Kewanee State To State Moving Services

Kewanee Long Distance Moving Companies

While most people are excited when it comes to moving, they need to have a well-executed plan for the move to run smoothly. With the help of A-1 Auto Transport, your belongings will be handled professionally throughout the moving process. We are based in Illinois, offering exceptional services to people moving in or out of Kewanee. We also help with vehicle relocations.

Tips for a stress-free move

  • Set a budget limit to help you avoid unnecessary spending. Moving involves many costs and to reduce that stress; plan your finances accordingly. When looking for movers, look for one that falls within your price range.
  • Only move with the items that you need. Do not pack items you haven’t used in more than six months. This not only wastes space but also increases the cost of moving.
  • Pack from one room to another starting with the ones that are less frequently used. This helps you pack similar items and avoid confusion when unpacking.
  • Label all your boxes with detailed information of the contents. Use a color coding system where a color represents a specific room. Mark the boxes with the corresponding colors to make it easy for your movers when unloading.
  • Remember to pack a few bags with essential items that you’ll require for the first two days at your new home. Imagine the stress of foraging through the boxes looking for a toothbrush. Place the bags where they can be easily accessible.
  • Make arrangements to have your utilities disconnected at your old house a day before moving out. Notify your utility company of the planned move and have them reconnect the utilities at your new house.

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

  • Insurance: It's mandatory for moving companies to provide adequate insurance cover for your household items. The law requires the movers to provide basic coverage of $0.60 per pound per item. This will cushion you from incurring losses in case of an accident.
  • Safety: Professional movers are skilled in handling heavy, bulky and fragile items to ensure they are delivered to your doorstep without a scratch. They have the physical strength and knowledge to maneuver your sofa through narrow corridors and safely load them into the trucks.
  • Less stress: The process of moving is physically and emotionally draining. But, when you hire a professional mover, you can sit back and relax as they handle everything from carefully packing your stuff to loading and unloading them.
  • Experience: Professional movers have been relocating thousands of people for many years, and they have experienced it all. They thoroughly research your locality to understand the best and safest routes to use. They know the tricks of moving and have the resources to expedite your moving process.

Tips for finding a trustworthy moving company

Moving can be unpredictable and factors such as adverse weather conditions may cause delays. Reliable movers have secure storage facilities to provide temporary shelter for your household items until your move resumes.

Check the track record of the moving company you intend to hire with the Better Business Bureau. Consumers leave comments based on their experience with moving companies. A company that’s trustworthy will have numerous positive reviews and a good rating.

Find out if your mover is a member of the Illinois Movers’ and Warehousemen’s Association. The association only certifies moving companies that abide by specific rules and uphold the delivery of quality services.

To avoid being scammed, only hire a moving company that has been duly licensed by the FMCSA. If you’re moving out of state, check if the company has a valid USDOT Number. The agency is also a good source of finding the history of moving companies. Check out the complaints section to see if your mover has been listed.

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!
