FAQ to Help You Plan Your Upcoming Move

Moving can take a lot of work, but there are a few things that you can do to optimize your efforts and maximize your results. Here are some of the frequently asked questions that we hear from our customers. The answers to these questions can help you plan your upcoming move:

When Should I Schedule My Move?

You can move anytime during the year, but you might consider moving during a slow time if you have the flexibility in your schedule. For example, the beginning and end of each month are often busy for professional movers since people are moving when their lease is up. Weekends are typically busier than weekdays. Planning your move during the slower times will increase the amount of time that you have the movers to help. Plus, sometimes you can save money on the moving services.

When Should I Book the Movers?

The sooner, the better! If you have specific dates for your move, then it is best to schedule the movers as soon as possible. Getting on their calendar before other people book their move will give you the top priority. You can pick the days and times that will work for your family, without worrying about working around other people who are already on the calendar.

Is it Necessary to Hire a Moving Company?

Some homeowners are tempted to use a do-it-yourself approach for their upcoming move. They don’t want to spend money on professional moving services. But, you need to consider the opportunity cost of time that will be spent moving if you don’t have an expert team to help. Plus, you will still need to spend money on the moving supplies and a truck or trailer. After you compare the costs and the effort that will be expended, you will see that it is worth the expense to hire a professional moving company.

What Should I do Before the Movers Show Up?

If you are hiring movers that are loading and unloading the truck, then you need to make sure that your personal belongings are already boxed before the movers come to your house.
