Did you know that the average adult person in the US will move approximately 11 times in their entire life? Furthermore, the moving masses in the US are more than those who visit Disneyland annually! These are just some of the myriad surprisingly real facts about moving. Despite Americans moving once every 6 years, most of them still consider moving a stressful process. Well, at A-1 Auto Transport Inc, we believe that a move will be as challenging as you let it. This means that you need to be adequately prepared to move in order to prevent it from being a stressful event. As a student preparing to move to or from William E.

How to achieve a stress-free student move

Moving as a student need not be stressful if you follow our tried and tested moving tips and advice.

  • Look for free boxes and supplies: Moving is a costly venture, and if you can find any way to cut costs, do it. One way to do this is to find free boxes and moving supplies from furniture stores, grocery stores and liquor stores. All these outlets will be happy to let you have as many boxes as you need.
  • Have some cash in hand: On moving day, it is essential to have some cash in hand for any last-minute purchases. Moreover, this cash will come in handy to tip the moving crew at the end of the day for a job well done.
  • Keep your valuables safe: All your valuable items such as jewellery, money and legal documents should always be within your reach. Place all of these items in a purse or a bag that you should keep with you at all times to prevent loss in the moving confusion.

Why you should hire a professional moving company

Moving as a student is considered to be a small move. However, no move is too small for a mover. Here are some reasons why you are better off using professional moving services.

  • Reliability: A professional moving company will provide more reliable services than your friends or family would. This is because they know how to carry out each moving task professionally without needing a break until the work is finished.
  • Time saving: The time you will take to complete your move will be reduced by more than half with the help of a professional mover.

Tips to hire the best student moving company

Not every moving company will provide you with the services that you need. In order to find the best moving company, here are a few tips to observe.

  • Research local companies: Look in the phone book and online listings for some reputable local moving companies. Additionally, you should ask friends and relatives as well as small local businesses to recommend some moving companies.
  • Research professional accreditations: Find out what kind of rankings the Better Business Bureau has given the companies you are researching. In addition, research the customer reviews found on this platform. Needless to say, avoid companies that have lots of negative reviews.

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!
