Tips for planning your moving date in the summertime
Summer is the busiest time of the year for moving companies.
Try to avoid booking your move at the beginning and the end of the summer months, including the weekends. Those are the dates that book up first with any good, reputable moving company. Ideally, you should schedule your summer move on a weekday roughly in the middle of a month. This is usually the slowest time for most moving companies. If you have to move at the beginning or the end of the month, you will need to schedule your move at least 4 to 5 weeks in advance.
Make sure you get referrals from friends, or family, word of mouth is the best way to know you are getting a reliable and reputable moving company. Most moving companies charge by the hour, to get the most accurate estimate you should have the moving company give you an estimate in person. If you have to get an estimate over the phone, make sure you prepare a detailed list of all household items you need to be moved before you make that phone call. The more detailed you are the more accurate your estimate will be.
