Marshalltown State To State Moving Services

Marshalltown Long Distance Moving Companies

Moving should be fun and hiring a professional moving company will help you achieve your moving goals easier. If you have planned a move to Marshalltown, consider hiring a local moving company. A-1 Auto Transport is based in Iowa and has been serving its residents for over 25 years. We offer different types of moving services including vehicle transport.

Top 5 moving tips

  • Downsize your household items. Don’t be afraid to let go of things that are past their usefulness. Decide what to keep and what you don’t need. Moving with fewer items will ease your work and reduce your moving cost.
  • Start packing as soon as possible. Packing two boxes a day will greatly reduce your workload without tiring you out. Since you have plenty of time, make sure nothing important is left behind.
  • Label your boxes correctly indicating the contents and the rooms where each box should be taken. This will make it easy for the movers when unloading and even easier for you when unpacking.
  • Prepare for the unexpected. Pack a bag of essential items that you’ll need when you arrive at your new place. You might not be able to settle right away hence having a change of clothes, toiletries, a few utensils and snacks will help you get through the night without stress.
  • Get in touch with your utility companies in advance to have your services switched to your new house. This is necessary to ensure you move into a house that’s connected with electricity, water, and gas.

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 moving company?

  • Professional services: When moving by yourself, there are things you might overlook which may have a negative effect on your move. But professional movers ensure everything is taken care of. They plan accordingly and ensure you receive the highest quality services. They will advise you on the best strategies to make your move a little easier.
  • Skills and expertise: When you choose the full-service pack, professional movers will pack, load, unload and unpack your household items. They use their skills and training to pack efficiently utilizing space efficiently. They pack neatly and safely ensuring that your items get to your destination as quickly as possible.
  • Budget: Hiring a professional moving company will help you plan your budget effectively. They send in their experts to evaluate your belongings and provide a quote. This way, you know exactly how much you’re going to spend hence you're able to make the necessary arrangements.

How to find the right moving company

Get everything in writing - the date of moving, the moving estimates, and the details of your move. Never sign a contract before reading the fine print. Some movers include hidden charges that you’ll only be made aware of when it’s time to pay.

Ask around from friends and co-workers who have previously moved. They will recommend a few companies that you may consider. Research on these companies to ensure they fit your preferences before hiring them.

Look up companies on the Better Business Bureau. Consumers leave positive or negative comments depending on their experience with moving companies. The reviews will help you determine which company to hire and the ones to avoid.

Check the legal documents of a moving company to ensure they are valid and up-to-date. Never hire a mover that is not licensed by the FMCSA. Interstate movers are issued with a USDOT Number which they must display on their trucks and websites. Local movers need to have permits from the states they operate in.

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!
