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.

Satisfied Customers

“I am meticulous when it comes to everything. At first, I was thinking of just driving all the way to Illinois from New Jersey. A friend recommended me to go to A1 Auto Transport and told me a lot of good things about them. I refused initially because I had filed a 4 day leave just to drive and visit my mother. But things did not go well. My boss asked me to cancel my leave because a very important client asked for an urgent meeting, and the manager could not attend to it. I was hopeless and took the risk of asking help from A1. The notice was short and I forgot I needed to inform them in advance. After a couple of hours, I received a call and they told me they found a way to book me with no extra fees. I am so thankful I got to attend to my work matters. I did not get to see my mother, but the vehicle and items inside it were in perfect condition as if it was me who took care of it. I owe you guys big time! I got one huge deal from our client.”

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression he’d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“I’m so glad I met you Joe!! A truly fortunate experience. Having to transport a car to Minnesota, I was stunned to see the company, who was supposed to take care of it, just vanish. I couldn’t reach them anymore, like they went bankrupt overnight. However, I was lucky enough to not pay anything, so I simply researched some more until I found A1 Auto Transport. Joe answered my call the first time and we soon agreed on a date and a quote. Unfortunately, I got caught up in work and forgot about it. The order was not confirmed, so Joe must’ve thought I changed my mind. I called him the next day and arranged for a new date. This time, I made a note on my phone and it went well. I replied to his email this time, and the driver arrived at a parking lot down the street on time, as promised. The driver was nice enough to not mention my previous mistake. He delivered my car in just 3 days. Upon careful inspection, there were no scratches or damage done to it during transport. Joe was there along with the driver and they both waited patiently until I was satisfied. Thanks!”

“A1 Auto is kind of like your favourite mom and pop pizza parlour, the one you can’t get enough of despite all the new, expensive avant-garde pizza shops that have mushroomed conspicuously across the entire neighbourhood and seem to have taken over the whole world...but not you. Because you value quality and genuine customer service, and know this business understands and works doubly hard to give you your money’s worth. I’ve been using A1 Auto Transport whenever I left California for business: they may not be the cheapest car transporters around, but the sheer professionalism, dedication, and heart they put into their work is just amazing and worth my every dime. I’m probably one of the most sceptical people you would ever meet. I’m rarely convinced when bombarded with dubious, self-congratulating ads of companies that look like they’ve spent tons of money on marketing materials just to lure your average guy in. A1 Auto Transport is the complete opposite of these companies. My car always arrived promptly on schedule, never with a hint of scratch or dirt or damage, and they keep me updated every step of the process. When you’ve found a company whose genuine care for their customers comes naturally, you stand by them no matter what. It’s the most logical thing to do.”

“A1 Auto Transport helped me move a vehicle to Iowa from Houston. I was a bit nervous, no knowing much about such services. Thanks to Joe, I was able to clear the fog a little. He answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that left no room for interpretation. The details were straightforward. I picked Sunday as the pickup date, since I wasn’t at work, and they accommodated me. The truck arrived an hour early, yet the driver patiently waited for me to arrive. He thoroughly checked my car for scratches or anything that might affect the transport then drove it onto the truck. I was given a 2 day time window during which the car was supposed to arrive in, and it got to Iowa in the evening of the first day. The trip didn’t damage it at all. Next time a friend wants to move, I’ll surely recommend A1 Auto Transport.”
