To move within Illinois, you would require coughing up approximately about $50-$75 per mover per hour. Usually, a home moving in Illinois would take a minimum of 2 laborers and 2 hours in addition to the 1 hour drive time and this means you would need to pay for at least 3 hours for 2 movers. The lowest amount you can expect a mover in Illinois to bill you would be between $250 and $300 unless your move needs more hours or more people.

When you have to move outside Illinois, (interstate or long-distance), hiring a full-service moving company or a partial moving service company is the best option as you need to travel thousands of miles. However, to move locally in Illinois, you don’t need to hire a professional company but multiple options can save you hundreds of dollars.

Different ways to move somewhere inside Illinois

  • Hire a full-service or partial moving service company

    When you rent a moving company in Illinois, it relieves the pain of moving. With an experienced team of workers, the company will help you pack your belongings, load the truck, unload it, and arrange them inside the home. Your relocation will get a professional touch and the process will be fast and effortless.

    As a full-service moving company is expensive, you can even go for a partial moving service company if the budget is beyond your reach. However, the partial moving company will only help you load the truck and unload it.

  • Hire a truck and load it with your stuff

    When you feel there is no need to hire a professional company, you can rent a truck and fill it with the household stuff to drive it to the new home in Illinois. It is cheaper and you have the freedom to take moving-related decisions. The only cost you need to bear is the truck rental, which may be somewhere around $30 to $47 per day plus the fuel cost.

  • Hire a portable container

    Portable moving containers are comparatively new and have gained popularity for the convenience to fill them with your stuff. The company will deliver a container to your doorstep and you can fill your belongings in it as and when you feel like. Once you have filled it, the company will deliver it to your new address. A portable container within 50 miles would cost you around $400 to $500.

  • Rent a tow behind cargo or utility trailer

    One of the easiest ways to relocate the home is to rent a utility trailer and tow it behind your vehicle. Fill your household belongings in the utility trailer but you need to make sure that you have just a limited volume of items.

  • Move the stuff in your car

    Another easiest way to move the household belongings is to squeeze them into your car. Maybe it is a little tough to squeeze everything into the car with open seats, floors, and a trunk but this is extremely cheap and you don’t have to spend anything extra.

While moving within Illinois, you had multiple options, mostly DIY but moving interstate or cross-country are a little different. Here, your moving options are greatly based on how far you’re moving and how much you are taking along with you.

Though the DIY was a good option to move within Illinois, never try this to move cross-country as the trucks are expensive to drive cross country and not to mention the gas, drive time, and all the headaches that come with driving long distances.

To move cross-country or long distance, you’ve two options:

Full Service Moving:

When you hire a full-service moving company to relocate the home cross-country, the process becomes easier, smoother, and comfortable. A full-service moving company in Illinois will handle special items and can also take up additional add-ons whenever required.

Partial Moving Services:

A partial moving service company is a good option if a full-service mover is beyond your budget. The services are cheaper but help you load and unload the truck. You can also ask for packing services but you may require paying an extra amount.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

When you hire a moving company in Illinois, ensure it is properly licensed and insured. As per the US federal law, all interstate movers need to register with the Federal Government, and you can confirm this in the U.S. DOT system.

Also, you need to check the track record of the mover, as a few rogue movers would frequently change names to escape from authorities. Check the company’s profile on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), whether it is accredited by the BBB.

When you hire a mover in our Moving Directory, you can be confident about its quality of services, as we hold detailed scrutiny of the background of every mover before adding it.

There should be a 6-week window between approaching the moving company and the date of moving. As you approach a minimum of 4 movers, each company will send a representative to your home to take the stock of the entire belongings before offering the final quote. After this, multiple levels of negotiation take place, which will consume two weeks or more. Hence, it’s always good to maintain a 6-week gap.

When you approach a moving company in Illinois, you need to consider:

  • Reputation
  • Insurance
  • The company’s policy
  • Experience
  • Cost of service
  • Cancellation policy
  • Referrals

Usually, car moving companies deal with the transport of cars. They are specialized in auto moving, and the costs are different from home moving. However, a few home moving companies also deal with auto transport. To know more about auto moving, read the MoverJunction auto moving guide.

Usually, people hire a storage unit to stock their belongings when there is a shortage of space at the new home. When you rent a storage unit from the moving company, it does not guarantee any price cut, but that depends upon your skill to negotiate. As there’s no fixed cost for a storage unit, it can be either cheaper or costlier. However, when you hire a storage facility from the moving company you chose to relocate, you save a lot of time.
