When are the Best and Worst Times to Move?

FAQ | Deidra Pierson

Obviously, the best time to move is when you need to move. But date selection may make a difference in the overall cost, and the availability of trucks and loading crews. The busiest times for moving companies are during the summer months, May 15 – September 15. Volume is heaviest at the end of each month. End of year holiday weeks can also be busy.

Other factors to consider include:

  • whether you want to paint or make home improvements before or after you move
  • the timing of your move relative to house closings
  • whether you can or want to move children during the school term
  • how long the family will be separated while the move is under way
