If you have any say in the matter, you should try to avoid moving during peak season—between May and September. Many people choose to relocate during this time because the weather is nice, school is out, and they have more time off work. However, prices and demand for moving companies rise during these months. To save a lot of money and give yourself more flexibility, you should start planning a pre-peak season move today.

Start Planning Early

As the summer months draw closer, you are slowly running out of time to get your move in before the prices rise, so you shouldn’t put off planning any longer! We know that it’s easy to procrastinate when you have a challenging task ahead of you, but the sooner you determine your timeline, budget, and to-do list, the more likely you are to get the job done in time.

In fact, we usually recommend that customers start planning as soon as they find out that they are going to be moving. This allows you to take your time so that you don’t have to rush and forget anything.

Get a Head Start on Packing

If you’re in a time crunch with only a month left before peak season hits, you need start sorting and packing now. You should go through every item in your home and determine which things you plan on taking with you. We encourage customers to discard, donate, or sell anything they don’t want to move so that they can save time and money.

Everything that you plan to keep should be carefully packed in appropriate boxes with labels so that your friends or professional movers can quickly load them up and transport them to their final destination. If you leave everything to be packed at the last minute, you might not be able to finish your move before May.

Choose a Team of Efficient Movers

We know that some people prefer to DIY all of their moves, so this step isn’t for them. If you know that you’re going to need help, then you need to do research quickly and find out if there are any movers available. When you select your top picks, you should ask each company about their availability and prices so that you can try to chose a company that offers affordable prices at a time that is most convenient for you.
