What are we moving?



Located just southwest of Minneapolis, Kenwood is an affluent neighborhood bordered by Cedar Lake Park on the west, West Lake of the Isles on the east, Kenwood Parkway on the north and Lake of the Isles on the south. The neighborhood has plenty of open spaces, thanks to the two lakes and an array of parks, trails, and playgrounds.

Kenwood is known for its variety of colonial, Mediterranean, and crafty homes many of which are perfectly situated on the waterfront of Lake of the Isles. These palatial homes give the neighborhood a certain level of beauty and a sense of pride. This tiny neighborhood is endowed with amenities including schools, bookstores, hotels, recreational centers, and restaurants – all build with splendor.


Living in Kenwood Minneapolis (55405)

Kenwood is a true lap of luxury. The magnificence of mansions here will blow your mind. Sure, the neighborhood might have been developed in the 1800s but the affluence lives on. Expect to pay seven figures for some of the homes here even for those that date back a century. Thankfully, there are plenty of other homes ranging from $450,000 to $500,000. Houses for rent also available in Kentwood but again, the cost can be on the higher side for many individuals and families.

Residents in Kenwood enjoy huge incomes to match up the high quality of life in the neighborhood. Although a huge percentage of this income is used to pay for rent and mortgages, Kenwood residents spend part of the remaining amount shopping, eating and taking part in a host of recreational activities which is in plenty here. There are upscale grocery stores, farmers markets, diners, shopping stores, coffee outlets, bars, and grills.

Kenwood residents live both near downtown and the lake with the commute being only a couple of minutes. Even with the nearness to Downtown Minneapolis, Kenwood has an impressively low crime rate. You can walk around the neighborhood without looking over your shoulders from time to time.


Things to do in Kenwood

Kenwood’s endless shorelines make it a beehive of water activities. Both visitors and residents enjoy snowshoeing and skating when the temperatures hit the negatives and hiking and walking when the sun shines on the landscape.

If water activities don’t particularly make you tick, you can visit the Loft Literary Center or the Hennepin Center for the Arts for a play or performance or stop by any of neighborhood’s parks such as the Witch’s Hat Tower Hill Park and Minnehaha Park for a whole range of activities. The Bunker Indoor Golf Center is also an amazing spot for golf enthusiasts as the Hennepin History Museum is to history lovers—the options are endless.

Just like the famous Mary Richards from The Mary Tyler Moore Show, you will absolutely love working and living in Kenwood – especially if your economic status is good enough. With all the trails, parks, museums, art centers, good schools and state-of-the-art homes and a low crime rate, what’s not to love?

Frequently Asked Questions About Moving To Kenwood

During an in-home estimate, a salesperson will visit your home and estimate the weight and size of all of the belongings that you will be moving. They’ll also discuss move details such as dates, packing services, etc., and address any questions you may have. At the end of the visit, your salesperson will draft a customized written estimate for your review.

Yes, but how much protection you have and its cost to you depends upon the valuation coverage you select. This can be one of the most confusing aspects of moving but it is important that you understand what is being provided to you. The valuation option you choose determines the basis upon which any claim will be adjusted and the maximum liability of the carrier. The liability of a carrier for loss or damage is based upon the carrier’s tariffs, as well as federal laws and regulations that have certain limitations and exclusions. Valuation is not insurance. This is important to understand. It is the liability of the moving company. Check with the provider of your homeowner’s insurance to find out if you are covered for moving. Often you will find that you are.
Released Value
This is the most economical as there is no additional cost. However, this option
provides only minimal protection and is not sufficient coverage for most shipments. It will pay you $.60 per pound per article if lost or damaged while moving. That means a piece of furniture weighing 75 lbs would receive a settlement of $45.00. You will be asked to initial the bill of lading if you select this coverage. The only place this is applicable is if your insurance policy covers your goods for their entire value, and this would be considered supplemental coverage for your move.
Full Maximum Value Protection
This is your most comprehensive coverage. You may hear it referred to as “full replacement value” as well as “full value protection” by other van lines. If you elect to purchase full value protection, articles that are lost, damaged, or destroyed will be either repaired or replaced with like items, or a cash settlement will be made for the current market replacement value, regardless of the age of the lost or damaged item. Depreciation of the lost or damaged item is not a factor in determining replacement value when the shipment is moved under full value protection. The cost of full value protection may be subject to various deductible levels of liability that may reduce your cost. Ask your moving coordinator for the details of their specific plan.

AAA Movers enforces a 7-day cancellation policy. If any customer wishes to cancel their move, they must do so at least 7 days prior to the scheduled move date. Otherwise, the minimum amount will be charged to the authorized credit card number given by the customer at the time of scheduling the move. Any cancellation will result in forfeit of the $50.00 deposit that is required to schedule your move. Customers may reschedule their move with NO penalties if done so no less than 48 hours prior to their scheduled move time. Otherwise, the minimum penalty charge will apply.

AAA Movers can provide affordable, sturdy boxes for your move through our Budget Box Program. You can also ask local store managers for extra boxes at retail stores, grocery stores, and liquor stores, or ask friends and family. Many people keep extra boxes of varying sizes on hand that you could borrow.
