Best Time to Plan a Move

Planning your move on a certain day or even month, when most people aren’t planning their move, can save you both time and money. By planning your move during mid-week or off-season, you will potentially have the most resources available to you in terms of moving companies, moving vehicles, and packing supplies.

The ideal time to move is when movers are least busy, as you will be able to pick the exact day and time you’d like, since their schedules may not be as full. It will also mean that you may not feel as rushed, if you pick a day that is less busy for you and your movers.


Prime Days of the Week to Move
The best days of the week to move are Monday through Thursday, because most people are planning their move for the weekends. This is especially true for do-it-yourself moves as well as renting trucks to move. The worst days to move are typically the weekends – Friday to Sunday – because most people are not working then and plan their move during those days. 

Prime Day of the Month to Move
The best days of the month to move are mid-month; on or around the 15th of the month. This may be because there are no major holidays with fewer people moving and requiring moving services, so supplies and prices will be better too. The worst day, because it is the busiest, is on the 1st of the month. This is typically when everyone else is moving, and so prices may be higher. 

Prime Month of the Year to Move
Depending on your personal goals, try to avoid having your move mid-month May to September. These are typically the busiest months of the year for moving. Scheduling your move during the fall and winter will help in obtaining the best prices possible for your move.

Remember, these are all good suggestions, depending on your schedule, and will give you a good time frame when planning your next move. For more tips or to see what we can do for you, give us a call today.
