At A-1 Auto Transport, Illinois, we are always ready for a move no matter the season. Our experts are available 24/7 including the holidays to make sure your move progresses without a hitch. Our services are unique and tailored to suit an individual’s needs. Don’t be alone when moving to Lombard, let us help you relocate with ease. We also transport vehicles.

The best moving tips

  • Purge your items: Get rid of items that are no longer in use. Fewer items mean a lighter load hence reduced cost of moving. You can either hold a garage sale or donate to charity foundations.
  • Utilities: Make arrangements to have your utilities turned over to your new residence about three weeks before moving. Having internet and cable TV installed early is a good idea as opposed to waiting for weeks for the reconnection. Make sure your utilities are turned off at your old house on moving day.
  • Essentials: Pack all the items you’ll need on your first night at the new house in a clear plastic bag that can easily be identified. You’ll probably be too exhausted to touch anything and there’s nothing worse than trying to find a toothbrush in a pile of boxes.
  • Electronics: Take a photo of how the cords are connected to your electronic devices so that you can easily reconnect them when you get to your new house. If there are any screws and bolts, find a small plastic bag to put them in and carry the bag yourself.
  • Cleaning: It’s a great idea to clean your household items as you pack them. Wipe off any dust from your furniture so that you just arrange it at your new house. Trying to clean while unpacking will be stressful since you have a lot to do and with boxes all over, movement will be limited.

Why you should hire professional movers

  • Financial control. A professional moving company will provide you with a free moving estimate based on the weight of your items and the distance to be covered. This helps you to plan your budget and avoid overspending. You can expect to pay a fixed charge without any hidden charges.
  • Protection for your items. The crew of a professional moving company is expertly trained with techniques to ensure your items are properly packed, transported and unloaded. They use the right padding and wrapping materials to keep your belongings from shifting while in transit. Your items will be handled professionally and safely delivered to your doorstep without delay.
  • A moving company will be held responsible for any damage that occurs during the moving process. A professional moving company provides adequate insurance coverage for your items and will compensate you in case of an accident.

Ways of finding a reputable moving company

Avoid a mover that gives you an upfront quote without looking at your household items. A reputable mover will send in their inspectors to assess your belongings and determine the distance of your move before giving you an estimate.

To be sure you’re dealing with a legitimate moving company, visit the FMCSA website to confirm their credentials. A reliable mover should be duly registered and licensed. If it’s a long distance move, they must have a valid USDOT Number that acts as a permit to cross the state borders.

To protect yourself from falling into the hands of fraudsters, consider hiring a certified member of the American Moving and Storage Association. The association subjects its members through annual background checks to ensure they don’t participate in any criminal activities and that they observe all the public safety regulations.

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!
