Tips to make moving easier

  • This is a perfect time to upgrade your kitchen or living room. If the walls need painting or the floor needs refurbishing, be sure to handle the chores early to make settling in easy.
  • Hold a garage sale and make a donation to charity foundations nearby of stuff you don’t need any more. Sort your items and only move with what's necessary.
  • Pack an overnight bag with essentials like phone chargers, snacks, a change of clothes, medication, and toiletries. This way, you will have what you need without having to open the boxes.
  • Make a list of names and companies you want notified about your move. Go to your local post office to change your address and send the new address to everyone on your list.

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.

The importance of hiring a professional moving company

  • No heavy lifting. Professional movers have a team of trained experts who have years of experience in handling the heavy and delicate stuff. They know how to wrap furniture and other bulky items and load them safely into the trucks. The chances of any item getting damaged are very slim.
  • You get time for other things. A move is not just packing, loading and transporting your belongings. You need to find schools for your kids, set up utilities, prep your new house and clear any outstanding debts to mention just but a few. Add packing and you will simply not have sufficient time to accomplish all that. With a professional mover, everything will be taken care of so that you can focus on the other issues.
  • Movers are insured. Items break during a move and there is no way of telling if it will be that expensive TV or your couch. To be safe, professional movers provide various insurance options. The full replacement value will cost a bit higher but is worth considering; your items will be fully replaced in case of an accident.
  • You will have peace of mind. When you know your move is in the hands of professionals, your mind will be at ease. Normally, you will feel under a lot of pressure with all the tasks that await you. But with movers, you don't have to do anything. They are organized and know how to deal with obstacles that may arise.

Steps to find a company you can trust

  • Find out the reputation of your mover before hiring them. Talk to your friends, co-workers, family members, and neighbors to learn the good and the bad of your mover. You will also find a ton of information in the BBB database. Read what people think about your mover and how they rate the company based on their personal experience.
  • The license of your company should be valid. Never hire a company that is operating illegally. Every company should have a unique number issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation. For local moves, check the rules and regulations of moving household items.
  • Estimates should be given in a writing. Reliable movers send a team for an in-house survey in order to provide an accurate estimate. Quotes given over the phone without confirmation of what you own will be misleading and cannot be relied upon.

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!
