Richmond Long Distance Moving Companies

There are camping sites, numerous wildlife and large navy vessels. If you plan to move to Richmond, talk to A-1 Auto Transport for a smooth relocation. We also handle vehicle relocations.
Why hire a moving company?
- Flexibility. Moving companies have the experience and resources to provide any service the customer needs. They can pack your items and arrange your house under the full-service moves. The company also lets you choose the moving date and which routes you are more comfortable with.
- A single trip. If you have numerous items and you want them moved in a single trip, moving companies can handle that. They have large trucks that can hold tons of items and deliver them within your timeline. Moving such items using self-moves would probably take several vehicles doing two or more trips. A single trip is also cost-effective since you save money that could have been used on additional fuel, labor and hiring several trucks.
- Management. Moving can be a hectic endeavor due to the large number of activities involved. Moving companies have professionals whose roles are clear and your move will be well coordinated. They also draft a plan before handling each move; this ensures there is little or no confusion.

Steps to hire a steadfast moving company
- Check a list of moving companies at the American Movers and Storage Association. This is the most professional moving association in the country. It works to make the moving industry better by eliminating rogue movers and encouraging customers to use moving companies. It also educates the public about moving.
- Ensure you are dealing with a legitimate moving company by checking their license and registration status at the FMCSA. The body is mandated by the United States Department of Transport to regulate moving, storage and auto transport companies in the country.
- Take an inventory of all items you want moved and ask several companies for a moving quote. The quote is based on the distance you are moving and the amount of items you want moved. They should also send a company representative for a walkthrough which ensures they hand you an in-depth estimate. Choose the company with affordable rates and additional services at no extra cost.
- Read the moving booklet from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association to understand how long distance moves work.
- When signing the moving contract, read through the terms and conditions. Ensure there are no hidden charges and in the event they occur, you should establish who is liable for paying them.
