If you have a move planned, talk to A-1 Auto Transport. We are an experienced moving and vehicle relocation company providing services across New Mexico.
Why you need a moving company
- Experience: Moving handle moves on a regular basis which ensures they provide quality services. They know how to pack different types of items and load them in the safest manner. They also know the best routes to use when transporting your items and how to navigate different terrain and weather conditions. When handling a self-move, your inexperienced helpers are bound to cause one or two accidents during the move.
- Dependability: Self-moves are unreliable since your friends could choose not to show up. This causes delays which lead to additional expenses. A moving company is bound by a contract; they appear at the agreed time and execute the move with efficiency. They come completely prepared for all tasks and any challenges that could crop up.
- Accountability: Moving companies take responsibility for your items during a move. They account for all items by taking an inventory and assessing their value. They also use professional personnel to handle all items. This ensures safe and swift services and in case any item gets damaged or misplaced, they repay accordingly.

Tips to make your move smooth
- Start your preparations early. An efficient long distance move should be planned for at least two months beforehand.
- Schedule a moving date during the week in the middle of the month. There are fewer people moving which results in reduced moving costs and fast delivery intervals.
- Source for quality moving supplies weeks in advance. Use corrugated boxes to pack your items. They can hold loads heavier than normal. Ensure you also have markers to label the boxes and tapes to strengthen the edges and bottom of boxes.
- Cut down on your belongings. Sort out items you do not use/need and donate or sell them via a yard sale. Moving with unnecessary items increases your moving cost while weighing down your move.
- Document the condition of your items before packing. Also, create an inventory of all items you pack.
- Communicate with the company personnel regularly in case of new developments such as additional items or a change in the moving date.

International And Overseas Moving To Or From Santa Fe
Friends can be of great help when you’re moving away. They can assist you with packing and lifting your property.
However, if you’re going abroad, we recommend leaving at least the transport itself to professional movers. There’s a lot of planning needed to get past customs, to obtain and bring a container, etc. Furthermore, although you can pack your items on your own, you’ll be responsible if any of them break during transport.
The more you try to do alone, the more risks you will take upon you. Since you’ll also need weeks of your time to move everything, most people choose to work with movers instead.
