Yes, moving is a big deal as some of us may know. It takes a toll on us even though it may not show. We’re anxious, stressed, and over all a mess and we want nothing more than to put our minds at rest. But how can we, when all that we see is work and preparation. We turn to movers for help out of desperation. But finding the right one is not always tranquil because not everyone has their banks full. It takes time and exploration to discover who will give you the most dedication. Once you find the one, you will no longer be bitter but here are some things you should consider.

First, considering the companies commitment and enthusiasm. Does this company have your best interest in protecting the things that you hold true to your heart? Your valuables are important to you and have been in your life for many years and possibly generations. They hold memories that have the possibility of being forever forgotten if damaged. Thus, make sure that the company has the qualifications and drive to protects your belongings. In addition, pay attention to insurance, this allows you to take the actions needed if you’re belongings are broken. This is important because you never know what could happen on the journey. Many people take this for advantage and end up in a drastic situation. I am aware of the loss and disappointment of this happening.

 Years ago, a family friend of mine was traveling across the country with all of her belongings when a fire broke out in the moving truck. All of her things were ruined and vanished in the fire and she unable to recover them. This put her in a very depressing state of mind knowing all the things she cared about and cherished were gone. She was unable to replace the memories and the significance those possessions had. As a result, she now advocates and emphases the importance of insurance and choosing the correct company. Furthermore, evaluate what the company will be able to bring to the table. Determine if they will assist you in packing and provide any packing materials. Then evaluate how often and how much is included. In general, this will give you a better intake when choosing which company is the right one for you.

Second, consider the cost and the timing of the moving company. An abundant sum of people are moving due to jobs and a number of other things that may take a toll on the amount of money they may have. Moving involves, packing, cleaning, paying off bills, and often times refurbishing. After that amount of obligations, the price of travel and delivery should not be a large debt as well. When thinking about costs, ponder the cost by distance, time in transit, and the amount of rooms that will be packed. In addition, consider miscellaneous costs as well. This includes things such as boxes, labels, and tape. When packing, it is easy to get wrapped up in the amount of work needed and realize the amount of money that is necessary. It is helpful to find local stores or business that are willing to give you there used but stable boxes.

 This substitutes for the cost moving boxes and allows you to be eco-friendlier by recycling. Moreover, many people are in a hurry and or rush to make the transition as quickly as possible. This is due to the urgent need to start working and/or for their children to begin and get acclimated to school. Thus, it is important to access the amount of time it may take to get to the location. It is common that during travel there may be mishaps and delays. Things such as mechanical issues or a constant need for gas. One should discuss the penalties for these circumstances as they could take a toll on the experience with the company. Also, it is advised to be aware of the amount of time until you have access to your belongings. Some may be more needed then others at a given point in time, it is suggested to keep essentials separate. In full, the budget and scheduling are two practical things that have a heavy effect on the process of moving. They vary for each person ad researching which fits you best is crucial.

Third, compare and assess all options. Many companies offer different types of services and some may cater to your needs more than others. It is essential to be aware of your needs and expectations for the best results possible. In order to do so, make a moving check list of things that are essential to do and or pack before. Analyze this list and compare it will different moving companies. Due to liability and insurance, some of the companies may not be able to attend to your specific necessities. Additionally, some may assume that it is essential to use a professional moving company in general. However, in some cases it may be more beneficial and more cost effective to make this move on your own. Based upon how much is being brought and the cost in total, some may be better off handling it on their own.

All in all, choosing a moving company should not be taken lightly. There are many out there but not all suit your needs. They are a topic that should be heavily researched and carefully examined. It is essential to understand your needs and wants before discussing then with the company. They should have the same grit and sense of carefulness that you would have for your belongings. They should understand the importance of the safety of your belongings and the amount of meaning they hold for you. Lastly, after comparing all options, a professional company should be the best choice and method possible for transportation. All things considered; your property is more than stuff. They are items you deem valuable.

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!
