The earlier the better, but no matter how short your timeline, National Van Lines will work with you to come as close as possible to your desired moving dates.

  • Six to eight weeks before the actual move date is not too early for estimators to come into your home to survey your household goods shipment.
  • Start earlier if you must submit moving estimates to your employer.
  • Four weeks before your move date, choose the mover you will use and call them immediately to confirm your booking and schedule packing, loading and delivery dates.
  • Make certain that you receive and sign an Order For Service to specify your moving dates and special requests.
  • If you already know your moving date, contact us now and a National Van Lines moving counselor will help you get started.
