Lake Charles State To State Moving Services

Lake Charles Long Distance Moving Companies

Relocating to a new home is thrilling. Whether you’re moving across town or across the country, it’s a great chance for a fresh start and new experiences. To make your move interesting and enjoyable, you should consider hiring professionals. When preparing to move to Lake Charles, A-1 Auto Transport, Louisiana, will be with you every step of the way. We focus on your move so that you can focus on other things. We also transport vehicles.

Tips to make moving easier

  • Visit the new area to familiarize yourself with the new surroundings. Find entertainment spots, medical centers, recreational facilities and shopping areas to help you settle comfortably.
  • If you have young kids, it’s wise to look for a babysitter on moving day. It’s risky for the kids to play around with all the activities going on. You’ll also be busy showing the movers where specific items need to go, and the kids may distract you.
  • Set up services before moving into your new house. Contact your utility companies’ weeks before moving to transfer the services to your new place. This ensures you move into a house with electricity, water, and internet.
  • Make sure you gather enough boxes to pack your stuff. The boxes should be strong enough to support your items. Remember to pack light by keeping the weight below 20kgs.
  • Fill out the Change of Address form at your local post office or online. This way, your mail will be forwarded to your new address, thus ensuring that you don’t miss out on any important notifications from your bank and other business associates.

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 hire a professional moving company

  • No hidden costs: Professional movers only charge you depending on the weight of your items or the distance of your move. All the expenses are factored in and calculated to give you an accurate cost. The movers are upfront with the cost of their services, and you don’t have to worry about hidden charges.
  • Safety of your items: When moving, you want your belongings to get to your new house in the condition they were in before the move. Professional movers make this possible. They are trained to pack efficiently and with care to ensure your items are delivered safely. They will make sure everything is accounted for after the move.
  • Experience: There’s nothing as important as hiring a highly experienced moving company when moving. They know all the ins and outs of moving and will take care of the moving process professionally. This is their area of expertise and will come prepared to deal with any obstacles that may arise. They will make sure your move progresses without any complications.
  • Equipment: Heavy items such as the fridge and sofa may pose a danger if you attempt to move them, especially down the stairs. When you hire a professional moving company, they use modern equipment which simplifies their work and makes it safe to move items of any size or shape.

How to find a trustworthy mover

Research the moving company you intend to hire to find out their scope of coverage, the type of services offered and their moving rates. You want a company that knows the routes you’ll be covering well enough to avoid inconveniences along the way.

Visit the Better Business Bureau to check if your mover is listed. The BBB endorses moving companies that consistently deliver services of high standards. Companies are also ranked according to their performances. The higher the ranking, the better the services.

Yelp is especially useful if you’re looking for companies in your locality. The site provides reviews from previous customers. The reviews are honest, and you can use the information to determine which company to hire. Other sites worth checking out include TrustLink and

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!
