Moving Tips & Guides
Moving Questions
Just as with any professional that you hire to handle a major job, you will want to ask a lot of questions before you hire your mover to make sure that you familiarize yourself with their policies and the moving process in general. Here are the 10 most important questions that you should ask any mover before you decide to hire that company to assist you with your move.
Make sure you are hiring a moving ...
Many moving scams start as brokers pretending to be moving companies. Some legitimate moving companies will even sell you off to another company. This should be avoided since you can’t screen that second company and their services are usually questionable at best.
Reasons for Moving
There are many reasons why a person or a family might choose to move. These reasons can range from personal and financial reasons to employment reasons and even a simple lifestyle change or change of scenery. Getting a better grasp and understanding of these reasons might help you better prepare for your move.
Local Moves
Local moves are typically defined by moves that occur in a radius of less than 50 miles. Even if you aren’t moving very far away, or even out of your town, there are still a lot of preparations that need to be made for a local move, and learning about the intricacies of a local move can better help you prepare.
Be Wary of Rogue Movers
There are numerous unlicensed and unregistered moving companies waiting to scam customers. If a company offers an unusually low estimate, asks for a large cash deposit and an unmarked truck or rental truck, they may be unregistered or unlicensed. A common scam from these companies is low-balling the estimate and then demanding a greater amount when they show up, if the customer disputes the amount, the company will often hold the customers’ items hostage until they’re paid.

All Around Movers
I thought they did a good job ... They were very informative. ...And the movers did a great job, the crew that they sent. They indicated that delivery for my move would occur in a few days ... But that didn't happen. I had to keep calling to find out when they were going to deliver. ...They had to transfer all my stuff from one truck to another which I didn't think that was going to happen. But apparently the truck that they loaded was not a truck that could do an out of state move. ...I was a little bit surprised about that. But the guys that did ultimately deliver also did a good job. So the drivers were good. ... We had a little, few items that were broken.

Moving to Illinois?


Illinois, located almost smack dab in the heart of America, has long been thought of as the perfect example of American life. From its all-American feel to its Midwestern appeal, Illinois has been the home to three U.S. presidents and is currently the fifth most populated state in the U.S.

With a major metropolitan area in Chicago and its prime location on Lake Michigan, Chicago has been one of the key U.S. trade cities since its inception in 1818 and is often referred to as the “Second City” with New York being the first. But in addition to Chicago, Illinois is home to small towns and suburbs alike that are simultaneously both culturally diverse and rich in Americana.

If you’re moving to Illinois, there are a lot of things you’re going to need to know. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place.

Things to Know When Moving to Illinois

Illinois Climate

  • Illinois has a climate that varies substantially, depending on your location in the state. Because the northern portion of the state (near Wisconsin) and the southern portion (near Kentucky and Missouri) are separated by over 400 miles, the climate tends to shift. Also, the location of Illinois in the central part of the country tends to see many differentiating weather patterns and colliding fronts that create many thunderstorms and tornadoes. Winters in Illinois tend to be cold, ranging from around 27 to 41 degrees in December and January. However, summers tend to be hot and humid and temperatures can often reach into the low-to-mid-90s. In Chicago, the wind coming off of Lake Michigan often swirls to create blinding snowstorms in the winter and extremely low wind chills. (Helpful Link: Illinois Weather)

  • Registering your Car: Upon your arrival in Illinois after moving to the state permanently, you have a total of 30 days to update your registration and have your vehicle registered in the state before you may be required to pay a penalty. (Helpful Link: Illinois DMV)

  • Obtaining an Illinois Driver’s License: An Illinois Driver’s License can be obtained at any Illinois DMV location. The state requires new Illinois residents to update their license from their previous state to an Illinois driver’s license within 90 days of moving.
