Chicago Cross Country Moving Company

Car Shipping Process

If you are wondering what it takes to transport your vehicle to another state, there are three steps:
STEP 1:
Find a reputable auto transport company
Hiring a company you can rely on and trust is very important.
STEP 2:
Get an exact quote
If you know the precise cost of your vehicle, you will be able to properly manage your budget, as well as not have to worry about additional charges.
STEP 3:
Avoid companies that ask for deposits
Many companies use third-party car shipping companies to do the work instead of them. The deposits they charge are the full moving costs, which, as we said, they use to earn more profits.

Car Shipping Tips

When it comes to long distance car transport, it is imperative that you do the necessary preparations to get everything ready before the auto shipping company comes. Here are some tips and tricks on how to prepare your car:
Freshly washed car before shipping with Chicago Cross Country Moving Company
Wash your Car before Shipping It
Dust and dirt may cover any damages like dents and scratches and prevent you from seeing them. If you wash your car before the car shipping, you will be aware of its condition and compare it once your vehicle is delivered.
Clean Out Everything
Your car should be empty in terms of taking out anything you could have possibly left in it. This way you won’t have your possessions like spare change all over your car seats. Do the cleaning before shipping your car.
Don’t Pull the Handbrake
Pulling the handbrake on your vehicle can cause many problems to the movers as well as a result of unwanted damage. Since your car will be taken care of by the people who have experience with nationwide auto transport, they will know how when and how to pull your handbrake.
Disable The Car Alarm Before Shipping
Not disabling your car alarm may cause for auto carrier drivers to lose focus and waste time trying to fix it. It is imperial that your vehicle is protected from any damages, which may occur if the driver loses focus.
Check Undercarriage For Leaks
You don't want your car leaking during auto transport. Check for any possible leaks the day prior, and you will prevent another huge problem that could arise. The car shipping company will refuse to ship your vehicle if there is a leak. On the other hand, you probably wouldn’t like someone else’s vehicle to leak oil on your car.
Don’t Fill the Tank
If your gas tank if full, that will affect the weight of your car which may result in you paying more for your cross country auto shipping. Plus, if anything leaks, there could be a fire hazard. You don't need gas in your car. It won't be driven.
Check Car Tire Pressure
This is a procedure that won’t cost you anything to check before the auto transport takes place. You will avoid possible damages of your tires, and you will spare your movers unnecessary stress.
Remove Excess Accessories
Don't leave anything in your vehicle that could get damaged. Make sure that your first-aid kit, spoilers or any other possessions you may have left in your vehicle are taken out. Not only can your things get damaged, but the inside of your car as well.
Lock Your Car
If you want to avoid any theft to occur, lock everything you can before you ship your car across the US.

Chicago also boasts the third largest LGBT population in the United States. Around 4 per cent of the city's population identifies as belonging to the LGBT community.
When it comes to religion, around 71 per cent of the population identifies as Christian, while around twenty two per cent claim to belong to no religion. The other seven per cent belong to other religious groups, including Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, and Hindu.
No matter where you come from, what you believe in, who you love, or what your background story is, Chicago is a city that will welcome you with arms wide open. Keep that in mind while packing for your relocation.

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.

Chicago Neighborhoods

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!
