If there is a choice, most moving companies suggest you select a time other than summer, the end of the month or the end-of-year holidays.  The heaviest demands are placed on trucks, equipment and personnel during these periods.  However, we believe you should move when it is most convenient for you.  Factors involved in this decision may include:

  • Closing date on home sale or purchase
  • Apartment lease terms
  • School schedules
  • New job requirements
  • Transit time and travel plans

If the move can be scheduled for a time when trucks and trained personnel are more readily available, we’ll be better able to meet your preferred schedule.

Everything was absolutely perfect – so easy that all day on moving day I just sat at my sewing machine and my husband napped on the floor beside me. We treated the driver and crew to lunch after the move-in. They were so fun to spend time with.
