Moving to Chicago? Great choice! Chicago is a dynamic city rich in history and culture, and home to some of the country’s largest business, most prominent universities, and greatest sports teams. With our MiniMoves headquarters here, Chicago represents the heart of our national operation. Whether you’re looking for apartment movers, are shipping large items, or need general relocation services, MiniMoves is your best choice for a Chicago move.
A large portion of Chicago’s residential landscape is made up of gray stone walk up units, high rises, and single family homes. Apartment rentals are a popular option for downtown living, because it allows people to move frequently and explore new neighborhoods. Construction of condos has dramatically increased in recent years, making this another good living arrangement. MiniMoves specializes in small moves, and has experience moving in and out of apartments, high rises, and condos. The Chicagoland area is also home to temporary residents – university students and professors at Northwestern University, DePaul University, Loyola University, and the University of Illinois at Chicago. MiniMoves is a great solution for students and professors needing to transport goods, especially to and from other states.
The Windy City has so much to offer its 3 million residents and steady tourist population, from world-renowned restaurants, shops and museums to live theater, music and sports. With an abundance of activities and entertainment, and a picturesque location on Lake Michigan, it’s no wonder that so many people are moving to Chicago. For shoppers, there are the name brand stores and international designers of Magnificent Mile, the quaint shops of Oak Street, or the trendy boutiques of the Bucktown and Wicker Park neighborhoods. For the museum-goers, Museum Campus features the Shedd Aquarium, Museum of Science and Industry and Field Museum. Some of the city’s most famous tourist destinations include Grant Park (home to Buckingham Fountain and the Bean), Navy Pier and the Sears Tower. For those with a flair for the arts, there is the Art Institute and Museum of Contemporary Art…and hundreds of small galleries throughout the city.
For sports enthusiasts, Chicago really is your kind of town! You can attend Chicago sporting events year round from the longstanding rival among baseball fans between the north side Chicago Cubs and the south side Chicago White Sox, to Chicago Bears football at Soldier Field, and Chicago Bulls basketball and Chicago Blackhawks hockey at the United Center.
Chicago is made up of neighborhoods diverse in their people, culture, food and traditions. On the North Side, you’ll find college students, young professionals, and families in the neighborhoods of Lincoln Park, Wrigleyville, Lakeview, Lincoln Square, and Ravenswood. Many neighborhoods were created as a starting place for immigrant populations such as Chinatown, the Slavic and Mexican area of Pilsen, and the Ukrainian Village. The South Side of the city includes Bridgeport, Hyde Park, Washington Park and The University of Chicago.
