is always a good idea to transport valuable items yourself rather than leave it up to the movers.
  • The company should keep a list of inventory that gets loaded onto the truck. Ask for a copy for your records.
  • Your homeowner’s insurance policy may cover any damages. Check before moving day.

International Moving Services in Iowa

If you’re going to move in a few weeks, it’s important to start organizing your belongings’ transport now. The longer you wait, the more likely it will be for complications to appear and for movers to add on fees for the late notice.

Booking the move early will also give you more freedom to choose how everything will be handled. Perhaps, you can’t afford to have the company pack everything. You may want to do it on your own.

Regardless of your plans, we can accommodate you. We can even provide the packing materials while you take care of the packing itself. Of course, our experience will ensure everything is perfectly prepared if you allow us to intervene.

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!
