Why a moving company is necessary
- Accountability: Moving companies are liable for your items when moving. They document all items and arrive with appropriate moving supplies and equipment. They inspect all the items and pack them safely in high quality corrugated boxes. They are loaded in vehicles which are tracked using real-time satellite technology. In case of accidents, your items are covered by insurance.
- Saves time: Moving companies utilize experience and advanced equipment to reduce the time used conducting moves. They can pack and load items much faster than your helpers. They have the strength, stamina and professional training to handle any type of item. They also have the numbers required to simultaneously handle the multiple items and moving tasks. Modified vehicles ensure the delivery is done within time.
- Straight-forward estimates: When using moving companies you are sure of the total moving cost. They perform a walk-through and provide a moving estimate. It includes all items, moving resources, unforeseen circumstances and insurance. This ensures the amount estimated is never exceeded. Professional movers such as A-1 Auto Transport have a 10% binding estimate for long distance moves. In cases of extreme weather, additional permits or congested traffic, the total moving cost can only increase by ten percent.

The best tips for an ideal move
- Mark all moving items and let the company representative conduct a walk-through. Ensure they account for all items and provide a thorough estimate. Avoid underestimating moving resources and unforeseen circumstances. They may easily break your move.
- Sell or donate items you no longer use. Unnecessary items increase the moving cost and reduce the hauling efficiency.
- It is polite to inform the company about your move weeks in advance. Reserve a convenient parking spot for the company and book the elevator for moving day.
- Use laundry bins, trash bags and suitcases to pack clothes and move them in your car. This reduces the number of boxes used and the moving cost.
- Label the boxes along the sides using bright and clear markers. Avoid the top since they aren’t easily identifiable. Use huge markers for boxes with fragile items. This ensures movers exercise extra caution.
