Relocating Within Central Illinois with Federal Companies

While the Chicago metro area dominates northeastern Illinois with urban sprawl and internationally recognized attractions, Central Illinois is known for its many suburban towns and mid-sized cities. The central part of the state offers more space and natural beauty plus a lower cost of living, but it definitely isn’t without its own attractions like the Lincoln Home National Historic Site and Glen Oak Park in Peoria with a children’s museum, the Luthy Botanical Garden, and the Peoria Zoo.

Are you getting ready to make a big change and start a new chapter in your life? Whether you’re staying in the same town, moving to a new city in the region, or embarking on a cross-country or international adventure, Federal Companies is ready to help. An agent for Allied Van Lines, we put more than 110 years of experience to work to give you a stress-free relocation. We proudly serve residents in Bloomington, Normal, Champaign, Urbana, Peoria IL, and surrounding areas of Central IL with tailored moving solutions.

Reasons for Relocating with a Central Illinois Moving Company

Whether you’re staying in town or moving to a new city or state, you probably have big reasons for planning your move and a lot to look forward to – after you get past the stress of the move itself.

Many households that stay within the same area are moving to accommodate changes to the household, like marriage, divorce, or a new child. You might be ready to buy a house, or you’re switching apartments. Maybe you want a neighborhood with better schools, less crime, amenities you’re looking for, or an easier commute to work. You may even be ready to retire or just say goodbye to freezing winters.

If you’re leaving the region or Illinois completely, you aren’t alone. Many Illinoisans leave the state for more affordable housing, better job opportunities, and a lower cost of living, thanks to the state’s high taxes. Popular destinations include Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina, all offering affordable homes and warmer climates.

No matter where you’re heading, Federal Companies looks forward to making your transition a positive experience.

How Much Do Movers Cost in Central Illinois?

A moving company doesn’t cost as much as you may think, and a professional team can save you countless hours of hard work and worry. Because services are customizable to your needs, you can stay within budget and get as much help as you need, whether you need a team to handle the heavy items and loading or you want a full service mover to do it all.

The cost of your move depends on many factors, including the type of move (local or long distance). The only way to give you an accurate estimate is with an in-home assessment of your home and the volume and type of items you are moving. Still, it may be helpful to understand what movers consider to determine your cost:
Federal Companies proudly offers competitive, transparent rates for your peace of mind. For a local job within 35 miles, you will be quoted an hourly rate plus travel time which includes trip travel insurance. This is a higher level of coverage than most other movers who include only depreciated coverage or basic coverage at only $0.30 per pound. Long-distance moves outside the 35-mile radius have a flat rate or hourly rate depending on the move.

Questions People Ask Our Central IL Movers

Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Here are common questions we hear from our customers that may help you.
Moving companies define local and long distance moving differently and usually have different pricing structures for these moves. Generally, local moves are done same-day within the metro area (or a certain number of miles, such as 50-100), and they typically have an hourly rate. A long distance move is beyond this radius or crosses state lines. Long distance movers usually charge by distance and weight.
For a job done well, the crew will absolutely appreciate a tip, even though it is never mandatory. A common guideline you can use is 5-10% of the total cost of the job for the team to split or $5 to $10 per mover per hour.
Labor only and full service moving teams can handle all or some of the packing and even arrive with all the supplies necessary! Make sure you let the company know you want packing service when you request an estimate and book a team.
