When are the Best and Worst Times to Move?

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

Whatever your decisions and needs, National Van Lines will work to accommodate you and make your transition as smooth as possible.
