When To Book Your Movers

How far in advance should you book movers? 

Once you’ve decided which moving company to use for your relocation, book your move! This also applies to booking a rental truck if you have decided to do a DIY move. Scheduling a date to have your belongings picked up is essential, and the sooner it can be done, the better. In addition to the benefits of advanced booking, such as the ability to secure a preferred pick up date, and lock in rates, you’ll also have a clear time frame in which to get everything completed.

The moving industry has high and low seasons. During the busy peak season, many moving and truck rental companies get booked very quickly, making it harder to schedule a move with a reputable company. So, what is the peak moving season? and what is the most popular month to move? The peak season is during summer, May – September. If you plan to move during these months, make sure to book your move as early as possible, especially if the move will take place in June, July or August which are the most popular months of the year for moving.  

If you need to move at short notice, work fast researching, contacting and receiving estimates from reputable moving companies. This way, you could still have a chance of securing a pick up from a moving company of your choice. Moving companies will always do what they can to assist a last minute move.
