Moving date

Moving dateAt the beginning of preparations for the move, you should start thinking about convenient moving date. For each of us, a convenient means something else. If you are moving with children, the holiday period will be definitely the best choice. Despite the fact that it is not the cheapest time to move, but your children will have enough time to say hello to old friends but also to meet new ones, and prepare to begin learning in the new school.

If you are lucky and you can freely choose your preferred moving day, consider the period just after the summer holidays or late spring, when companies are not as crowded, and this results in lower prices. The cheapest rates are offered in the middle of the week, but in case when you work during the week and can’t take a vacation, you are left with a choice of weekend, however, you must take into account the higher moving costs.
