Des Plaines Long Distance Moving Companies

When it comes to safe relocation, the option of hiring a moving company should always be on the table. You’ve probably bought the house of your dreams and need to pack and move your belongings to Des Plaines. When you hire A-1 Auto Transport, we will send in our team of professionals who will guide your move. We are an experienced moving company based in Illinois, with exceptional services to make your move seamless. We also relocate vehicles.

Tips to ease your move

  • Get organized early: Plan ahead. Unless it's urgent, you probably have more than 6 weeks to organize everything that’s necessary before moving day. Arrange for your kid’s school transfer and get all the medical records you need.
  • Sort your items: If you have stuff in your house that you haven’t used for over six months, you definitely don’t need it. Give it to charities near you or hold a garage sale.
  • Pack early: Get enough packing supplies before you start packing. These include boxes, tapes, bubble wrap, and markers. Pack from one room to another starting with the items you use less frequently. Make sure the boxes are correctly labeled to make it easy when unloading.
  • Pack valuable separately: Find a safe box to pack all your jewelry and important documents such as passports and birth certificates. Make sure you personally transport your valuables to your new home.
  • Change of address: Visit the local post office and fill out Change of Address form. This ensures that you continue receiving important mail after moving out. Alert your bank and business contacts of the move and give them your new address.

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.

Why you need to hire a professional moving company

  • Convenience and safety. When you hire a professional mover, you get to decide a time that’s more convenient for you to move. They also provide moving services that will accommodate your budget so that you don’t go broke after your move! The movers are trained to handle your items professionally and deliver them without breakages.
  • The use of the right equipment is crucial in ensuring the safety of your items. Professional movers are well equipped with tools to dismantle your furniture and reassemble them back at your new house. They can lift your heavy and bulky items easily hence making your move fast.
  • When you hire experienced movers, you can rest assured that you’ll be settled within no time. Your belongings will be handled professionally and delivered promptly. Professional movers have a tracking system to ensure the security of your items during the move.
  • Moving is our mainstay, and you can be certain that we will show up on the day of moving to help you pack and move your items to your new home. A-1 Auto Transport will get the job done with minimal stress.

How to find a reputable mover

  • Insurance cover: Do not hire a company that is not clear in its insurance policy. You want your items moved by a company that provides adequate insurance for your belongings. This will give you peace of mind since you’re sure of compensation in case of any damages or loss. Check if the company has complied with the Licensing and Insurance Public.
  • Evaluate movers: It takes proper research to get a good moving company. Start by asking your friends or co-workers to recommend moving companies they have used and had a good experience. You can also check online for movers near you and visit their offices to get more details about their operations. Investigate multiple movers before making a decision.
  • Licensing: Always look for legitimate moving companies. The FMCSA provides the history of moving companies and is responsible for registering and licensing them. Interstate movers must be issued with a USDOT Number while intrastate movers must have proper licensing from 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!
