Princeton State To State Moving Services

Princeton Long Distance Moving Companies

Princeton is a municipality in Mercer County, New Jersey. It was founded in the 18th century and it is the oldest city in the Mid-Atlantic States. It is best known for Princeton University, an Ivy League institution of higher education. It ranks highly among the best cities to live and work in the country due to modern infrastructure and cultural inclusivity. If you require professional moving and vehicle relocation services, talk to A-1 Auto Transport.

Why you should hire a moving company


Long distance moving expenses need to be controlled to prevent them from overrunning your budget. Moving companies plan for long distance moves months in advance. They consider all moving expenses such as:

  • Packing, loading and transport charges
  • Unforeseen circumstances
  • Hidden costs

This is very efficient since it ensures the customer does not incur any additional expenses during the entire move.


Professional movers know how a move should proceed from beginning to end. They have dealt with different types of moves and the experience enables them to coordinate the entire move smoothly. They use professionally trained personnel and proper moving equipment to handle all the activities involved.

Time to handle other activities

You might have work related or personal activities that you need to attend to during the moving period. Movers are in a position to take care of all your moving tasks as you take care of your personal matters.

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.

Steps to find a professional moving company

Ask for recommendations from friends and family who have moved in the past. You can also enquire from real estate agents since they deal with moving companies as part of their job. Note down their recommendations and conduct a rigorous research about the companies.

When looking for a moving company, check how previous customers rate the company. Customer reviews enable you to determine the level of services a mover provides. Reliable movers no doubt have positive reviews while substandard movers have regular consumer complaints. Avoid movers who do not bother responding to complaints.

Deal with moving companies who are members of the American Movers and Storage Association. They are put through strict background checks before being registered. They also have to undergo the Promover programme training to ensure they provide quality services.

Make sure that you deal with moving companies that are registered and licensed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association. State to state moving companies should have a USDOT number that allows them to handle household items.

Get a moving quote from the moving company and check it against templates from moving associations or government departments. A proper moving quote should be affordable, have insurance and a fixed delivery window.

Do not trust low moving quotes since some companies are known to use them to hook customers and later take them through a roller-coaster of additional expenses.

How to make a flawless move to Princeton

  • Craft a moving plan. Note down what you need moved and when you should move. Make contact with an experienced mover at least two months to your moving date.
  • Let the company send a representative to perform an in-house estimate. This helps you determine how much the move will cost and how to reduce your expenses.
  • Downsize your load by selling items you no longer use. Keep in mind, the more you carry the higher the moving charge.
  • Set up your change of address at the United States Postal Services at least three weeks before moving day.
  • Cancel deliveries and subscriptions 2 weeks before moving out. Also, apply for utilities in your new house as soon as you sign the lease agreement.
  • Start packing weeks ahead. Pack you items strategically moving room by room. Use boxes of a similar color to pack items from the same room. Label them along the sides with the contents and the room they are destined for.
  • On moving day, be around until all your items have been loaded.

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!
