When is the best time to move
We know as a San Diego mover that moving any time of the year is stressful but if you are flexible and organized you will not only have less anxiety but will save money on your move.
Most people think that summer is the best time to move. This may be true if you have children but summer is usually the busiest time of year in the moving industry. During the summer rates and minimums are raised. It is also the time of year that is the most difficult to get any deals or reliable commitment on delivery dates. If you are looking for very good prices, moving quotes and moving estimates November, December, January, February and March are your best choices.
The best time to move is either before a major school vacation like fall or winter break. As I mentioned above, moving in the summertime can be more costly but may be unavoidable for you and your family. The best time of year to get the best moving rate is during the fall and winter.
Prior to meeting with estimators determine how much work you are going to be putting into the moving process. Mainly are you going to do some, all or none of the packing? Do you want someone to unpack your belongings? Are you going to make arrangements for the pool table, car, piano, etc. or do you want the mover to prep and ship these items?
You should meet with at least three estimators and make sure you are comparing apples to apples. You should do this about a month prior to your move date and make a decision at least two weeks prior to your actual move.
