Illinois, IL - Best Moving Companies & Movers

A Quick Overview of Illinois

Did you know that “Illinois” derives its name from a Native American word that means “tribes of superior men”? What an apt name for an awesome place.

The state of Illinois became a state on December 3, 1818, since then, it has evolved in terms of culture, history and abundance.

Today, the state of Illinois is thriving in the fields of manufacturing, agriculture, coal mining and oil production. The state manufactures various products including food and agricultural products, chemicals, industrial machinery, transportation equipment, and computer peripherals. In the bustling Chicago district, commerce also is on the rise thanks to great iron, steel, a railroad center, and a world-class port.

Moving to Illinois? Here are Some Things You Need to Know

If you want to become a member of the “tribes of superior men”, you have to prepare yourself thoroughly for an Illinois move.

Here are some things that you need to know about relocation and finding a good moving company:

  • Plan your move months in advance. Rushing things will lead to disasters and increased cost too!
  • Plan out how you will do your move. Will you opt for a self-move or will you hire full-service movers? Hiring full-service movers will speed up your move and lessen your physical effort. Some people think that a self-move is cheaper, but once you include all of the transportation and road trip costs, you’ll see that it’s not a wise option.
  • Start your packing at least 2 months before your actual moving date. Start with the items you rarely use and work your way up into the essentials.
  • When packing stuff, begin with packing smaller items. That way, you’ll have more space for the bigger furniture which may need some disassembling.
  • Don’t try to do everything on your own. Always seek assistance either from friends and family, or from professional movers. You might end up breaking your back, or damaging your goods.
  • Ask about insurance policies if you want to be 100% sure about the safety of your items. Most moving companies offer this, but third party carriers also work.

A Convenient Way to Look for Movers

Here’s a good rule of thumb when looking for movers- always get quotes from at least 3 companies. That way, you’ll have options and the chance to compare services.
