If planning a move have you gotten any paying quotes yet? There are a number of things that will either increase or lower your move price.
The first variable is your ‘moving day’ the day you are moving on. Moving during the week versus moving over the weekend and which you pick could mean the difference in a cheaper move or a very expensive movie. A weekday move is less expensive because this is not a busy time as compared to prime moving days of busy time Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
End of month
You also need to study the time of the month. The busy times are the end of the month. You need to avoid these days because leases expire at the end of the month and these days are some of the busiest times for moving companies. If you can afford to be flexible with your date pick:
- Middle of the week
- Middle of a month
- Not on the weekends or end of months
Packing is another area where you should use professionals. An experienced packer will ensure your –
- Framed paintings
- Fine china

If you are doing your own packing make certain you secure materials from the company that is moving you. By using packing materials that professional movers use – it will bring you as close as possible to a safe trip for your fragile items.
