A-1 Freeman Moving Group can help you out. We’ve helped thousands of San Antonio people move across the street or across town in our years of business. What our customers really appreciate is our hassle-free performance of …

The Moving Process

Take a look at the steps:

FREE Ballpark Pricing

When you first contact us to discuss your move, we’ll make sure you get a FREE ballpark estimate of the cost – based on a elementary awareness of the services you’ll require. This figure may increase or decrease, relative to further assessment and what move options you choose.

The Home Survey

We give you two options for helping us come to a final, more precise estimate – either of which is designed to facilitate your schedule in a way that’s most convenient for you:

  1. an in-person, in-home meeting with one of our skilled estimators – featuring a room-by-room accounting of the possessions you’ll need transported, or
  2. a video inventory that makes use of leading-edge technology, directly connecting you with our estimator by means of your smart phone as you move through your home and point out what you’ll want moved.

The Written Estimate

After reviewing our consultations with you and the results of your Home Survey, we’ll deliver a written estimate of what your move will cost you. This written estimate nails that cost down with far greater accuracy than our initial ballpark estimate. It pertains to each and every aspect of your shipment, including all moving services you’ve selected.

The Customer Agreement

After you’ve determined your best options and accepted our terms and pricing, you’ll sign an agreement with us. Consider this your move contract fixing locations, move dates and times, the moving services you’ve said you prefer, and other details such as cost, safety, and insurance. With this in hand, we book your move.

The Move Plan

This is when your personal A-1 Freeman Moving Group Move Concierge contacts you to …

  • vet your move dates and the addresses involved
  • affirm which of our services you desire
  • inform you of what to expect from your move, and
  • answer your questions.

Your Move Concierge is your one point of contact from this point forward. He or she will make sure that you’re fully aware of all that’s happening with your local residential move – to ensure as trouble-free, headache-free, and harmonious a move as anyone can provide.

The Pre-Move Confirmation

As your move date gets close, we’ll email you or call you to ensure that everything previously set up is still a “go.” We’ll make a final affirmation of dates, times, locations, and other factors regarding the move to keep it on track.


As always, we give you options to meet your needs and budget. You can do the packing by yourself (and we can provide you with the packing materials, if you prefer) … you can arrange for our full-service San Antonio movers to assist you in packing … or you can go with a custom-crafted plan where you get the packing started and we assist with specialty items.


When the truck and crew get to your place, they’ll introduce themselves and do a walk-through of your home to get an overview of the room flow and what needs to be moved out. Then they’ll prepare the home to safeguard it, padding stair rails, cramped corners, doors and jambs, and placing carpet covers to keep high-traffic areas free of dirt and damage. Next, they’ll follow a systematic loading procedure, where moving boxes are labeled and inventoried according to rooms and your needs when you arrive at your new home. Components that need disassembling – from entertainment centers to beds to swing sets – are meticulously torn apart now. Throughout the loading process, quality checks are conducted and communication with your Move Concierge is maintained.


Once we get your belongings safely to your new home – in good time and in one piece, we take all precautions unloading it. Our delivery services encompass …

  • deploying protective pads and carpet covers to keep your your new home safe from any sort of damage during the move-in process,
  • systematic unloading – where we unload your belongings into the rooms you want them in, at your direction,
  • reassembly of equipment broken down intentionally for the move – beds, the like,
  • unpacking – just say the word; we’ll do it, and
  • debris removal – where, if you so specify, our team will get rid of all the empty moving boxes and other such debris after the unpacking.

The Post-Move Follow-up

This is the point at which your personal A-1 Freeman Moving Group Move Concierge contacts you to see how you felt about the move … gauge the quality of the services we executed … discuss any unresolved matters that may still need taking care of … and, most assuredly, THANK YOU for picking A-1 Freeman Moving Group! Your absolute satisfaction is essential to enhancing the quality of the services we provide for everyone.

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.
