In the same way you schedule an appointment to go to the doctor or for car repairs, it is also important to call ahead of time and make an appointment to hire movers. Time is one of the most precious things we all have, and the moving company you hire wants to make sure you have their undivided attention to make sure the job gets done right – as quickly and efficiently as possible. This will eliminate unnecessary stress for both – you and the moving company. The biggest piece of advice we want to offer you: contact your desired moving company as soon as you know that you will be moving and have a list of a few additional companies you are interested, especially during busy season, which takes place during May – September when the weather is most suitable for moving. Within the moving-service industry, it is suggested that you book your moving company at least 8 weeks before your move date. We understand that life happens and sometimes you don’t have 2 months of notice, if that is the case, we will call to make reservations as soon as possible. Having the appointment booked for our moving date should help make the moving process a little less stressful. Booking your appointment in advance allows for you to have the opportunity for the most cost-effective price, better organization and planning, and your preferred choice of movers. If you contact a moving company a day or two before your move, don’t be surprised if you are told that the job cannot be completed. As much as we all want to help, there is a very good chance that a move is already booked, and we cannot leave one job incomplete to start another. We live by the golden rule “treat others how you want to be treated” and moving companies across the industry hope that you understand. Hopefully, we can work together to continue sharing the message that contacting your desired moving company with at least 2 months notice, before your move, is one of the first steps you should take on your journey to moving to a new location.
