The best moving tips

  • Purge your items. Don’t move with items you have not used for years; it’s a waste of space and money. This way, you’ll be moving into your new house with only the necessary items.
  • Make sure your utilities are set up before moving. Electricity, internet and hot water need to be connected beforehand so that you don’t end up showering with cold water.
  • Book early to guarantee your spot with a professional moving company. 4-6 weeks will suffice so that you can pick a date that’s convenient for you.
  • The federal law bans moving companies from moving items that pose a risk to the public safety. Hazardous materials such as propane, ammunition, gasoline, and acids to mention just a few are among the items movers won't relocate. Ask your mover what they don’t move so that you can make other arrangements.
  • Update your address ahead of time so that your bills, packages and credit card statements can be forwarded to your new address. Remember to notify business contacts and your friends of the change.

Why you need a professional moving company

  • Affordability: Most people think hiring a moving company is expensive. But if you consider the hassle of separately hiring a truck, the equipment, and people to help you load and unload, you’ll realize that you’re better off hiring a mover. They’ll send their experts to inspect your home so that they can give you accurate moving estimates. Everything is calculated including the distance to make sure there are no surprises along the way.
  • Experience: When it comes to moving, don't leave anything to chance. Professional movers have been doing this for a long time and know all the tricks to make your move as simple as possible. They are skilled and have the resources to move your items safely and deliver them on time.
  • Protection for your items: Professional movers offer insurance cover to cushion you from losses. Accidents are unpredictable and knowing that your items are protected will give you peace of mind.

How to find a reliable moving company

A major fact to consider before hiring a moving company is licensing. Intrastate movers are required to obtain permits from the Illinois Commerce Commission. If you’re moving out of state, confirm if the company is licensed by the FMCSA and has a valid USDOT number.

Check the reputation of the company with the Better Business Bureau. The BBB only endorses companies that consistently provide high quality moving services and quickly responds to consumer claims. You can also find out what other people are saying about your moving company by reading their reviews.

The recommendations from co-workers, relatives, and friends can be valuable. By sharing their moving experience, you can determine which company to hire. Since these are people you trust, they'll provide genuine opinions and the information will save you time you’d have spent researching several movers.

Find out if your moving company has any membership with reputable trade associations like the Illinois Mover’s and Warehousemen’s Association. Only members that adhere to their Code of Ethics are certified. Consumers are protected from being scammed since to be a member, a company has to be thoroughly screened.

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!
