When to Start Looking for a Moving Company

A common question from people moving is how far in advance they should start looking for movers in NYC. The general rule is the sooner the better, but in reality the key time to book a moving company is six to eight weeks before your move. The reasons to book early include better prices, and a higher chance that you will be able to reserve the tucks and tools you need from the company you choose.

For most moves you do not want to book your moving company too far in advance. Waiting gives you more time to compare quotes and nail down the details of your move. Most New York moving and storage companies are filling their bookings about a month and a half in advance, which is probably when you will get the best deal. You can definitely contact a moving company and get quotes further than two months in advance, but unless you have a good reason for reserving early it may be better to use that extra time planning out your move before hiring the moving company you will go with. Times to reserve earlier than eight weeks in advance include if you are moving long distance during the summer or on holidays, if you have a very inflexible schedule, and if you have an overly complex moving situation.

Unfortunately, booking late is a much bigger problem than booking early. After the six week mark you run the risk of not being able to rent the correct size vehicle to move your home, or not being able to get the Brooklyn movers you want on the best day for you. You may end up paying more for a larger truck than you need. If you rent a smaller truck then you pay more for gasoline for multiple trips. Also, packing services may be limited as your moving date approaches. If you have to book late try to be flexible with your dates and times. Ask the moving company when they can fit you in and they might have a last minute opening.

When choosing a moving company communication is key. While some companies prefer earlier bookings, others will gladly accommodate last-minute emergencies. Open a dialogue with a few moving companies as soon as you know your moving date, and find one that you can trust. That will almost always give you the best deal.
