Oakwood State To State Moving Services

Oakwood Long Distance Moving Companies

Oakwood boasts of a rich architectural heritage. Great housing is a key value in this area because it is an affluent city. Many houses are set on well-secluded lands surrounded by lots of trees. Oakwood hosts the ‘Beautification Awards’ where awards are given to the most beautiful houses in order to maintain the city’s visual appeal. We are Oakwood’s preferred mover and we would love to make your move a success. We also offer auto transport options.

Most common moving frauds

It is your responsibility as a client to do your due diligence before you hire a mover to have a guarantee on a safe and reliable move. Below are some of the most common moving scams in the US:

  • Companies that do not agree to offer in-house estimate surveys; they will possibly give you a guessed estimate that might be too good to be true.
  • Movers who require you to pay in cash or down payments of more than 25% of the moving estimate. Most movers allow you to pay on delivery. Where and when possible pay with a credit card so as to show proof in case you need to file for claims. Paying in advance reduces your control in terms of delivery date.
  • When a moving representative is not interested in asking questions pertinent to your move. As a client, you should make sure that you show the representative all the items you need to move; be sure to go to the attic, basement or garage where you may have stored some items.
  • Some companies that have been reported for doing bad business go around this by getting new business names. Get all the names that your mover uses and the company’s federal license number. Be sure to confirm your company’s physical address and call them – alarm bells should go off if your call is not answered in the company’s name.
  • Companies that continually offer bad services. Request for contacts of at least three people they have moved from your area. Contact them and find out their experiences.
  • While packing your own goods might save you on packing costs it puts you at the risk of the mover not being liable for damage to your items. Thus, it is sometimes advisable to hire full services of movers but be available to supervise them to ensure your property is not damaged.
  • Movers who charge you for services that you had not requested or that were not necessary.
  • Some movers hoard your items and demand for a hefty amount beyond what had been agreed upon.
  • Movers who do not give you everything in writing. Your mover should give you estimates that have all possible costs, a fully inclusive inventory and a contract that stipulates pickup and delivery dates. Make sure that every item is listed on the inventory as you cannot make a claim for an item that is not listed.

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!
