Professional Moving

Washington DC is calling your name, and you’re all set to answer. While you’re still in Chicago, let our moving company be of assistance in this interstate, long-distance move. Let’s get packing!

What We Do in the Company

Long-distance moving and dealing with long-distance movers can be very draining. Relocation in itself can be stressful, but not with Born to Move’s individualized services. First, let’s get the elephant in the room out of the way. Packing. The movers from our company will come prepared with sturdy boxes and packing materials to safeguard your belongings. All you have to do is have them organized to be packed.

When you hire our professional movers from Chicago to Washington DC, they will pack up your entire home. The fragile china will be wrapped with extra care, and the gym equipment will be packed to keep other stuff safe from it. Our movers will also disassemble any furniture for easy relocation.

If you think organizing your fridge and stacking those two extra cans of beer is impressive, you haven’t seen our movers in action. All your possessions will be packed expertly into as few boxes as possible. They will then be loaded into a moving truck and transported to Washington DC. Our team will then assist you in unloading and arranging the boxes in your new home in Washington DC. Born to Move movers will even organize your furniture if you let them know where to put it.

It does help if you sketch out your preferences for where you want everything to be before our movers get to Washington DC. You can guide the movers from the get-go and have the unloading and unpacking done as soon as possible.

We also provide great, climate-controlled boxes for storage. In order to protect your fragile items, you may want to store them in a container that regulates the internal environment. The high-quality moving storage boxes provided by our firm will ensure that your furniture and other household things make it safely to your new home in Washington DC.

Not Your Average Joe Movers

When you hire our company, you’ll have access to expert movers in every aspect of the moving process. We have your back whether you’re moving from Chicago to Washington DC, or hiring movers from Washington DC to Chicago. Be it moving home or your office, long distance or local, we do it all.


Whether you’re relocating a three-bedroom apartment in Chicago or a five-bedroom home in Washington DC, the professionals at Born to Move can handle it. We’re aware that a house will include fragile items of varying degrees of importance, and we’ve come prepared to deal with that. Our moving team has been performing residential moves for so long that it has become second nature to them.


Moving an office requires careful planning. Do we need to pack and move not only the office furnishings but also the more delicate firm equipment, such as computers and industrial machinery? Our company provides packing materials and services for any scenario. In order to protect the more fragile pieces of industrial machinery, we will bring along specialized moving containers.

What Must You Do?

Watch back-to-back episodes of organizing shows on Netflix because you’re going to need it. If you don’t want to fall to your knees, frustrated and crying, you need to learn a few organizing skills. After all, you have a lot of packing, cleaning, and organizing to do before your Chicago to Washington DC movers arrive.

  • Start your purge early by separating your belongings into piles for donation and sale before packing for your move to Washington DC. Get rid of any items that are broken or damaged. It would be ridiculous to transport a damaged coffee maker from Chicago to Washington DC. If you do these things in advance, you’ll spend less time packing and save money on shipping costs.
  • Set up your new home ahead of time. Do this before deciding on a moving date from Chicago. Your new home in Washington DC needs to be prepped and cleaned for the movers’arrival. Also, contact your utility providers to schedule the connection of service to your new home. After a long day of moving, the last thing you need is to discover that the power is off.
  • You should also measure your new place to make sure all your belongings will fit. Before making a move to Washington, it is important to accurately gauge the amount of livable space available in the home. Imagine moving from Chicago to Washington DC, with your large bookshelf just to find out that your new home is too small.
  • Be sure to plan ahead of time and document your needs in your moving folder. On the day you plan to move out of your Chicago home, you should also arrange to have the utilities turned off.
  • Create a detailed inventory of your belongings. Your items are safe in our storage containers and cartons, but you should still keep track of them. Before you call our movers from Chicago to Washington DC or our movers from Washington DC to Chicago, make an inventory on paper or using a mobile app. Having peace of mind that your possessions have made it to your new home in Washington is priceless. Make sure everything is counted with our professional movers.
  • Label your boxes to segregate their contents. A simple ‘Kitchen‘ and ‘Bathroom‘ will do the trick but try to be a little more specific. ‘Kitchen-Cutlery‘ and ‘Bathroom-Toiletries‘ might do you more good while unpacking. We will only place them in their respective rooms and unpack them in Washington DC; you have to organize them as you like. If you want to be a little more thorough, take pictures of your boxes and get the extra visual aids.
  • Finally, a week before the intended moving date, give us a call. Let us know if you need our Chicago to Washington DC movers, how much stuff you need moving, and when. We will provide a cost estimate, and you’ll know that we don’t charge extra for tolls, fuel surcharges, labor hours, or miles.

Hints From the Pros

You’ve obviously made some preparations for the transfer, but have you thought of everything?

Create a moving checklist that includes subscriptions, medical records, and other services that need to be updated once you arrive in Washington DC. Cancel subscriptions for magazines you no longer read.

If you’re renting a house or an apartment in Chicago, you should check your contract to see if you need to give notice before the lease ends. Check the notice period required by your landlord.

We also suggest you plan any visits to the vet or the doctor in Chicago, including routine checks, at least a week before the move. In order to maintain your health, it is essential to find a new doctor in your new area and have your records transferred to them.

Pack a travel bag containing everything you need for the moving trip and preferably basic items you will need for your first week in Washington DC. If you’re moving with children or pets, pack a separate bag for them too. We don’t want you tearing through bathroom boxes to find a toothbrush.

The Basis of Our Pricing

The prices provided by our fully insured and licensed company don’t involve any hidden fees. Our movers will pack, stack, unpack, and set up your furniture at your new Washington house because we provide insurance against any damages.

The cost of moving is based only on the total distance traveled (in this case, between Chicago and Washington DC) and the number of items being transported. If you request additional services like storage boxes, hoisting services, or our more niche services like piano moving, you will be charged extra. This is because these services include external facilities or additional labor to be completed.

For this reason, we request you to give us all the details of your possessions, so we can plan this move on our end to make it as smooth as possible for you. We can provide you with a cost estimate. Please voice all your concerns so the prices you see are transparent.

A Final Word

As a parting shot, know that our company’s flat rates are affordable and that our estimate will fall well within your moving budget. Your moving costs will be the same whether you employ movers from Chicago to Washington DC or movers from Washington DC to Chicago; all that matters is the distance you’re covering and how much stuff you have to move.

Compared to other moving firms in the country, this is an excellent offer. We don’t expect you to take our word for it; instead, we want you to feel free to ask us questions and share your concerns so that you can choose if we’re the right movers for you.
