We also offer vehicle transport services.

The best moving tips

  • Downsize your items by only packing what you need. Most of the stuff in our houses is of no value yet we tend to hold on to it. Be ruthless when deciding what to move and what to donate or sell. This way, you’ll reduce your load and pay less.
  • Make sure you have plenty of boxes of different sizes before you start packing. Use the small boxes to pack heavy items and the large boxes to pack light items. Keep the maximum load below 50 pounds so that you can easily carry the boxes.
  • If you have jewelry and other valuable items, pack them separately and find a safe place to keep them throughout the journey. Most of these items are expensive and irreplaceable hence the need for special care and attention.
  • When packing plates, use soft clothes to wrap them before packing them vertically in the boxes. You may place plastic plates in-between your dishes to protect them from breaking. Fill any spaces left using unprinted newsprint or towels.
  • Ask your moving company to provide you with a list of items they won’t move. Movers are prohibited from transporting hazardous and flammable materials due to public safety.

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 reputable moving company

  • Save money. Most people undervalue the moving cost especially when moving on their own. Due to lack of experience, they fail to factor in some important factors such as insurance for the hired trucks. They end up spending more than they had intended to. But with a professional moving company, all the expenses are captured as one and you only pay a fixed amount.
  • Accountability. When you hire a professional mover, they become responsible for the safety of your belongings. The movers are required by law to provide the standard insurance cover of 60 cents per pound per item. In case your items get damaged or lost during the process, you’ll be eligible for compensation.
  • Storage units. If you want your items moved before you, or you moved into a small apartment awaiting the completion of your house, you’ll need a place to keep your items. A professional moving company has secure, climate-controlled storage facilities to store your items until you are ready to collect them.

Ways to find a reliable moving company

  • Check the number of complaints that have been filed against the moving company you intend to hire. Through the FMCSA website, you can find the company history which can help you determine whether or not to hire a particular mover. A reliable mover always strives to resolve any matters that arise during a move.
  • Interstate movers should have a valid USDOT Number while in-state movers should be licensed by the Illinois Commerce Commission.
  • A reliable mover should send their inspectors for an in-house survey before giving you an estimate. Companies that provide quotes over the phone cannot be trusted since their estimates will be faulty.
  • Visit the Illinois Movers’ and Warehousemen’s Association to check if your moving company is listed. The association makes sure that’s its members are properly screened before being certified.

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!
