When To Book Your Moving Company


It is never an easy task to organise a house move. Even when you think that the odds are in your favour for a successful move there is always something that could and probably will go wrong. For the average person, there is just too much to consider both before the time and during the move. Before the move, you will have to think of the day leading up to the move and everything that would need to be done.

During the move, you will be worried that everything you own reaches your new home. The most accurate way to ensure that your move goes off without a hitch is to plan every aspect of your move down to the last minute. A well-organised move will almost always have a happy ending whether you make use of man and van removals in Portishead or a larger truck removal company. One of the most important questions you can ask yourself during the planning of your move is when would be the right time to book your moving company.

While there are two parts in the answer to your question we can certainly tell you that booking you moving company early is always a better option than booking them closer to your move. There are a number of amazing benefits to booking your moving company early.

  • Your moving day will be confirmed
  • Your movers and a truck will be reserved for you
  • Your movers will be highly experienced
  • The moving company you selected will arrive on time
  • By booking early you might qualify for a discount
  • You’ll have the first pick for the truck used on your moving day
  • You’ll be less stressed as the day of your move gets closer

You also need to know that there are certain times when moving companies are busier than at other times. Most people choose to move their homes in the summer months. During these months you will find that moving companies make use of a temporary labour force to keep up with the demands. By booking your move early you will be able to ensure that you get the best possible movers for your move.

Very often temporary labour movers are inexperienced and this could result in a loss on your part. Make sure that you book you move early to avoid being stuck with movers that are not sure how to go about moving your valuable household items. It is recommended that you give your moving company at least a month’s notice before the day of your move if you are planning on moving during the summer months.

If, on the other hand, you are planning to move in winter you would not need to give your movers as much notice. With only 30% or so of household moves taking place in the winter, you are almost guaranteed to get an experienced crew. But, having said this, you still need to make sure that you are not booking your movers the day before your move. To be on the safe side you should give your movers about two weeks’ notice before you move in the winter months.
