Kansas City Movers – A. Arnold Kansas City
Some people move according to a well-planned relocation with a known-in-advance target date that often coincides with a major job change. Families with children usually try to time moves so that children don’t have to transfer schools in the middle of the academic year. Therefore, the busiest time for residential moving is usually June, July, and August. But is that the best time to move for everyone?
Overall, most people try to avoid moving in the coldest winter months and the Christmas season, so December, January, and February are lower demand times for movers and it’s possible people planning to move can negotiate better rates, but don’t count on it. The best thing is to book as far in advance as possible.

This is also a consideration, for your convenience and for rates. It is possible a mover may be booked on three successive weekends in the month you wish to move, but has the weekdays open. Obviously distance and time for the trip will come into play here, but it is possible that being flexible about your day-of-the week will help lower your rate.
Many people like to close on the last day of the month for residential real estate transactions, and people moving into a rental property like to move in on the first of the month when most leases begin, so the last week of the month and the first week of the month are generally busy. Middle of the week, middle of the month – usually – is the time when moving rates will be low. Once again, calling and booking well in advance is wise because you won’t find yourself locked out of a mover and being forced to rent a truck to do-it-yourself.
Keep in mind that if you are considering a self-move, the same general rules apply: It’s harder to get a truck at the very beginning and the very end of the month, and weekends are sometimes impossible to find an available vehicle.
