Moving Companies in Chicago, IL

Ready to Hit the Road and Get Moving from Chicago?

While Chicago is an amazing city, the tight quarters, narrow streets and abundance of buildings makes it slightly more difficult to move out of than other metropolitan locations. But with a little planning, and some help from an experienced moving service, moving out of this large Illinois city can be a breeze. 

What Options do I have for Moving? 

Your moving options are as varied as the toppings on a Chicago-style dog! They vary by price and by the amount of work you want to do. Because everyone’s needs and moving budgets are different, your best bet is to evaluate your options based on your specific circumstance. Are you working with a tight budget? Full-service probably isn’t ideal. Do you want to drive your own vehicle? Truck rental probably isn’t ideal either. Do you need a low-cost move but don’t want to drive a rental truck? U-Pack may be your best bet! 

With more than 240 service centers situated conveniently throughout the country, U-Pack can move you to virtually any U.S. or Canadian destination (including Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico).

Be Aware of Parking 

When you’re moving from an apartment or popular residential area in Chicago, it’s important to be aware of the parking situation. Is there room for a moving truck? Are there limitations on how long it can be parked? Are parking permits required? Do you need to reserve the service elevator for moving day? Because of tight city streets and strict parking regulations, there are many areas in Chicago where moving equipment is not allowed. Call U-Pack at 844-362-5303844-594-3077, and a U-Pack moving specialist can verify door delivery to your area.

Once you’ve verified parking, the next step is to review your rental agreement. Following the terms of your lease (giving timely notice and following proper check-out procedures) should ensure a returned deposit. (Tip: make sure to leave a forwarding address so they’ll know where to send your deposit.)

What Should I do Before Moving from Chicago? 

Attend one last Bears, Cubs, or Sox game and eat as much deep dish pizza as you can! Your new city will have a lot to offer, but don't forget to enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of Chicago before you head out.
