The process of moving can be a stressful one, especially with all the packing involved. A-1 auto transport is a California based professional mover. We will help you with all the moving tasks from beginning to end making it a smooth relocation.
Tips to help you move easier
- Start packing early. Don’t wait until it’s two weeks to the moving day. Packing in a rush will exhaust you and you might leave out important items like documents. Packing early ensures your move is peaceful and flawless.
- When moving to a newly built house or a vacant home: You need to set up your utilities. It’s necessary to call the utility companies to establish the services you require.
- Pack your belongings strategically: Mark the items you will need first with a distinctive marker. Make sure they are loaded last and offloaded first. Items such as towels, pajamas, sheets, and a change of clothes need to be accessed easily.
- Select one room to be your packing station. Here you can arrange the packed and sealed boxes so that they are easy to grab on the moving day.
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.
Why you need a professional moving company
- Right tools: Professional movers are prepared with the right tools for your move. They have shrink wrap which will protect your furniture from breaking in the trucks. The crew will handle your items professionally and load them safely into the trucks. They also have tools to dismantle furniture that may not fit properly in the trucks. They will then assemble them back together at your new house.
- Convenience: A professional moving company will give you packing boxes some weeks prior to the moving date. They save you the time and money purchasing new boxes you may use again. The professionals are fast and efficient and will pack and load your stuff in no time.
- Insurance cover: A professional mover is insured. Hence, your household items will be insured and you get compensation in case of any incidents. The Licensing and Insurance Public ensures that moving companies provide adequate insurance cover for consumers’ belongings.
How to find the best moving company
- Know your rights: When moving you need to know your rights with the movers. Go to protectyourmove.gov to learn more about your moving company and your responsibilities. Your company has to have legal clearance to operate in the business.
- Experience: A moving company that has been in the business for long is sure to deliver quality services. Their track record will show the number of people they have helped move over the years.
- Licensing: Only hire a moving company that has been licensed. If you are moving from one state to another, check that they have a valid USDOT Number which is issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
- Do your research: Ask around to get references about the moving company’s operations. How well equipped they are and how well their employees are trained. This will greatly contribute in your choice of company to hire. If they are members of the American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA), then you can trust that they are a reputable company.
