The best moving tips
- Purge your items. Don’t move with items you have not used for years; it’s a waste of space and money. This way, you’ll be moving into your new house with only the necessary items.
- Make sure your utilities are set up before moving. Electricity, internet and hot water need to be connected beforehand so that you don’t end up showering with cold water.
- Book early to guarantee your spot with a professional moving company. 4-6 weeks will suffice so that you can pick a date that’s convenient for you.
- The federal law bans moving companies from moving items that pose a risk to the public safety. Hazardous materials such as propane, ammunition, gasoline, and acids to mention just a few are among the items movers won't relocate. Ask your mover what they don’t move so that you can make other arrangements.
- Update your address ahead of time so that your bills, packages and credit card statements can be forwarded to your new address. Remember to notify business contacts and your friends of the change.
Why you need a professional moving company
- Affordability: Most people think hiring a moving company is expensive. But if you consider the hassle of separately hiring a truck, the equipment, and people to help you load and unload, you’ll realize that you’re better off hiring a mover. They’ll send their experts to inspect your home so that they can give you accurate moving estimates. Everything is calculated including the distance to make sure there are no surprises along the way.
- Experience: When it comes to moving, don't leave anything to chance. Professional movers have been doing this for a long time and know all the tricks to make your move as simple as possible. They are skilled and have the resources to move your items safely and deliver them on time.
- Protection for your items: Professional movers offer insurance cover to cushion you from losses. Accidents are unpredictable and knowing that your items are protected will give you peace of mind.

How to find a reliable moving company
A major fact to consider before hiring a moving company is licensing. Intrastate movers are required to obtain permits from the Illinois Commerce Commission. If you’re moving out of state, confirm if the company is licensed by the FMCSA and has a valid USDOT number.
Check the reputation of the company with the Better Business Bureau. The BBB only endorses companies that consistently provide high quality moving services and quickly responds to consumer claims. You can also find out what other people are saying about your moving company by reading their reviews.
The recommendations from co-workers, relatives, and friends can be valuable. By sharing their moving experience, you can determine which company to hire. Since these are people you trust, they'll provide genuine opinions and the information will save you time you’d have spent researching several movers.
Find out if your moving company has any membership with reputable trade associations like the Illinois Mover’s and Warehousemen’s Association. Only members that adhere to their Code of Ethics are certified. Consumers are protected from being scammed since to be a member, a company has to be thoroughly screened.
