Saco State To State Moving Services

Saco Long Distance Moving Companies

As moving day approaches, enlisting the services of professional movers is advisable. They have everything figured out and know all the ins and outs of moving. A-1 Auto Transport is here to help in this exciting and overwhelming phase in your life. If you are relocating to or from Saco, you need a mover who understands the area. We are based in Maine and provide the best moving services including vehicle transport.

The best moving tips

  • If there are clothes on hangers, use trash bags to carry them with the hangers without folding them. When you arrive at your new house, you'll simply hang them back up. Alternatively, instead of folding your clothes roll them so that they occupy less space.
  • Let the professionals handle delicate items such as vases, antiques, and artifacts. They are more experienced and will keep them safe during transit.
  • Visit the new house a few weeks before moving in to set up everything to make unpacking and arranging your items easy. Paint the walls and make renovations whenever necessary since it's easier when the house is empty.
  • Remember to change your address by visiting the local post office or fill it online. This is crucial if you want to continue receiving your bank statements, bills and other important notifications. Note that you’ll need to notify your friends and business associates of the impending move and give them the new address.

Why you need a professional moving company

  • Avoid injuries: Although you may opt to ask for help from your friends and family, they don’t have the expertise of professional movers. Moving heavy and bulky household items may pose a risk to the physical health of everyone involved. But with professionals, they have the skills and training to handle cumbersome items and safely load them into the trucks.
  • Safety and security: A professional moving company has the resources to make sure your items get to your destination safely within the deadline. They have the skills and strength to handle heavy items without risking the safety of anyone involved. Their trucks are designed to protect your belongings further while in transit to ensure safe delivery.
  • Secure storage: If you need a temporary place to keep your items, consider hiring a professional moving company. At A-1 Auto Transport, we store household items in secure facilities that are under 24-hour surveillance. The units are climate controlled to keep the condition of your items intact so you can be confident that they are in safe hands.

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 reputable moving company

  • First, ask friends, neighbors or work colleagues if they can suggest any good moving companies. Create a shortlist of a few moving companies to do an initial screening to find out more about their services and moving rates. Do thorough research on the moving company you're interested in before making a final decision.
  • Secondly, verify the credentials of your moving company to ascertain its legitimacy. Never hire a moving company that’s operating illegally. It means you can’t find their records in the FMCSA database hence making it difficult to trace them in case of any mishaps. Long distance movers should have a valid USDOT Number to be allowed to cross state borders.
  • Thirdly, find out what other people are saying about your moving company by reading online reviews. Customers usually share their moving experiences about moving companies through trusted sites like the Better Business Bureau or Angie’s List.  Getting the perspective of other people will help you learn more about the conduct and professionalism of the moving company.
  • Lastly, visit the Licensing an Insurance Public database to confirm if you're hiring an insured moving company. Different movers offer different insurance options that depend on your budget. It's advisable to purchase additional insurance for extra protection.

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!
