Movers

Moving is actually a very common occurrence. Did you know that more than 15 percent of the U.S. population moves in a year, according to statistics from the U.S. Bureau of the Census? People move every year for numerous different reasons. For example, to be closer to family, or for a better job, or simply for a better climate. Interestingly however, the majority of people reporting moving for reasons linked to employment, such as a new job opportunity or a job transfer. And interestingly, college graduates are more likely to move, and to move longer distances, than those with just a high school diploma. However, moving, particularly cross country moving, can be quite stressful on a family. And the stressors of moving are not just emotional, they are also financial. Therefore, when planning any kind of move it is incredibly important to do some planning.

If you are planning a move you may want to consider hiring a moving company to help. Particularly if you are planning a cross country move or a long distance, you will want to look into cross country movers or long distance movers. However, when hiring a moving company there are several things that you will want to keep in mind. First of all, keep in mind that it tends to be most expensive to move during the warmer months, approximately June through September, a time frame known as “moving season.” Therefore, hiring any kind of moving company during this time frame is likely to be more expensive. Also keep in mind that demand for movers is hire at the beginning and the end of month, and on weekends, also raising prices. If you are trying to hire long distance movers on a budget you may want to consider moving outside of these high demand time frames.

If you are really looking to cut costs, you might want to look into moving pods, which you pack yourself. These can be a cheaper option instead of long distance movers. In the pods moving process you pack the moving pods yourself, which can be a bit labor intensive. However, overall, pods are a great way to cut costs and are well worth the effort. Overall, the best way to facilitate a smooth, stress free move is to have a moving plan in place well in advance whether you are using pods or long distance movers.

    I’m so glad to see an article focusing on the DIY options for moving. So many people just immediately hire a moving company without really taking the time to explore other options.
