Long Distance Moving To Or From San Jose, California

San Jose is one of the thriving big cities in the San Francisco Bay Area, and one in which we frequently provide customers, both commercial and residential, with our top of the line moving services. With over 20 years of experience, we bring expertise and professionalism to every move we handle, whether it’s across town or across the country. In addition to home moving, we also ship cars as part of our relocation services, or as an a la carte service. Here are some of the many nationwide moving services we offer:

Tips To Help Make Your Move Easier

  • Plan in advance. Contact the movers, arrange a walkthrough and get an estimate based on the amount of furniture and boxes you need moved. Estimate the load value and ensure they are equipped to handle oversized items such as pool tables and pianos.
  • Start early. There’s a lot of planning and organization that goes into moving and the last thing you want is to be hustling on moving day to get everything ready for the movers. If you need help formulating a plan, click here for our moving checklist.
  • Cut the excess. It’s often the case that we don’t realize how much unnecessary stuff we have until it’s time to move. The more you can get rid of, the easier and cheaper your move will be. A yard sale and a trip to a donation center can save a lot of time and money.
  • Keep essentials close at hand. Any important documents, bills, toiletries, medications, records or anything else you may need quick access to should be readily available.
  • Stay on top of subscriptions and recurring bills. Things like cable, internet, gym membership and the electric bill can all be set to end on or around your moving day. Waiting until the last minute to handle these things can create unnecessary stress and hassle.

A-1 Auto Transport is a full service moving company serving customers in the Bay Area and throughout the United States. We provide our services to and from any city in the nation and are happy to answer any questions you may have along the way.

How To Research & Assess Moving Companies

If you’re looking for moving companies online, it can be difficult to determine the good from the bad. There are so many moving companies out there, even just in San Jose, that it can make your head spin. However, not all moving companies are equal, even if the service they provide are essential the same. Things like the type of moving services they offer, the price they charge, and how professional and careful they are with your belongings can all differ from one mover to another. Here are some ways you can differentiate between a company that’s experienced and professional from the host of others out there trying to turn a quick buck.

What does their website look like? We’re not talking about the design and user friendliness here, but how forthright they are about their information and if they have answers to all your questions. For example, a reputable moving company will make no secret about their office location(s), how to reach them, how long they’ve been in business, and the services they provide. A simple one page website with very little information on it is usually a sign that a company is not keeping up with the modern industry trends and the reality that many of their customers find them on the internet.

Just because a company does have a snazzy website doesn’t mean they’re automatically going to be a great moving company to work with either. There is some simple research you can do to ensure that you’re dealing with a licensed and registered professional mover, as well as find information about their track record and history. Two great places to look up information about moving companies that serve San Jose are the California Moving and Storage Association and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Both websites also offer a lot of tips to help make sure you partner only with the best and most trusted movers in the area.

Lastly, it’s always a good idea to call a moving company and speak to them in person. If you have some questions for them, even better. You can tell a lot about a company by the level of customer service they provide and their ability to provide quality, professional input to any prospective customer. If you follow these steps, you’ll be well on your way to finding a San Jose moving company that knows the ins and outs of the business and is capable or providing the level of service you expect.

Satisfied Customers

“I am meticulous when it comes to everything. At first, I was thinking of just driving all the way to Illinois from New Jersey. A friend recommended me to go to A1 Auto Transport and told me a lot of good things about them. I refused initially because I had filed a 4 day leave just to drive and visit my mother. But things did not go well. My boss asked me to cancel my leave because a very important client asked for an urgent meeting, and the manager could not attend to it. I was hopeless and took the risk of asking help from A1. The notice was short and I forgot I needed to inform them in advance. After a couple of hours, I received a call and they told me they found a way to book me with no extra fees. I am so thankful I got to attend to my work matters. I did not get to see my mother, but the vehicle and items inside it were in perfect condition as if it was me who took care of it. I owe you guys big time! I got one huge deal from our client.”

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“I’m so glad I met you Joe!! A truly fortunate experience. Having to transport a car to Minnesota, I was stunned to see the company, who was supposed to take care of it, just vanish. I couldn’t reach them anymore, like they went bankrupt overnight. However, I was lucky enough to not pay anything, so I simply researched some more until I found A1 Auto Transport. Joe answered my call the first time and we soon agreed on a date and a quote. Unfortunately, I got caught up in work and forgot about it. The order was not confirmed, so Joe must’ve thought I changed my mind. I called him the next day and arranged for a new date. This time, I made a note on my phone and it went well. I replied to his email this time, and the driver arrived at a parking lot down the street on time, as promised. The driver was nice enough to not mention my previous mistake. He delivered my car in just 3 days. Upon careful inspection, there were no scratches or damage done to it during transport. Joe was there along with the driver and they both waited patiently until I was satisfied. Thanks!”

“A1 Auto is kind of like your favourite mom and pop pizza parlour, the one you can’t get enough of despite all the new, expensive avant-garde pizza shops that have mushroomed conspicuously across the entire neighbourhood and seem to have taken over the whole world...but not you. Because you value quality and genuine customer service, and know this business understands and works doubly hard to give you your money’s worth. I’ve been using A1 Auto Transport whenever I left California for business: they may not be the cheapest car transporters around, but the sheer professionalism, dedication, and heart they put into their work is just amazing and worth my every dime. I’m probably one of the most sceptical people you would ever meet. I’m rarely convinced when bombarded with dubious, self-congratulating ads of companies that look like they’ve spent tons of money on marketing materials just to lure your average guy in. A1 Auto Transport is the complete opposite of these companies. My car always arrived promptly on schedule, never with a hint of scratch or dirt or damage, and they keep me updated every step of the process. When you’ve found a company whose genuine care for their customers comes naturally, you stand by them no matter what. It’s the most logical thing to do.”

“A1 Auto Transport helped me move a vehicle to Iowa from Houston. I was a bit nervous, no knowing much about such services. Thanks to Joe, I was able to clear the fog a little. He answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that left no room for interpretation. The details were straightforward. I picked Sunday as the pickup date, since I wasn’t at work, and they accommodated me. The truck arrived an hour early, yet the driver patiently waited for me to arrive. He thoroughly checked my car for scratches or anything that might affect the transport then drove it onto the truck. I was given a 2 day time window during which the car was supposed to arrive in, and it got to Iowa in the evening of the first day. The trip didn’t damage it at all. Next time a friend wants to move, I’ll surely recommend A1 Auto Transport.”
