Hi, thanks for visiting! Planning a move is a time-consuming process and there are a lot of different variables that go into it, so the earlier you start, the better. For a cross country move, the recommended amount of time to start planning before your move is around two to three months, ideally.
Actually, your move planning has started when you first make the decision to move. Depending on the size of your move and the type of move, you can start preparing for your move immediately. If you are moving a one-bedroom apartment, it takes around three to four hours to pack, load and move locally. If you are moving long distance, it might take two to three weeks to deliver your belongings. Thus, depending on how big your move is, the earlier you plan, the better.
It is always good to get moving quotes in advance so that you can do thorough research on the moving companies, do a background check and pick the right mover for your upcoming move. Try to contact the moving companies at least two months in advance if you know the moving date.  This will give you ample time to check all of your options and decide on your moving budget, get rid of unwanted belongings, and decide on your packing options – whether to pack yourself or hire packers. has been providing its customers with competitive moving quotes all over the United States from the most reputed and reliable moving companies.
