Things to Consider When You Move to (or From) Sonoma

Posted on July 30, 2020 by Allen Brown

Moving can be stressful. You have to begin your planning and preparation months in advance if you have the chance to do so. Any less than this amount of time, and you are likely to forget an important detail because you are rushing. A-1 Auto Transport is one company that wants to help you with your moving plans, no matter how far in the future your moving date is. 

Finding a Car Transport and Moving Company

For your move to or from Sonoma, you want to make sure you choose the best car transport and moving company for your belongings. Not all companies were created the same, so researching to find the best in your area is a task you will need to complete. Here are the things you should look at when choosing a company:

We would like a permanent do-follow link (not tagged “sponsored”) on:

  • See if the company is insured and licensed
    • Do they have a United States Department of Transportation Number and Motor Carrier number?
    • What kind of coverage do they provide for your household goods and car?
  • Find out about experience in your type of move
    • Companies often have one specialty. They may be able to move your belongings, or they may be able to transport your car. You want to be sure that whatever job you need for them to do, they are capable of doing. A-1 Auto Transport combines both of these worlds, making it possible for you to move your belongings and ship your car at the same time.
  • Look into their reviews
    • Word of mouth is the way that businesses grow and prosper. Make sure you look at the reviews of the company you are thinking about choosing for your move. Checking the Better Business Bureau website for accreditation and their business’ grade can offer real insight into the business.
  • Look at the services they offer
    • When you are moving to or from Sonoma, you want an expert who can help you with all the different aspects of your move. You need to find a company that is experienced with total relocation and provide packing services to back it. 

Preparation for Your Move

When you are going to move, you should make sure you pay particular attention to the details and begin preparations well in advance. You need to have a plan for your move so that it does not turn into a disaster.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) offers a checklist that can help you with your move. The checklist takes you through the stages of your move from before you move through the delivery day. Using a checklist can help you keep everything in order while the rest of your home is in a mess.

Using a checklist like the one provided by the FMCSA can keep you on task during your move. Knowing when you need to have specific items completed and by when can keep you sane during the entire process. A-1 Auto Transport also helps you keep your documents and dates in order.

Moving Doesn’t Have to Be A Job

When you choose A-1 Auto Transport for your household belongings and your car, you are choosing an ally in the moving process. A-1 Auto Transport offers many different services that make moving to or from Sonoma easier for you.

You can have a hands-free moving experience when you utilize the professional packing services. We pack, we move, we unload, and we unpack it. You will have more time to explore and get the things done in the new town that you need to get done. Choosing A-1 Auto Transport for every moving need means choosing experience and a company you can trust to get the job done quickly and safely.
