Top 5 tips for easy relocation

  • Begin packing at least six weeks out. Gather sturdy boxes together with markers, padding materials, and labels. Start with the rooms that are used less frequently like the guest room and garage. Find a central packing place where you'll keep all the boxes and packing materials.
  • Set aside a few small boxes to pack essential items like toiletries, clothes, snacks, drinks, medications and any other item you’ll need before you unpack. Be sure to keep the box within reach to easily access the contents.
  • Clean the new house before moving in. Additionally, make sure everything is in good working condition so that you can settle in with ease. Familiarize yourself with your new neighborhood to make your transition easy.
  • Research the best moving company to help you relocate. Get the estimates of multiple movers and pick one that will accommodate your budget. Let the movers know if you have any bulky items so that they can prepare adequately.
  • Defrost your freezer and fridge at least 48 hours before moving day. Have them cleaned, serviced and wiped dry to keep away any foul smell.

Why hire a professional moving company?

  • Insurance: One of the benefits of hiring a professional moving company is that your belongings are covered by moving insurance. Movers offer different types of insurance options aimed at protecting your items. Any items that get damaged while in their care will be replaced either partially or fully depending on your insurance policy. Your mind will be at peace knowing that your possessions are handled by insured movers.
  • Cost saving: Professional movers know the right truck size to fit all your stuff in one trip. They have the resources to make your move easy and you don’t have to worry about hidden charges. Moving companies charge either hourly or a fixed bill depending on the size of your move and the distance.
  • Professional packing services: If you intend to pack your belongings yourself, then be ready to incur losses due to breakages. Packing is more than just boxing up your items; it requires skills and expertise. Delicate items like vases can easily break if not handled with care. Professional movers deal with such items regularly and know the tricks to ensure their safety.
  • Saves time and effort: With so much to do and such little time, you can easily get overwhelmed. Taking time off work to manage your move may impact you negatively. But when you hire a professional mover, they take over the moving process and handle everything from start to finish. This gives you ample time to take care of the other aspects of your move.

Ways to find a trustworthy moving company

Approach several movers and ask for references you can call to inquire about their moving experience. Alternatively, ask for recommendations from your friends, family, and colleagues. A company that receives a lot of praises is worth checking out. However, don’t pick the mover just yet without checking out other options.

Look for a ProMover member. These are movers who have passed background checks and have agreed to abide by the rules of the association’s Code of Ethics. Members are only certified if they have a clean record and the required licenses.

Is your mover BBB Accredited? The Better Business Bureau gives credibility to movers who maintain good customer relations and have few complaints filed against them. Check the BBB database to read the reviews of other customers and use the information to determine which company to hire.

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!
