It’s never too early to begin planning your move. Start out by decluttering your home! Create a Trash, Donate and Keep pile for your entire home; you won’t believe how much stuff you don’t need. Donate used clothing and other household goods, which will provide a tax deduction. For other items, have a yard sale.
When should I move?
If you can move during off-peak season, from September through April, you may get a better price and find that movers can be more flexible in their pickup and delivery.
If you need to move during the busy season of summer, schedule it mid-month and/or mid-week, which may result in a lower price and fresh crews. Weekends and ends of month are busiest for movers.
Who should I look for?
We strongly recommend choosing among the approximately 3,500 companies who are AMSA members. Each one has passed our background screening with government authorities at the state or federal level, as well as with their Better Business Bureau chapter. They have also pledged to abide by and uphold the AMSA Code of Ethics. They are reputable, legitimate companies who operate under honest business practices and the law.
|Many AMSA members proudly display our logo on their website. Unfortunately, some bad guys steal our logo, so you can check our latest list of ProMovers to verify membership. Or contact us at (888) 849-2672; we’d be glad to help.|
