4 Good Reasons to Schedule Your Move as Soon as Possible

Planning a relocation involves many moving parts, and it’s easy to overlook important details. But booking a date with a professional household mover shouldn’t be one of them. Instead, it’s best to start getting quotes as soon as you know you’ll be moving.

Here are four reasons to book with a professional mover now.

1. Get Your Choice of Dates

The earlier you book, the higher the probability you’ll be able to secure your preferred date with a mover. This is especially true if you’re moving during peak season from June to August, but even if you aren’t, you’ll rest knowing you can coordinate and confirm your move on the specific date you need. As it gets closer to your moving date, if you haven’t already reserved a slot with a mover, you’ll probably not have much flexibility for dates.

2. Enjoy the Best Prices

You can pick from a larger pool of available movers if you schedule your move in advance. However, when you book later, you have less room to negotiate since many dates are booked, and you may not be able to reserve a date with your preferred moving company. Additionally, some movers reward customers with a discount for early booking, which helps cut back on moving costs.

3. Research Early

Starting the moving process early is beneficial because you’ll have more time to research and obtain several quotes. Much like any other major purchase or home project, you’ll want to try to get at least three quotes. When you start your search early, you can quickly get three or more quotes and have more room to negotiate to find a mover who works with your timeline and budget. Otherwise, your relocation plans may not be compatible with the limited options.

4. Reduce Your Stress

After you book your date, you have peace of mind knowing that everything is confirmed and ready to go. You won’t have to panic over finding a mover in the weeks or days leading up to your move. You also won’t need to worry about not having the choice of movers. Once you book a date with a preferred moving company, you can focus on packing, along with the hundreds of other details you’ll need to juggle during the months and weeks leading up to your move. The less stress you have during a move, the better.

Ready to Start Planning Your Move?

Booking early is definitely to your advantage, keeping in mind that summer months and weekends are the busiest.

If you’re unsure what is considered “early,” think about the time of year you plan to move. Summer months are the busiest and most expensive, so you don’t want to leave reserving a date until the last minute. If possible, aim for at least three to four months in advance. If you can’t, that’s OK, but start ASAP once you know you’re moving. While limited, movers can sometimes accommodate last-minute moves. At other times of the year, booking one to three months in advance should give you plenty of options.
