When is the cheapest time to hire a state-to-state mover?

If you’re looking to save money, September to April is the best time to schedule most moves. The summer is considered peak season for the moving industry because the weather is nice and the kids are out of school. Because summer is the busiest time of the year, expect increased costs. If you need to move during the summer, book 2-3 months ahead to get a good price.

How do I know if my movers are licensed and insured?

All legitimate moving companies must have a license with their state’s Department of Transportation. Having a license with the DOT means the company has to offer some type of liability protection. If they don’t have a license with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, they cannot service relocations outside their state lines.

When is the best time to move long distance?

The best time to move long distance depends on a couple different variables. These variables include: where you live and how the weather is year round. Usually, the best weather for moving in the United States is during the spring and summer months in the United States. Yet, there are states where the weather is nice all year-round. Moving demand decreases during the winter and fall because of the colder weather and changes in precipitation. If the weather is nice during your fall and winter, schedule your move during this time. Because there is less demand to move during the fall and winter, there’s a chance for savings.

How long does a long distance move take?
  • For a studio or one bedroom apartment, expect the move to take 2 to 4 hours for labor and anywhere from 2-3 days for your items to travel to your destination.
  • For a two-bedroom house or apartment, expect the move to take 4-6 hours and anywhere from 2-3 days for your items to travel to your destination.
