How to move locally and find good movers Edgewater Chicago

Start your move on time

Even though it is ‘just’ a local move, it needs to be planned and organized to detail. Start by writing down all the items you need to move. Then compare floor plans of both old and new home and see if you need to make some changes.

Declutter and organize

A relocation is a perfect chance to reduce the number of items you are moving. To do this, go through your home and check if there are some items you no longer need. Usually, every home has them. Get rid of those items by selling, donating or recycling them. This way you can earn some money and also reduce the moving costs.

Find good movers Edgewater Chicago

Reliable movers like us are the perfect option, based on our experience and commitment. However, if you want to compare a couple of options (which you should always do, by the way) be ready to do the following:

  • ask for recommendations – check with your friends or family members who recently moved
  • avoid suspicious moving companies who changed their name many times – they can be fraudulent movers
  • check for extra fees
  • ask for the precise moving estimate
  • don’t sign any blank contracts
  • don’t pay any large deposit – it can be a sign of a scam

At Wolley Movers, you can easily get a free moving estimate. Just go to our website and fill in the required information. This way you will get an idea of your moving costs. However, we provide precise moving estimates, too. If you want to know the exact moving quote, somebody from our team will make an in-house visit and make the precise list of your items and tell you the moving costs. You should know that they will calculate the costs according to the number of your items, but also:

  • the number of heavy items
  • the number of specialty items 
  • stairs/floors
  • additional moving or packing services.

What is important about this moving quote hassle is that you shouldn’t worry about it once you get the moving estimate. We are reliable movers Edgewater Chicago, and we’ll never update the price or add some other hidden costs to your moving estimate.

Start Packing

Packing can be an overwhelming process if you don’t know what you are doing. As experienced movers Edgewater Chicago, we can tell you that organization is everything. This means the following:

  • prepare enough of the packing supplies – proper boxes that are in good condition, markers, tape, bubble wrap, cloths, papers.
  • start packing bigger items first and than work your way to the smaller and more valuable items.
  • be sure to label your boxes – we can’t stress this strongly enough. If you write down what are the items inside your boxes, the movers will put them into the right rooms and you will unpack quickly and easily.
  • protect valuables – fragile and valuable items should be extra protected during the move. Also be careful to fill any extra space in boxes with those items. This way, they will not break if boxes move during transport.
  • for specialty items like pianos or pool tables, maybe it’s better to contact the moving company. For example, movers Edgewater Chicago like Wolley Movers will relocate your piano in the most professional way. They are experienced in disassembling items like this and moving them safely to your new home.
