Lafayette Long Distance Moving Companies

Mixed emotions of anxiety and curiosity run high as you look forward to starting your life over in a new environment. Finding an experienced moving company will help you transition smoothly. When preparing for a move to Lafayette, consider hiring A-1 Auto Transport. We are based in Louisiana and have the best moving services in town. Our services include door to door moving, interstate moves and vehicle transport among others.

The best moving tips

  • Find a way to dispose of any flammable or corrosive materials safely. Your moving company cannot move these materials. Alternatively, you can give them to your neighbors or friends.
  • Cancel any local services such as cleaners, gardeners, and newspapers. This will give you time to settle any outstanding bills before moving out.
  • Find sturdy boxes to pack your household items. Start with those items that are not frequently used such as seasonal clothes. The cleaning supplies should be packed last since you might need to use them before moving out.
  • Change your address and remember to notify your relatives, business associates and bank of your impending move. This will ensure you keep receiving your monthly magazine subscriptions and credit card statements.
  • Be present on moving day to give instructions on where you want specific items like furniture placed. It will make work easier and help the movers know what to do.

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.

Why you should consider hiring a professional moving company

  • Safety: From years of experience, professional movers know the right way to pack and load your belongings to protect them from any damages. They use high-quality padding and wrapping materials to ensure your items are delivered to your new home safely.
  • Saves time: It’s difficult to plan your move while you’re still working. You will be forced to take time off work for your move to succeed. However, when you hire a professional moving company, your daily work routine won’t be interfered with. They will manage the moving process and take care of everything so that you focus on your work.
  • Convenience: Yes, you may have friends to help pack and load your household items. But who will help you unload and unpack in your new neighborhood? This is the convenience you get when you hire a professional moving company. They offer their services as a package. From packing to loading to unloading and unpacking, all will be handled without your involvement.
  • Storage services: With professional movers, you don’t have to worry where to store your items. So, in case your move was abrupt, and you didn’t have time to find a spacious house, the movers will store your items until you’re ready to pick them up. The facilities are secure, and the safety of your items is guaranteed.

Tips to find a reputable moving company

  • Moving rates: It’s easy to pick a cheap mover but when the prices seem abnormally low, beware. Get the estimates of at least three movers to get an idea of the market price. Additionally, check the policy of the moving company and only hire them if you agree with what they have to offer.
  • Insurance: Ask the mover the type of insurance options they offer. A reliable mover will advise you on the best policy to pick. Before signing any papers, make sure you read and understand everything. If you need any clarifications, don’t hesitate to ask. These are your worldly possessions, and you don’t want to lose them.
  • Research the moving company: you intend to hire to learn more about them. Make sure the company is duly licensed by the FMCSA. Interstate movers are issued a USDOT Number which should be displayed on their trucks and websites. Local movers need to have a license from the Louisiana Public Service Commission.
  • Take time to review several movers: to determine who offers the best services. Their performance ratings and comments from past customers will greatly help you make an informed decision. Don’t hire movers who have too many negative reviews.

Satisfied Customers

“I am meticulous when it comes to everything. At first, I was thinking of just driving all the way to Illinois from New Jersey. A friend recommended me to go to A1 Auto Transport and told me a lot of good things about them. I refused initially because I had filed a 4 day leave just to drive and visit my mother. But things did not go well. My boss asked me to cancel my leave because a very important client asked for an urgent meeting, and the manager could not attend to it. I was hopeless and took the risk of asking help from A1. The notice was short and I forgot I needed to inform them in advance. After a couple of hours, I received a call and they told me they found a way to book me with no extra fees. I am so thankful I got to attend to my work matters. I did not get to see my mother, but the vehicle and items inside it were in perfect condition as if it was me who took care of it. I owe you guys big time! I got one huge deal from our client.”

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“I’m so glad I met you Joe!! A truly fortunate experience. Having to transport a car to Minnesota, I was stunned to see the company, who was supposed to take care of it, just vanish. I couldn’t reach them anymore, like they went bankrupt overnight. However, I was lucky enough to not pay anything, so I simply researched some more until I found A1 Auto Transport. Joe answered my call the first time and we soon agreed on a date and a quote. Unfortunately, I got caught up in work and forgot about it. The order was not confirmed, so Joe must’ve thought I changed my mind. I called him the next day and arranged for a new date. This time, I made a note on my phone and it went well. I replied to his email this time, and the driver arrived at a parking lot down the street on time, as promised. The driver was nice enough to not mention my previous mistake. He delivered my car in just 3 days. Upon careful inspection, there were no scratches or damage done to it during transport. Joe was there along with the driver and they both waited patiently until I was satisfied. Thanks!”

“A1 Auto is kind of like your favourite mom and pop pizza parlour, the one you can’t get enough of despite all the new, expensive avant-garde pizza shops that have mushroomed conspicuously across the entire neighbourhood and seem to have taken over the whole world...but not you. Because you value quality and genuine customer service, and know this business understands and works doubly hard to give you your money’s worth. I’ve been using A1 Auto Transport whenever I left California for business: they may not be the cheapest car transporters around, but the sheer professionalism, dedication, and heart they put into their work is just amazing and worth my every dime. I’m probably one of the most sceptical people you would ever meet. I’m rarely convinced when bombarded with dubious, self-congratulating ads of companies that look like they’ve spent tons of money on marketing materials just to lure your average guy in. A1 Auto Transport is the complete opposite of these companies. My car always arrived promptly on schedule, never with a hint of scratch or dirt or damage, and they keep me updated every step of the process. When you’ve found a company whose genuine care for their customers comes naturally, you stand by them no matter what. It’s the most logical thing to do.”

“A1 Auto Transport helped me move a vehicle to Iowa from Houston. I was a bit nervous, no knowing much about such services. Thanks to Joe, I was able to clear the fog a little. He answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that left no room for interpretation. The details were straightforward. I picked Sunday as the pickup date, since I wasn’t at work, and they accommodated me. The truck arrived an hour early, yet the driver patiently waited for me to arrive. He thoroughly checked my car for scratches or anything that might affect the transport then drove it onto the truck. I was given a 2 day time window during which the car was supposed to arrive in, and it got to Iowa in the evening of the first day. The trip didn’t damage it at all. Next time a friend wants to move, I’ll surely recommend A1 Auto Transport.”
