Is it too early to book a moving company?
Answer: No! The earlier you book your move the better.
If you’re planning to move in the next few months, it’s a good idea to book a moving company as soon as possible. Did you know Summer is the most popular time to move? Did you know that approximately 40 million American’s move each year according to American Community Survey data.
By booking early it will make it easier to get the date you prefer to move, and you will have your choice of professional movers!
Top reasons you should hire a moving company far in advance:
1.Your Preferred Move Date & Time
If you are looking to move on a certain day, or within a time frame it’s key to call ahead to ensure the date you need is available.
*Most professional movers will want to see the items you are moving in advance to give you an accurate quote, so be sure to give yourself enough time to get multiple moving quotes.
2.Your Choice of Professional Moving Company
With so many people moving these days, moving companies’ schedules can book up weeks or even months in advance, particularly during the summer months. Booking early improves the chances of a company having availability, as well as giving you the option to choose the right movers for you.
3.Locked in Rates
By booking in advance, most moving companies allow you to lock in your rate. At ASAP Movers once you secure your move, we offer a guaranteed binding flat rate for up to 90 days in advance. Prices always have the chance to increase depending on demand, so lock that rate in early!
4.Plenty of Time to Plan
Once you’re on a schedule, you can focus on packing, making travel plans, changing your address, and doing all the other tasks before moving day. Check out our Moving Resources page for a helpful moving checklist!
Now that you know it’s better to confirm your move early, how much notice does a moving company actually need?
With most moving companies they would prefer you to reserve your move anywhere between 1-2 months in advance, but all movers agree the early you reserve the better!
For long-distance, or out of state moves we would suggest confirming your move at least 12-15 weeks in advance that way you have a choice of preferred moving dates.
