Mentor Long Distance Moving Companies

Moving across the country is done by millions of Americans each year for work, education, relationships and other reasons. In Lake County, Ohio is the city of Mentor, an outer ring suburb of Cleveland. It was one of the earliest cities inhabited by settlers in the early 18th century. Mentor has appeared several times among the top 100 best cities in the country. The sunny and warm beaches along the shores of Lake Erie attract thousands of tourists and residents each summer. The city also has parks, museums and nature reserves with picturesque sites and fun activities. If you are looking forward to a smooth move, talk to A-1 Auto Transport. We also deal with vehicle shipping.

Why you should hire a moving company

  • Specialized services. In most homes, it is common to find a king-size bed, L-couch, pianos or refrigerators. These items should be handled by moving companies with skilled personnel to avoid damage and injuries. Professional movers have capable personnel that handle bulky non-breakables such as furniture. They also use trained personnel to handle delicate and heavy items such as refrigerators.
  • Safety. Moving companies ensure safety during a move. They have handled different moves across the country and encountered different moving challenges. They also have professionally trained staff that pack your items safely using quality packing material and load them in air-cushioned carriers. Your items are delivered within your timeline by experienced drivers who are familiar with the roads and general landscape.
  • Volume. Moving a large number of household goods can be stressful. It takes much time and requires adequate moving resources. Moving companies have the resources, experience and professional training to move numerous items. They are well organized which ensures they rarely forget items or use too much time moving.

Tips to find a reliable mover in Mentor

Check trusted internet sources such as the Better Business Bureau to find moving companies. They asses moving companies’ services and accredit them accordingly. It is recommended to deal with accredited moving companies since they act under the organization’s regulations. In case of disputes, accredited movers also have to follow the organization’s recommendations.

Check the company’s customer testimonials page for the reviews of previous customers. Customers rate companies according to the quality of their customer service. A company that has numerous positive reviews with little complaints is trustworthy. Avoid moving companies that have multiple consumer complaints.

Ensure the moving company has not been implicated in any moving scams. Some moving companies change their names after many consumer complaints are leveled against them. Consumer advocacy sites such as Rip-off track the activities of moving companies and list any movers associated with scams.

Check what is required with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association before companies handle moves. The association is a subsidiary of the United States Department of Transport that regulates state to state moving companies. The basic requirements include:

  • A valid household goods moving license.
  • Base level insurance.
  • A satisfactory safety rating.
  • Adequate moving resources.

Tips to make your move smooth

  • Deal with an experienced moving company. Verify their experience by visiting their offices and ask for referrals of previous customers that they have helped move.
  • Set your moving date during winter or fall. The period is less hectic than summer due to a reduced number of people moving. Moving companies also give good deals to encourage people to move.
  • Source for adequate moving supplies months ahead. Ensure you have quality packing material such as corrugated boxes, tapes, wrappers and markers. If you want to rent moving equipment, do so months ahead since most are usually rented out.
  • Enlist friends to help with packing. Inform them beforehand so that they can plan their schedules appropriately.
  • Start packing your items at least 2-3 weeks in advance. Adequate time ensures you handle packing properly while avoiding inefficiencies like shortages.

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.”
