Canton State To State Moving Services

Canton Long Distance Moving Companies

Whether your move is triggered by a new job posting or the need to join your spouse, you have to contend with the logistics involved such as packing and loading your household items. At A-1 Auto Transport, we believe everybody deserves to enjoy their move. We are based in Illinois and promise to help reduce the stress of moving by providing a wide range of unique services including vehicle transport. If you have a move to Canton looming in the horizon, don’t fret, we are here for you.

5 tips to ease your move

  • Pack a survival kit. When you get to your new house, you’ll be too tired to start unpacking right away. Pack a few essential items in a bag or two so that you can unpack at your own pace; a change of clothes, bedsheets, a few utensils, and toiletries.
  • Get sturdy boxes. Before you start packing, make sure you have plenty of boxes of different sizes. You can visit your local stores or order them from a moving company in your locality. You also need other packing supplies like sealing tape, markers and bubble wrap.
  • Visit your new house. You may consider hiring cleaning specialists to have your home thoroughly cleaned before you move in. Also, check if any renovations are due especially the walls and floors.
  • Contact your utility providers to have water, electricity, and internet up and running by the time you move into your new house. Remember to have your utilities disconnected at your current house a day before moving out.
  • Purge your items. Get rid of household items you haven’t used for a while. Check your closets and dispose of or donate clothes that you don’t need.

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.

4 reasons you should hire a professional moving company

  • Inventory: Listing down your items can be a hectic job. But with a professional moving company, nothing is left to chance. They have experts who will do an inventory of your belongings, with detailed information of their condition. The list will help account for any missing or misplaced items.
  • Insurance: When you hire professional movers, your items get insured. They are responsible for your belongings and are obligated to replace any items damaged or lost while in their care.
  • Safety: The staff of a professional moving company is well trained to handle your household items including delicate ones like the piano. They are used to carrying heavy furniture and fridges, and you have nothing to worry about. They use their skills and workforce to reduce chances of injuries.
  • Reliability: You can be guaranteed that professional movers will honor the contract you signed and deliver on their promise. Unlike friends who can bail out on you last minute, movers have a reputation to build hence they must show up on time.

Ways of finding a reliable moving company

Ask your friends to recommend a few companies they have used in the past. Since they are people you trust, you’ll get an idea of which company to hire. However, you need to have other options since you might not feel the same way as your friends about a particular mover.

When reading a company’s reviews, don’t just look at their ratings but also the number of reviews. Only go for a mover that has a majority of positive reviews. Sites such as Yelp and HomeAdvisor are a great source of information and give details about moving companies.

Make sure your moving company has all the credentials required by the federal government. Interstate movers should have a USDOT Number while in-state movers must be licensed by the Illinois Commerce Commission.

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!
