As the third-most populous city in the United States, Chicago is the urban jewel of the Midwest. Renowned for world-class architecture, countless parks, and Midwestern charm, the Windy City is loved by visitors and locals alike (even throughout what seems to be an endless winter year after year). Some people consider Chicago to be a cleaner, more hospitable version of New York City, which perhaps contributed to it being the second-most visited city in the US in 2018. At any rate, Chicago is definitely worth exploring, and Bounce is here to watch over your things while you do so.

Chicago, Illinois, is one of America’s largest Midwestern States. It’s also one of the US’ most popular tourist locales for several reasons; Chicago is the home of several legendary sports teams, and the city is also lauded for its fine dining experiences. As of 2020, Chicago has a population size of nearly 3 million people. Unfortunately, such a large population means that Chicago experiences more crime than other American cities. Fortunately, you can keep yourself and your loved ones safe by staying informed.

Research shows that Chicago ranks 7th in the National Crime Index. A ranking of 1 refers to the most dangerous cities, and 100 refers to the safest. Chicago purportedly experiences around 115, 279 crimes annually. These statistics are further split into two categories - violent crimes and property crimes. The National Crime Index suggests that 1 in every 99 civilians may experience violent crime, and 1 in every 31 civilians may have their property damaged or stolen. Chicago’s violent Crime rate is likely much lower than property Crime due to the efforts of Chicago’s Law Enforcement agencies. Ultimately, the Chicago Police Department and your safe practices will protect you from violent crime. However, Bounce can protect your possessions while you visit Chicago.

I needed luggage storage near to Union Station in Chicago so this was as close as it gets. I was a bit put off by the neighborhood and the storefront but the gentlemen who were running the establishment were helpful with a good sense of humor at my difficulty figuring out how to run the app. I had it downloaded on my phone but didn't know how to maneuver it to show them what they wanted. This is a convenience-type of store that sells everything imaginable (and unimaginable as well) but I felt welcome and didn't have any reason to worry about my luggage. I didn't see anything that looked like a restaurant but there was a lot of snack food. I'd use them again.

Great experience at Americana Submarine in Chicago. The guys were very nice and took great care of my things. Will definitely use this service again!

Mateo Thompson

My experience at the Wheeler mansion was positive, but I wish we'd received a bit more drop-off instructions prior to arrival in Chicago. The Wheeler mansion is gated and we were not aware at first that it was okay to open the gate and go right up to the house.
