Why you need a professional company

Affordability

Moving companies work with a well formulated budget. They include all items and situations in the estimate. This ensures unforeseen circumstances such as extreme weather, road accidents or heavy traffic can’t result in additional expenses.

Movers have moving managers and consultants whose job is to ensure the move is done at a fair cost. They ensure that by:

  • Reducing the time taken to conduct a move
  • Optimum safety to all items
  • Handling any challenge immediately before it results in additional expenses

In case damage occurs, the company has insurance for all the items. This ensures the customer can never lose when using a moving company.

Moving companies also enjoy economies of scale by dealing with huge volumes. They have trucks that can move a behemoth of items in a single trip. This saves on fuel while reducing risks that may occur along the way. Consolidating loads also results in a 10-15% price reduction in the total charge.

Safety

Since moving companies have handled thousands of moves before, they know all the eventualities that could crop up. They then apply mechanization and professional training to safely move the items.

Moving companies have personnel that can handle any type of item. They have skills to pack, load and transport your items. This ensures every stage of the moving process is handled by a professional who works safely and promptly.

Moving companies use drivers who have thousands of driving hours under their belt. The drivers know the terrain in and out. They use real-time satellite technology to avoid extreme weather and high traffic. They work in shifts to stay alert.

Tips to make your move easy

Label all the items and ensure all queries have been answered by the mover including how to move specialized items. Ask for free moving tips from the expert.

Organize a yard sale for items you no longer require. You can also donate them to Goodwill or friends who help with your move. It increases the hauling efficiency while reducing the moving charge.

Rent moving supplies from U-Haul at subsidized rates or get free corrugated boxes from Freecycle.com. Fumigate the boxes and make holes along the sides for easy handling.

Smartly pack the items. Use small boxes for heavy items and large boxes for light items.

Separate personal items and move them yourself. Utilities such as cooking essentials, toiletries and clothes can be packed in a suitcases or trash bags.

Begin packing weeks in advance. Start with non-essential items as you progress to everyday items. Packing accounts for 40% of the total moving cost. Use mobile packing apps to reduce the time and money used.

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!
