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.

Satisfied Customers

“I am meticulous when it comes to everything. At first, I was thinking of just driving all the way to Illinois from New Jersey. A friend recommended me to go to A1 Auto Transport and told me a lot of good things about them. I refused initially because I had filed a 4 day leave just to drive and visit my mother. But things did not go well. My boss asked me to cancel my leave because a very important client asked for an urgent meeting, and the manager could not attend to it. I was hopeless and took the risk of asking help from A1. The notice was short and I forgot I needed to inform them in advance. After a couple of hours, I received a call and they told me they found a way to book me with no extra fees. I am so thankful I got to attend to my work matters. I did not get to see my mother, but the vehicle and items inside it were in perfect condition as if it was me who took care of it. I owe you guys big time! I got one huge deal from our client.”

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“I’m so glad I met you Joe!! A truly fortunate experience. Having to transport a car to Minnesota, I was stunned to see the company, who was supposed to take care of it, just vanish. I couldn’t reach them anymore, like they went bankrupt overnight. However, I was lucky enough to not pay anything, so I simply researched some more until I found A1 Auto Transport. Joe answered my call the first time and we soon agreed on a date and a quote. Unfortunately, I got caught up in work and forgot about it. The order was not confirmed, so Joe must’ve thought I changed my mind. I called him the next day and arranged for a new date. This time, I made a note on my phone and it went well. I replied to his email this time, and the driver arrived at a parking lot down the street on time, as promised. The driver was nice enough to not mention my previous mistake. He delivered my car in just 3 days. Upon careful inspection, there were no scratches or damage done to it during transport. Joe was there along with the driver and they both waited patiently until I was satisfied. Thanks!”

“A1 Auto is kind of like your favourite mom and pop pizza parlour, the one you can’t get enough of despite all the new, expensive avant-garde pizza shops that have mushroomed conspicuously across the entire neighbourhood and seem to have taken over the whole world...but not you. Because you value quality and genuine customer service, and know this business understands and works doubly hard to give you your money’s worth. I’ve been using A1 Auto Transport whenever I left California for business: they may not be the cheapest car transporters around, but the sheer professionalism, dedication, and heart they put into their work is just amazing and worth my every dime. I’m probably one of the most sceptical people you would ever meet. I’m rarely convinced when bombarded with dubious, self-congratulating ads of companies that look like they’ve spent tons of money on marketing materials just to lure your average guy in. A1 Auto Transport is the complete opposite of these companies. My car always arrived promptly on schedule, never with a hint of scratch or dirt or damage, and they keep me updated every step of the process. When you’ve found a company whose genuine care for their customers comes naturally, you stand by them no matter what. It’s the most logical thing to do.”

“A1 Auto Transport helped me move a vehicle to Iowa from Houston. I was a bit nervous, no knowing much about such services. Thanks to Joe, I was able to clear the fog a little. He answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that left no room for interpretation. The details were straightforward. I picked Sunday as the pickup date, since I wasn’t at work, and they accommodated me. The truck arrived an hour early, yet the driver patiently waited for me to arrive. He thoroughly checked my car for scratches or anything that might affect the transport then drove it onto the truck. I was given a 2 day time window during which the car was supposed to arrive in, and it got to Iowa in the evening of the first day. The trip didn’t damage it at all. Next time a friend wants to move, I’ll surely recommend A1 Auto Transport.”
