Long distance moves can easily cost a ton of money, especially if you choose to carry out the relocation on your own. Most movers will charge by the mile so that they can cover the cost of fuel and other expenses while on the road. If you chose to rent a truck, you would still be charged by the mile. In fact, you’d likely be charged more per mile just for the truck rental. When you hire a moving company for long distance relocation, you are getting much more for your money, plus the guarantee of a safe and timely relocation.
The cost of a long distance move can range drastically but assuming you’re charged around a $1.00 per mile along with the other charges included in your final cost for moving services, moving out of state will cost somewhere around $1,000 per room. Some movers will charge by the hour and in this case, expect to pay about $25 to $50 per hour of labor and add a few more hundred to that total to cover the other charges that will be included into your total.
The insurance coverage provided by the mover is their way of assuring the safe delivery of all your belongings. Every state determines the amount of insurance required for moving companies to carry. In most cases, this is about $0.60 per pound of a customer’s things. This may not protect the entire value of your stuff but it is protection you wouldn’t otherwise have if you chose to move your belongings without professional assistance.

Many movers will allow their customers to purchase additional insurance coverage. This is usually just a small charge and it is well worth it for anyone with long distance relocation ahead of them. Although accidents aren’t typical of an experienced long distance mover, it is wise to make sure that the value of your things is protected during the relocation process just in case.
There are several ways to save money during your relocation. You can package your things on your own which will reduce the cost of your moving services. You can also take advantage of alternative packing materials such as linens, newspaper, recycled boxes (gather them from local shops), and other similar materials that will keep your belongings protected during the move.
Another way to save and earn money at the same time is by holding a garage sale. Sort through your things, before they are packed away by you or the mover. Gather the things you no longer want but that can still be of use to someone else. Hold a garage sale to try and rid of some of your stuff. This will put cash in your pocket and lighten the weight of your stuff that must be transported to the new location. If any of your things don’t sell, donate them.

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.
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!
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 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!
