Merced State To State Moving Services

Merced Long Distance Moving Companies

The City of Merced presents affordable housing and education facilities in Merced County, Central California. The town is quiet and unpolluted with a pleasant atmosphere for working and raising a family. The cost of living is relatively low. Are you about to move to or from Merced? Without a solid plan, relocation can become a nightmare. You need professional help from California movers to make your Merced move an exciting experience.

We also provide vehicle relocation services.

How to Make Your Move Easier

The things you do once you decide to move determine how smooth the process becomes. Start packing early. Check all the rooms for clutter and sort it to identify what you need. You can take what you don’t need to donation drop off centers in your region and toss the rest.

Choose a moving company from your locality and describe your requirements. Let their agents evaluate the scale of your move before settling for a moving cost. Choose the right day for your relocation as there are different prices for various seasons, and movers are sometimes unavailable.

If your movers provide moving supplies, ask them to sort you out. They will make the best approximation, and some may take back surplus boxes. A full-service is even better as the company provides all the necessary materials and labor at once.

Prepare your new premises by cleaning it and having any defects fixed. Scope out the new spaces including passageways to ensure that everything will fit. Pictures and scale diagrams of rooms can help your movers determine the best house arrangement beforehand.

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 You Need a Professional Moving Company

The most important aspect of professional movers is reliability. They get the job done without excuses. Once you have a contract with them, they commit themselves to the plan. Friends can fail you at critical moments forcing you to postpone the relocation.

Moving involves a lot of lifting and carrying which can cause injury. Not everyone is capable of high-energy tasks. Professional movers provide a crew with specialized equipment for towing and raising heavy objects effortlessly. They also secure your possessions in the moving truck and cover them with heavy-duty wraps to protect them from dust and scratches.

If you want a move with negligible risk, hire a professional moving company. Trained movers handle fragile and bulky items carefully and adequately to prevent damage and to ensure that no one gets hurt. They also provide insurance just in case something gets broken.

When moving on your own, you have to determine the costs yourself. A wrong estimate can cause severe inconveniences to your move. Moving companies spare you this headache by providing one moving quote for the entire process.

Finding a Reliable Moving Company

The primary source of trusted movers is your family members and colleagues. You can also research on the internet. The company should have years of experience in the transport industry, and they should have a good reputation. You can check this from online reviews.

The moving company should have a USDOT number and be insured and bonded. This license identifies passenger and cargo carriers in the United States. To verify the compliance of your movers, enter their details in the SAFER System.

Be sure of how the company handles damages. Some may offer the depreciated value while others provide the cost of replacement. The minimum coverage as per the government is $0.6 per pound.

Hire from your region for ease of contact. You may want to visit the offices to determine if the company is capable. Check the trucks for their general condition and proper labeling.

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!
