Choosing a mover can be a challenging process. E.E. Ward is here to help you with choosing a reliable mover and planning your moving for your best benefits.
It’s almost never too early to begin planning your move when possible. An early start can pay off in many ways: you can sort through your belongings at your own pace, for example. Donated used clothing and other household goods can provide a tax deduction, and you can schedule a yard sale at your convenience for the other items you no longer need.
If you can schedule your move during the “off-peak season,” from September through April when demand for moving services is lower, you may get a better price and find that movers can be more flexible in their pickup and delivery dates. If you do need to move during the summer, try to schedule it mid-month and/or mid-week, since the busiest times for movers are weekends and the end of the month; which may also mean a lower price and crews that are fresher.
Once you’re able to provide a date, it’s time to start shopping for movers. This is the single most important decision you’ll make — not only because you want the best service, but also to avoid fly-by-nights who will do their best to fool you into thinking they are legitimate. These shady characters often hide behind very professional-looking websites, so it’s critical to make sure you know who you’re dealing with.
We strongly recommend choosing movers among the ProMovers members.
