Residential Moving Services

Residential Moving Services

We offer residential moving services and base our estimate on the form that case managers or participants fill out to completion. We are able to offer moving services for a variety of situations.


If your client is moving out of a storage unit into a residential home, we are happy to assist with setting them up for success in their new space. These moves  typically fall under our Mini-Move flat-rate.


We’re happy to help folks move from one location to another. We serve the greater Chicagoland area, including the city of Chicago, its surrounding suburbs (Downer’s Grove, Southshore, University Park). We assign teams based on the size of space, number of flights, and amount of belongings. A larger team may be assigned to your move in order to maintain efficiency and a fair pace for your move.


In the event that clients/participants can not be physically present for their move, we are able to offer services by virtually communicating with clients. Clients should be available to communicate during the time frame scheduled for their move. This option is in the event that there is a safety concern (but the client does not need to be present), or due to distance between starting and ending location it would make sense for the participant to remain at the ending location.


We understand that some participants may be going through emergency situations as they navigate moving to safe spaces to live in through their programs. We know some of these emergency situations may require more communication or support throughout the move. We’ve worked with programs to develop safety planning through moves, and have worked to organize a team from our company that would be the most comprehensive team to be able to offer emergency support.

Please note, that not all Emergency Moves can be contactless. Depending on the situation, safety planning may be necessary to figure out how to ensure the safety of the client, and the AMTR team, in the event that a person who is doing harm is present during a move.


Our quotes typically include disassembly and assembly of furniture, most routinely this includes:

  • Metal bedframes
  • Kitchen Tables
  • Cribs
  • Sleeper Sofas

Please include in the notes if there is any excessive disassembly or assembly that would be required on moves, so we can properly plan and estimate for this labor. This includes:

  • Platform Beds
  • PAX Units
  • Large Entertainment Units
  • Loft or Bunk Beds

Please keep in mind, we do not offer disconnection or connection services, and we do not provide mounting services (we can help unmount). These are specialized services that we currently do not focus on training our teams to handle.


The reduced rate difference of all services provided to emergency moves does not require any pre-qualifications. However, at this time, no further adjustments can be made to emergency moves (outside of what we offer).


At this time, A Move to Remember is unable to offer completely sponsored moving services. We hope that in the future, we will be able to create a volunteer list, in which we can connect with volunteers, mutual aid groups, or community members interested in supporting emergency moves and clients who are in need of fully-sponsored moves. We expect that the preparation and ability to provide these will develop by 2023.
