Elgin Moving Tips

Whether you’re heading to Elgin or just doing some daydreaming, we’ve got you covered.

Check out these moving day hacks to keep things easy and efficient.


Movers need to have an official Department of Transportation (DOT) number, which you should be able to find on their website. If a moving company handles long distance moves that cross state lines, they'll also need a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) number. Don't forget to check reviews and look for any insurance info they may feature on their website.

When you move to a more built-up or urban area, chances are they won't let you park an entire semi truck in front of your apartment. Your movers will have to park the main truck at a staging area, and use a smaller box truck or van to transport your stuff to (and from) the trailer. This is called a moving shuttle, and the inconvenience comes at a price. Blame your city council.

A Elgin move can cost you anywhere from $200 to $7900 and beyond. It all comes down to how much you’re moving, and how far you’re traveling. Keep in mind, local movers charge per mover, per hour (with about 2 movers per room), and long distance movers charge by weight (or volume) and miles.

It's always a good idea to get insurance, and in the interest of being responsible, we're not going to tell you to skip it. However, if you're feeling risky and you're only moving a couple blocks (without anything fragile thrown in the mix), you may be able to get away with the basic coverage offered by your movers.

Some movers provide storage units, but not all of them. It’s always a good idea to shop around for a moving company that can provide all the services you’ll need. Fortunately, iMoving’s marketplace lets you see what’s on the menu with each mover, including secure storage options.
