Mentor State To State Moving Services

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.

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!
