A-1 Long Distance Moving & Storage

 Any time you need to move, one of the best things you can do is partner with an experienced moving company--something that is even more important if you're moving long distance and need storage. The reason this is the case is that long distance moving can be more complex due to the requirement that the mover have operating authority throughout all the states your belongings are being transported through. As far as storage, an established company will be far more likely to help you coordinate storage in various parts of the country. 

How To Find A Long Distance Mover With Appropriate Experience

There are two distinct aspects of finding a long distance mover with enough experience to handle the job professionally and capably. The first is establishing how long they've been in business and the second is checking to make sure they operate in the areas in which you'll need service. 

Determining how long a moving company has been in business can be tricky since it's not typically listed on official company reports from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration or the U.S. Department of Transportation. Since this is the case, there are two things you can do. The first is to call them and ask how long they've been in business and if there's a place online where you can find customer reviews. Many company review sites will have dated reviews, which can give you a good indication of how long they've been in operation. 

As far as areas of operation, any moving company that claims to operate throughout the U.S. or internationally should have dedicated web pages that mention those places and, ideally, office locations in the areas you're moving to or from. The FMCSA website has a search tool you can use to verify a company is who they say they are and to find information about insurance coverage, safety ratings, and other pertinent information that can help you make a decision. 

A Mover’s Storage Solutions

As for storage options with a moving company, the same approach as above applies here. If a moving company has their own storage facilities, they should also have a central office in that area. If they do not, that doesn't necessarily mean they won't offer storage there, but that they may have to partner with a separate company to help with your storage needs. This is not altogether unheard of in the moving industry­--many companies have such arrangements with local storage outfits.

Full Service Moving

There are a wide selection of moving services available from most companies, perhaps even more than you may realize. While most companies offer basic moving and storage options, you may have needs that go beyond simply loading and driving a truck. With that in mind, be sure to spell out exactly what you need when you go over your options with the mover. If you need any special equipment or services, mention that up front so that you can determine if they're capable of doing what you expect, and to ensure you get the most accurate price possible. 

If you unclear about the full slate of moving options available to you, you can view our listing of services by clicking here.

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.”
