Cicero Long Distance Moving Companies
Cicero was once six times its size in the 20th century. It was named after Marcus Tullius Cicero, the Roman statesman, and orator. The town has grown massively to accommodate the 85,000 residents. Retail shops and apartments have sprung up across the district capital and downtown Cicero. With new community policing, the town’s real estate is gaining its lost glory. The diverse races of Illinois ensure the restaurants, theatres and malls have a variety of options. People move due to proximity to major towns, business in downtown Cicero or to learn the history of Illinois. Moving is known to rejuvenate the soul and body; it can improve your performance and reduce stress significantly. A-1 Auto Transport is the most reliable mover in the city. We will also move your vehicle for you!
Why hire a moving company?
- Professionalism: Professional movers will plan and inform the client of their moving day activities. They work under a signed agreement to deliver satisfactory services to the customer. They update customers of any new developments and advice on how to deal with different situations.
- Reliability: Professional movers work within a timeline. Relying on friends during a self-move is risky; they arrive and leave at their discretion. On the moving day, they may be tied up with other duties and may not show up at all. This is very inefficient and results in an unsuccessful move.
- Accountability: A professional mover is responsible for the items being moved. They have an inventory of all items in the truck. They inspect the load to avoid ferrying illegal and flammable items. They also ensure the security of items when loading and unloading. They insure the load against accidents.
- Safety: Routine handling of moving items has resulted in movers safely delivering items. Professional movers know the risky areas when handling items; hence they evade them or apply extra caution. All items are neatly packed while the fragile ones have extra cushioning.

How to find the best mover in Cicero
Establish whether the moving company has been licensed to operate. If you want to move between states, check if the moving company has a USDOT carrier number. Movers operating within the state have an IDOT number.
The moving company should be insured. Check with FMSCA on the company’s insurance number. The type of insurance depends on the value of items and the requirements of different states.
Verify the experience of a moving company. Having a good track record shows their ability to deliver. You can use BBB to do background searches. They have a message board that warns customers against dealing with blacklisted companies.
The best tips when moving to Cicero
Hire an upright mover to handle your move. Contact them months ahead and schedule a convenient day.
Ask all questions on moving when the company sends a representative for a walk-through. Also, remember to ask for free packing tips.
Account for the kids and pets by sending them to friends or relatives. Inform the neighbors of your move and book a proper parking spot for the company truck.
Get rid of items you no longer use. Donate them to local charities or organize a yard sale.
Fold all clothes to maximize on the limited space. You can employ the services of a packing manager in case you lack the time or skills required.
Always be around when movers are loading items. Compare both inventories after all items are loaded. Check the high shelves and drawers to confirm no item has been forgotten.
Provide some refreshments to the team and tip them at 10% the day’s charge.
Sign the contract after all the work has been done according to the agreement.
