Oak Forest State To State Moving Services

Oak Forest Long Distance Moving Companies

Oak Forest is a suburban city located in Bremen Township in Cook County. It's approximately 24 miles from downtown Chicago. There are plenty of local businesses which provide essential commodities and services to the community. Major streets and highways are close by, making the area highly accessible. The city has many parks and recreational facilities for all ages. The government provides affordable condos and other housing options. Oak Forest is an ideal home for families. Moving however, can be stressful for many people. Experienced Illinois movers can assist in planning, packing, dispatching, and unpacking to make your relocation more relaxed.

We also offer vehicle transport services.

Tips for a Smooth Relocation

Moving is one of the most labor-intensive household projects. It can be overwhelming unless you take measures such as the following to keep it under control.

  • Plan early: Unless your reason for moving is abrupt, you will have at least a month's notice to get prepared. Outline the tasks you have to carry out in a checklist to ensure that you finish all chores in time. Pack in bits from day to day to avoid getting fatigued.
  • De-Clutter your house: Since you will have to peruse everything that you own, it will be an opportune time to toss the things you no longer need. Hold a yard sale or drop your slightly used clothes and furniture at thrift stores.
  • Figure out a dispatch strategy: Depending on consignment size and the distance to your destination, you can employ two options. A group of friends and a rented truck may be sufficient for shifting across the street. However, it's prudent to hire a moving company for a long-distance relocation or if you have a substantial amount of things.
  • Supplies: You will need plenty of boxes and other materials to accommodate everything. Find out if your movers can supply them or visit a local store. Most of the moving boxes should be small to medium-sized since they are easier to handle especially along corridors and stairs.
  • Essentials: Select the essentials which you will need immediately after arriving and pack them together. The items might include toilet paper, trash bags, cleaning agents, light bulbs, changing clothes, etc.

Benefits of Hiring a Moving Company

Professional movers usually achieve higher safety standards in relocations than people moving by themselves. Specialized movers are qualified for the job; hence there is limited breakage of items and personal injuries.

Moving companies provide a direct estimate. You don't need to know the cost of the necessary materials or to approximate their quantities. You can plan for funding better since there won't be unexpected costs.

If you are looking for reliable service, hire a professional moving company. The firm works by contract. Therefore, you know which services to expect and at what time and price. Relying on friends raises uncertainty since you aren't sure if they will even show up when needed.

There are no accountability issues when you outsource a moving company. The movers keep an inventory of your items allowing you to confirm the state of the consignment at the destination. They provide compensation for loss or damage to items.

Finding a Reliable Moving Company

There are many aspects to look out for during your search for a mover, but the following are the most important.

  • Licensing: Your moving company should feature in the Department of Transportation Records and have a valid USDOT number.
  • Experience: Ensure that the movers you are outsourcing have been in service for an extended period. New moving companies may not meet acceptable standards of service.
  • Insurance: Your movers should have a means of recovering broken things. Their coverage should be at least $0.60 per pound.

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!
