Communication is key when you are working with your Chicago movers. Since your movers will be handling all of your belongings, you will want to make sure that they are aware of any fragile or delicate items that you may be packing into your moving truck so they can be extra careful with them. As you are preparing boxes for your Chicago movers, you will also want to inquire about any items or substances that may be prohibited in your moving truck. For the safety of your moving truck driver, certain items may not be allowed in your moving boxes. Here is an overview of some items that should not go in your moving boxes.
If you are an avid gardener, chances are that you have an assortment of gardening chemicals and fertilizers that you use on your plants. As you are packing to move, you will need to make sure that these items are not placed in your moving boxes. When exposed to high heat in the back of a moving company truck, gardening chemicals could be at risk of igniting.
As you are packing up your moving boxes, you will want to avoid packing any items that could be perishable. Perishable foods, medicines, and other items will spoil very quickly when they are not kept sealed and in a refrigerated area. If there are certain perishable items that you need to bring with you when you move, you can place them on ice and pack them in a cooler.
Rather than placing important documents, such as tax records and birth certificates, in your moving boxes, you should instead keep them with you at all times. To protect your important documents while they are being transported, you can place them in a file folder and keep them in your personal car. Other documents that should remain with you at all times include passports, drivers’ licenses, and medical information.

My move went very well. All of the people working for you were great. That includes the office staff, the movers in Downers Grove and the movers in Goodyear. The drivers and movers on both ends worked diligently, carefully and did not waste any time. They were courteous and neat.
Thank you for your wonderful service. I wish I could remember the gentlemen's names because I would tell you how wonderful each one was. I use the term gentlemen because they were. So patient and efficient. I would definitely use your services again and would recommend Hollander Moving to friends…
Moving 3 times in 2 ½ years is not something Lynn would recommend to anyone. For us, it would have been impossible without the assistance of Chris and his crews at Hollander Moving and Storage. We’ve done home-to-home, home-to-condo and condo-to-condo moves. In each situation, we found Hollander’s staff to…
Overall we were very pleased with our experience with Hollander moving. Mr. Bello, our contact in Mexico was attentive to our needs and questions. The ATI packing team was outstanding. It was a pleasure to watch them work together--a real spirit of cooperation. The morning we were leaving Mexico we…

Hollander Movers were better than excellent. My move from Park Ridge to Des Plaines went without a hitch. We even had to make a stop to pick up items from a storage locker. Nick's crew was very careful and professional and even helped with unpacking and hanging some pictures. If…
Yes, all the crew members were excellent. We would recommend you. The movers were work horses, very pleasant, and took care of all of our belongings with great care. We are waiting for a call back from Adrienne Ross about an issue. I spoke to her on Tuesday and she…
