The best tips for relocating without stress

  • It is advisable to pack the TV and computers in their original boxes. If you have important information on your computer, be sure to back it up.
  • Plan early so that you have sufficient time to pack your belongings. If you hire a mover, then they will provide the packing materials. But if you decide to pack yourself, you will need plenty of boxes and other packing supplies such as sealing tape and markers.
  • Use clean butchers paper to wrap items instead of the newspaper because it will stain your items. Glass plates, wine glasses, and other breakables should be packed in boxes lined with soft clothes to reduce the impact when they are moved or stacked.
  • Update your address at the local post office so that your mail can be forwarded to your new residence. List down companies, organizations, and people in your circle that you wish to keep in touch with and send them the new address.
  • Use Ziploc bags to store screws, nuts, and bolts from dismantled furniture. Attach the plastic bags to the pieces of furniture they belong to; this makes reassembling easy.

The importance of hiring a professional mover

  • The right equipment: There are household items that need special tools and equipment to move them. Professional movers have the manpower to safely handle the heavy stuff without breaking it. The movers also have trucks of different sizes to transport your belongings to any place. Loading and unloading is made easier by the use of hoisting straps and dollies.
  • Insurance coverage: No company is allowed to operate without the required worker's compensation. It is mandatory that they provide adequate insurance cover for household items. This means that in case of damage or loss, the movers will be held liable and will be obligated to repair or replace the damaged items.
  • Affordability: The moving cost tends to be higher when you move on your own due to lack of expertise. And you also risk damaging your household items due to poor handling. Professional movers make it their business to deliver services that suit your moving needs. The expenses are billed as one and you only pay the amount agreed.

Tips for finding a reliable moving company

Find out if the mover you are interested in has storage space. Sometimes, a move doesn’t always go as planned. Maybe the house is smaller than we thought or you have items that you're not sure what to do with. A reputable mover should be able to provide secure storage facilities for your items.

A reliable moving company is supposed to issue you a copy of ‘Consumer Rights and Responsibilities’ brochure. It contains step by step guidelines on how to prepare for your move and what to expect before, during and after your move. This is a requirement by law and a mover who does not give you the booklet should be avoided.

Look for a BBB Accredited moving company. The performance and reputation of a mover are displayed through good customer service and professional moving services. Check the number of complaints filed against your mover before making your final decision. Also, check the overall ratings of your mover to establish if they are reliable.

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!
