Raleigh Long Distance Moving Companies

The activities you need to carry out during a move require the services of a moving company; and your long distance move to Raleigh will be smooth and stress-free. Raleigh is the county seat of Wake County and the capital city of North Carolina. It is the second most populous city in the state with approximately half a million residents. 

Raleigh, one of the best planned cities in the country developed due to agriculture, manufacturing and education. It hosts three major universities and dozens of processing industries. The city is also home to unique museums with thousands of age-old exhibits. If you have a move planned, talk to A-1 Auto Transport. We work to make your move and vehicle relocation process as smooth as possible.

Why you need a moving company

  • Safety: Moving companies provide safety to your household goods during the move. When packing, they use quality packing material such as corrugated boxes and bubble wrap to protect delicate items. Well-built and trained personnel lift and carry your household goods to the vehicle. Heavy items such as refrigerators and pianos are loaded using trolleys and forklifts. Moving companies then use modified vehicles to transport your items. The vehicles have air-cushioned carriers and real-time satellite technology to ensure the safety of your items.
  • Speed: Movers know how to pack multiple items fast and use the safest techniques while at it. They also use their large numbers to handle time-consuming tasks such as packing and loading. Moving companies have equipment such as dollies that add to their speed and safety and deliver the items using moving trucks driven by experienced drivers.
  • Security: Moving company personnel have values such as honesty and integrity. They have also been trained to protect the customer’s household goods to ensure zero theft or misplacements.

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 choose a professional moving company

Ask people in your neighborhood that have moved before for referrals of a reliable mover. If they had a memorable experience with a moving company, they can refer them and they can also give you tips to ensure your move is efficient.

Use professional moving associations to source for steadfast moving companies. Professional moving associations train their members and monitor their services to ensure they operate in accordance with the set rules and regulations. They also have an efficient and effective channel for resolving customer-mover disagreements. One of the most renowned associations is the American Movers and Storage Association.

Ask the moving companies about:

  • The type of labor they use. Professional moving companies should only use trained and permanent personnel.
  • Ensure the company does not deal with brokers since they are not governed by the same rules governing moving companies.
  • Moving companies which are accredited by the Better Business Bureau have quality services.

Verify the moving company’s; license, insurance, safety rating and violations from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association. They also have a `Your rights and responsibilities when moving’ booklet. It helps you understand how the moving industry operates.

Confirm whether the company has any awards for its services in the moving industry, the community or the environment. Moving companies that go the extra mile to provide quality services are reliable. A-1 Auto Transport is involved with scholarships and the Smart Way Programme.

Practical tips for a successful move

  • Prepare for your long distance move over an extended period of 2-3 months. This ensures you handle all activities in the most efficient manner.
  • Ensure you have all the required materials before moving day. This includes packing material, moving equipment and utility forms. Some materials such as corrugated boxes should be acquired in excess just in case you decide to move additional items.
  • When packing, begin with the non-essentials such as vacation wear, sports gear and books as you proceed to the day to day items.
  • Keep all the boxes to a weight of less than 60 pounds. Heavier boxes are more difficult to handle.
  • Pack an emergency bag with you. It should contain essential household goods such as toiletries, personal documents, money, prescriptions and fresh clothes.

International And Overseas Moving To Or From Raleigh

If you’d like to bring your family into the US or move away and take everything you own with you, it’s best to contact a moving company. It will save you a lot of time, and you won't have to figure out every single thing on your own.

Thanks to our movers’ 20 years of experience, they can pack your property and organize it in such a way that there's rarely an accident. Road bumps, sharp turns, having to stop at a red light or the shaking of the ship (if you're going overseas) can easily result in broken things if they aren't packed properly. Our work will help prevent this situation. In case of an accident, you will be compensated.

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!
