You have finally decided to hire movers for your upcoming move. You are probably wondering how far in advance you should book a mover, what information to provide and who is the best company for hiring moving services.Should You Tip Movers

If you want the most affordable rates, we recommend contacting a nearby mover at least two weeks before your move date. If you need an out-of-state or international relocation, then hiring movers 3 months in advance is recommended because it will be more difficult to find someone available on short notice.

Whether you’re hiring a moving company for the first time or hiring movers in your new location, it’s important to know what questions to ask and how far in advance to book. To help make hiring movers as easy and stress-free as possible, we’ve compiled some tips that are sure to come in handy when hiring professionals.

You’ll want to know what the best time of day is for movers to arrive, how many people will be on your moving crew and what type of equipment they will be using. You may also need a mover with specialty skills like packing fragile items or hiring an extra person for heavy furniture. The more you’re able to provide upfront about your move, the easier it’s going to make hiring professionals as well as coordinating their arrival date/time and services needed.

There are several things you’ll want to consider before hiring a mover:

– how far in advance should you book the movers?

– what information can you provide about your move?

– will there be more than one person onsite for packing and unpacking?

– do I need help with heavy furniture or fragile items, such as antiques/pianos?

Once you know these things, hiring professionals becomes easier. Keep reading this blog post if you’re interested in hiring an affordable professional mover! Bottom Line: Hiring pros means it’s going to cost some money but that doesn’t necessarily have to mean high quality service and peace of mind. With just a few key considerations up front like how far in advance to hire and what questions to ask, your move should go as smoothly as possible.

Many people ask if they should schedule movers before a home closing . The answer is yes, if you can plan that far in advance. If not, hiring movers after the closing date is just as safe and affordable.

One of the best ways to keep your move budget under control is by hiring a mover who has competitive prices without sacrificing quality service – this way, you get what you pay for!

Once again: Hiring pro-movers ensures they understand local moving requirements so there are no surprises during or after your move. In addition, professional movers are more likely to get everything loaded on the truck in a timely manner so time is not wasted.

Hiring professional movers can also help alleviate stress by minimizing packing and unpacking . If you’re hiring pro-movers, they’ll provide their own boxes as well as all necessary materials for your move which includes tape, markers and an inventory list when they leave at the end of the day. Knowing how far in advance to book your mover and what questions to ask them can help you make the right hiring decision for your next move.

    I saw the reviews of this company after I had already booked them. I was really nervous about them coming to my move. These gentlemen showed up on time and provided an excellent service. They took great care and handling all of my items … More that I packed up. They asked me questions when they had them, and genuinely made sure that I was happy with how they were stacking boxes and loading the truck. I would absolutely use this company again. The total time it took to pack up my one bedroom apartment and move 10 minutes across town and unload my items to my house, was around three hours or so. These guys rock!

    During military career, I moved 11 times in 8 years. And over moved 4 times since. So I know movers. College Dudes is one of the best. It's well run, well organized, and, you're replied to In a timely manner. And I love that they … More employ college students, which helps them make money that could possibly help them offset some of those student loans that weigh them down for YEARS after college. So by using them, not only do I get a quality, insured move, but I have a small part in helping a student achieve eventual financial freedom. Would definitely use them for my next move.

    College Dudes Help U Move was the best moving experience I have ever had. I have moved many times through the US.
    From the initial order to the final box delivered. The men showed early and we’re prepared. They performed a walk through
    … More the house. They made a quick plan and began work.
    The owner, Abraham, stopped by to ensure the move was on track. He was a delight and very professional.
    Later in the day the GM stopped in and had his men move a few items that we were leaving with the house that were too bulky for me to get my hands around and they willingly and quickly went into action.
    Moving is always stressful. It was nice having professionals that not only performed the job with speed and professionalism but the little extra help went a long way.
    Thanks again College Dudes Help U Move.

    I used College Dudes Help U Move to move things from a storage unit and secondary location to a single family residency this past week. Three guys showed up who were kind, thoughtful, and quick.
