Dolton State To State Moving Services

Dolton Long Distance Moving Companies

Planning a move to Dolton? A-1 Auto Transport, Illinois, is ready to give you the moving experience of a lifetime. We listen to you and design moving services that meet your preferences. We also relocate vehicles.

Tips to help you move with ease

  • If you have not used an item for more than six months, chances are that you don’t need it. Sell it or give it away to charity.
  • Prep your new home before moving in. Check if the walls need painting, or if the house needs cleaning. Avoid the stress of moving into a house that needs fixing up by carrying out thorough inspection and ensuring everything is working properly.
  • Make sure you have enough boxes before you start packing. Get boxes of different sizes with firm edges to keep your items intact. Note that smaller boxes are easy to carry and can fit through narrow hallways.
  • Use up all your food before moving. Transporting food is difficult and can get messy. Movers only move canned food and non-perishable. Clean your fridge and freezer and let them dry out completely at least 24 hours before moving day.
  • Find a babysitter to take care of your kids while you concentrate on the moving process. Juggling different tasks simultaneously can be complicated and having your kids around will only worsen the situation.

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 a professional moving company

  • Affordability: Moving can easily get out of control especially if it's long distance. Unexpected things may happen during a move leading to more spending than you had anticipated. With professional movers, all the expenses are captured in one place. They charge based on distance to be covered or the weight of your items. Once you agree on payment, you’ll not be required to spend anything extra.
  • Urgency: If you are in a rush to move, it's wise to hire professional movers. They are trained to work fast and efficiently. They will pack your belongings, load and have you moved within a week. If you have 30 days to vacate your property, you don’t have to worry. Let professionals handle your move.
  • Trucks: It’s difficult to tell the size of truck suitable for your items when moving on your own. Professional movers will assess your items and come with a truck that can have your items moved in one trip. They train their drivers to observe all the safety regulations of different states and you are guaranteed your items will get to the destination safely.

How to find a reliable moving company

Check if your potential mover is listed with the Better Business Bureau. BBB Accredited companies provide excellent services and respond to consumer complaints promptly. You can also read the comments of consumers who have moved in the past. Avoid companies with many negative reviews.

Get recommendations from coworkers, friends, and real estate agents. List down multiple movers and get all the valuable information that will help you make an informed decision. If a moving company is in your area, pay an impromptu visit to their offices and check out their equipment and staff. Pay particular attention to how they treat clients and if they are knowledgeable.

Look for companies that are affiliated with associations such as the Illinois Movers’ and Warehousemen’s Association. Members undergo a strict annual evaluation to ensure they follow the set Code of Ethics. Hiring a certified member helps protect you from fraudsters.

Only hire movers who have fully complied with the U.S. Department of Transportation regulations. Moving companies must be authorized and licensed to be allowed to operate in the moving business. Check if the company has a valid USDOT Number and that it's clearly displayed in any form of advertising.

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!
