Oakland State To State Moving Services

Oakland Long Distance Moving Companies

Did you know that summer is the busiest season in the moving industry? The biggest worry when it comes to moving is how to safely transport your household items from your current home to the new place. The answer is to hire a moving company located in New Jersey. We are familiar with the locality and have well-structured systems aimed at making your move to Oakland as smooth as possible. We offer an array of services including vehicle transport.

Tips for a successful move

  • Plan early: Create a schedule of what you need to accomplish before moving day. Ask your mover for a copy of ‘Your Rights and Responsibilities’ booklet to help in preparing for the move. If you intend to hire a mover, do thorough research before selecting the most reliable one.
  • Be present: Movers will have questions on moving day and your presence will simplify matters. Give them directions on where certain items need to be placed in the new home. You will also be able to confirm if your items were delivered intact.
  • Be thorough: Take a final look at all the rooms to ensure nothing important is left behind. Don’t forget the garden area, the garage, and backyard. Before the truck leaves, make sure you have the contact details of the driver for easy communication.
  • Downsize: Most items in our houses are obsolete. Sort out your items into categories of what to move, sell and donate. Moving with less clutter minimizes the moving cost.
  • Packing: Be strategic when packing your stuff. Go from one room to another to have similar items in the same boxes. Start with those rooms that are used less frequently and pack the kitchen last. Remember to label the boxes to make it easy for you and the movers.

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.

Why you should always use professional moving companies

  • Convenience and safety. From the packing stages to unpacking, you want a company that will take care of your household items and safely deliver them to your new home. The staff of a professional moving company is trained to work with speed and efficiency. They offer their services as a package bringing convenience to your doorstep.
  • Storage options. If, for instance, you want to move to a smaller house or your new house is yet to be completed, you will need a place to store your belongings. The movers provide storage facilities that are under 24-hour surveillance. The payment options are flexible and you get to choose the storage period.
  • Accountability. Professional movers provide adequate insurance cover to protect household items. Make sure you understand the terms of your insurance policy to avoid inconveniences later on. To confirm if your mover is insured on not, check with the Licensing and Insurance Public.
  • Management skills. A successful move starts way before the moving day. It requires skill and expertise that only a professional moving company can provide. The movers have the resources to complete a move efficiently. They will organize the whole process for you so you don’t have to be stressed.

Things to look out for when hiring a moving company

The staff should respond with the company name when you call. Their brand name should be clearly displayed on their trucks and websites for easy identification. Movers should have physical facilities where they operate from and standard equipment to handle your move properly.

Only work with a company that gives written estimates. Rogue movers don’t send inspectors for an in-house survey. Instead, they give low estimates over the phone only to demand more cash before delivering your items. To avoid this, consider a BBB Accredited moving company.

Be sure to check the credentials of your moving company. Interstate movers must have a valid USDOT Number while in-state movers should be licensed by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs. Licensed movers are easy to track since their information is available in the FMCSA database.

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!
