Moving Checklist

Once you know you are going to move, it is important to come up with a moving checklist which will help you have a less stressful move:

Cheap Best Moving Helpers Kettering Oh

Eight weeks in advance

  • Reach out to your friends and family to get referrals for local movers who are capable of managing your move.
  • Get a moving binder that will contain all the moving information – estimates and documents from different companies, moving inventory, emergency contacts at the new locations etc.
  • Contact each of the referrals and request them for an in-house survey and a written moving estimate.
  • Do a thorough background search on your shortlisted movers. Your search should entail finding out information on their registration status with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Check their ratings on different platforms and confirm that they are members of the American Moving and Storage Association.

Six weeks in advance

  • Using the information you have gathered about the different movers, choose which company you will work with and book the moving date. Ensure you receive all documents in writing and as a rule of thumb, never sign blank or incomplete documents.
  • Purchase or acquire moving supplies such as packing boxes, tape, marker pens etc.
  • Start sorting and identifying which items you will move with and which ones will be donated, trashed or sold. Use this opportunity to prepare your moving inventory and to downsize. Make sure that you keep your valuables and other personal items together because it is advisable that you transport them yourself.

Three weeks in advance

  • Cut back on your food purchase so that you will not have to waste or give away lot of food. Also, make efforts to clear up what you already have because food items are not allowed in long distance moves.
  • Contact all your current utility providers and cancel or transfer the utilities. Also, ensure that you contact utility providers in the new location to set up the services for you for those that you are not transferring.
  • Make changes to your administrative details such as acquiring a new driving license or getting a new postal address.
  • Check with your mover to confirm that your moving date is still reserved and to inform them of any possible changes with your booking.
  • Ensure you get a refill for any medication that you might need within the first few weeks of your travel.

One week in advance

  • If packing any items, make sure that you finish all necessary packing.
  • Prepare an essentials box that will carry any items you will need up until the end of the delivery window.
  • Declare any high value items that will be under your mover; it is very important to do so in writing.

Moving day

  • Be there to guide and supervise the moving team.
  • Countercheck the mover’s inventory and sign off each page after the pickup.

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!
