When is the Right Time to Move?

Another year has come and gone, and spring right around the corner. People in the DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia areas may be finding themselves asking the question, “Is it time to move?” It is common knowledge in the real estate industry that the best time to prepare for a move is during the winter months, completing household repairs and any necessary renovations or home improvements before spring comes.

Preparing your home in the winter will allow you to put it up for sale during the spring and summer months – which is, of course, the most convenient time to move. It is usually during the summer months when the kids are off from school and vacation time can be scheduled, that people try to plan a move.

BB&D Moving & Storage offers a one-stop residential and commercial moving service, also including storage facility services. Storage facility services may come in handy for many reasons. For instance, if there is a gap of time between selling your residence and moving into your new residence, your furniture and belongings can be stored safely and securely in a private storage unit.


Loading & Unloading – We move furniture, boxes, and crates from your current residence, to the moving truck, to your new residence. All boxes and crates will be placed in the correct room as labeled at your new residence.

Packing & Unpacking – We pack up your items securely and unpack them at your new residence.

Storage Facility – Our facilities are lighted and climate-controlled with around-the-clock monitored security with cameras. Short and long term storage options are available.

Cleaning, Handyman, & Junk Removal Services – We can clean, perform minor repairs, and haul junk away.

International Moving Services – We provide transit across foreign borders with trusted providers with regulations assistance.

Remember to schedule your move at least 3-6 months ahead if possible, so that you don’t run into any conflicts with the dates you want and you can secure the exact date you prefer. This will also give you enough time to work with your moving company to make sure that all of the pieces fall into place in a way that makes your move as stress-free as possible.
