Plan It Out: Schedule Your Move Well in Advance

Mark It Down. Failure to Plan is Planning to Fail

Let’s face it. Moving is an involved, complex process that requires a great deal of planning and scheduling. There are a lot of different factors in place for a move to be successful. You have to gather all of your possessions at your old home or office, pack it all up, and formulate a plan to fit everything at the new place. Where will you pack your breakable collectibles? What about the kitchen stuff? There is much to think about.

How about scheduling the movers?

Founding father Benjamin Franklin once famously declared, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.” This concept applies as much to scheduling a moving company as it does to anything else, as you must plan and schedule your move well in advance. Movers have many clients, and they have the logistics of a move to consider with each one. You cannot just pick up the phone on the day of your move and expect the movers to be there.

As much as we at Clinton’s Transfer & Storage, Inc., pride ourselves on serving every need our clients may have, we cannot immediately be there just when you decide you want to move. Our team wants to handle every issue and make the moving experience as easy and pleasurable as possible, for you and all of our Southwestern Virginia customers, and that takes planning on our part. So make sure to call us well in advance of your moving date.

What is the Appropriate Time Frame to Schedule a Move?

So the question then becomes, “How far out is the appropriate time to schedule movers for your move?” The answer is simple: The sooner the better, or as soon as you can. At Clinton’s Transfer & Storage, Inc., we want to help you as best as we can, and the more advance notice we receive, the better we can plan for your move.

If you desire a more concrete answer, our team at Clinton’s Transfer & Storage, Inc., sticks to the industry standard, which is six weeks ahead of the moving date. This gives us time to schedule you among other clients and make sure that you will have an outstanding moving experience.

If circumstances dictate that you need movers sooner than six weeks out, such as a sudden transfer, call our office today at (540) 552-3201. We can discuss your particular situation, and figure out how Clinton’s Transfer & Storage can help you.

Remember, Summer is Peak Moving Season

One more thing to consider as you plan your upcoming move: In which season of the year will it take place? states that there are pros and cons to moving in any season of the year. The website details that those trying to save money should choose to move in the late fall, the winter, or the early spring, and those who want to move in mild weather conditions should choose either autumn or spring.

There is no doubt about it, though. Summer is the peak season for the moving industry. From May to September, movers are very, very busy, and at Clinton’s Transfer & Storage, it is no different. We historically have a lot of clients during those summer months. If your move must take place during that season, we recommend that you call us even sooner than six weeks from the moving date. We want to help you, and we take pride in providing all of our clients with hard work and great customer service. So let us get you on the schedule as soon as possible.
