Why you should hire a moving company

  • Volume: Moving companies can handle all types of moves. They can perform corporate relocations in a single trip. Movers have the experience to pack items tightly so that they fit in a given space. If you need to move a full mansion using do it yourself (DIY), you would probably make five trips.
  • Affordability: Hiring movers can save you money in the long run. The advantages outweigh the disadvantages. When subscribing for moving services from a company, the consolidation of tasks lowers the total cost. Movers enjoy economies of scale due to handling large volumes. Movers provide safety of all items thus ensuring no losses.
  • Insurance: Insurance is flexible. There is content insurance which is the standard cover at $0.60 at a pound. All employees are covered under the worker’s compensation insurance. Moves in buildings are under the general liability insurance.
  • Trained employees and right equipment: Moving companies hire quality employees. Most have no criminal records and are engaged in long term contracts. Movers professionally train the employees for all tasks. The rigorous training involves physical exercise and problem-solving skills. This improves on strength and stamina while increasing their incident awareness. Movers use proper equipment to handle moves. They know how to dismantle large furniture and handle delicate items. The bubble wrap used protects against impact while common wrap protects against debris. Ramps are used to move heavy books and metal.

Ten best moving tips

  • Seek a reliable company that can handle your move. Check on their experience, reviews, and
  • Scope the new area before the move. Measure the doorways and paths. Check for any item that may need fixing. Familiarize yourself with the rules and regulations of the new environment.
  • Purge all items you no longer use. You can organize a yard sale and earn money to facilitate the move. Alternatively, you can pack and call local charities to pick the items. It makes it easier to haul the load.
  • Acquire all moving supplies in advance. Ensure you have corrugated boxes, tapes, and wraps before you commence packing.
  • Smartly pack all items. Use large boxes for light items and small boxes for heavy items. Begin packing from the room with the most items.
  • Label everything. Use labels on all sides of the boxes. Use different colors for items from different rooms. Use large bright labels for boxes with fragile items.
  • Liaise with the previous tenant to switch utilities. Make sure you have gas, electricity, and cable before moving into your new house.
  • Pack an overnight bag. It should contain toiletries, utensils, first aid kit, prescriptions and clean clothes.
  • Use personal transport to move valuable items like heirlooms and documents. If possible, make copies of all the documents.
  • Unpack only the items you need. Recover by taking a warm bath or listening to your favorite music.

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!
