How Far in Advance Should You Book Movers?

Many people make the mistake of thinking they don’t need to book movers in advance. This is partially because movers rarely give any refund guarantees, so if you have to cancel your moving date at the last minute, you may not get your money back. However, you should always plan several weeks in advance if you want your move to go smoothly. 

Moving can be stressful and expensive, which is why you need to book as far in advance as possible. If you’re unsure how much time will work for your needs, a few options are available from our site’s estimator tool.

Look at your anticipated move-in date to determine when to make reservations for the movers. It’s preferable to hire a moving company at least two months before your move-in date if you’re moving locally. People tend to relocate mainly during summer, so if you are planning to move during summer, we recommend booking movers more than two months in advance. 

Why Booking Movers in Advance Is the Smart Move

If you’re moving to a new place, you want to do everything possible to make it go as smoothly as possible. One of the easiest and smartest ways to do that is to pre-book your movers because it’s cheaper and guarantees your move will happen on time.

It might seem like a lot of work up front, but when all the moving day fuss is over, you will have time to unpack and enjoy settling in at your new place without worrying about loading up boxes or getting the furniture back into its proper places.

Why Should You Hire a Moving Company Far in Advance?

If you’re packing up your house and preparing to move, it might feel like there’s plenty of time to hire a company to help. But hiring a moving company is something you should do well in advance—and here’s why.

The first reason is that the cost of hiring a moving company increases with the demand for their services. So if you wait too long and there are no companies left, you’ll pay more for the service. 

Another reason it’s better to hire early is so that you can have your top choice of movers. You want the best movers possible so that none of your items are damaged and they arrive safely at your new home. Finding a moving company and hiring them shouldn’t be taken lightly. If you’re not careful, you could end up hiring a company that doesn’t meet your needs or one that cuts corners to save money.
