When it comes to moving in together these tips from the Chicago moving experts at Advantage can help you combine two households.

Making the decision to move in together is not one that most people take lightly. Along with the personal – emotional side of the decision, comes the need to come to successfully combine two households into one. Choosing the right Chicago moving company to help you with your move is a good start. Our experts here at Advantage offer these tips to help your move go smoothly.

There’s No Place Like Home

Whether you are moving in together from across town or the other side of the country, one of you will be moving into the other’s home. On top of this, if the move is the result of a long-distance relationship, a change of jobs is often involved. All of this can create a lot of stress. The experts in our Chicago moving company recommend the two of you spend a lot of time discussing the move before you make your decision.

Who’s Paying What

There’s a lot more to moving in that which couch you’re keeping. Over your first meal in your new home is the perfect time to discuss small but essential details like the bills. Will you be pooling your money, splitting the bills down the middle, or perhaps each of you taking on the responsibility of paying for certain communal bills? It can be a tough conversation, but one that needs to be had early on to avoid frustration later.

Do We Need Two of Those?

Time to get down to the nitty-gritty and start looking at everything both of you have. Do you really need two coffee makers? Sorting through everything can be challenging and take some time, but our Chicago moving company, like most, charges based on the size of the load. The more you can sell, donate or dispose of before we arrive to move your household goods, the less you will be paying to move.

Choosing the Right Moving Company

The most important thing you can do is hire the right Chicago moving company in the first place.
