Four Ways to Make the Most of Your “Peak Season” Move

Four Ways to Make the Most of Your “Peak Season” Move

Four Ways to Make the Most of Your “Peak Season” Move

Spring has officially sprung, the official start of summer is only a few short weeks away. This can only mean only one thing for those of us in the relocation business – it’s “peak season” for residential moves. Currently, it is estimated that 65% of all residential moves happen between May and September of each year, thus earning this period of time the moniker “peak season.”

There are many advantages to making a household move during this time – the weather is nicer, children are out of school, and most people have vacation time that they can take advantage of before, during or after their move. But, with so many people choosing to complete their household moves during this time, there are some things that you should consider when planning a “peak season” move.

To help you make the most of your move during this busy time of year, the relocation experts here at King Relocation Services have put together a list of four things you can do to make your move go as smoothly as possible:

  • 1) Run, don’t walk. Once you know that you will be relocating, start contacting moving companies right away. Don’t hesitate to get estimates from several companies, and make sure the one you choose has the resources available to serve you on your desired moving date. During this time period, movers tend to book quickly, which may leave you with limited options if you wait too long.
  • 2) Be flexible. Chances are good that your desired moving date may not be available, or could be more expensive due to high demand, especially if it is close to a major holiday such as Memorial Day, Fourth of July or Labor Day. Be open to considering other options, and be willing to slide your moving date a few days either way, if needed.
  • 3) Consider a mid-week relocation. Relocation services companies are often busier on the weekends because movers want to take advantage of time off work for local and/or short distance moves. If you can, schedule a mid-week move. As an added bonus, you may find there are cost-advantages and more resources available during this time.
  • 4) Don’t hire “rogue” movers. The “best” deal in moving, isn’t always the “right” deal. Don’t put you, or your family at risk by letting just anyone relocate your household goods. For the best move, hire a reputable relocation firm, and check online resources such as Angie’s List, Yelp and other services for referrals and reviews. Only the professionals will have the experience needed to quickly and efficiently relocate you, and your family.
