Streator Long Distance Moving Companies

With moving, there’s a lot to look forward to; meeting new people, exploring the new city, and making your own decisions. But before you move, some things need to be done such as packing and planning how to transport your belongings. Your best option is to hire a professional moving company like A-1 Auto Transport. We are based in Illinois and understand everything that entails moving. We offer a variety of unique moving services including vehicle transport. Let us help you relocate to Streator in style.

Top 5 moving tips

  • Use up all your food and clean the refrigerator before moving out. Packing food is tricky and may mess up other items in case it spills.
  • If you have young kids, it’s a good idea to find a friend or babysitter to take care of them on moving day so that you can focus on the tasks at hand.
  • Check the new place before you move in. Make sure that everything is in good working condition including water and electricity. Check if the walls need painting or if there’s anything that needs fixing. This way, you will be sure you’re moving into a house that’s ready for settling in.
  • Find a good mover that will help you plan and organize the move. Make early reservations since most moving companies run on a tight schedule and booking late may lead to inconveniences.
  • List down all your household items to make it easy to account for anything that's missing. If your mover inventories your belongings, compare the two lists to make sure that everything is listed.

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

  • Professional movers keep their word and will show up as agreed. Since they have a reputation to build, they can’t risk failing to honor the agreement. Your friends, on the other hand, have other responsibilities to attend to and you cannot be sure if they’ll turn up.
  • To quickly move heavy and bulky items like furniture, you need to have the right tools. Since you can’t hire all the required equipment, it’s wise to hire professional movers. They are well equipped and trained to use the equipment to ensure your items are loaded and unloaded safely. They also use special materials to protect your belongings from dents or scratches.
  • Peace of mind. Moving involves a lot of activities that are tedious, and it’s impossible to move by yourself. By hiring a professional moving company, you’ll be relieved of all the stress of relocating thus getting the time to focus on other issues such as setting up your utilities and looking for new schools for your kids.

How to find a good moving company

Compare the moving estimates of at least three moving companies before picking the most affordable one. However, beware of companies charging very low prices as this may indicate lack of experience or the company not being legitimate.

Visit the FMCSA database to determine if the moving company you consider hiring is compliant with the federal regulations. If you’re moving out of state, your mover should have a valid USDOT Number. If it’s a local move, your mover should obtain a license from the Illinois Commerce Commission.

Consider movers who are insured. You want to be sure that your household items will be delivered to your destination in one piece and in case of an accident, you’ll be compensated. The law requires all movers to be insured and you can verify their details with the Licensing and Insurance Public.

Go for a mover certified by IMAWA. The association safeguards the interests of consumers by ensuring its members are properly evaluated and follow the best professional business practices. Visit their database and select a mover that meets your requirements.

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!
