We also provide automobile transport services.

Ideas for a Smooth Transition

The period before the day of your move is typically several weeks unless you have to vacate in a rush. It should be sufficient for sorting your possessions and casting away what you don't need. Make a checklist of the activities you have to carry out to keep track of your progress.

Select some professional movers and fill them in with the details regarding your move. Explain to them what they should expect, such as oversized items like pianos and pool tables, and space restrictions like narrow passageways or a small elevator. The information will help them to prepare accordingly.

While sorting your property, get rid of unnecessary things. Some items become useless after getting damaged or outdated, and it is not worthwhile to bother packing them. Keep your luggage as lean as possible to save time and to reduce costs.

Take an inventory to detect if anything goes missing. Prepare a spreadsheet of the contents of each moving box and write a number and the appropriate room on each of them. The record will also be useful in tracing various items while setting up your new home.

Request your utility companies to disconnect you just before moving out to avoid unnecessary bills. Remember also to change your postal address at the post office.

Reasons for Hiring Moving Companies

Moving companies develop the most appropriate plans for relocations. They know the required provisions and their prices, helping you to encompass everything when making a budget. When moving by yourself, you can forget to include some essentials or make wrong estimates.

Movers for hire provide an excellent solution for people who need to move urgently. In such a situation, they provide all the materials required as well as adequate labor to complete the work in a flash.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods nationwide. Call 888-509-3213 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.

Professionals have the experience necessary to overcome moving challenges such as hauling a large consignment over a long distance. They have custom-made trucks for preserving the condition of your goods as well as storage facilities if your relocation is to take an extended period.

You may have to deconstruct some of your large items such as furniture for them to fit well in the moving truck and narrow passageways. Moving professionals have the skills and tools for doing a clean job. By doing it yourself, you can cause substantial damage to expensive things.

Finding a Reliable Moving Company

It's necessary to know your movers well and to have a face to face meeting with them. Therefore, hire a moving company from your region. Its agents should also visit you for the assessment of your move for them to prepare accordingly.

Ensure that the moving company has been active in the business for an extended period. A clean track record should assure you of an effective relocation process.

The movers should possess a valid USDOT number to run a long distance move. Carriers without this license may run intrastate moves if they meet the requirements of their state.

Even though low rates are attractive, beware of getting trapped by scammers. Ensure that the price is reasonable and get an official receipt for all payments.

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!
