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.
