We understand how important your move is, that’s why we offer high-quality services at affordable rates. Your move to East Chicago will be less stressful if you let us give you professional help. We also transport vehicles.

Hacks to make your move simple

  • Pack light: Don’t overload your boxes. Pack heavy items like books in small boxes and light items like clothes and beddings in large boxes. Heavy boxes will be difficult to carry around and will tire you out quickly.
  • Keep your documents with you: People lose or forget some items when moving out. To keep your documents safe, pack them in a small box that you can travel with. Keeping the documents close means you can access them anytime you want.
  • Ask for help: If you have a lot of stuff, it’s a good idea to ask your friends to help you pack. Designate specific tasks for each one them so that the work may be carried out efficiently.
  • Purge your items: Items that are necessary anymore should be disposed of. Sort through your items and categorize them according to those you’ll move, sell or donate. Reducing your luggage minimizes your load, subsequently reducing the moving cost.
  • Research moving companies: Find a reputable moving company to handle your move. Be sure to book your moving date as early as possible. Pick a date that falls on a weekday since most people move during the weekends and the rates are normally high.

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 hire a professional moving company?

  • Moving companies are experienced to carry out any type of move. Whether it’s across the street or state, the movers have seen it all. They are skilled in making your move progress without a hitch and will make sure you’re settled without complications.
  • You save money by hiring professional movers. When you move on your own, you have to purchase packing supplies, hire a truck and you may incur extra costs along the way. But with professionals, all the expenses are included in the package. You don’t need to make any extra payments.
  • Minimize the risk of injuries by hiring a professional moving company. They are used to heavy lifting and can safely carry your sofa and other bulky stuff down the stairs or through narrow corridors. They have the necessary equipment to get the job done efficiently.
  • The safety of your items is of paramount importance to moving companies. They are trained to handle them with care and deliver them without a scratch. Plus, they provide adequate insurance for your items so that in case of a misfortune, you’ll be compensated.

How to find a reliable moving company

  • Transparency: Be wary of companies that don’t provide information on their websites. A reputable mover should display its USODT Number which is issued by the FMCSA. Verify if their licenses are valid and up-to-date. If you are moving to another city within the state, your mover should be duly licensed by the Indiana Department of Revenue.
  • Customer service: Only hire movers that perform background checks on their employees. A company with permanent workers is likely to provide good services than a company that uses day laborers. You don’t want to open your doors to criminals and risk the safety of your belongings.
  • Membership: Consider hiring a company that’s a member of the Better Business Bureau. This shows commitment and provision of high-level services to consumers. The BBB provides unbiased information to help customers select a reliable moving company.

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!
