Why a professional mover is necessary

  • Flexibility: Moving companies have flexible services that are designed according to your specifications. They assign adequate time to a move in case you have change of mind or interruptions occur. If you need to move in a few days, professional movers have the capacity to conduct a successful move. Movers also have specialized moves. They can handle items like fine china, very large items and pets alike. This ensures they do not leave any item behind. The trucks can be modified to accommodate any item.
  • Affordability: Professional movers use speed and advanced equipment to conduct moves fast. This eliminates risks which may result to additional expenses. The items are safely handled and covered under different insurance schemes to ensure the customer does not undergo loss. Moving companies work with a budget. They conduct a walk-through and offer an estimate which includes all items and unforeseen circumstances. This keeps the costs in check and hence the budget is rarely exceeded. Safety: Moving companies use wraps such as clothing, newspaper and bubble wrap on delicate items. The items are packed in solid boxes which are taped on the outside. While loading, heavy items are loaded first while light items go on top. Movers are professionally trained and can dismantle pool tables and pianos and move them in bits. The employees use dollies and ramps to move stacked boxes and heavy items with no wheels. The items are loaded onto air cushioned carriers.

How to find the best moving company

Consider a mover that’s a member of the Indiana Household Movers and Warehousemen Association. The members are subjected to strict background checks. They must follow a set code of ethics or risk being deregistered.

The American Movers and Storage Association has the best interstate and international moving companies. They thoroughly vet all members and assign the Promover logo to members. This is used to weed out rogue movers.

Check the reviews of previous customers at Better Business Bureau. The organization allows customers to submit reviews and ratings based on their experiences. Consumers can also file for complaints if they feel dissatisfied. Avoid moving companies with multiple complaints and low ratings.

Establish a moving company is licensed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association. Check using the USDOT carrier number which acts as a permit to transport household items across the country.

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!
