Wood River State To State Moving Services

Wood River Long Distance Moving Companies

Whether moving out of state or just across the street, preparation is key. There are a lot of tasks you must accomplish before the big day including packing and making transport arrangements. Hiring a professional moving company gives you peace of mind knowing that your move will be efficient and fast. Moving to Wood River should be exciting, and A-1 Auto Transport is here to make sure of that. We are based in Illinois and have over 25 years experience moving house throughout the U.S. We also relocate vehicles.

Tips to help you relocate with ease

  • Declutter your house. If you’re still considering holding on to clothes that no longer fit you, don’t. There are charity homes you can donate to, or you hold a yard sale to recover some of your money.
  • Pack similar items together. For instance, if you start with your clothes, make sure every clothing you own has been packed. The same applies to electronics, books, and kitchen appliances.
  • Find a good moving company to help you move. Put more effort when looking for a moving company since this will mean the difference between a good and a bad move.
  • Label your boxes correctly to make it easier when loading and unloading. Be detailed when describing the contents of each box for instance, kid’s clothes, bedroom, glassware for kitchen and so on. Be sure to label the top and both sides of the box so that you can easily identify the boxes no matter how they are stacked.
  • Use bubble wrap and unprinted newsprint to wrap your breakables to prevent breakages. Wrap everything separately to cushion your items and use soft clothes to fill up any empty spaces left after you’ve finished packing.

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

  • Reliability: Your friends may be more than willing to help you move, but some items are too bulky to handle without professional help. Movers have undergone extensive training and will know exactly how to lift and carry your household items.
  • Efficiency: When moving on your own, you’ll take a long time to have everything moved. However, professional movers have the expertise to pack, load and unload your household items in a day or two. They work with speed to make sure there are no delays in delivery.
  • Accountability: Professional movers know how much you value your belongings and will do their best to ensure everything is accounted for. They provide adequate insurance cover and will compensate you for any damages caused during the move.

Tips for finding a reputable mover

Friends and relatives are the first people you should consult when looking for a moving company. Since they are people you trust, you can be sure to get unbiased assessments of movers you could hire. Ask how their experience was and if they can recommend the company they used.

A company that’s been accredited by the Better Business Bureau shows confidence and honesty in their performance. The BBB gives credibility to movers who uphold the high standards of business practices. You can also check if any complaints have been lodged against your mover and how they were handled.

Search for your moving company in multiple sites to find out what people are saying. The Angie’s List is a reliable site where customers who have moved leave their comments. Consistent negative reviews are a red flag, and such companies should be avoided. Other sites to consider include Yelp and TrustLink.

A reputable mover has nothing to hide and should have a physical office where it operates from. They should also provide their contact information and clearly display their brand on their fleet of vehicles for easy identification.

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!
