If you are moving to Franklin Park or moving to Chicago, then let us be the first to introduce you to the neighborhood. What makes Franklin Park a great place to live are the people. The residents are ready to give you a warm welcome to the chilly Windy City, a nickname given to our little corner of the U.S.A. because of the cold gusts from Lake Michigan in the winter.

 

Franklin Park is located right in the heart of Illinois. It is close enough to Downtown Chicago to get a decent deep dish pizza while maintaining that suburban, big-town feel.

What Is the First Thing to Do When Moving to Franklin Park?

When a move is on the horizon, your mind can become flooded with emotion. There is a sense of excitement for the new and a fear of the change ahead. Along with that emotion comes a long list of to-dos. Moving is one of the most time-consuming tasks a person can take on in their life. No matter how many you go through, moving can feel overwhelming. As some of the most experienced movers in the business, our Franklin Park moving specialists have compiled a comprehensive moving checklist, including everything you might have forgotten to consider otherwise.

 

The first thing to do when moving into any house is to break out the measuring tape. Go through all of the rooms of your new digs and jot down the dimensions. This will help you visualize your new living space and help organize how you pack. Construct a floor plan for your new house and start packing boxes with corresponding labels attached. Try to declutter as best you can while stowing away your belongings. You can usually donate slightly used items. Our team of professional movers suggests making four piles: taking, tossing, donating, and selling. For the items that have no value or don’t fit into your plans, let them go.

 

If you’d rather hand off the stresses of packing, reach out to All My Sons Moving & Storage. We have the best packing services in Franklin Park and the rest of Illinois. We supply our packing equipment and use our industry expertise to pack even the oddest and difficult items. Your fragile heirlooms and clunky furniture will be as safe and secure as the rest of your belongings.

 

Once you have just the items you are keeping, call All My Sons Moving & Storage to discuss insurance and difficult items that need to be handled carefully, like a piano. Double-check with HOAs and city rules and regulations such as special moving parking permits. Then you can rest assured until the moving day arrives!

What Do I Do on Moving Day?

Did you get some good rest? We know how difficult it is to get a good night’s sleep before a move. But hopefully, you're well-rested and ready to take on the day. There’s still a lot of work ahead, but if you count on the efforts of our team at All My Sons Moving & Storage, you will be well on your way to a successful moving day.

 

Before the moving truck arrives, make sure your walls and floors are protected. Lay out some plastic on the floor, and create a makeshift barrier along the walls to prevent unnecessary scuffs and blemishes. With all your belongings packed up and ready to go, don’t be afraid to let the professionals take the lead. Our Franklin Park movers have a system in place when it comes to filling the moving truck. Let them know what needs to be unloaded together, then let our team safely and methodically pack the truck for the optimal move.

 

When you arrive at your new home, keep track of your items as they are taken off the moving truck, and report any potential damages. A friend or family member can advise our team where the furniture goes using the labels you created. If you are renting the new space, do not forget to do a final inspection with your landlord.

 

And there you have it - you are all set! Tip your movers, write a review, and start settling into your new home!
