Moving 101: Know When to Book the Services of a Removals Company

When you're reserving movie tickets for a blockbuster Hollywood hit, you need to do it early if you want to have good seats. The same thing holds true when it comes to taking advantage of certain services, such as when you're moving. The earlier that you book the services of a removals company, the better the rates.

When is Your Move Date?

To give you an idea about when you need to book the services of a removals company so you can enjoy good rates, here's a quick guide.
•    Within the next two weeks.
There are some career or life changes which will require you to move within a brief span of time. If you need to do it within the next couple of weeks, for example, find a removals company right now! This is especially true if you live in a busy city where people move all the time - the calendar of the few removals companies which service the area might already be fully booked.

•    Next month.
Once you confirm the date of your move and you find out that it is a month away, you can already start looking for a removals company. Again, it pays to book their services earlier so that you can take advantage of great rates.

•    Within the next few months.
There are some removals companies which consider winter as the off-peak season for their business. This means that those who plan to move for the next summer or spring may book their services now, while the rates are at an all-time low.

•    About half a year from now.
Planning a move within half a year or a full year from now will give you greater leeway. Not only can you take advantage of great rates from removals companies, but you can also plan the date of the move in such a way that your kids can finish the school year first while also having enough time to settle into your new home.

As you can see, there's an ideal timeframe to book the services or a removals company based on how far into the future you need to move.
