Moving can be overwhelming in Denver. As you keep emptying drawers and closets, there will be moments when it will feel as though there is no end in sight. Executing a successful move requires planning and a budget. If you want to save on moving costs, the best time of year to hire a moving company is from late September to April. This window of time avoids peak moving season which coincides with summer, as well as the high demand for movers in the fall, which lasts till early September.
Planning ahead is highly recommended in order to avoid any added stress to your moving experience. Make sure you have all the materials you need, make a packing list, and create a system before you start packing. Here are some items you’ll need to get started.
- Bubble wrap
- Packing List
Before you start packing anything, create a system. Number each box you pack and transcribe the contents of the box to a written list. These small details can save you loads of time and frustration once you’re unpacking and organizing your new home.
A professional moving company will be able to provide you with all the necessary packing supplies at a reasonable cost. Save time by packing absolutely everything that is not essential to your daily living needs, ahead of time.
The relocation distance will, amongst other factors, determine how far ahead you should start planning your move. The further away you are moving, the earlier you’ll have to start working on your move. Planning a cross-country move will require more time and steps than planning a move across town. There are many extra details to consider, such as paperwork, logistics to coordinate, and tasks to complete when moving long-distance. Longer moves are quite complicated so it is advisable to schedule well in advance, 2 months, minimum, prior to the actual moving date.
The bigger your household, the more furniture, and personal belongings you have, and the longer it will take to prepare your move. The time of year you plan your move will also impact your schedule. If you’re moving during peak season (from May to September), it is advisable to plan your relocation a good three to four months in advance, since moving services are in high demand during this period of the year.
