Did you know that a typical move takes about four weeks to plan? May through September is regarded as peak moving season with over 60% of yearly household moves occuring during this period. Many people make the mistake of waiting too long to plan their summer move and end up stuck with an undesirable moving company or worse, a fraudulent one.
The best way to avoid the headache of a last minute move is to plan your move well in advance. If you currently have your home on the market, recently sold your home, or are planning to sell it before you move into your new home, you should start planning for the move that will eventually occur. Having adequate time to plan when you will move, how long beforehand you will need to start packing and research the best moving company in your area is essential.
If you’re planning to move in the summer, you want to ensure you have enough time to find the right movers – i.e., movers who will treat you right. A-1 Moving & Storage is an authorised Atlas Van Lines agent that knows and understands how difficult relocating your family can be. Contacting us ahead of the summer rush means we have more time to plan a detailed moving strategy with you.
Early planning allows you to strategize with your moving company about who will do what. Logistics are an important part of planning a move, especially if you’re moving from one state to another. Early planning is especially crucial if you have items that will need specialized transport such as vehicles, sculptures or artwork.
Additionally, if you start your planning early and things fall into place, you may be able to move before peak season. Moving outside of peak season, during the middle of the month instead of at the end or on weekdays instead of weekends are some simple things that could reduce the amount you spend on your move.
Don’t wait until it’s too late. Start planning your move now to save on stress later. Contact the experienced professionals at A-1 Moving & Storage to help make your move this summer easier.
