Since moving is a complex and multifaceted process, it is not unusual for a person to schedule a move six to eight weeks in advance. Otherwise, if you are flexible in your schedule, then schedule a move no less than two weeks (if you are not in the peak moving season).
Also, know that you can schedule a move at any time in the future, if you are not locked into a non-refundable moving deposit. Read on to see why.
ADVANTAGES OF SCHEDULING A MOVE WELL IN ADVANCE
If you can only move on weekends or at the end of the month (both high in-demand times), or else you must have a certain date then you most certainly need to schedule a move well in advance.
Booking well in advance will assure you of having time to pack as well as dispose of unwanted items.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO SCHEDULE A MOVE?
September to April - the winter months - are good as they are the slow season for professional movers.
May to October is the busy season for professional movers (moving companies turn away at least twice as much work as they can take during this season). June 30 to August 1 have been reported as the busiest moving season.
Never schedule a move at the last moment (unless an emergency)
Avoid scheduling during national holidays
Avoid scheduling on the weekends
MORE REASONS TO CONSIDER SCHEDULING YOUR MOVE IN ADVANCE
The Size Of Your Move - Certainly if you have a large amount of belongings, it is wise to schedule a move well in advance. It stands to reason then that moving your belongings will require more time and manpower to accommodate your needs.
If you have specialty items (such as a grand piano), it will perhaps need a special transportation or moving aids to help. Even packing specialty items require certain packaging materials be located and obtained. Thus, scheduling in advance can assist your preferred mover in having enough time to work out the logistics of your particular needs.
Booking your move in advance means far less stress on you.
Following this advice can assure you that you will have peace of mind, knowing that your treasured belongings will have the proper care. Therefore, the
BEST TIME TO SCHEDULE A MOVE IS WHEN IT IS BEST FOR YOU!!
