The busiest times for moving companies are typically during the summer months, May-September. If you are planning a move during that time you should make arrangements early.
Friday and Saturdays are big moving days so if you have flexibility in your schedule it can be easier to get a date during the week rather than a weekend.
Moving company normally charged by hours, but they will consider other conditions such as the floor of the room, the elevators in the building and the size of room. You can call a moving company and they will give you their hourly rate over the phone. It’s difficult to say exactly how long your move is going to take if the moving company hasn’t seen it. But there are averages that can be given over the phone based on square footage being moved etc.

You need to make sure animals are in their cat/dog carrier prior to the movers arriving. If your dog isn’t good around strangers please have them tied up or in their carrier. The moving company cannot transport any live animal. So no dogs, cats, fish or reptiles are allowed in the truck.
If you have young children, it is a good idea to do the move while they are in school or daycare. You will be busy with the movers and it will be difficult for you to give your child the attention he/she needs. It’s a much less stressful day for you if you children are not home on moving day.
