Urbana State To State Moving Services

Urbana Long Distance Moving Companies

Maybe your job hunt is unsuccessful, or you know you can do more, just not at your current place. Moving to a new place can turn things around. In order to make your move to Urbana successful, consider working with an experienced mover. We are based in Ohio and offer world-class services including vehicle transport.

Top tips for a stress-free move

  1. Pack a first night kit. You need the essential items within easy reach because it is highly unlikely you will unpack immediately you arrive at your new home. Put items like towels, a change of clothes, toiletries, phone chargers and medication among others in a clear plastic bag that is easily identifiable.
  2. Work with a timeline. The only way to stay organized and accomplish tasks according to plan is to create a realistic schedule that gives you ample time to work at your own pace. Write down things you wish to do before moving out and stick to the guide.
  3. Cancel subscriptions and services that you no longer need. Settle all the bills you have and make arrangements to transfer utilities to your new home. This way, come moving time, your house will be well connected.
  4. Use cling wrap to prevent leakages. Containers and bottles containing liquids should be sealed properly. Simply unscrew the lid, place the cling wrap on the opening and screw the lid back. Put the containers in plastic bags just in case they break while in transit.
  5. Pack the kitchen and bedroom last. You might still need to use the items in those rooms until the last days. Plus, you will need them first when you get to your new home. So, let the movers load them last so they can be unloaded first.

How important is hiring a professional moving company?

  • Affordable services. Despite what most people think, it is economical to hire a professional moving company. The expenses that you will incur moving on your own can easily surpass your budget allocation; not forgetting the hidden costs that you are likely to incur. Movers, on the other hand, know every step and have planned for it. You only pay one bill once your items are delivered to your new home.
  • Insurance coverage. The lowest level of liability (60 cents per pound per item) is a requirement by law and is covered in your moving cost. This, in a way, protects your belongings though not adequately. If you desire to protect your items further, consider purchasing additional coverage. Discuss with your mover and select the most suitable insurance policy.
  • Your safety. Don’t risk getting hurt by trying to move heavy stuff. It requires skills and teamwork which you can get when you hire a professional moving company. They have the equipment to handle items of different sizes and safely load them into the trucks. This is tough work and they are more qualified, hence it is best if you allow them to take control of the move.

Ways to find a reliable moving company

  • Start by checking if they are operating legally. The movers should have a valid license and a USDOT Number if they are moving items across state borders. Local movers are regulated by the state in which they operate.
  • To learn more about the reputation of a company, check the BBB website. The reviews and ratings of past customers will point you in the right direction. The site also provides information about any complaints filed against your mover and if they were resolved.
  • Talk to friends, neighbors or co-workers to get recommendations about companies in your locality. List down the suggested movers and do your own research so that you are sure of whom you’re working with. Remember tastes and preferences vary and what your friend liked might not please you.

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!
