A higher quality of life, economic health and affordable housing are some of the qualities that make the county seat of Rock Island a favorite destination.

Engage A-1 Auto Transport for a flawless move. We also deal with auto transport.

Reasons to consider hiring professional movers

  • A relaxed state of mind: Moving companies have a sufficient workforce and appropriate equipment. This ensures they can handle multiple tasks simultaneously in a safe manner. While you are dealing with address change and switching utilities, the company can pack, load and arrange the items in your new premises.
  • Accountability: Professional movers are accountable for all items in transit. Once you hire a moving company, be assured your items will arrive as they left. They mark all the items as they are packed and loaded and inspect the condition of each item. The trucks are monitored from the headquarters to ensure the items are secure from theft and damage. All the insured items are reimbursed in case accidents occur. Since a mover knows they are liable for any accident, items are handled with optimum safety. The team finishes loading and ensures nothing has been left behind.
  • Properly stocked: Moving companies have the right equipment. Their vehicles can navigate extreme weather and move for long periods without breaking down. The company has dollies to move stacked boxes from the house to the vehicle. Ramps are used across stairs to slide heavy items with no wheels. The trained employees safely move delicate items such as pool table and pianos. They have vast experience which ensures they can move very heavy items like gun safes and also deal with delicate items like glassware.

Tips for an easy move to Rock Island

  • After hiring a desirable moving company, ensure the company sends a representative for a walk-through. Ask questions such as the experience and number of customers they have handled within your locality.
  • When organizing moving activities, ensure each task has adequate time. You can consult the company to know when to factor procurement and packing. Some moving supplies like dollies and corrugated boxes may be hard to find and it is advisable to source them a month in advance.
  • You can buy, rent or get free moving supplies like corrugated boxes, tapes, dollies, marker pens and ramps at U-Haul and com. They also have useful in-depth information about moving companies and packing tips.
  • Pack 80% of your items before the company arrives. Moving companies charge by the hour, so keep the time spent handling the move at a minimum.
  • Essentials like toiletries, cooking items, and clean clothes should be packed in an overnight bag. They help you adjust to the new premises easily. Play some music and take a warmth bath to recover quickly.

How to select the best mover in Rock Island

  • Experience: Conduct a background search with IMAWA. Review the records of a company since inception. Ask for contacts of three people that the company have handled before.
  • License and insurance: Interstate movers have a USDOT number, while Illinois movers have an IDOT number. Verify the company’s permits with FMSCA. Moving companies should also have a satisfactory safety rating and valid permits to move household items.
  • Reviews: Confirm previous customer experiences with the moving company. Use sites like Yelp or BBB to review customer reviews and ratings.

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!
