Portage State To State Moving Services

🇺🇸 Portage - Kalamazoo, Michigan (MI) 49002

Portage Long Distance Moving Companies

Portage in Kalamazoo County, Michigan is best known for extensive bike trails and nature hikes. The city’s green initiatives have received countrywide recognition. Potage was home to agricultural engineering firms and giant pharmaceuticals in the 20th century. The city has progressed to tourism and the entertainment industry. Move to Portage and visit the Air Zoo where there is an aviation museum and indoor amusement park. View coyotes, bobcats and mountain pumas at the prairies and Austin Lake. There is also a military museum and art museum located adjacent to the park. Long distance moves require experience, equipment and permits. A-1 Auto Transport is the most equipped and trusted moving and vehicle relocation company in Portage.

Why a moving company is better than a self-move

Self-move

  • It is unreliable since your friends may fail to show up.
  • Your inexperienced friends will cause accidents.
  • You need to hire moving equipment which is expensive.
  • Since the move is not insured, you repay all the damage caused by you and your friends.
  • The numerous tasks such as planning, ensuring the safety of your items and heavy lifts are stressful.
  • Delays are common since you do not know the terrain or how to dismantle large items.

A professional mover

  • They have the required experience. They know how to coordinate a move and ensure safe and timely delivery of your items.
  • Movers have professional training which ensures they safely pack, load and transport the items.
  • Movers have advanced equipment which helps them work faster.
  • Movers insure your items. In case an item gets damaged, the company repays according to the insurance.
  • A professional mover is accountable. They use a solid inventory and real-time satellite technology to keep track of all items they move.
  • Movers work in shifts which ensures they don’t become inefficient due to exhaustion.

Steps towards finding the best mover in Portage

Use the American Movers and Storage Association to find the best state to state moving companies. All members have a Promover sign that validates their legitimacy. They adhere to a strict code of professional ethics. They also deal with consumer complaints.

Verify previous customer experiences with the company at Movereviews.com or Yelp. The sites allow customers to rate moving companies according to their experience. All reviews are verified to avoid exaggerated and false opinions.

Check the business profiles of moving companies at the Better Business Bureau. Get to know the experience of a moving company and the resources they own. Check the consumer complaint history and how the company resolves them.

The FMCSA regulates state to state moving companies. Enter the USDOT carrier number to check the company’s safety rating at the crashes section. If it falls below the national average safety rating, avoid the company.

It’s important to consult a professional before agreeing to the movers’ terms. Ensure there is a witness when signing the contract. Some movers are known to insert dubious clauses in the contract and overcharge the customers for normal services.

How to make your move to Portage seamless

  • Prepare for the move months in advance. Ask for moving tips from the company representative who comes to conduct the walk-through.
  • Inform the movers of any specialized items you own such as huge electrical appliances or pets. They need to show up fully prepared.
  • Communicate with the movers and update them on your progress. Avail yourself on moving day since they may require assistance which only you can provide.
  • Pack utilities such as toiletries, clothes and cooking essentials in a first night bag and move them yourself. Ensure you also move valuable items in your car.
  • When packing, take pictures of the electrical set-ups. It comes in handy when re-installing them.
  • Dismantle large furniture items and place packed items in strategic locations. This increases the movers’ efficiency which results in reduced moving charges.
  • Cancel your deliveries and subscriptions weeks in advance. Also, remember to change the lease agreement with your landlord before entering into a new agreement.

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!
