Why you need a moving company

Dependability and efficiency

Moving companies can be relied upon to conduct a successful move. They know the more reliable they are, the more positive the customer reviews. They arrive at the agreed time well prepared for the move.

They have handled these kinds of moves before and have the necessary experience. They mitigate any unexpected eventualities to avoid delays and wastage of time.

  • They have real-time satellite technology to avoid dangerous roads and use the shortest routes
  • They have adequate labor to deal with all the items
  • Movers have the right equipment to safely dismantle items

Using friends to help with your move will be stressful since some may not show up. Some may show up, but they will work sluggishly. They are inexperienced and hence expect frequent delays and confusion which results in inefficiency.


Moving companies have the most appropriate techniques to ensure your items are packed, loaded and delivered promptly in the safest manner.

  • They use new and quality corrugated boxes which can withstand the weight of the items.
  • They are professionally trained to pack and wrap items. They use padding to ensure there is no movement inside the boxes.
  • They use anti-static peanuts when packing delicate items in boxes.
  • The items are loaded in air cushioned carriers and strapped on the sides to prevent bumping into each other.
  • They use experienced drivers. They are further assisted by real-time satellite navigation to avoid heavy traffic, extreme weather and potholes.

How to select the best mover in Urbandale


Conduct a background search with AMSA. The association registers the most reliable state to state movers. All movers are thoroughly vetted before registration. All members have a Promover logo for identification.


Interstate movers have a USDOT number. Use the carrier number to validate the company’s records with FMSCA.


  • The safety rating of the moving company
  • Pending violations
  • The company’s physical addresses
  • How many drivers and moving vehicles the company owns


Use sites such as Yelp or BBB to view customer reviews and ratings. Search for customers within your locality. Any mover rated A and above by Better Business Bureau is worthwhile.

Tips for an easy move to Urbandale

After choosing the most reliable moving company, set a convenient moving date. Schedule the date during winter and autumn seasons.

  • There are fewer people moving and hence the movers are less busy
  • The charges are reduced
  • There is availability of the best moving companies

Rent moving supplies from U-Haul. They also have a customer exchange forum where you can exchange moving supplies. Alternatively, get free moving materials at

Ensure you are 80% ready before the movers arrive. Confirm this by dismantling large furniture and dismounting electronics. Place the items close to the exit.

Use mobile packing apps for the best packing tips. It also has professional packing services from qualified personnel.

Perform tasks such as switching addresses and utilities a week before moving day. Visit your new premises before moving in and familiarize yourself with the surroundings.

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!
