South Elgin State To State Moving Services

South Elgin Long Distance Moving Companies

Did you know that on average a person moves approximately 12 times in their life? Whether you are moving across the country or overseas, there are dozens of decisions to be made. You need to figure out how to move your worldly possessions across thousands of miles safely. Hiring a professional moving company in Illinois will help you relocate with ease. A-1 Auto Transport has been around for close to 30 years, and understands moving. Don’t let your move to South Elgin be a burden. Call us today and we’ll be happy to help. We also relocate vehicles.

The best moving tips

  • Don’t book your moving date on weekends. The rates are generally high, and traffic is terrible. Opt for a weekday instead when fewer people are moving.
  • Pack all the ‘must-have' items such as prescriptions, bedsheets, pajamas, bathroom necessities and toiletries in a bag that can easily be distinguished from the rest. This will save you the headache of rummaging through dozens of boxes on your first night.
  • Use unprinted newsprint to wrap breakables like plates and cups. Newspapers will stain your items and should be avoided. Pack your dishes vertically and stuff soft clothes to fill any spaces left.
  • Reserve a parking spot if you live in a built-up area. This will allow the movers to have easy access to your household items and avoid the risk of penalties for parking on the wrong spot.
  • Clean your fridge thoroughly and dry out any liquids to prevent the growth of mildew. Leave the refrigerator doors open for at least 24 hours before moving to get rid of any nasty smell.

Benefits of hiring a professional moving company

  • Free up your time: Moving is not just transporting your items; contacting the utility company, cleaning your old apartment, and transferring your license are some of the other concerns you need to address. When you hire professional movers, you get enough free time to focus on these tasks.
  • Efficiency: Professional movers pride themselves in getting things done quickly and effectively. They have all the resources to pack, load and unload your items within the shortest time possible. They are highly skilled in handling delicate and bulky items to ensure they are delivered without any damages.
  • Organization: The moving process can be overwhelming and confusing if you go the DIY way. With professional movers, everything is executed according to a properly laid out plan.
  • Insurance cover: Since you’ll be entrusting your belongings to the hands of strangers, you need to be assured that they will be handled with care and delivered to your home. Professional movers are insured thus providing adequate protection for your possessions. In case of a loss, you are sure of reimbursement.

Ways of finding reliable movers

Verify their credentials by visiting the FMCSA website. Long distance movers should have a USDOT Number while in-state movers should have proper licensing from the Illinois Commerce Commission.

Get a few companies to give you their moving quotes so that you can compare the rates. While it might be obvious to hire a cheap company, it’s important to consider the quality of services they offer.

Read moving reviews from reputable sites such as Angie’s List. Customer reviews will give you an idea of how a particular moving company handles its customers. You’ll be able to learn a lot from other people’s experiences.

Check the reputation of a moving company by visiting the Better Business Bureau. If there are any complaints filed against the company, read carefully to find out if they were resolved quickly. The BBB also ranks moving companies based on their performances over the years. Higher ratings mean quality service delivery.

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!
