Tips to make moving house a breeze

  • Use Ziploc bags to pack bottles containing liquids that can spill and damage the other items. Group the items depending on their usability. Don’t pack toothpaste with cleaning soap!
  • Make your bed as soon as you arrive at your new house. The last thing you want is making it when you’re exhausted from the long journey and all the unpacking. With the bed set, you can simply crawl in and take a well-deserved nap.
  • If you have pets, make arrangements to have someone take care of them on moving day. Pets get over excited with a change of environment and this may slow down the movers. Additionally, check with your movers if they offer pet transport and make sure the conditions are conducive.
  • Avoid ordering food if you have less than a week to move out. Perishable food will not last the long journey and you risk damaging the other items. To avoid wastage, give any remaining food to your family or friends.

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 why you need a professional moving company

  • Reliability: Professional movers, unlike friends, will keep their word and show up at your doorstep to carry out the move. They are trained for this type of work and will help you move within the shortest time possible. Professional movers rarely fail to show up since they have a reputation to build and a contract to honor.
  • Trucks: When you hire a professional moving company, their experts will take one look at your household and suggest the right truck size to accommodate your items in a single trip. You can’t use just any truck. The mover’s trucks are fitted with air suspension to further protect your items during transit.
  • Protection for your items: The law requires moving companies to provide the basic insurance cover of $0.60 per pound per item. Although this is helpful, it’s wise to purchase additional coverage for additional protection for your expensive items. Talk to your mover and decide the best policy to cover your belongings.
  • Professional services: Moving companies do more than just transport your household items. They are friendly, courteous and willing to help you relocate with less difficulty. They know how to plan a move efficiently and make sure there are no glitches. They offer services you can rely on.

Ways to find a trustworthy moving company

Don’t hire a moving company before doing thorough research to establish its credibility. With the number of moving scams on the rise, it’s safe to hire a ProMover member. This initiative by the American Moving and Storage Association protects consumers from falling prey to rogue operators by subjecting movers through rigorous background checks. A mover can only be certified if they adhere to the association’s Code of Professional Ethics.

Is your mover licensed? A reliable moving company complies with the federal and state regulations. If it’s an interstate move, the mover should have a USDOT Number displayed on their trucks and website. Local movers should be licensed by the Michigan Public Service Commission.

Find out how long the moving company has been in operation. Experienced movers offer better services than movers who are just starting the business. Gather as much information about your mover as possible so that you're sure about your choice. You can never be too careful when it comes to entrusting strangers with your possessions.

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!
