Long distance moves are hectic especially when conducted by an amateur. A-1 Auto Transport has the most comprehensive moving and vehicle relocation services.

Why hire a professional mover

  • Packing: Packing is the most tedious task when moving. It involves numerous items and time which accounts for 40% of the moving expenses. Professional moving companies have full-service moves where they pack, load, unpack and arrange your new premises. Your items are handled by professionals who ensure the highest safety standards are applied. They wrap delicate items with bubble wrap and pack glassware amongst clothing.
  • The season: Moving during the winter season is risky. You can easily slip on ice when loading items in the vehicle. Your friends also work at a slower pace due to the cold temperature and foggy conditions. Professional movers have employees who have experience working in winter seasons. They are also aided by advanced equipment such as grippers, trolleys and ramps which ensure the items are loaded safely and swiftly.
  • Security: When conducting a long distance move, your friends may steal some of your fashionable items while others may forget to load several items. Your belongings may also get stolen on the road. Moving companies have real-time satellite technology to track your belongings at any point across the world. They also sign agreements to secure your items and repay for any theft that happens on their watch.

A checklist of the most reliable moving companies

Seek referrals for the MMA. They have over 100 moving companies in the state. They have undergone thorough vetting before registration. They also have been inspected by the Michigan Department of Transport and deemed worthy to offer moving services. They have comprehensive moving services such as:

  • The customer’s rights and responsibilities
  • How to select a reliable moving company
  • How pricing works in long distance moves
  • The company’s liabilities when moving
  • Special moving services

Use the FMSCA website to verify the company’s physical addresses, safety rating and insurance information. Check the condition of moving vehicles and the type of drivers they use.

Ask for quotations from several companies and make a comparison. Check if the company offers additional services such as unpacking and storage. Additional expenses may result due to:

  • Delay on the part of the customer
  • Additional items on moving day
  • Unforeseen circumstances such as extreme weather
  • The customer requesting a single delivery where the company does not consolidate moves

Tips to make your move easy

Plan a budget and use it to determine how many items you need to move, when to move and the amount of help you require.

Enlist friends to help with your move weeks ahead. Inform the neighbours about your move and change the lease agreement with your landlord weeks in advance. Hire a baby sitter or send the kids to relatives as the moving day approaches.

Set a moving date that does not clash with your regular programme. Ensure you have zero distractions on moving day for an efficient move.

Separate fragile items and place them on the uppermost compartment when loading. Ensure they are adequately wrapped with bubble wrap or soft fabric. They should also have clear labels along the sides.

Have a central location for packing to reduce the time used to locate and move items.

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!
