How to Move During Peak Season
Moving during the peak season of summer can be a stressful experience. With everyone trying to move during the same time frame, it can be difficult to find available moving trucks and experienced movers. However, with proper planning and preparation, moving during peak season can be a breeze. We'll provide some tips on how to move during peak season without stress.
1. Book your moving company early
The earlier you book your moving company, the better. During peak season, moving companies can get booked up quickly, leaving you with limited options. By booking early, you can secure the moving company and moving date that works best for you. Additionally, booking early can sometimes help you save money on moving costs.

2. Be flexible with your moving date
If possible, be flexible with your moving date. Moving companies may have more availability during certain weekdays, so moving on a Monday or Tuesday can be more cost-effective than moving on a Friday. At Cross Town Movers, we have been known to even make some last minute moves in emergency situations.
3. Pack in advance
Start packing as soon as you know you're moving. Packing can be a time-consuming process, so the earlier you start, the better. By packing in advance, you'll be able to avoid the last-minute rush and ensure that your belongings are properly organized and packed for the move.
4. Label boxes properly
Labeling boxes properly can save you time and stress during the move. Clearly label each box with the contents and the room it belongs in. This will help the movers know where to place each box in your new home, and it will make unpacking much easier for you. Here’s some tips on how to effectively unpack!
5. Consider hiring professional packers
If you're short on time or have a lot of fragile items to pack, consider hiring professional packers. Professional packers have the experience and expertise to pack your belongings quickly and safely, ensuring that your items arrive at your new home in one piece. At Cross Town Movers, we offer packing services!
6. Be prepared for traffic
During peak season, traffic can be heavy, especially in urban areas. Be prepared for traffic delays by allowing extra time for the move. Make sure to plan your route in advance, and consider the time of day you'll be traveling.
7. Take care of yourself
Moving can be physically and emotionally exhausting. Make sure to take care of yourself during the move by staying hydrated, eating well, and getting enough sleep. Taking care of yourself will help reduce stress and ensure that you're able to handle the move effectively.
Moving during peak season doesn't have to be stressful. By following these tips, you can reduce stress and make your move a success. At Cross Town Movers, we understand the challenges of moving during peak season and are here to help make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible.
