Moving items like pool tables and pianos is a daunting task. The weight and size intimidates even your strongest friends. You need to have experience and equipment to move such items.
Moving companies have winches that can lift the items several storeys high. They avoid stairs since it is risky and there is less space. The company can also dismantle a king size bed or L-couch and move it in bits.
Movers are strong and have the stamina to handle bulky items for long hours. They use their numbers to lift the item and firmly grip it until it is loaded. Items like refrigerators are strapped on dollies and moved under watchful eyes.
Moving companies create an inventory for all packed and loaded items. They use the walk-through checklist as a guide. They know how many items are being moved and how to move them.
The company knows they are liable for any loss. After loading, they check the house to ensure no item has been left behind. The items are loaded according to the weight and size. Heavy items are loaded first and at the bottom while light items go on top. Liquids are tightly sealed and put in plastic pouches.
The trucks are fitted with tracking devices to ensure safety and efficient communication. In case a difficult situation arises, the driver liaises with the office to find alternatives to avoid time wastage.
Moving companies ensure the customer does not experience loss.

Prepare ahead by scheduling a date months in advance. Avoid the summer season due to the huge volumes of moves being conducted. The best movers are unavailable while the rest charge high prices.
Mark dates on the calendar using bright markers. Put reminders on electronic gadgets and on your diary. Ensure moving days do not conflict with other activities.
Wrap items with soft linen to save on the amount of bubble wrap used. Wrap glassware with recycled newspaper and pack it amongst clothing. Make holes on the sides of boxes to enable better lifting.
Place the packed items in strategic locations to ensure movers load them easily. Dismantle large furniture and dismount electronics before the company arrives.

Working with his mentor Tony Taylor, Joe Webster has learned the ins and outs of this industry which is largely misunderstood.

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.
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!
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 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!
