What Customers Say About Our Chicago Cross Country Movers
I just had these guys pack for me and load up the truck for a move from Chicago to California.... read more While I can't yet comment on the delivery service as my stuff won't arrive until next week, I can say that Adrian and his team did a great job. Very communicative, fairly priced and he even mopped the muddy floor afterwards! Plus all my phone contact with the CA office thus far has been great, everyone has been extremely helpful and reassuring about this huge move. Definitely would recommend, at least on this end!UPDATE: I used Cross Country again when circumstances dictated I move back to Chicago from California. Johnny and Dan at the main office were super helpful and treated me like family, often taking the time to reassure me when I was totally freaking out. Oscar and his crew did a fantastic job of packing and loading in CA, while (a different) Dan and his crew took excellent care unloading in Chicago. He even called and requested a couple more guys be sent over to make it go as quickly as smoothly as possible. Long distance moves are PAINFUL, but Cross Country does their best to take the sting out whenever they can. If you have to do it, this is the moving company to use. Highly recommended! read lessFranny S.Chicago9/03/2017
I called these guys, after years of do it yourself and trying to save money. I found this to be... read more well worth the investment! HASSLE FREE!! I LOVE it!! I'm tired of U-haul, IT always turns out to be more than the $19.99 u expected to pay. Plus the unreliable friends or people with last minute changes leaving you stuck with a truck and no movers! on one of my moves I actually had friends of mine ROLL my round cherry wood table top for about 20 yards on the cement sidewalk from the truck all the way into my new apt. Now at every meal I sit and look at the damage along the edges of what was a beautiful table. Wondering how I might fix and more over how did they think that was good idea. So for my 3rd move in 3 years - I wanted hassle free and that is exactly what I got when I decided to go with a moving co. no arguments , no you OWE ME.. no damages and better yet MY FAV, IT WASN'T VERY EXPENSIVE!! YAY ME! GOING FORWARD as far as me and my back are concerned Chicago Cross Movers is the only way to go!! THANKS!!!! read lessMimo R.Chicago3/27/2016

The Weather in Chicago
The city of Chicago belongs to the humid continental climate zone. It has four distinct seasons. Its summers are quite warm and pretty humid. Average temperatures in July revolve around 75 degrees, with around twenty days experiencing temperatures over 90 degrees. Thunderstorms are relatively common during spring and summer months.
Chicago is known for having cold winters, and rightfully so. The average January high is still below freezing point. There is a lot of snow, so prepare to shovel once you move here. The official lowest temperature ever recorded in Chicago was -27 degrees back in 1985.
If you feel like the snow might be a good reason to reconsider moving to Chicago, don't worry. The city offers numerous winter activities to help you fight the cold. Some of the most fun activities include:
- Chicago Holiday Sightseeing Tour. Each year during holiday season, the Big Bus offers a hop-on hop-off tour of the city that allows you to experience Christmas in Chicago in a whole new way.
- The Field Museum. This is one of the rare museums in the country that offers season-specific events, such as exploring how plants and animals prepare for winter temperatures. It can be a fun family activity, as both kids and adults are bound to enjoy it.
- Brookfield Zoo. The Chicago Zoological Society also offers holiday-specific events, such as the Polar Lights Show.
- The Maggie Daley Park. If you have never tried ice skating – now is the time and the place to do so! The ice skating rink also offers magnificent views of the city's skyline, which makes it a unique experience and a romantic date-night option.
- Donut Fest. This might not be exactly a winter activity, but it is held during the winter and it's absolutely delicious. If you have a sweet tooth, you don't want to miss out on this festival.
Check out more ideas for fun things to do in Chicago during the cold winter days. However, don't expect a day off of work just because it is snowing.
Now that you know a little bit more about Chicago, it is time to find the perfect neighborhood for yourself. In order to make that task a little easier, we at Cross Country Movers have decided to shortlist the best neighborhoods to live in. These neighborhoods include:
- Near North Side. Technically, this area is comprised of a number of smaller neighborhoods. However, the whole area is characterized by a high living standard. Probably even the highest in the city. While the prices are not exactly low, in the case of New North Side, you know exactly what you are paying for. The area is home to numerous museums, the Chicago Shakespeare Theater, and countless restaurants.
- Lincoln Park. Costs of living in this neighborhood are also pretty high, but the area is absolutely breathtaking. There is plenty of parks, opportunities for outdoor activities, as well a nature museum, and a zoo. It is also home to countless bars and nightclubs.
- Near South Side. A little more affordable, and also a little further from the downtown area of Chicago, this neighborhood offers countless condos for you to choose from. It has low crime rates as well as awesome outdoor venues.
- West Town. Perfect for artists and creative youth, this neighborhood's real estate prices are growing, but at this point, it is still relatively affordable. It also has very low crime rates.
- North Center. This area is the perfect one for raising children. It is home to excellent schools, and it also has one of the highest graduation rates in the country. It has low crime rates and is home to a bunch of shops, restaurants, and bars. It also hosts Ribfest Chicago, a festival dedicated to ribs.

Chicago Cross Country Movers Review
They were able to provide advice regarding every aspect of the move!
I moved to a new apartment in Marina del Rey, CA from Seattle, WA. If you have never dealt with state to state move, it’s definitely a challenge. It was great to have help of guys from Cross Country by your side. They all proved themselves as great professionals who were able to provide advice regarding every aspect of the move! I enjoyed our interaction a lot, even considering the fact of moving being stressful. One of the reps called after the delivery was made and asked how everything went. Definitely couldn’t complain!
