Moving Day is upon us! We are expecting our movers tomorrow at 8am. Let's hope the weather holds out and we have as nice a summer day in Chicago as we did today. After moving me out of my apartment last month ourselves (with the help of a brother-in-law with a tahoe!), the idea of hiring movers for this leg of the journey was a no-brainer. The above picture is about 1/3 of our basement full of boxes. And we don't even own much furniture!
- Ask your friends who they have used and what their experience was. We picked Jay Movers based on the numerous positive recommendations from co-workers.
- Want it on the cheap? Check out craigslist.org. Your neighbor with a pick up might be happy to help you move a truckload for $50.
- Read the fine print: Will the movers take a credit card the day of the move? Is there a minimum travel time, a seperate truck fee, moving boxes included?
- Have bottled water or soft drinks on hand the day of the move. Those guys are working hard so you don't have to!
