Setting a moving date is very crucial to your whole moving process in many aspects. You shouldn’t randomly choose a date to move. In fact, here are a few factors to consider when you are deciding when to relocate!
Cost: How much you will pay for your relocation is in direct correlation with the date you choose to move. There are certain days that will be costlier than others due to a peak in demands for movers. Certain days such as holidays, weekends, summer months, and beginning and end of months is when moving companies will be at their busiest and cost significantly more than normal rates. Moving during the winter is the most ideal if you wish to avoid paying more for your move.
Your Needs: Along with forming your moving budget, your needs are the most important factor for choosing a moving date. For instance, some questions that you might help you decide when it’s the right time to move is, do you want to start a new job at a certain time? Or do you want to move during the summer instead or the winter? These are only a few basic questions you can ask yourself when deciding what moving period is the most convenient for you and suits your needs.
Mover Availability: Not only is a moving date important to figure out for yourself but as well the moving company you are going to use during this process. Make sure your moving company is available during the period by booking them two or three weeks in advance. You may be able to find movers last minute but you would have to accommodate your move to when the movers are available and you might not be satisfied with the service you receive. It’s best to not wait last minute to book a moving date with a moving company.
Rent: If you are renting your place, make sure to check your contract before setting your moving date. You may need to contact your landlord and ask for permission to leave your apartment or you might need to send a month’s notice before leaving. Rental contracts usually have set period of time where you hold the lease so make sure to have your apartment situation squared away with your landlord before setting a moving date.
Essentially planning is the key to having an organized move. Now with these few factors, you will be able to plan when to move more efficiently!
