Spring has arrived and summer is right around the corner. While peak season for commercial moves are during the winter months, 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.
These reasons include warmer weather, kids being out of school, and vacations being scheduled during these months. If you and your family fall into this category and are planning a move this summer, you will need to research moving companies and book your professional movers now.
SOME HELPFUL MOVING TIPS:
- Investigate Moving Companies & Get Estimates
Investigate and research at least 3 different moving companies to compare estimates and check 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 their fleet of trucks, 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 that the moving company is professional and insured.
- Book Your Move
It is recommended to allow between four and six 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 you can 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, just to name a few.
Don’t forget to book your professional movers as soon as you have settled on a moving date so that you get the dates you prefer and can have peace of mind, knowing you have the best moving company working for you and your family.
