Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time to move?

If there is a choice, most moving companies suggest you select a time other than summer or end of the month. The heaviest demands placed on moving companies are June through mid-September. A-1 moving understands that there are many factors which will influence your choice of when you move. We operate year round and will help you design a move that will accommodate your busy schedule.

How long does it take to move?

That depends on many factors including the time of year, weather conditions, time required to load and unload and direction and distance your shipment is traveling.

When should I call a moving company?

The earlier the better. The more time you can give, the more likely we will be able to meet your preferred dates. If possible we suggest 2-3 weeks for a move although, for a smaller move we can often schedule with as little as one to two days’ notice.

How and when should I pay for the move?

We require that all charges be paid by cash, credit card, money order, cashier check or debit card. If you pay with a debit card, check with your bank on limits that you can use per day. We require payment at the end of the move.

Can my possessions be stored temporarily?

If you are unable to take immediate possession of your new residence, your belongings can be stored at our local warehouse until you are ready to move in at a reasonable cost.
