Summit Long Distance Moving Companies

The Village of Summit gives you an opportunity to explore the world and meet people of diverse backgrounds. Make your move easy and hire A-1 Auto Transport, the best moving company in Illinois. We help with everything including packing, loading, unpacking, and vehicle transportation. Our system is flexible to accommodate everyone whether they have a small or big move. Not forgetting our pocket-friendly prices.

Moving tips

  • Look for free moving boxes. Moving includes a lot of unexpected costs, some of which can be avoided. Save the money you’d have spent buying moving boxes by acquiring them from the liquor store or Craigslist free section.
  • Use towels and sheets. Linens can take up a lot of space in the boxes which could be used for other items. Wrap your plates in between towels and use sheets for other fragile stuff.
  • Document all your items. When unpacking use this record to ensure all your belongings are accounted for.
  • Hire a moving company. They will help with all moving needs and make your move easier. They have their own packing materials which are strong and brand new.
  • Clean the new house. Have the walls repainted and utility cables installed at your new place. You can call a pest specialist to disinfect the house so that you can move into a pest-free house.

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 hire a professional moving company

  • Accountability. When moving on your own, you are responsible for ensuring all your belongings arrive at your new home safely. Hiring a mover that’s adequately insured makes them accountable for all your items.
  • Reliability. Depending on friends and family members to help you can be tricky. They might be nowhere to be found on moving day, leaving you stranded and helpless. But with a professional moving company, they will show up on time and ready with required equipment to help you move.
  • Efficiency. The staff of a professional mover is efficient and well trained to lift heavy furniture down the stairs and into the trucks. They take less time to do all the tasks involved in moving helping you settle in the shortest time possible.
  • Right equipment. Forget about breaking your back while carrying heavy furniture. A professional moving company has the equipment to lift and safely load all your furniture and other fragile items. They will dismantle your furniture and reassemble it at your new home without breaking a sweat.

Finding a reputable moving company

  • Registered company. The FMCSA is responsible for registering and licensing moving companies. Long distance movers should have a valid USDOT Number while intrastate movers must be duly licensed by the Illinois Commerce Commission. Moving with a licensed mover ensures your belongings arrive at your new house safely.
  • Hire a company that does assessment. When the expert arrives at your home, show him all the rooms and furniture you own.  You will be given an estimate after the assessment as opposed to a random quote online or through the phone. Thus, you are confident that the final cost will be influenced by the actual size of your load and the distance to be covered.
  • Consider a member of the American Moving and Storage Association. The association was started to protect consumers against exploitation by moving companies. They have set specific rules to be followed by all of their members. Consider hiring a company that has been certified by AMSA since you can trust them with your belongings and their services are of high quality.
  • Experience. It’s advisable to hire a company that has been in the moving business for an extended period. They have what it takes to ensure your items are delivered safely and on time. Their drivers are familiar with most of the routes and know how to maneuver the trucks through any road.

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!
