An Experienced Kirkwood Moving CompanyMoving tips for Residential or Small Business Moves
For those living or visiting there, Kirkwood is home to the pleasant sounds of church bells and a low train in the distance. It has 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.
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 & Storage can help arrange your move correctly.
Find The Best Moving Company in Kirkwood
Dodge Moving & Storage is one of the mostly commonly used moving companies for moves in or out of St. Louis County, rather than A-Mrazek, Cord, Hazzard or All-Star Moving LLC. Our trained movers are familiar with the local homes and streets of the St. Louis area, and we can have the packing supplies, trucks, and expertise to make your household belongings move hassle-free.
Prepare For your movers: Turn on Utilities
Kirkwood has a unique utility provider: Kirkwood Electric. Unlike in Chesterfield or Maryland Heights, when moving to here you won’t contact Ameren UE for electric service. KE 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.
After electricty you’ll need to setup water service, sewer with MSD, gas service with Spire, and 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 (there’s 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.
Moving A Specialty Item
Our movers are trained to handle all your items with extreme care, and equipped with the packing supplies required to move them without breakage. Also, you are assigned a dedicated moving contact that handles your move from beginning to end, including if any damage needs to be reported and claimed - they are there to help everything run smoothly.
What Are Kirkwood Code Regulations?
K-wood has a New Resident Guide here to acquire your occupancy permit. If you are one of the growing number of work-at-home professionals and plan to operate a business here, you may need to register a business license subject to a 0.1% revenue tax. When it comes to parking moving trailers and trucks at your property (how long can that Storage Container or RV stay?), here's a link to their searchable City ordinances.
