Salem State To State Moving Services

Salem Long Distance Moving Companies

Moving can make you realize your passion or purpose in life. People move for reasons such as vacation, work or better housing. And if you’re moving to Salem, we’ve got your back! Salem is a city in Columbiana County, the state of Ohio. It is one of Youngstown inner ring suburbs. The city has one of the best underground rail systems connecting various towns in the county. Salem also has several historic district houses which have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

If you have planned a move here, talk to us. We also handle auto transportation.

Why engage the services of a professional mover?

  • Expertise. Moving companies have the expertise required to conduct moves safely and swiftly. Their skills arise from experience and professional training. They know how to safely pack multiple household goods such as valuables and delicate items. They also have the strength to lift heavy items and the stamina to work for long hours. Moving companies also know how to deal with unexpected problems which might arise. They can tackle extreme weather, heavy traffic or dead elevators.
  •  A professional inventory. Accounting for all household goods you are moving is an important task. Moving companies understand the need to keep your items safe from misplacements or theft. They list all the items in their possession and load them strategically. They can locate a specific item in a clutter of belongings with ease. The inventory also makes it easier for you when unpacking.
  • Packing. Under self-moves, people often use their friends to help them with packing. This could be in a bid to save money, but it can be more expensive in the end. Friends can break your items, while some might pack slowly and delay your move. Moving companies have professional packers. They have handled packing for large families and corporates alike which means they are widely experienced. They also have insurance in case your household goods get damaged in their possession.

3 tips to choose the best mover in Salem

  • Understand the type of services you need and look for the company which matches your requirements. You might need packing, unpacking, and house arrangement services if you have delicate or loads of household goods. This saves you money and time you could use to handle other important tasks. If you have a lean budget, consider acquiring free moving materials and handling packing.
  • Review the company you want to hire. Do not assume the company is legitimate without conducting some due diligence. Check their service record from the Better Business Bureau and other trusted internet sources. The company might be involved in moving scams. A reliable company should have little or no complaints. To avoid getting into disputes with moving companies, verify their consumer complaint history.
  • Enter the company’s DOT number at the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association to view their compliance with the United States Department of Transport requirements. All state to state moving companies should have a valid household moving license and base level insurance. Use the Ohio Public Utilities Commission to verify local moving companies.

Take caution

  • Avoid moving companies with no permanent physical address.
  • Do not give more than a 20% deposit to any company.
  • All agreements should be documented on paper.
  • Avoid companies that have not been assessed by the Better Business Bureau.

What to do when moving to Salem

  • Ensure you have a 2-3 months period as your preparation time. This ensures you are efficient.
  • Move during the fall or winter season when there are fewer people moving. Moving companies often give good deals during these periods.
  • Scale down your move. Sort out your belongings and put aside items you do not need. Such household goods increase your moving cost and weigh down your hauling efficiency.
  • Pack your household goods strategically. Start with the room with the most (and rarely used) items as you proceed to the one with essential items.
  • Ensure you are at least 90% ready before moving day. You can do so by packing all your items, placing them in strategic positions and filling out all ‘change of residence’ utility forms.
  • Create an inventory of all items you pack and load. Make sure the company’s inventory aligns with yours before they leave.

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!
