When Should I Begin Contacting Moving Companies for Free Moving Estimates?

Are you thinking about moving this year? Successfully completing a local or a long-distance move may require the help of a skilled moving and storage company.

If you haven't moved in a while, you might be wondering when to start contacting moving companies about your upcoming relocation. It's always a good idea to start looking for movers as early as possible, but for exact timing here are a few answers.

How Far Ahead of a Move Should I Start Looking for Movers?

There are multiple considerations when it comes to the timing of your search for a residential moving company. You'll want enough time to properly compare different moving companies in the Orange County area. This includes meeting with a moving expert in person and getting a moving quote.

You'll also want to consider the movers' availability. Many moving companies are booked out for weeks or months. If you start the search for a mover too late, you'll have trouble getting your desired moving date. 

To ensure you're able to get a moving and storage company for the date you plan on relocating, start your search about two to three months beforehand.

What Time of Year is Best for Finding a Mover?

Like many other contractors, the number of bookings a moving company has can vary a lot from season to season. Most people carry out their household moves in the early summer through end-of-summer. The exact month that moving requests start picking up also varies depending on the climate where the mover is located. In Orange County, March and April are when temperatures start to feel more comfortable.

Almost universally, residential customers prefer to move in the summer months after most kids have graduated from school for the year. This is around late May to early June

Naturally, this means movers are heavily booked during these months!

If you want an easier time finding a mover, consider searching for one in early spring or even in the fall after school has started up again.
