East St. Louis State To State Moving Services

East St. Louis Long Distance Moving Companies

When you decide to move, one of the most critical decisions to make is whether to do it on your own or hire a professional moving company. A lot of work needs to be done for a move to be successful and the only proven way to make it easier is by hiring an experienced moving company. If you have planned a move to East St. Louis, A-1 Auto Transport, Illinois, has got you covered. We will help you plan and organize everything from packing to unpacking, so you have a smooth transition to your new home. We also relocate vehicles.

Tips to ease your move

  • Pack room by room to ensure items of the same room are in the same boxes. Jumping from one room to another will only complicate the process. This will make it easier for you when unpacking.
  • Label each box as soon as you finish packing. Make sure you stick the labels on both sides of the boxes so that you can easily identify them when they are stacked. Indicating the rooms each box belongs to will make unloading fast.
  • Give yourself ample time to manage every task before moving day. Create deadlines for yourself and stick to the plan. For instance, you may decide to pack two to three boxes a day. This way you’ll be less stressed when the day finally approaches.
  • Ask friends and family to help you pack your belongings. Packing is time-consuming, and even a little help will go a long way in reducing your workload. Invite them especially on the weekend and make them a nice meal as a show of appreciation.
  • Store your valuables in a secure place. You don’t want to lose your passport or birth certificate during the move considering how hard it is to replace them.

Why hire a professional moving company?

  • Safety: Carrying furniture down the stairs is no easy task. Professional movers use the appropriate equipment to safely lift and move your heavy items when loading and unloading. You don’t have to do any heavy lifting, and you can be confident that your items will arrive in one piece.
  • Storage: In case you need to store your items and pick them at a later date, professional movers have climate controlled warehouses that ensures your items are safe the entire duration. With their flexible payment options, you are guaranteed of the security of your items.
  • Packing services: When you hire professional movers, they come with the necessary packing materials and special boxes designed to keep your belongings safe. They pack fast and efficiently saving time and space. They’ll also load and unload your items giving you peace of mind.

Ways of finding a reputable mover

The longevity of a moving company determines the level of service delivery. A company with years of experience is likely to provide high standard services compared to an upcoming one. Make sure you know how long your moving company has been in business before hiring them.

For your safety and that of your items, only hire a company that’s fully insured. Movers offer different insurance options aimed at protecting your belongings from damage or loss. Check the insurance status of your company with the Licensing and Insurance Public.

Check out the website of the moving company you are interested in to see if they have won any awards for excellent services. Also, read the reviews from other people who have commented on the website to find out how they were served. Angie’s List is a trusted and resourceful site where subscribers share their moving experiences.

A reputable mover only gives estimates after sending in their inspectors to assess your household items. This way, you’ll be able to budget your move more efficiently since the quotes will be accurate. Avoid movers who give estimates over the phone.

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!
