Pros and cons of moving on a work day


You have chosen a new apartment, and you are ready to move. What an exciting time! The only thing left is to choose a particular day when the moving truck will pick up your belongings. When planning a move, you should always think about fine details and specifics of the relocation. It’s not always as simple as just calling the moving company and booking them. You need to consider the pros and cons of moving on a work day. Moving and storage Brooklyn is here to help.

Moving on a work day

The best time to move is when professional movers are working with fewer customers. This is usually in the middle of the week. Some may find this challenging. Having to relocate on a weekday might be too difficult, due to personal schedules, etc. Before you rent a moving truck Brooklyn, consider the following:

  • are you relocating locally or internationally
  • how will your schedule be affected if you are moving on a work day
  • can you be flexible and afford different rates
Packing and moving on a work day
If you are looking to relocate, make sure you have a plan in place

What are the pros?

There is a big advantage to moving on a work day if you are moving locally. While the kids are in school, you can get the job done. Moving while your child is at daycare is even more advantageous. Another pro is the lower cost of the move. There are different rates for different days of the week for professional moving companies. Office movers in Brooklyn try to keep the same rates, so if you need someone trustworthy to attend to your belongings, make sure to contact us.

Saturday is a day when everyone is out, causing high traffic congestion and a longer moving time. Whenever possible, moving on a weekday between morning and evening rush hours, when most people are at work, minimizes distractions and delays. It is by far less stressful.

Moving on a work day has its pros and cons, you have to plan with care if you want your relocation to go smoothly

Also, you can run into some challenges when moving to a new home. One of the biggest difficulties in a new home is when something isn’t properly working once you settle in. During the week, you are more likely to get someone out to fix something that doesn’t work than on a weekend.

Cons of moving on a work day

One of the biggest cons of moving on a work day is that some people can’t get a day off work. Also, if you are moving internationally, it might be difficult to pull the kids out of school. Moving during a weekday will severely limit your options if you rely on friends or family for assistance. However, this should not be a problem if you use a professional moving service.

If you are moving your office, you will also be disrupting the business. If you do decide that this is the best way to go, commercial moving companies NYC offers will be at your disposal. Create a list of pros and cons that are specific for you or your business, and make a decision based on it. Moving on a work day is definitely one of the options.

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.
