When you begin planning a local, long distance or international relocation, you may have a firm idea of your moving date or you may still be unsure of the exact day. Wherever you are in the planning process, contacting professional moving companies as soon as possible is always a good idea.

How far in advance should you make the call? It depends on several factors:

·  Season

Summer is the busiest season for moving. While it’s generally advisable to call movers 4 weeks in advance for longer-distance moves, allow yourself even more time during summer. You’re more likely to get a better rate, the services you need and the moving day you want.

·  Distance

Long distance and international moves will involve far more preparation than smaller local moves, so contact your movers between 4 and 8 weeks in advance. If you’re moving within the same town, calling your Tampa movers 2 weeks before moving day will work.

·  Special Services/Requirements

If you have special or complex moving needs, it’s best to contact your movers as far ahead as you can. For example, a cellar full of vintage wine will require more time and equipment to move.
