FAQs

How to find a reputable moving company?

While reviews are usually a great place to start, more and more companies disregard them completely, as the recent trend is to buy good reviews. A good rule of thumb is to always call the company you like and ask all the questions you have. They should be able to provide you with details you need with straight answers.

Can I pack items by myself?

While Moving Companies Chicago offers packing services, they are by no means mandatory. If you have an idea of how to pack and you want to handle it yourself, you are welcome to do it. We still advise you to leave the packing of fragile items to professionals, but that’s entirely up to you.

When should I book moving services?

The best answer is as soon as possible. While we may still be able to fit you in our schedule if you call in the last minute, this is by no means a guarantee. So a good practice is to book your move the moment you know exactly when you’ll be moving. In terms of actual numbers, a 4-week headroom prior to the move is required for most moves. However, if you decide to move on a weekday during a less busy month, booking 2 weeks in advance is going to be alright.

Do you have your own packing supplies or should I buy them myself?

We have all the necessary supplies for packing, furniture disassembly and loading of items. If you want us to use packing supplies that you have bought, you can request that when you book the service. Keep in mind our supplies are free when you book your move.

What services do you provide?

Moving Companies Chicago can take care of all kinds of moves, regardless of the distance. We also offer packing, unpacking, disassembling, reassembling furniture as well as space setup one all the items are transported.

How much is the move going to cost?
