Why you should engage a moving company


Moving is strenuous and most people would rather avoid it. Asking friends to help may seem like a good idea until they go missing the last minute. They might have other commitments or may just be avoiding the moving hustle.

Moving companies appear at the agreed time with all the necessary resources. They conduct the move swiftly and deliver the goods as contracted. The items arrive in the same condition they left.

A moving company will only leave once the job is accomplished. They use every available solution to adhere to the contract.

Peace of mind

The activities required to make a move successful are numerous and time-consuming. You need to hire equipment and procure materials. The kids and pets need to be accounted for, while you switch utilities and change the lease agreement.

These tasks are overwhelming and stressful. A moving company jumps in to ensure they handle all tasks, safely and swiftly. The company is experienced and knows how to keep you relaxed the entire day. As you deal with personal matters the heavy duties are handled by professionals.


Using a moving company ensures your items arrive intact. The company has well trained employees who have the experience and equipment to ensure the safety of all your items.

  • Glassware is wrapped with clothing
  • Utensils are wrapped with used newspaper and magazines
  • Bulky furniture is dismantled and moved in bits
  • Pets have specialized moving services
  • Books are moved in suitcases or wooden boxes with wheels

Less chances of injury

A mover has the experience to know probable areas of accidents. The employees are fit and skilled to keep themselves and the items safe. They use grippers to hold slippery items and winches to lift very heavy items several storeys high.

How to find the best mover in Ottawa

Find Illinois moving companies at IMAWA. The association has the widest catalogue of movers in the state. They can also recommend the best mover and educate you about moving.

Ask for quotations from several companies. Make a comparison of how the services are charged, discounts offered and delivery durations.

Use customer reviews sites like to know the opinions of previous customers.

Validate the company’s credentials at FMCSA. Enter the IDOT number and view the permits and validity of licenses and insurance.

If you are unsure about anything in the contract, consult a professional. Avoid signing blank and incomplete documents.

The best tips for a successful move

  • Take photographs of electrical connections and the house arrangement before packing. It guides you when arranging your new premises and inspecting the items’ condition on arrival.
  • Pack 80% of your belongings before the movers arrive. Dismantle large furniture and place the items in a strategic location. The company charges by the hour, so, ensure they spend the least possible time handling the move.
  • Label all the boxes along the sides. Put clear warning signs on the boxes containing fragile items. The movers will exercise extra caution when handling such boxes.
  • Compare both inventories after all items are loaded.
  • Sign the contract after the move has been done as agreed.
