How Far in Advance to Hire Movers

Published by Webmaster

If you recently came to the conclusion that you’ll be moving in the near future, try not to panic. We understand that there are tons of different aspects to worry about when planning a move, but don’t let finding a moving company in Chicago add to your stress. Our team at Aaron Bros. Moving System, Inc. wants to take the stress out of your moving process.

Use the following as a general rule of thumb when determining when to hire movers.

Moves Within the Same City

Local moves don’t require as much planning because the logistics aren’t as complicated to figure out. In fact, you should be able to schedule a local move 1-2 weeks before your moving date, but it’s never a bad idea to plan ahead. Be mindful of the season during which you are moving as well, as the summer is a common moving season. In this case, it is best to contact a Chicago moving company 1-2 months in advance.

Out-of-State Moves

Moving from one state to another requires a bit more planning than local moves. There are fewer moving companies that tackle out-of-state moves compared to those who handle local moves. You’ll want to schedule your long-distance move at least 10-12 weeks in advance. The sooner you start figuring out logistics, the less stressed you’ll be throughout the process. 

There’s No Such Thing as Too Much Notice

If you have an upcoming move that won’t occur for a few months, even if it’s local, there’s no harm in calling us ahead of time. This allows us even more time to prepare and we will ensure that we have the right tools to make your big day a breeze. 

Allow our team to take care of your move in a timely, professional and affordable manner! To schedule a move, contact our Chicago moving company today.
