Portland State To State Moving Services

🇺🇸 Portland - Cumberland, Maine (ME) 04101

Portland Long Distance Moving Companies

Most moves are triggered by an increase in the family size hence the need for a bigger house. With moving scams on the rise, it’s important to find a reliable moving company to complete your move. A-1 Auto Transport has been serving people for almost 30 years now and is now a trustworthy moving company. Based in Maine, we have the expertise and resources to help you relocate to or from Portland comfortably. Visit our offices to learn more about our unique range of services including vehicle transport.

Tips for a stress-free move

  • Schedule to have all the food in the kitchen and fridge used up before moving day. Perishable food cannot be safely moved since it can easily mess your other items. Consider donating any unopened canned food to Move for Hunger.
  • Set realistic targets and create a flexible timeline to help you stay organized. Early preparation is vital and having a good strategy will help you achieve your goals faster and efficiently.
  • Don’t let things overwhelm you. Invite your friends to help you out especially with packing. Pick one weekend when most of them are free and let them pack what they can handle. Your workload will be greatly reduced, and you can prepare a nice meal to thank them.
  • Valuable items should be kept in one place. Find a box or small bag to store your precious jewelry and keep the bag/box with you at all times. The same applies to your documents such as passports, birth certificates and will.
  • Source your boxes from bookstores. They are strong and can withstand the weight of your items. After careful packing, make sure the boxes are adequately taped to keep your stuff intact.

Why you need a professional moving company

  • Peace of mind: Professional movers are trained to take care of your items from start to finish. They are transparent, and their experts will advise you on the type of insurance cover you need. Their professionalism and courteous approach inspires confidence and trust in their services.
  • Fewer injuries: Accidents frequently occur during a move mostly as a result of people who don’t have the skills necessary to lift sofas and other heavy household items. By hiring professional movers, you are allowing experienced and trained crew to handle your items hence saving you a trip to the hospital. They have more muscle and are accustomed to handling the heavy items on a daily basis.
  • Reliability: Unlike your friends who have other commitments, professional movers are there whenever you need them, and you don’t have to be worried about last minute cancelations. You have the option of choosing the most convenient moving day, and the movers will carry out the move as agreed.
  • Time management: Let’s say you are working in a busy office and you rarely have time to do anything else. Unless you take time off work, you won’t be able to see through your moving process. Professional movers will take over the moving process and handle everything for you as you continue with your regular work routine.

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.

How to find a great moving company

Find out the experience of the moving company you intend to hire. A business that’s been in operation for more than 10 years is more likely to provide excellent moving services compared to a relatively new one.

Get information directly from people who have moved in the past. This is a most reliable way of getting detailed information about the moving company you would like to hire. Your friends and family members cannot misguide you.

Only work with a mover who has legal documents from the relevant authorities. All moving companies are required to obtain a license from the FMCSA and issued with a USDOT Number if it’s an interstate mover. Movers operating locally should get their licenses from their respective states.

International And Overseas Moving To Or From Portland

Through professional movers, you can transport your in-home items on a global level. You may sacrifice a bit of money, but you'll earn much more in time. You will also save up energy instead of wasting it on figuring out a process our team is already a master of.

The month during which your things are shipped to Europe, Asia, etc. you can use in a multitude of ways. You can take a vacation and/or get closer to your family. You can get acquainted with your new surroundings and get some work done.

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!
