Household Relocation Moving Services Reminder

April 11, 2024

Peak household moving season runs from April through August -it's crucial to plan ahead to ensure availability.

When assisting new faculty or staff with their moves, we recommend getting quotes at least 6 to 8 weeks in advance. To ensure the best service and rates, it's recommended to connect with one of our designated Northwestern University representatives when requesting a quote and coordinating services. Please avoid directing individuals to the general number or local branch of our preferred vendors.

For your convenience, we've compiled a set of best practices for moving household goods, which you can find in our Best Practices When Moving Household Goods (pdf format). Our preferred vendor household relocation companies, Reebie Storage & Moving (Allied Van Lines) and Wheaton-Bekins Moving, offer a comprehensive range of services, including interstate, intrastate, and international transportation, as well as storage, packing/unpacking services, supplies, equipment, and trucks.

By choosing one of our preferred vendors, you can enjoy a discount on transportation costs and the assurance that the final pricing will be based on actual costs, not exceeding the initial estimate. 

To get started, request quotes from Reebie Storage & Moving (Allied Van Lines), and/or Wheaton-Bekins Moving. For detailed information and contact details, visit our Preferred Vendor page, under Relocation Services.
