When you’re getting ready to move, two crucial decisions need to be made before any others: when you’re moving and who is moving you. Having the right date and the right team can make or break a move. Every relocation has its stressful moments, but when you’ve got a team you can depend on every step of the way, you can rest easier knowing your move will go smoothly.
So, what’s the key to moving success? Booking early! No matter the size or distance of your move, booking early is the one true way to get what you want, when you want it. In this blog, you’ll find helpful information to understand why booking early is so important and why you should book your move now.
Did you know that there is a peak season for moving? Just like football and fall, moving has a season of its own. An estimated 80% of all moves in the United States happen between May and July and an average of 40 million people move during this time — that means more family relocations happening than any other time! If you have a family and want to be moved during peak season, while giving yourself enough time to fully get settled before your children head to school or you start your new job, then timing is critical.
The weather is a large reason that these months are the peak season for moving. Can you imagine moving a family of five in cold temperatures? It would be miserable! Children crying, heating bills spiking, and the possibility of ice or snow making conditions dangerous for transporting boxes across a slick driveway. Choosing a comfortable, pleasant climate for your move is a consideration that you don’t want to overlook.
Why booking early is so important
Besides the obvious factors like weather and school systems, you won’t be the only one looking for these ideal dates. One of the most convincing reasons to book early is the competition!
When you’ve set your mind on a reliable, trusted team of full-service moving professionals to safely care for your family and your belongings, it can be tough to get them scheduled! You’ve heard the saying, “the good ones are always taken,” and this can be the truth when millions of people across the country are moving during the same months. Good teams are booked quickly and if you’re working with a deadline to move out of one home and into the next, you could find yourself scrambling for a reputable team at the last minute.
While, in the past, you may have only moved in the heat of the moment — boxes and tape and tears flying — it doesn’t have to be that way! When you book early, you and your family can set realistic expectations for when you want to move and take your time getting prepared.
By booking early you can hire the full-service team of your dreams who can save you time and headaches getting organized. Imagine a move where your full-service relocation team takes care of every little detail for weeks, communicating how everything will go down, every step of the way, and helping you gain some peace of mind while preparing for your move. This can be your reality!
