Chicago Long-Distance Movers

Chicago is a big, exciting city with a lot of experienced residents. Moving to Chicago could make you feel like an outsider, but we’re going to fast-track your education with these tips about the Windy City:

  • Cold Weather: Cold is an understatement. Lake Michigan can make snow and wind feel 10 degrees colder than it is. If you’re moving in the winter, bring winter clothes. Watch out for black ice too. Buy an emergency kit in case you get stuck in the snow.
  • The Beach: In the summer, you can hang out at the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan playing volleyball, walking the dog, visiting restaurants, and much more.
  • Public Transportation: Traffic is dense here, so residents love using ridesharing, buses, elevated (“L”) trains, and taxis, along with the downtown Pedway, or pedestrian walkway. You might not use a car much here. 

Carefully look at your new neighborhood and figure out where you’ll park your moving truck or cube. Ask your neighbors’ permission to be in the way for a bit.
