Arlington Heights State To State Moving Services

Arlington Heights Long Distance Moving Companies

Moving is a significant step to take in one’s life. You step into a different world. It brings along major changes that need careful planning and execution. With millions of decisions to be made, you need the services of a professional moving company to help you move with ease. A-1 Auto Transport, Illinois, is a leading moving company ready to dive in and make your move to Arlington Heights memorable. We offer comprehensive moving services including vehicle transport.

Tips for easy moving

  • If you are moving your fridge, have it serviced a few days prior to moving. Make sure it's thoroughly clean and completely dry to prevent the growth of molds and get rid of any nasty smell.
  • Get as many boxes as possible for packing. You can get them for free by visiting local stores or checking online sites such as Craigslist. Start packing several weeks in advance to make work easier on moving day.
  • There are household items that movers don’t move. These include guns, houseplants, and flammable materials. You can decide to give away to your neighbors, or transport them yourself.
  • To stay organized during the process, list down all the tasks that you must accomplish before moving day. Give yourself adequate time to complete each task before moving to the next. If you follow the list strictly, you’ll be focused on the move and have less stress.
  • Find a babysitter to help take care of your kids so that you can pay undivided attention to your move. You need to have a clear mind with fewer distractions to make wise decisions and ensure that the process progresses smoothly.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods nationwide. Call 888-509-3213 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.

3 reasons why you need a professional moving company

  • Inviting your friends to help you move is a good idea. But what happens when they break one of your precious items when packing? You’ll be at a loss since they probably won’t replace the item. With professional movers, all your items are covered against damage that may occur during the moving process. They provide insurance cover for your items, and you can expect to be compensated partially or fully depending on the policy you picked.
  • Movers are efficient in their work. They are properly trained and know how to utilize space when packing. They are fast when loading and unloading. When you hire professional movers, you can be assured that you’ll be settled at your new house within a day or two.
  • Professional movers make your safety and that of your items a top priority during every move. They have sufficient skills to carry heavy and bulky items down the stairs without breaking anything. They use special equipment to handle your belongings and load them into the trucks with ease. With professional movers, there’s no risk of injuries at all and your items will arrive at your doorstep in one piece.

How to find a reliable mover

Look for the company you consider hiring on the Better Business Bureau website. Here you can see the history of the company and check what people are saying in the comments section. Also, check the number of complaints filed against your mover and if they were resolved.

Make sure to hire a company that’s compliant with the government regulations. If you are moving to another state, ask your mover to provide you with their USDOT Number. The Illinois Commerce Commission is in charge of licensing movers operating within the state.

Ask your friends and family about moving companies they have used in the past and liked. Visit their offices and check out their equipment. Ask as many questions as possible to find out if their staff is knowledgeable and professional. Remember to read their contract before signing.

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!
