    When Should You Hire Movers?

    When should you start looking to hire movers? We like to recommend to our clients to begin gathering moving estimates from local companies as soon as possible (within reason). A few factors will determine the availability of moving companies. For one, summer is always the busiest moving time of the year. If you are planning a move between May and August, we recommend starting to contact movers as soon as possible.

    Why Should You Hire Movers Early?

    Another factor that affects the availability of moving companies is the individual capacity of each company. Currently, staffing is one of the biggest limiting factors with moving company capacity. The rise of the Delta variant of COVID-19 has made staffing difficult. We, as well as all moving companies, keep the health and safety of our employees and clients as our top concern. If an employee complains of illness or tests positive for COVID-19, they are not allowed to return to work until they are well. As a consequence, companies are often shorthanded.

    Hiring a Moving Company

    We always recommend that our clients get at least 2-3 estimates from local moving companies before choosing the right team. Moving is a big ordeal and it’s important that you have full confidence in the team that you have hired. Not only are they handling your valuable belongings, but they will also be your partners in executing the move. In order to make the move as stress-free as possible, be sure that the team that you hire is professional, licensed and insured, and experienced.

    Four guys came from Park moving 2 weeks ago to move my family. Not only were they efficient and hard working, but extremely friendly and accommodating. I will absolutely be using them in the future when we get moved into our new home. We checked with several places before deciding on this company and I'm very pleased with our decision. I highly recommend Park Moving to anyone looking for moving services.
