Believe it or not, there are peak times of year for moving and if you play your cards right you can take advantage of the slow season to save money. Moving industry professionals usually note April to September as being the busiest time of year to move.¹ That means the “slow” season is the key timeframe for you to tackle your move.
Professional movers often offer slightly lower prices for their services from October to March.
As a rule of thumb, call and schedule your move with the moving company of your choice at least two weeks in advance. If you don’t have a choice but to move during peak season, play it safe and call four weeks in advance to secure your desired day of the week and time of day. Of course, the most cost-effective means of moving is enlisting the help of friends. After they have helped lift your couch and other heavy belongings don’t forget to thank them with food and refreshments! If you are moving with a furry friend, here are some helpful tips on how to move with a pet.
