What to Expect with Your Long Distance Move

What to Expect with Your Austin Long-Distance Residential Move

The more miles you need to move from Austin, the greater you’ll appreciate the services of A-1 Freeman Moving Group. Long-distance moving is second nature to us. We’ve been helping customers do it for some time now, after all. A lot of our help entails our being a model of strength, confidence, and proficiency for those who’ve never moved from state to state or across the country. Our fastidious attention to detail, our savvy professionalism, and our wide array of flexible, personalized moving services always seem to win the day. You’ll see that immediately in how smoothly we handle …

The Moving Process

We fulfill each and every one of the following tasks relating to your move:

FREE Ballpark Pricing

We’ll tell you approximately what you’ll pay for your move once you’ve first met with us and we’ve ascertained the sorts of moving services necessary to get you from here to “there.” To be sure, this ballpark estimate may rise or fall, depending on the services you ultimately purchase.

The Home Survey

Our objective – in every case – is to meet your needs and work within the context of your schedule. That’s why we offer two estimating options. Select the most appropriate for you:

  1. In-Home Consultation. One of our expert estimators gets together with you at your home to review the elements of your move and conduct a room-to-room accounting of the items you’ll need transported.
  2. Video Inventory. You’ll connect directly with our estimator via your mobile phone and record a video of yourself doing a walk-through of your home as you point out what requires moving. It’s the last word in technological convenience!

The Written Estimate

After initially talking with you, taking the move options you’ve selected into consideration, and reviewing the results of your Home Survey, we present you with a written estimate that more specifically sets the financial outlay required for your long-distance move.

The Customer Agreement

Signing this agreement – your move contract – affirms that you’ve consented to our terms and pricing. Delineated in the agreement are …

  • the price of the move,
  • safety and insurance information,
  • the move locations,
  • move dates and times, and
  • descriptions of the moving services you’ve chosen.

The Move Plan

Here’s where you’ll be introduced to your very own A-1 Freeman Moving Group Move Concierge. He or she will guide you in planning your move from start to finish. The pre-move planning gets off to a start with a confirmation of the dates, addresses, and services you’ve chosen. Then you’ll be given a preview of what to expect from your move. Have no fear, ask questions! That’s precisely what your Move Concierge is trained for – to provide you with answers, keep you up to speed throughout the move process, and keep that whole procedure going smoothly, expeditiously, and flawlessly.

The Pre-Move Confirmation

When your move date is close, we alert you by phone or email to affirm it, insuring that all dates, times, locations, and other critical aspects still meet your approval. This also serves to bolster your confidence that we’ll be on hand and ready to go when the time finally does arrive.


We provide three ways to help un-hassle the hassle of packing. choose the one that best satisfies your wishes and your wallet:

  1. Do the packing yourself; if you prefer, we can provide you with the packing materials.
  2. Let our movers help you pack everything.
  3. Option our personalized plan: you get the packing started and we help pack specialty items.


Our loading methodology is simple, organized, safe, and elegant:

  • Truck and crew get there.
  • Crew introduce themselves.
  • Crew performs a walk-through of your home to get acclimated to it and the furnishings and personal items they’ll be moving.
  • Crew readies home to shield it: stair railings, cramped corners, doors and doorjamb are padded; carpets are covered to keep high-traffic areas dirt- and damage-free.
  • Moving boxes are labeled and catalogued by room, taking into account your needs as you settle into your new home.
  • Pieces such as beds, entertainment centers, and swing sets are skillfully broken down for transport.
  • Quality checks are conducted throughout the loading process.
  • Communication also is maintained with your Move Concierge.


At your new home we’re equally careful and systematic in unloading and placing your possessions.

  • We use padding and carpet covers to protect you new home from any move-in damage.
  • We systematically place your household goods and personal effects in the rooms you direct us to put them in.
  • We reassemble the equipment and furnishings we broke down for the move.
  • If you need us to unpack items for you, just tell us and we’ll handle it.
  • We can, if you want, also take away all the empty boxes and packing supplies when your move is over.

The Post-Move Follow-up

After the move, your Move Concierge will phone you to see if everything went to your satisfaction. He or she also will talk with you about any unresolved matters that may still need taking care of. Even more important, your Move Concierge will, on behalf of all of us at A-1 Freeman Moving Group, THANK YOU for picking us as your long-distance mover!

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
