St. Michael State To State Moving Services

St. Michael Long Distance Moving Companies

Over 40 million Americans move annually for business or family related reasons. For a smooth moving experience to St. Michael, you need a company that understands your moving needs and helps you achieve your goals. Hiring a Minnesota based mover is your best chance to move with less stress. We offer a wide range of superior services including vehicle transport.

Simple hacks for a successful move

  • Create a well-structured plan that includes information such as the mover you're going to hire, the moving date, and contact information. Also, list down everything you need to accomplish before moving day.
  • Find a pet sitter and babysitter for your pets and kids. Pets and young kids like to play around and with boxes everywhere, it’s not the safest environment for playing. Keeping them at bay will give you some sense of order.
  • Ask your mover if they take inventory of household items before moving day. If they do, ask for a copy for your records. The inventory is useful when confirming if your belongings were delivered in perfect condition.
  • Be available on moving day to answer any questions the movers might have. This is to avoid having items placed in the wrong places which will give you the extra work of moving them.

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.

4 reasons to hire a professional moving company

  • Cost saving: Packing takes a lot of time to finish and can be very expensive considering the packing supplies you require. Add the expenses of hiring a truck and equipment and you realize how expensive your move can be. By hiring professionals, you cut your costs by nearly a half. They charge hourly or fixed depending on distance and you only pay once your items are delivered to your new place.
  • Fewer risks: In a DIY move, there's always the risk of getting injured. Heavy items are difficult to handle and it's best if you let professionals take over. This is what they do on a daily basis and have a vast experience in lifting and carrying your expensive couch down the stairs. They have the right tools and equipment to dismantle furniture and reassemble them at your new house. This reduces the chances of you getting hurt since you won't be involved in any heavy lifting.
  • Reliability: You don’t have to depend on your friends to help you move. Professional movers provide services of high levels compared to your friends. Plus, you won't have to deal with frustrations or delays because they failed to show up. Hire a professional mover and everything will be completed without a problem.
  • Convenience: Professional movers are trained to perform moves professionally. Imagine driving for long hours and then looking for people to help you unload. Movers offer these services at your convenience. You get to pick a moving date you are comfortable with and they will do the rest including helping you unpack.

Tips to find a trustworthy mover

Most reputable movers are registered by the FMCSA. Being licensed, you are sure your move will go smoothly. With competent drivers, the movers observe public safety regulations and will deliver your items in one piece. Check their USDOT Number if it’s a long distance move and confirm if they have a permit from the Minnesota Department of Transportation if it's a local move.

Your mover should agree to an onsite survey of your items. Estimates given over the phone cannot be accurate because they don’t have the actual facts. Be wary of movers giving suspiciously low bids. They are fraudsters and will hold on to your items and ask for more pay.

A moving company should provide you with a copy of Your Rights and Responsibilities booklet. This is a requirement by the FMCSA and a mover who doesn’t follow this rule should be avoided. The booklet offers a useful guide in the planning stages of your move.

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!
