When Should I Begin Contacting Moving Companies for Estimates?
A good rule of thumb is to start looking at different moving companies once you know the date of your moving day. Ideally, you’ll start looking around about eight weeks beforehand. It’s extremely important that you don’t wait until the last minute, because if you do you’ll find your choices are severely limited. And if you are able to find someone on that short of notice you’ll be at a serious disadvantage. You could be looking at a company that provides shoddy service, doesn’t have licensed, insured professionals, or even worse. Have an estimator with a respected, trustworthy company come to your home and survey all of your goods that are to be shipped. If you are moving because of your job and your employer will be paying for your relocation expenses, you may want to get started gathering estimates even farther out of moving day. The reason is your company may need more time in order to approve a company’s estimate.
