Step One, Turning on UtilitiesPrepare For Your Movers and Helpers

First thing on taking occupancy of your new home and before sending movers in - you'll want to get the lights turned on. U City’s local utility providers are Ameren Corporation, Charter, MSD, Missouri American Water, and Spire (formerly Laclede Gas).

Charter Cable (800) 211-4450 
Spire (formerly Laclede Gas) (314) 995-4800
MSD (314) 768-6260
MO American Water (866) 430-0820
Ameren (314) 342-1000

After moving in you may have a large number of moving boxes (we provide new and used boxes here if you need them). Unless using a dumpster, U City requires all boxes to be broken down and bundled together... if they are filled with rubbish items and left out on the curb, they will not be picked up. So make sure to dissassemble them!

Code Regulations and Permits

U City’s wonderful thoroughfares are home to their own one-way or parking quirks (such as through-truck taffic prohibitions on certain streets), and the city has a tighter set of regulations on movers (than say, St. Charles) when it comes to bringing trucks and trailers to the home for packing and unpacking. Here's some relevant regulations on truck parking, sizes, and exceptions.

Regulations on portable storage containers: If you need a portable storage container as part of your move, we have them available and ready for you. University City rules and permits regarding Portable Storage Containers can be found here.

Dodge will make sure you stay in the good graces of your neighbors, city, and county.
