When should I begin contacting moving companies for estimates?

Try to provide the moving companies with as much notice as possible, especially if you are moving during the busy season. Six weeks from the actual move date is not too early for estimators to come to your home to complete an initial survey. Allow for even more time if you are obligated by your employer to submit estimates for approval. Call the mover to confirm your booking and schedule your packing, loading and delivery dates no later than four weeks from your actual load day during pea k periods (this timeframe can be shortened in the off peak season).
