Answer by alexzehn (Alex Z.)

Despite the fact that your move is local, it is better to start looking for a moving company at least one month before your planned move date.

Especially if you are planning to move in the beginning, middle or end of the month the earlier you contact the movers the bigger flexibility you will have in choosing the preferred move date. You will be surprised that during those dates many companies are fully booked, if you call in the last moment.

Also, there is a better chance to get a good price for the move. Companies know that if you still have time to shop around, and, therefore will give you more competitive prices.

By starting your search early, you have time to choose the most reputable company, by checking their records online with BBB and other related sources.
