Recommendations for VPS hosting?

I've searched the archives, but I don't see a recent post on this. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
I'm looking for recommendations for a reliable VPS hosting service. I'm in the US.
A place where I can start small and then seamlessly upgrade as my site grows.
I need a Cpanel.
Bonus points if they will move my website from my old host for me at mutually agreed upon time. I can move the site myself, but it'll probably result in some tears and take a lot more time than it should.
And some backstory:
I have a website currently hosted under a shared server plan that I'd like to move to a VPS because a) It's running a little slow and b) I have the time to move it and fine tune it right now and c) I think a spike could be a-coming, and I'd like to ready.
It's a heavilty customized wordpress blog, an openx installation and a couple of email accounts and email forwarders.
It's currently hosted on Hostgator. I've tried to set up a VPS account with them and get them to move the site like they said they would, but it's turning into such a fiasco that I'm ready to look for an alternative host. Normally they're really good with customer service but I feel like I've fallen into a black hole.
So, any got any other recommendations?
