Summer months are the busiest time of the year for moving so it’s important that you act fast to schedule a professional move. Almost a third of all moves take place in the summer, peaking in June. The busiest times to move are normally near the end of the month and on weekends.

To reduce stress and ensure that you are able to book the date you want for your move, schedule your move mid-month or mid-week.  You should begin contacting moving companies at least one to two months prior to your desired move date. Reputable moving companies quickly fill their calendars, and procrastinating may result in you missing your preferred move date.

Make sure to ask moving companies for referrals and testimonials. Check out our reviews on Yelp . Marrins Mooving provides free on-site moving estimates at no obligation.  Even if you are thinking about handling the move yourself, schedule an on-site visit with us to see if hiring a professional mover may be a better option.

If you decide to go with another moving company, be sure to confirm that the mover has a federal motor carrier, or MC, number so you know your mover is a legitimate company.  Verify their status by contacting the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration , as well as The BBB to ensure their credibility.
