Tips for moving to the city:

  • Learn the neighborhoods, and find out which is best for you. Each of Chicago's neighborhoods offers something different - beach access, local restaurants, upbeat bar scene - so take the time to do some research and figure out which you think would fit you best. Keeping in mind travel time to the office is always a smart thing, too!
  • Find a good moving company! If you're moving into a high rise, it's best to have a moving company. If something you own doesn't fit in an elevator, it's best that you don't have to worry about how to get up 10+ flights of stairs.
