East Peoria State To State Moving Services

East Peoria Long Distance Moving Companies

The city in Tazewell County is home to many Caterpillar Inc. facilities. East Peoria greatly benefits economically from the Peoria Illinois Metropolitan Statistical Area along Illinois River. It attracts tax payers who keep the city’s development at the upper echelons in Central Illinois. If you want to work, learn, and have fun in the same vicinity, East Peoria might just be the place for you. Peoria Lake and Splashdown Water Park have several boating, fishing and swimming sports that attract thousands each weekend. In downtown East Peoria, there are casinos and theatres that will keep you occupied with the best performing arts, gambling and live jazz and rock music. Peoria Historical Society and Peoria Riverfront Museum hold immense knowledge about wildlife and history of the city. Moving is not much fun, but it can be improved by hiring moving companies. A long distance done by an experienced mover such as A-1 Auto Transport will leave you satisfied. We also do vehicle shipment.

Why a moving company is necessary

  • Specialized and valuable items: Items like pianos and LED screens require professional handling since a simple mistake can be disastrous. A moving company is trained and has handled such items before. They have strong employees who use gripers on the edges of the items to avoid slipping across stairs and irregular floors. Moving companies design a move according to your needs. They have the facilities and experience and hence they only require your item and specifications. They can move pets, glassware, bulky furniture and very heavy items like sculptures.
  • Optimum safety: Moving companies are in a better position to handle your items than your friends. They have professional training to handle any item the customer owns. They use corrugated boxes which are padded with soft linen on the inside. The items are wrapped with bubble wrap and arranged in a systematic position to save space and ensure safety. The employees are well bonded and hence understand each other properly. They move in unison and rarely slip or miss a step. They also have vacuum lifting machines which can lift delicate items which are not easy to handle. Items in the truck are strapped to the ground and hence don’t bump into each other in transit. Heavy items are loaded foremost while light and delicate items go on top. Very valuable items have a different compartment in the carrier. The trucks are monitored at the headquarters to keep the items safe.

How to find the best moving company in East Peoria

Search reliable moving companies from customer review sites like They review and rank movers based on the customer experience, quality of services and equipment.

Verify the company’s IDOT number at FMCSA. Key in the carrier number and view the type of insurance and permits the company possesses. Check the validity of the licenses and scope of coverage.

Moving companies who are members of AMSA and IMAWA have quality services. They educate the public about moving and deal with mover-customer disagreements.

The best moving practices

  • Plan your move. Begin at least three months in advance to factor enough time for a change of mind or unavoidable circumstances.
  • Downsize your move. It is more affordable to sell items of little value than pay the cost of moving them. Very old clothes and furniture should be discarded.
  • Create an inventory of all packed items. Compare it with the mover’s inventory after loading.
  • Separate items to be used for the first night and move them by your means. Begin packing from the room with most items and rarely used items as you proceed to everyday items.
  • Take pictures of all electrical connections and packed items. It helps when re-installing electrical set-ups in your new premises.
  • Place the packed items in a strategic location. Ensure the movers have easy access to all items. Moving companies charge by the hour, so the more time they spend in your premises, the higher the charge.

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!
