Kirkwood Moving CompaniesA Guide for Moving in or out of Kirkwood
Kirkwood - for those living or visiting there - is home of the pleasant sounds of church bells and a low train in the distance. It has a provides a different atmosphere than many car-reliant communities: Kirkwood Park and the downtown area provide food and entertainment within walking distance of most residents, while the award-winning school district is uniquely set up for children to walk to school.
At Dodge we are proud to be one of the mostly commonly used moving companies for moves in or out of Kirkwood.
Remember, when selecting a move-date, there’s a few days of the year you may need to schedule around, particularly Greentree Festival in the fall or the car show in June. Parades, block parties, and other activities may have your new home’s street closed! Dodge Moving can help arrange your move correctly.
Prepare For your movers: Turn on Utilities
Kirkwood has a unique utility provider: Kirkwood Electric. Unlike in Chesterfield or Maryland Heights, when moving to Kirkwood you won’t contact Ameren UE for electric service. Kirkwood Electric sponsors a number of the local events such as the 4th of July Fireworks, and their monthly statements include reminders of local events, regulations, and other happenings.
So start with Kirkwood Electric, then you’ll need to setup Kirkwood water service, sewer with MSD, gas service with Spire, and Kirkwood trash service. As a new resident you may want to sign up for Trash Talk, the City's e-newsletter about all things trash, by sending an email to Newsletters@kirkwoodmo.org.
After moving in you may have a large number of moving boxes (we provide new and used boxes here if you need them). Make sure to dissassemble them to fit the trash receptacles or sell them back to Dodge.
