Summer is Peak Moving Season – When to book your Move

Spring has arrived and summer is right around the corner, the two busiest times of the year to schedule a residential move. Peak season for commercial moves are during the winter months and residential moves peak during the spring, summer and fall months. Most people try to schedule their residential move during spring and summer months for a number of reasons.

The weather is warmer, the kids are getting out of school and people schedule their vacation time during these months. If you and your family fall into this category and are planning on moving this summer you will need to research moving companies and book your professional movers now:

Some helpful moving tips:

  • Investigate company & get estimates – investigate and research at least 3 different moving companies to compare estimates and check on availability. Moving scams are on the rise and these companies will over-charge for their less-than-professional services.
  • Make sure company is professional & reputable – When choosing a moving company it is also wise to check on fleet of trucks, the truck sizes and availability. Some moving scams include sending smaller trucks out which costs more in the long run, results in more trips back and forth and can also be damaging to your personal belongings. Verify the moving company is professional and insured.
  • Book your move – it is recommended to allow 4-6 weeks to book your move, so if you are moving during the prime months of June through August, you will need to book your professional movers now so that you get the dates you prefer. If you wait, you run the risk of picking a company last minute that may not be as professional or reputable.
  • Additional services are available – No matter how big or small your move is, once you have your professional moving company on-board they can also provide many additional services to assist you in your move: handyman services, junk removal, furniture recycling, storage facility services, and International moving services.

Remember to book your professional movers as soon as you have settled on a date so that you get the dates you want and can have peace of mind knowing you have the best moving company working for you and your family.
