Long-distance moving can take a toll on the strongest. The stresses of relocating to a new city, canceling subscriptions and starting a new job can be a lot. Don’t wait for the last minute to reserve your moving date. In the grand scheme of things, it may not seem important, but it is an essential part of a smooth relocation. In this article, we will provide information on how much advance notice do movers need.

Before you begin your search for a moving company make sure you do some research. There are a lot of shady characters in the moving industry and doing business with one of them will add even more to the stress of moving.

Best Moving CompaniesMOVING DURING WINTER TIME (OFF-SEASON)

If you’re planning a move during the winter time, you will be able to reserve a moving date quite quickly. Winter time is offseason for movers which means their loads are light and looking for business. You will also be able to save some money as opposed to moving during the summer time. So how much advance notice do movers need? I would suggest a 4-week minimum notice would suffice. The moving company won’t require a 4-week notice, but this will allow you time to get things in order. There’s a lot that goes into a move so the more time you have for planning, the better.

MOVING DURING SUMMER (PEAK-SEASON)

Relocating during the busy season would require more advance notice then during the winter time. Peak season for moving offically starts on May 15th and lasts until September. The summertime makes up for 75% of moves annually so things can get a bit hectic for both the mover and the customer. With that said I would recommend booking your move a min of 8 weeks in advance. Check out our moving checklist to help you plan for your move.
The advance notice will give the movers enough time to squeeze you in their schedule and give you enough time to plan and prepare. Worrying about reserving a move date should be the last thing on your mind so prep and prep early. Check out this article on items movers won’t move.
