Moving Experts at Pack It Movers Say February is the Best Time to Make or Plan a Move

If you are planning a move in 2019, the experts at Pack It Movers say February can be the best month to save time and money on your move.

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- If you are planning a move in 2019, moving experts say the month of February could be the best time to make, or plan, your move.

According to the experts at Pack It Movers, a leading full-service moving company serving the San Diego, California, and Houston, Texas, areas, the month of February not only offers cooler, more comfortable temperatures for moving in southern and southwest states, it can represent substantial savings for consumers by avoiding peak moving months.

"Most people wait until spring, or summer when the kids get out of school, to plan and execute their move," said Anthony Johnson, Founder and CEO of Pack It Movers. "Costs are significantly higher to move during the peak spring and summer months and the chances of finding a reputable moving company can be pretty slim. For those reasons, we recommend that consumers planning to make a move this year, be it residential or commercial, book a credible moving company early, as much as six months in advance to save money, even if they can't make their move until later in the year."

In addition to taking advantage of the winter months' pricing and availability, Pack It Movers also cautions consumers to do some research to avoid moving fraud and ensure they are hiring a reputable moving company. Johnson offered the following tips when shopping for movers:

  • Check to make sure they are licensed and insured.
  • Check their physical address and make sure it's not a P.O. Box, or unlisted address.
  • Check their website.
  • See if they are members of American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA) and the Better Business Bureau (BBB), and if they have any complaints with these organizations.
  • See if they will come to your destination or home to give an estimate.
  • Make sure they have been in business at least 5 years.
  • Do they have their own company moving trucks? Avoid companies that use rented trucks.
  • Are you confident your sales representative will be there to help you through planning, packing and loading?
  • Do they accept payment at the end of deal and not at the beginning?

Johnson said moving or booking early in the year and following these tips will help consumers save money, avoid fraud, and choose a company with confidence to protect everything that is precious to them.
