How Far in Advance Should You Book Movers?

How Far in Advance Should You Book Movers?

One of the biggest mistakes people make when they move is neglecting to hire professional movers. But how far in advance should you book movers? One week? One month? The easiest option is to book movers as soon as you know you’re going to move. It’s one thing you can mark off your checklist, and you can guarantee you’ll work with the company of your choice. Here are the best times to schedule a move.

You Can Never Book Too Soon

The sooner you book your move, the better chance you’ll have at scheduling the best movers in town. You don’t want to be limited to a specific move date. Moving companies only have a specific number of slots they can fill per day. The earlier you call to book your move, the more likely you will get the day and time you desire.

Local Moves

If you are moving within your area, you can usually book local movers within one or two months of the big day. In many cases, you may not know that you are moving until a month before it happens. For instance, if you switch apartments, you’ll sign a lease and have a short period to move. If this is the case, it’s best to book the movers as soon as you can.

Intrastate Moves

Moving to a new city within the same state will likely take an entire day. You should schedule movers at least two months prior to your intrastate move to make sure the company of your choice has room to accommodate your schedule.

Interstate Moves

The farther you move, the better quality of care you’ll require for your items. Not all moving companies are willing to go into neighboring states. You need New York interstate movers who are willing to take your things across state lines. Companies that are willing to go the extra mile book up fast, so you should plan accordingly.

International Moves

When possible, book a company for your international move at least six months ahead in advance. Just like with other types of moves, you want to ensure you get to use the first company of your choice. Moving overseas is more complicated than domestic relocation, and your movers will need extra time to prepare.

If you’re not sure how far in advance you should book movers, remember that it’s always best to do it as soon as you know you are moving. You can’t schedule your move too early. Make sure you get a chance to work with the best when you contact Simply Moving. Contact us today for a quote.

Great group of MOVERS.

The movers arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule, when it was cold and rainy. I wasn’t able to pack everything since my mother had passed away a few days before my move. They made me feel safe and helped pack things gently and quickly. They were patient and very positive and compassionate. They were too notch. Highly recommend their services.

Dear Stefan, I want to tell the public how wonderful your company has treated me. Has stored my possessions and has delivered everything with the utmost of care. Thank you will all my heart for the service you gave me and the protection you provided for all my things these years. If I had to rate your company I would give you a ten…!

P.S. when I got the delivery we thought there was an antique shelf missing but I found that behind some boxes after the truck left…So I have it all and am filled with joy…
