Salem State To State Moving Services

Salem Long Distance Moving Companies

Salem, the most famous city in Essex County is laden with multiple activities. It is also called ‘The Witch City’ due to the infamous witch trials of the 17th century. Most schools and government departments adorn witch logos in their equipment and structures. It was the most visited destination in Massachusetts during the last four Halloweens. It also boasts of being the home to the country’s National Guard. The green city has heavily reduced the use of fossil fuels by using bikes, solar energy and human labour. Salem attracts more than 1 million visitors annually who mainly visit the harbor, witch houses and museums. If you like spooky adventure, Salem is definitely the place for you. Long distance moves are best handled by professional movers. They have the required experience and equipment for a successful move. A-1 Auto Transport is the most trusted moving and vehicle relocation company.

Why you should hire a moving company

  • Affordability: When using professional movers, you will actually save money in the long run. Moving companies bulk up their services to reduce the expenses of individual tasks. They also enjoy economies of scale due to handling huge volumes. Movers provide huge discounts for large distance moves. In case unfortunate events occur, your items are safely covered by insurance
  • Numerous items: Moving involves carrying and loading multiple items from all rooms in the house. You need to create an inventory for all packed items. You also need to keep the items safe and ensure they arrive on time. These tasks are too much for one person and you can easily forget some items in the house on moving day.
  • Communication: When moving, you need to know how all tasks are progressing. In case there are challenges, your helpers should inform you immediately. Professional movers like A-1 Auto Transport use a digitized communication platform which informs the personnel about efficient moving methods. They also update you on the moving progress at your discretion. You will never worry about your belongings when using professional movers.

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.

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!
