Start Looking for Movers Early
Good planning is an essential part of any successful move, and that includes finding a mover early in the process. You can start looking for a moving company as soon as you know when and where you’re going to move. Here’s why booking your move early is a good idea:
- More choices: The best affordable movers fill up their schedules pretty far ahead, so the earlier you can schedule your move, the more choices you’ll have available.
- Potential discounts: Many movers offer a discount for early booking because it’s easier for them to schedule jobs ahead of time.
- Greater flexibility: By planning your move early, you will be able to avoid the higher prices and lower availability of peak moving season (May through August).
Choose Cheap Full-Service Movers
If you want to save money on your move, one of the factors you should consider is time. Choosing an affordable full service moving company that will pack and wrap your items, as well as load and unload the moving truck, may cost slightly more than movers who simply load and unload, but it will save you a lot of time, stress, and worry about the safety of your possessions during the move.
Full-service movers can be found at affordable prices, especially if you book your move early.
Ask for Local Recommendations
Most people know someone who has moved using a moving service. Ask your friends, family, and coworkers about their experiences with local moving companies they have worked with previously to get an idea of the best movers. You will be able to find out actual costs as well as the moving company’s level of customer service.
Call for a Quote
Of course, the simplest and fastest way to find affordable movers is to call your local moving company directly and ask for a quote. Professional moving companies will provide you with a free moving quote that includes all fees and charges for the move, so there are no surprises on your bill once the move is complete.
