Save Money Moving

June 3rd, 2008 - 8:32 AM

Timing is Everything
If you've been researching your move, you've probably found that the moving industry runs on a system of "peak" and "off-peak" days, similar to the airline industry. That just means that some days are more expensive than others. If you've got some flexibility, choose an off-peak moving day to save a little money.

Best time of year to move…
If you're not set on a summer move – consider choosing fall or winter. Since not as many people move this time of year, the moving industry is a litter slower, resulting in more competitive prices. Get a moving quote and compare.

Moving around the holidays…
If you can avoid it, try not to move around a holiday. People often try to coordinate moving plans around their children's school breaks which can keep moving equipment and drivers very busy. As a result, you'll often see higher prices around Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day.
