North Royalton State To State Moving Services

North Royalton Long Distance Moving Companies

Many people consider moving as a generally tasking time in their lives. However, moving does not have to be tasking and it should not take away the excitement of relocating to a new house, neighborhood, state or country. Hiring professional movers helps to take away the hassle related to managing many small moving tasks. North Royalton prides itself in being the perfect place to live, work and play. It is located in Cuyahoga County and it became a city in 1961. At A-1 Auto Transport we have helped thousands of people to move to, from or within North Royalton and Ohio. We also offer auto transport services.

Precautions when hiring movers

As a client, you are required to exercise due diligence and precautions in choosing a mover:

  • The internet has given rise to many unscrupulous movers who have put up very good websites. So when looking for a mover it is important to start your search off the internet. Look for local movers within your area; you can get referrals from friends and family or check out the local directory.
  • Once you have identified at least four local movers request them for an in-house estimate to guide your budgeting decisions. When the moving representative sent by the movers comes over do a thorough interrogation about the business, its previous clients and its capabilities. Ask him/her for the company USDOT and MC numbers to allow you to search for them. From your search, you should confirm that your mover is registered and has an insurance cover of at least $750,000. Ensure they provide you with a written estimate.
  • Look up the shortlisted companies’ websites for client testimonials. Also, check other sites for clients’ complaints or compliments. These will help you to know what to expect from the companies. Avoid a company with many negative reviews from different people.
  • Check if your mover is a certified ProMover under the American Moving &Storage Association.
  • Don’t work with movers who only accept cash payments or require down payments of more than 25% of the estimate.
  • Be cautious if your mover does not issue you with a copy of the ‘Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move’ as it is a standard requirement by the FMCSA.
  • Always confirm if your mover has a list of items that they do not move and ask to receive that list ahead of the move.

Non-allowable moving items

The FMSCA, which governs all long distance moves, has set a requirement on items that your movers should and shouldn’t carry to ensure your personal safety and that of your property while in transit. Ask your mover to provide you with a list of items they do not carry. These types of items are classified in three main categories:

  • Lethal items. These items tend to be highly flammable, corrosive or are likely to explode under the right conditions. Some of these items may seem harmless by the very nature that we use them often in our households without a care. These items may include fertilizer, bleach, washing agents, car batteries, nail polish remover etc.
  • Perishable items. These items must be consumed or used within a very short period if not put in certain conditions such as refrigeration. They may include food and plants. Once you know you are moving ensure that you pare pantry so that you do not have to waste a lot of items.
  • Treasured possessions. You are required to move these items yourself because of their sentimental value to you. These will include your medication, jewelry, art pieces and personal documents such as wills. In the case of documents it is helpful to have e-copies and as such you can scan all your important personal documents before the move.

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!
