Michigan Technological University Moving Services

🇺🇸 Houghton - Houghton, Michigan (MI) 49931

Moving is a subject approached with dread by most people as it is considered a daunting process. Despite this universal fear of moving, people still move every year with America recording at least 17% of its entire population moving every year. Moreover, hundreds of thousands of Americans will move to have a simpler commute to work, or to live in a better neighborhood. Students, however, move for completely different reasons. The main reason that students will move is after high school graduation to join a university like Michigan Technological University or after graduating from university. Most student moves are long distance or cross country moves. We at A-1 Auto Transport have been in the relocation business for over twenty years in Michigan and all over the country with great success; therefore you can trust us with your move.

How to achieve a stress-free student move

Moving needs not be a daunting and stressful process if you follow these tried and tested moving tips.

  • Set a move date: It is important that you set a date when you shall be moving. This action will help you to plan all your moving tasks with a goal in mind. Furthermore, it will help you to secure any moving services you may need in good enough time to avoid a last-minute rush.
  • Budget: As you will find out, moving is a costly affair, one which needs to be budgeted for. Write down everything that needs to be paid for or bought and come up with an estimate that you can budget around.
  • Decide how you will move: You should make a decision early enough on how you plan to move . If you are doing a DIY move, then you should begin your preparations early enough. If you plan on hiring a mover, which is what we would recommend, you should book them well in advance.

Why you should consider hiring a professional moving company

The reason why most people find moving a daunting process is they do not handle the entire move well enough. A professional moving company is best placed to handle your move well because of the reasons listed below.


Professional movers like us have a wealth of experience which they have garnered over the years. Furthermore, our experience is valuable because we have handled all kinds of moves; therefore nothing is new to us.


Professional movers are able to employ different and new methods to handle difficult tasks such as maneuvering bulky furniture and heavy items through narrow doorways and stairways. We are never stuck without a solution to even the most challenging moving task.


You can count on movers to be available on the day of moving as agreed upon on the contract. Even if one of the moving crew falls ill suddenly, we are able to replace them without inconveniencing your move.

Tips for finding the most suitable student mover

Finding a suitable moving company can be a daunting task especially if you have no idea where to start. These smart tips should get you on the right path to hiring the best university mover.

  • Research reviews: Find out what the internet has to say about the movers you may be considering. Consider looking at credible review sites like the Better Business Bureau . If a company has a string of complaints, it is best to give them a wide berth.
  • Ask the local realtor: Realtors work closely with moving companies due to the nature of their business, so they are best placed to give you an honest review of the local moving companies.
  • Interview the companies: Professional movers have their contact information displayed prominently on their websites. Contact them and ask very specific questions about your move to see how much they know about student moves.

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!
