If you’re currently living by yourself, you know that solo living has its own unique sets of wins and losses that both come with living independently. Some people love it, and some people hate it, but living independently is certainly something that will make you extremely self-reliant – even if you maybe don’t want to be.
There are a ton of perks to living alone: you get to walk around in whatever clothes (or lack thereof) that you want, you can cook whatever and watch whatever you want on tv, all the time, without input from roommates and you get to decorate your space in whatever fun way you’d like! There are a couple of drawbacks to living solo, however – loneliness, not having someone around to open tight jars, and having to pay all of your utility bills on your own are some of them.
For those looking forward to living on their own, or already doing so, living alone is exciting! Preparing to move by yourself, however, maybe isn’t. So how do you make moving solo less stressful? We’ve got some great tips for you below.
The easiest way to make sure your solo move goes smoothly is by hiring the right full-service movers for the job. Movers like, say, Chicago Movers. We have all of the individualized services you’ll need, but amazing customer representatives that will make sure you’re helped and supported every step of the way.
Don’t go into a solo move with no plan. Since this is all on you, you’ll want to make sure that you’re prepared for almost anything. Make sure you start as early as possible, and thoroughly research your movers, new home, and get a start on the packing process well in advance.
Especially when moving on your own, your budget can easily be blown right through – but your moving expenses can be even worse if you don’t keep track of them at all! When creating your unique moving budget, make sure to take into account any items you think might cost you a bit extra during your move. Also, make sure to factor rin the cost of your moving company, packing materials, and upfront move in fees or the expenses you can run into during your first few days in a new place.
Since you’ll be packing and unpacking by yourself (unless you employ full service movers who also supply packing services!), you’ll have to make sure you pack efficiently and smartly to give yourself a bit of a break. Make sure to pack like with like, and don’t forget the golden rule – label, label, label!

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…
