Moving to Illinois

Set your MOOve up for success!

6 to 8 weeks prior to your move, try to take care of the following;

  • Sort and Declutter: Go through each room and decide what to keep, sell, donate, or throw away.
  • Start Collecting Packing Supplies: Boxes, tape, bubble wrap, etc.
  • Start Packing Non-Essentials: Seasonal items, rarely used gadgets, etc.
  • Measure New Spaces: Ensure large furniture will fit in your new home.
  • Change of Address: Notify the post office, banks, credit card companies, and subscription services.
  • Pack a Survival Kit: Include essentials for the first few days (clothes, toiletries, medications, important documents).

Don’t hire the wrong Moving Company!

Moovers Chicago is all about Consumer education and awareness, and though we would love it if you booked your move with us, even if you decide to choose a different company, we want you and your belongings in safe hands.

  • Only hire a licensed and insured company
  • Ensure the company you choose has a good reputation online across several platforms (Better Business Bureau, Yelp, Google, etc.)
  • Ask questions when obtaining an estimate. A good moving company can tell you how they will protect your furniture during the move, what their I.C.C. number is, what forms of payment they accept, etc.

How can you save time and money?

  • Book your move on an off-peak date: If at all possible, avoid the first week and last week of the month, as these dates are considered peak dates and rates can be higher than other dates.
  • Pack your boxes: Try to pack all of your books, dishes, and small loose items into boxes prior to your move. This will ensure that your move gets done quicker and with more efficiency, and can save you money on materials as well.
  • Get familiar with your new address: Try to scope out parking for the moving truck at your current and new location, is there a wider stairwell or hallway in the back or front of the building? Does your new Landlord or HOA have specific requirements for moving into the building that the moving company should be aware of?
