The summer time is very busy for many moving companies. 1/3 of all moves occur in the summer, so it’s important for consumers to reserve their moves quickly to avoid missing the date and time they want. For Excalibur Moving and Storage the beginning, end, and weekends are the busiest times of the month. These tips for moving in the summer will help save you time and money.
Scheduling your move ahead of time can reduce stress and increase savings. We suggest contacting moving companies 2 – 4 weeks before your move. Professional companies usually fill up the fastest; waiting too long or getting too close to your move date will make booking a lot harder.
Questions for potential movers:
- Are they certified?
- Are there any additional fees?
- Do you offer liability insurance?
Things to watch out for:
- Make sure the company has a physical address and direct contact number
- Watch out for really low prices
- Check the company’s reviews and their website
