Channahon Long Distance Moving Companies
Channahon which means ‘meeting of the waters,’ gets its name from the confluence of Des Plaines, Kankakee River and Michigan canal. They form the Illinois River which runs through most of the village. The Channahon State Park has the best sight of the entire spectacle. It hosts two festivals a year to mark this unique feature. The village’s community and central parks have most of Channahon’s recreational facilities. They spot skating, biking, golf clubs, dance classes and fitness centers. The proximity to two interstates led to a soybean oil production, Mobil oil refinery and petrochemical plants which boosted the industrial growth immensely. Most of the population in Channahon is actually from eastern Kentucky. Moving to Channahon? Move with A-1 Auto Transport, the most experienced mover. We also relocate vehicles.
Reasons why you need a moving company
- A swift process: A long distance move done by a professional moving company is flawless and swift. The success of a move depends on the planning and resources a company has. Experienced moving companies know the terrain and have a clear process in mind. They work much faster and are unlikely to be hampered by delays. Advanced equipment and training comes in handy when dealing with difficult situations and time-consuming tasks. Winches and forklifts save the time that could have been used to move a pool table across stairs, several storeys high.
- Keep your friends happy: Moving is tedious and your friends who have their own activities don’t want to be associated with a tiresome and time-consuming process. The heavy lifts and numerous trips are not exciting. They might look for flimsy reasons to excuse themselves and when they do, few return. They are inexperienced and hence may cause several accidents along the day. If your friend breaks a valuable item, they cannot repay since they offered to help. This will most likely affect your friendship.

6 of the best moving tips
- After confirming the movers’ capabilities, set a convenient moving date and establish the company will perform a walk-through a month ahead.
- Visit the new premises in advance. Clean the place and perform any necessary renovations. Get to know the neighbors and visit the surrounding areas. It helps you settle much faster.
- Purge items no longer required. Donate to Goodwill or organize a yard sale. Some outdated garage stuff, kitchen items and clothing only add to the moving weight and cost.
- Procure moving supplies beforehand. You can also rent the equipment at subsidized cost at U-Haul and get free boxes at com.
- Smartly pack your belongings. Begin with the heaviest items and those rarely used. Have a central location for packing. It saves the time used to locate and move items. Ensure you have dismantled all necessary items before the company arrives. Place the packed item close to exits to reduce the loading time.
- Pack a first night bag with your essentials for easy settling. Unpacking and arranging are also difficult and time-consuming.
