Waconia Long Distance Moving Companies

Did you know that the average American home has over 30,000 items? While moving on your own is an option, hiring an experienced moving company will save you time, effort and money. At A-1 Auto Transport, Minnesota, we do the best we can to give you a memorable moving experience. Don’t let your move to Waconia trouble you, hand over the process and let us do the rest. We also relocate vehicles.

The best tips for a stress-free move

  • Get organized: Before you start packing, make sure you have the necessary packing supplies. Boxes, sealing tape, bubble wrap and marker pens must be of high quality to make your work easier. Designate a packing room where you'll have easy access to these materials.
  • Pack breakables separately: Glassware, china, vases and any other delicate items should be handled with care. Use packing paper or unprinted newsprint to wrap them before carefully placing them in the boxes. Dishes should be packed vertically to minimize chances of breaking.
  • Labeling: Use a color-coding system to label your boxes. Pick a different color to represent each room and mark the boxes with the corresponding stickers. For instance, if you pick blue for the living room, use blue labels to mark all boxes that should be placed in the living room.
  • Pack similar items together: Pack room by room to ensure similar items are in the same boxes. Resist the temptation of jumping from one room to another as this may lead to mixing up your household items. Start with the kitchen since it’s the room with the most items.

Why hire a professional moving company?

  • It's cheaper than DIY. Most people underestimate the cost of moving and end up spending more than they had budgeted for. There are many expenses you need to consider like hiring a truck, gas for the truck, insurance for the truck, hiring equipment and people to load your items. Combine these expenses and you realize you'd be better off hiring a professional mover.
  • Reliability. Although your friends might be willing to help you move, deep down they hate the thought of moving. Some may bail out on you the last minute leaving you stranded. Avoid the stress of depending on friends by hiring a professional moving company. This is their work and nothing makes them happier. They will be there on moving day to transport your items to your destination without delay.
  • Saves time. The process of moving can be long and complicated especially if you're moving on your own. You have to pack, look for a truck, load your items and drive yourself. This can take you weeks which makes it uneconomical. But with a moving company, they focus on your move so that you can focus on other things like finding a school for your kids.

Tips to find the best moving company

  • Start your search by looking for a mover in your locality. Ask around the neighborhood or inquire from your friends if they have suggestions about a company you can rely on to offer quality services. Shortlist a few companies and do further research before choosing a company.
  • Check online for moving companies listed on the American Moving and Storage Association. The ProMover program was established to weed out rogue movers. Members of AMSA have to undergo a strict annual background check to make sure they are legitimate and conform to the set Professional Code of Ethics.
  • Make sure you're working with a licensed and insured moving company. The safety of your possessions is in the hands of strangers and you wouldn’t want anything happening to them. Hence, it’s crucial that you verify the credentials of the company you're considering by looking them up in the FMCSA website.
  • A reputable mover should issue you with a copy of ‘Consumer Rights and Responsibilities’ booklet which is a guide to help you prepare for your move. Avoid movers that fail to follow this mandatory regulation.

Satisfied Customers

“I am meticulous when it comes to everything. At first, I was thinking of just driving all the way to Illinois from New Jersey. A friend recommended me to go to A1 Auto Transport and told me a lot of good things about them. I refused initially because I had filed a 4 day leave just to drive and visit my mother. But things did not go well. My boss asked me to cancel my leave because a very important client asked for an urgent meeting, and the manager could not attend to it. I was hopeless and took the risk of asking help from A1. The notice was short and I forgot I needed to inform them in advance. After a couple of hours, I received a call and they told me they found a way to book me with no extra fees. I am so thankful I got to attend to my work matters. I did not get to see my mother, but the vehicle and items inside it were in perfect condition as if it was me who took care of it. I owe you guys big time! I got one huge deal from our client.”

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“I’m so glad I met you Joe!! A truly fortunate experience. Having to transport a car to Minnesota, I was stunned to see the company, who was supposed to take care of it, just vanish. I couldn’t reach them anymore, like they went bankrupt overnight. However, I was lucky enough to not pay anything, so I simply researched some more until I found A1 Auto Transport. Joe answered my call the first time and we soon agreed on a date and a quote. Unfortunately, I got caught up in work and forgot about it. The order was not confirmed, so Joe must’ve thought I changed my mind. I called him the next day and arranged for a new date. This time, I made a note on my phone and it went well. I replied to his email this time, and the driver arrived at a parking lot down the street on time, as promised. The driver was nice enough to not mention my previous mistake. He delivered my car in just 3 days. Upon careful inspection, there were no scratches or damage done to it during transport. Joe was there along with the driver and they both waited patiently until I was satisfied. Thanks!”

“A1 Auto is kind of like your favourite mom and pop pizza parlour, the one you can’t get enough of despite all the new, expensive avant-garde pizza shops that have mushroomed conspicuously across the entire neighbourhood and seem to have taken over the whole world...but not you. Because you value quality and genuine customer service, and know this business understands and works doubly hard to give you your money’s worth. I’ve been using A1 Auto Transport whenever I left California for business: they may not be the cheapest car transporters around, but the sheer professionalism, dedication, and heart they put into their work is just amazing and worth my every dime. I’m probably one of the most sceptical people you would ever meet. I’m rarely convinced when bombarded with dubious, self-congratulating ads of companies that look like they’ve spent tons of money on marketing materials just to lure your average guy in. A1 Auto Transport is the complete opposite of these companies. My car always arrived promptly on schedule, never with a hint of scratch or dirt or damage, and they keep me updated every step of the process. When you’ve found a company whose genuine care for their customers comes naturally, you stand by them no matter what. It’s the most logical thing to do.”

“A1 Auto Transport helped me move a vehicle to Iowa from Houston. I was a bit nervous, no knowing much about such services. Thanks to Joe, I was able to clear the fog a little. He answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that left no room for interpretation. The details were straightforward. I picked Sunday as the pickup date, since I wasn’t at work, and they accommodated me. The truck arrived an hour early, yet the driver patiently waited for me to arrive. He thoroughly checked my car for scratches or anything that might affect the transport then drove it onto the truck. I was given a 2 day time window during which the car was supposed to arrive in, and it got to Iowa in the evening of the first day. The trip didn’t damage it at all. Next time a friend wants to move, I’ll surely recommend A1 Auto Transport.”
