Top 5 tips to make moving easier

  • Take inventory of your belongings to help you know what you own. The list should provide a detailed description of the condition of your items so that you can easily tell if they were delivered in the state they were in before the move.
  • Go through every room and sort your items into three categories; to keep, to donate and to dispose of. Place them in separate boxes and contact a charity home in your locality to collect them. If there are items that can be sold, hold a garage sale and use the money to purchase new furniture.
  • You need packing boxes for your stuff. The cartons should be strong to hold your items safely. Consider purchasing them from movers since they have boxes designed to carry specific items like dishes and electronics.
  • When labeling your boxes remember to indicate which rooms they belong to and what's inside. This way, it will be easier to unload and unpack at your new place. Remember to let the movers know which boxes should be loaded last so that you can easily access them.
  • Start packing several weeks in advance, one room at a time. Try packing at least two boxes every day starting with the items that are used less frequently. The process of packing can take you longer than you planned, so the sooner you begin the better.

The importance of hiring a professional moving company

  • Professional services: Moving can be a stressful affair. There are so many tasks ahead of you that need to be accomplished and with the limited time available, it can get frustrating. However, when you hire professional movers, they take care of the logistics and help you relocate comfortably.
  • Experience: Movers are trained to handle a move safely and make timely deliveries. This is what they do day in day out. They have perfected their skills and are prepared to deal with any obstacles along the way. They are able to complete the move quickly and more efficiently. They even know the safest routes to use to dispatch your belongings and how to maneuver the trucks in bad weather.
  • Your safety: Without the necessary skills, you won't be able to haul heavy pieces of furniture from your home and load them into the trucks. A slight mistake may cause serious bodily harm that can lead to several nights in hospital. Professional movers are here to make sure you're safe during the move by doing all the heavy lifting.

Ways to find a professional moving company

  • Determine your needs. If you're moving long distance, it's ideal to hire an interstate mover. Different companies offer different types of services and the costs vary as well. It's important to enlist the services of a moving company that will accommodate your needs.
  • A reliable mover is compliant and has the relevant credentials to run a transport business. Visit the FMCSA website to look for your mover and check their history. The site provides access to valuable information on moving companies such as their contact details, the location of their premises and the number of complaints lodged against them. This will help you pick a mover wisely.
  • Get insights from other people’s perspective by reading online reviews. Consumers leave negative or positive comments depending on their moving experience with moving companies. However, don’t believe everything you read online. Some consumers may be biased and leave a misleading comment.

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!
