Moving Companies engaged in the transportation of household goods must obtain a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity from the Illinois Commerce Commission. They must publish and file a list of their services and prices (in a document referred to as a Tariff), and must conduct their operations in compliance with the Illinois Commercial Transportation Law, 625 ILCS 5/18c-1101 et seq., and the Household Goods Administrative Rules, 92 Ill. Adm. Code 1457.10 et seq.
In Illinois if your move is less than 35 miles, it is priced on an hourly basis. If the move is over 35 miles and falls entirely within the area covered by the counties of Cook, DuPage, Lake, McHenry, Kane, Kendall, or Will , it is still done on an hourly basis. If the move is over 35 miles, it is priced by weight and distance. Movers are required to display ILCC # on their vehicles when doing any moves within Illinois. Discounts or flat rating are not allowed on moves within Illinois except in certain very restricted geographic areas.
