Somerville State To State Moving Services

Somerville Long Distance Moving Companies

Somerville is a borough in Somerset County, the state of New Jersey. It lies along the Duke Farms which are known for expansive undeveloped natural habitats. People often visit for nature walks, biking or camping. The city also has classic England buildings with some being over a century old. If you have a move planned, engage A-1 Auto Transport. We are the most experienced moving and vehicle relocation company in Somerville.

Why hire a moving company?

  • Peace of mind: Long distance moving is the most time-consuming and expensive kind of move. You need adequate experience, labor and skills to make the move a success. Moving companies know what a long distance move entails. They handle the most complicated and time-consuming tasks and leave the simple tasks to you. This ensures you have adequate time and are calm to handle the rest of your move.
  • Affordability: Professional movers are cost-effective compared to do-it-yourself (DIY) moves. They handle moves routinely; hence know how to protect your items to avoid losses. They also use an estimate for each move they handle where they calculate all moving costs such as labor, fuel, hidden charges and unforeseen circumstances. This ensures the move has no additional costs. In case your items get damaged in their possession, they have insurance which compensates you accordingly.
  • Long distances: Keeping your items safe when moving for long distances is quite challenging. There are risks such as road accidents which can damage your items and cause bodily-harm. Moving companies know all the risks involved in long distance moving. They use experienced personnel to pack and load your items and then transport them using experienced drivers in modified vehicles.

Tips to locate a reliable mover

  • Suggestions: Get friends, relatives or co-workers who have used moving companies in the past to suggest reliable movers. First-hand information from a trustworthy source is reliable and accurate.
  • Customer reviews: Check how previous customers rate their experience with the moving company. Past customers narrate their experiences with movers at the company’s customer testimonial page. It is among the best methods to understand the quality of a company’s customer service. Reliable movers have positive reviews and little complaints while unreliable movers have multiple complaints and negative reviews.
  • A moving estimate: Get a moving quote from at least three companies. Inform the company of all items you want moved including any pets or bulky items. This ensures they provide an accurate estimate. An estimate should include all moving costs, hidden costs and unforeseen circumstances. Beware of companies that offer low quotations. They are often laden with hidden costs.

License and insurance

Ask movers for their USDOT number and enter it on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association. They regulate all state to state moving companies to ensure safety along the highways and when handling the customer’s items.

You can also verify a company’s:

  • Moving resources-drivers and vehicles.
  • Type of household items moving license.
  • Safety rating. Check it against the national average safety rating.
  • Pending violations such as handling household items without a license.

Simple tips for a flawless move

  • Plan your long distance move months in advance. Early preparation enables you to get the best moving company, moving supplies and a good moving deal. This also ensures your move is efficient and accomplished within your timeline.
  • Downsize your move. Separate the items you do not need and sell or donate them to Goodwill. Begin with the garage items and then proceed to furniture and clothing. The heavier your load the higher your moving charges.
  • Sort out items such as toiletries and clothes that you will need on arrival, and pack them in a first night bag. They come in handy the first few nights before you finish unpacking or if your stuff gets delayed.

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!
