How Far in Advance to Hire a Removal Company

Planning a property move can be stressful, particularly if you’re a business. There are so many things to think about, and it seems like there’s never enough time to get everything done. One of the most important decisions you’ll have to make is when to hire a removal company.

But how far in advance should you book? And what factors should you consider when making your decision? In this blog post, we’ll answer all your questions about when’s the best time to hire a removal company.

Booking in advance

Businesses should always book as far in advance as possible. But, it can be difficult to know exactly how far in advance to hire a removal company. In general, you should book a removal company 4-6 weeks before your target move date. 

This will ensure that you get the date and time you want and that So Storage has enough capacity and staff available to accommodate your move. This also gives the removal company enough time to plan and organise your move as efficiently as possible.

Watch out for busy periods

Some times of the year are busier than others for removal and storage companies. Many people move during summer, during school holidays, and at the end of the month. Therefore, if you’re moving during these times, you should try and book even earlier to avoid disappointment and ensure you get the best deal available. This is because removal companies often offer discounts for bookings made well in advance, and prices can go up as the date of your move approaches.

If your move date is flexible, it’s worth considering moving at a time when removal companies aren’t as busy. This will ensure you get a good price, and that your move is as seamless and stress-free as possible. Now you know how far in advance to hire a removal company, and what time periods to avoid, what should you do if you need to move at short notice?
