Melrose Park State To State Moving Services

Melrose Park Long Distance Moving Companies

The rate at which Melrose Park is developing has attracted many companies to establish their businesses here. First time home buyers find it ideal due to its affordable houses and the beautiful scenery. Before making a move, one needs to consider whether to hire a mover or move on their own. It has been proven, that it's better hiring a professional moving company. A-1 Auto Transport is just one call away; you can visit our Illinois office and get free moving advice from our experts. We offer a wide range of moving services including vehicle transport.

Top moving tips

  • As soon as you decide to move, start making early preparations. Clean your closets, electrical appliances, and the attic. Having less work to do on moving day will make your move less stressful.
  • To continue receiving your mail and important bills, fill out a ‘change of address’ form at the local post office or online through the com portal.
  • Make early reservations with a moving company. Six to eight weeks will suffice if you want to secure a date that’s convenient for you to move. Consider picking a moving date that falls on a weekday since most people are inclined to move during the weekends.
  • Make arrangements to have your internet, phone and utilities disconnected a few days before you move. Let them know you are moving so that they can reconnect the services in your new house.
  • All your cleaning supplies should be packed last after you have finished cleaning all your items and the rooms. You’ll also need the cleaning supplies when you arrive 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 a professional moving company

  • Experience: Most professional moving companies have been in the business for many years and have well-structured systems to make your relocation seamless. They are thorough and don’t compromise on the quality of services they deliver. Movers always have a backup plan in case of any mechanical problems with their trucks while in transit.
  • Convenience: Since you’ve paid for the services, you expect your items to be delivered to your doorstep safe and in good condition. A-1 Auto Transport gets the job done and makes sure you are settled quickly. You can relax and think about other issues while we do the hard work for you.
  • Services you can depend on: When seeking professional help, you want to reduce the stress that comes with moving. Ordinarily, when you hire a moving company, you sign a contract that the movers are bound to honor. You can be sure they will show up as agreed and deliver the services you signed for.

Tips on finding a reliable moving company

  • People who have moved in the past find it difficult to forget their experience whether it was good or bad. They are always happy to share on sites like HomeAdvisor or Angie’s List. Search for your moving company and find out what people are saying before making a decision.
  • Inspection. A reliable mover performs an on-site evaluation of your household items before coming up with an estimate that's precise. Avoid a company that gives quotes over the phone without sending their experts to you.
  • Certification. The Illinois Movers’ and Warehousemen’s Association helps protect consumers from scammers by connecting them to movers who have undergone a strict background check. You can trust a certified member of IMAWA to provide high level services.
  • A good mover should provide you with the Know Your Rights booklet. This is a guide that helps you know what to expect from your moving company before a move. This is also a requirement by the federal government.

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!
