Household Goods Moving Tips to Chicago

Chicago, IL

The city of Chicago is the third-largest in the entire United States, home to over 2.7 million residents in the city proper and 9.5 million residents in the Greater Chicago Area, known as Chicagoland, it is one of the most popular household moving locations in the entire country. As stressful as moving is, shipping your stuff to Chicago from pretty much anywhere is actually relatively easy, as long as you have the budget for it, as Chicago is home to quite a few household goods transportation companies, including quite a few interstate movers. Economically, Chicago has one of the largest economies in the United States, which means that a lot of people are moving to Chicago for work, especially since the U.S. economy is slowly recovering from the recession that it was plunged into six or seven years years ago.

Typically, when you’re shipping to Chicago, you’re likely shipping to or from one of the many suburbs that surround the city proper, and this is easy enough for interstate moving companies to do. Suburb cities have less restrictions regarding larger trucks entering the city limits, and cities that sit on the outskirts are typically younger, which means that their roads are wider and built to handle not just more vehicles, but also larger vehicles, and they’re built for cars in ways that older metropolitan areas are not. This makes it easier and cheaper for you, at least when you’re transporting all your worldly possessions to a completely new area. Shipping into Chicago proper, however, is a bit different, because there are sections of the city that large household moving vans just cannot get into or out of due to their size, or else they cannot get there due to local ordinances that prohibit large trucks from traveling through those specific areas.

If you’re moving to an area like that, your goods will likely be transported to a local depot, where they’ll be unloaded from the interstate moving van and then loaded onto smaller moving trucks, a lot like smaller U-Haul trucks, that will be able to maneuver around those hard-t0-get-to areas or get under those weight restrictions brought on by city ordinance. This is a fairly common practice when moving to a larger metro area, and your moving company will let you know if it is needed, what the additional fees will be (if any; they should be included in the quote you’re given), and they’ll let you know what company they’re contracting with and what trucks will be arriving. Some loads may take two or even three local moving vans, depending on how much you’re moving, so be prepared for that as well.
