Takoma Park Long Distance Moving Companies

For a move to flow smoothly, there are factors you have to consider, the main one being looking for a professional moving company. If you're relocating to Takoma Park, A-1 Auto Transport is the right choice. Based in Maryland, we have a variety of moving services aimed at making your move painless. We also transport vehicles.

Top 5 moving tips for a stress-free move

  • Find out from your moving company items they won’t move. These include explosives, flammable materials such as gasoline and corrosive materials like acids. These materials pose safety hazards, and you may have to dispose of them or give away to neighbors.
  • Start packing several weeks in advance. This will give you the freedom to pack at your own pace and to arrange the boxes so that they are not in your way. When moving day finally approaches, you'll be ready and relaxed.
  • Don’t just get any boxes. Look for the right boxes with firm edges that can hold your items without falling apart. If possible, get brand new boxes which are free of pests and bugs. Most of these boxes can easily be found in local stores or bookstores.
  • Downsize your household items as you pack. Have a separate box where you'll be throwing in stuff that you won't need at your new place. Moving with less stuff reduces your load and consequently your moving cost.
  • Clean your new house before moving in. The last thing you want is to try to clean the house while the movers are bringing in the boxes and furniture.

Why you should consider a professional moving company

  • Peace of mind. Planning the process of moving is not an easy task and can be overwhelming and tiresome. Professional movers understand the best ways to handle your move and ensure your items are packed safely. You don’t have to get involved in any physical activity; the movers will handle everything.
  • Liability. When you hire a professional mover, they will be held liable for your possessions and will do all they can to protect them from any damages. If you move on your own and an item breaks, it's your responsibility to repair or replace it. But with movers, your items are insured making you eligible for compensation in case of a loss.
  • Reliability.  As much as your friends love you, they know how taxing a move can be and most of them would rather skip this. But unlike your friends, professional movers are trained to undertake such tasks with ease. They’ll make sure they are at your doorstep early in the morning to begin the move.

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.

Tips to find a reputable mover

The first step is to get recommendations from people you know. You can trust your friends, family members or co-workers to give you honest judgment about a particular moving company they have used in the past. Any information you get is valuable, and it's up to you to decide which company is right for you.

If you don’t get any suggestions, use the internet to find reliable movers. Most companies have websites where they advertise their services and rates of moving. Shortlist companies that have caught your eye and pick the best among them.

For your safety, only work with licensed movers. The FMCSA has the responsibility of registering and licensing moving companies. Interstate movers must have a USDOT and MC Number to be allowed to carry household items. In-state movers need permits from their respective states.

Give preference to a BBB Accredited mover. This is the highest recognition from the Better Business Bureau which signifies that the company upholds professional business practices and offers excellent services. Such a company can be trusted to handle your items professionally.

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!
