Everyone has gone through a move at some point in their lives, and we all know how stressful it can be. There are certain times of the year that are easier than others, and it is worthwhile checking with a good mover before making a decision. Moving companies will charge lower rates at certain times of the year, and they’ll have more resources available to make the process easier. Most people move in the warmer months (from May to September) because of school and work schedules and convenient weather.
Because more people move during the summer, moving companies are going to be busier and charging higher rates. You might be able to avoid the rush if you move during off-peak times of the year. November up until New Year’s can be ideal, because moving companies will be at their slowest. Kids are in school, and families don’t want to move during the holiday season.
You might also plan to move around the middle of the month so you can get the lowest rates. The beginning and end of each month will be the busiest times for movers, and many leases will be expiring. You should also consider moving between Monday and Thursday because most people will be doing it on the weekend when they’re off work. Moving companies will have less reservations on weekdays.

I called several moving companies but I was most comfortable with Two Small Men's reviews and got a really professional feel when I first called in. They were great to deal with and get back to you quickly on rates and availability. We needed help packing a pod and getting a two bedroom across the city. They moved everything tight but carefully and I appreciate that they used runners, blankets, foam and plastic where needed.
