Manhattan State To State Moving Services

Manhattan Long Distance Moving Companies

Each year thousands of people move to new cities. Some move in search of jobs while others move for education purposes. Moving to Manhattan? A-1 Auto Transport has all the resources you need for a seamless move. Based in Kansas, we provide services that are designed to cater to the needs of every individual. We will help you pack and unpack and make sure you’re fully settled. We also relocate vehicles.

Top moving tips

  • Start packing early. This is a long and tiresome process that can be overwhelming if you wait until the last minute. Pack at least two boxes a day, and you’ll be surprised at your progress as moving day approaches.
  • Don’t forget communication is important; change your address through the USPS portal. Forwarding your mail ensures that you continue receiving bank statements and your monthly magazine subscriptions among other documents.
  • Create an inventory of your belongings. This is important and will help you account for any missing items when they are delivered to your new place. If your mover takes their inventory, ask for a copy to compare with yours to make sure nothing has been left out.
  • Label your boxes in a way that they can easily be identified when they are stacked. You can use a color coding system where different colors represent different rooms. Mark the boxes with stickers of the corresponding colors to make it easy for the movers when unloading.
  • Have your utilities turned off at your current house and turned on at your new home. This way you won't pay for bills you haven’t used. You also move into a house that is already connected with electricity, internet, and water.

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 hire a professional mover?

  • Efficiency: Even if you decide to move on your own, you won’t pack as fast and efficiently as a professional moving company. They are trained for this job and have the right packing materials to keep your items safe. They know how to handle fragile stuff like vases and paintings and will make sure they are promptly delivered.
  • Cost-effective: Professional movers have a system they follow when calculating the cost of moving. The expenses are captured in one place, and you are charged either hourly or a fixed bill. Since the calculations are based on predetermined facts, you are given an accurate cost that you only pay once the items are delivered.
  • Resourcefulness: When moving on your own, there are items you can’t lift or carry even with the help of friends. They are probably too bulky to fit through your narrow doorway or too heavy to be carried down the stairs. However, with professional movers, this is a piece of cake. They have the right tools and equipment to handle heavy pieces of furniture and safely load them into the trucks.
  • Protection: With a professional moving company, your items are insured. They are trained to handle your belongings with utmost care and protect them from any damage. In case of an accident, you can rest easy knowing that you’ll be compensated.

Ways to find a reliable mover

Check the Better Business Bureau website for any claims or complaints filed against the mover you intend to hire. This information will tell you a lot about their professionalism. If the majority of people served by the company have complained, it means the company does not provide services you can rely on.

Ask the moving company you are interested in for referrals. A reliable mover should provide you with a list of customers they have moved so that you can contact them and get the information you need. Referrals offer the best leads since you’re getting firsthand information.

Get the insights from past customers by reading online reviews from trusted sites like Angie’s List and TrustLink. Reading the comments of other customers will give you valuable details regarding the services of a particular moving company. If there are any complaints, it will be especially important to find out how they were resolved.

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!
