Tips to make your move easier

  • Foodstuff: Use up everything in your fridge and kitchen before moving day to avoid wastage. You can’t move perishables, so if you still have some and it’s time to move, consider giving away to your friends or relatives.
  • Pack early: This is the key to a stress-free move. Have all the packing materials you need before you start packing. Look for boxes of different sizes and make sure they have firm edges. Start packing long before moving day to ensure nothing is left behind.
  • Cables: Before unplugging the cords from your electronic devices, take a photo of the connections. This way, you’ll simply use the pictures when reconnecting at your new house.
  • Clean your new house: Visit your new home and clean every corner thoroughly. Also, check if anything needs repair and that water and electricity are running. With everything in place, you’ll have an easy time moving in and arranging your items.
  • Leave it to professionals: Pack items you can easily handle such as clothes and kitchen utensils. Let the professionals handle fragile and heavy items to minimize the chances of damage.

3 reasons why you need a professional moving company

  • Experience: A professional mover employs staff that has the skills and expertise to carry out a move with ease. Over the years of moving people to different places, movers have gained vast experience. They have the equipment and trucks to ensure safe and secure delivery of your belongings.
  • When you hire a professional mover, you save a lot since they’ll take care of the whole moving process. The movers will provide packing supplies including boxes. They use quality wrapping material to protect your items from breaking. This way, you’ll save some money and your items will be delivered in one piece.
  • Accountability: Professional movers know how valuable your items are, and will do their best to keep them safe from damage. They provide adequate insurance cover so that don’t suffer loss in case of an accident. Your mind will be at ease knowing that your household items are in able hands.

How to find the best moving company

  • To hire a company that offers competitive rates, get the estimates of at least three moving companies. Compare this with the services they provide before making your decision. Different movers offer different rates, and it’s up to you to pick one that fits your budget.
  • Consider hiring a BBB Accredited moving company. This is the highest level of achievement for a company which means that the quality of service delivery is first-class. The BBB also provides information about the performance of moving companies through their complaints sections. Avoid a company with numerous complaints.
  • A reliable mover should have the legal documents required by the federal and state governments. The FMCSA is responsible for licensing companies in the transport industry. Interstate movers should have a USDOT Number while intrastate movers must have a license from the Illinois Commerce Commission.

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!
