1. How Long Does it Take to Move?

2. 3 Tips for Time Management for Your Move

a. Stop Procrastinating: Create checklists and objectives to stay motivated and on time with your deadlines.

c. Use Professional Movers: National Van Lines offers professional, friendly, and expert moving services to help make your move easier. Contact us at (844) 719-1617 for more information.

3. When are the Best and Worst Times to Move?

The best time to move is when you need to, but consider date selection for cost and availability. The busiest times for moving companies are during the summer months and at the end of each month. National Van Lines can accommodate your needs and make your transition as smooth as possible.

4. Establishing a Good Timeline for Planning Your Move

a. Consider the Size of Your Home or Business: Moving a family home may require six weeks, while a larger office or multi-family home may need an additional month.

b. Packing Considerations: Fragile items and custom crating may require more time. Hiring a professional moving company can expedite the packing process.

c. Overestimate the Time Needed: It’s better to overestimate the time needed for your move to avoid stress and ensure everything is done on time.
