Tips to make your move easier

  • Label your boxes correctly indicating the contents and the rooms each box is destined for. This will help you and your movers know how to handle the boxes and make unpacking easier.
  • Have your furniture and electrical appliances cleaned and serviced before moving. A clean fridge and dust free bookshelves will make it easy when unpacking and arranging your new house.
  • Change your address to continue receiving your monthly magazine subscriptions and credit card statements. Remember to notify your bank and relevant business contacts of your intentions to move.
  • If you own a pet, you might want to ask your neighbor or friend to take watch it while you move. Pets may become too excited with a change of environment and may cause distractions to the movers. If you are moving with your pet, find out the regulations of the new city or state and make sure they have veterinary certificates.
  • Wrap your jewelry in towels and pack them in a separate bag that you’ll keep close at all times. Don’t forget to pack important documents like passports and birth certificates.

Why you need a professional moving company

  • Expertise: Professional movers are highly experienced in handling household items and will do their best to deliver them in one piece. They have the proper skills to carefully pack your smaller items in boxes and the right equipment to lift and carry your heavy and large furniture into the waiting trucks.
  • Fast and efficient: Professional movers know how to work with speed to move your items from your current home to your new house. They are trained with techniques to utilize space, and since they run on a schedule, they don’t have a choice but to work fast to deliver your belongings without delay.
  • Affordability: When you consider the cost of separately hiring a truck, purchasing packing supplies and hiring people to help you load and unload, you’ll realize that’s it’s cheaper to hire movers. They base their moving cost on distance and the number of items you own. There are no hidden charges with professional movers hence you get to spend only the amount you agree on.
  • Reduced risks: In every move, safety comes first. The risk of sustaining injuries is high when you move on your own. Handling heavy items requires the hands of professional movers. It’s their field of expertise, and they have more experience than any of your friends that might be willing to help.

How to find the best moving company

Word of mouth is a valuable tool when looking for a reputable moving company. Ask around for recommendations from people you trust. List down at least three movers and do further research to find one that fits your preferences. Do not go for cheaper movers without considering the quality of services they provide.

It’s advisable to hire a moving company that’s been certified by the American Moving and Storage Association. Apart from subjecting its members through stringent background checks, they also ensure they are legitimate and follow the professional business practices.

Do not hire a company that’s not registered by the FMCSA. The agency is responsible for licensing all companies operating in the transport industry. Long distance movers must have a USDOT Number while intrastate movers must have permits from their corresponding states.

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!
