The logical thing to do, when planning to move to a new place, is to first sell your old house then buy a new one. However there are extenuating circumstances that force someone to move before the house is sold. If your mind is set on moving and there is still no buyer for your house, here are a few questions you should ask yourself before setting a moving date:
One of the main reasons why people move to a different place is work. If your new job has a defined date, you will have to move to the new location in time even if your house is not off the market.
Your new boss will not understand that you still have an unsold house so you have to make do with what you have. In the meantime, you can rent a place out there or live in a hotel as you wait for the house to sell.
While kids can be transferred to a new school any time of the year, it is usually good for them to start a new school when the year starts. If you are planning to move anyway, the best thing to do is to transfer the kids or enroll them to the new school even if you haven’t sold the house yet. When you move your kids to another school depends on which level they are at since high school and college students have less flexibility as compared to grade school kids. Find a temporary resident around the new school if you haven’t bought a new house already.

Even if you have finished the mortgage on your old house, there are still expenses that go into owning a home. Another thing to consider is if you have the money to buy a new house before selling the old one. If you find yourself in this predicament, you can have your real estate agent help you put a 20% down payment on the new house and wait until the old one sells to pay the rest of the money.
There are instances when one has the option to move to a new place before they sell their old house because they have alternative accommodation. If so, go ahead and make the move; have the moving company arrange for temporary storage of your household items.
In the real estate market, there is no telling when your house will sell. The truth is, you can’t hold off your move until the house is off the market if you really need to move to a new place. While having a good realtor can help make the sale a bit fast, you cannot put your life on hold until that happens.

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.
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!
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 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!
