Great question and welcome to Chicago!  First, congratulations on moving to Chicago!  We’ve got answers for you in our handy dandy welcome to Chicago packet. Inside you’ll find phone numbers for the gas company, electric company as well as how to get a city of Chicago Parking Permit and even contact info for my favorite handyman, veterinarian and local movers.  For utilities, we recommend calling several weeks in advance as it can take weeks to get the initial service appointment set up and nothing is worse than moving into a new home and having no electricity or TV for a few weeks!
