First and foremost, do not put unnecessary pressure on yourself. Every single one of us was in a situation where some things were not going according to plan. Moving is stressful already, try not to make it even more stressful by doing many things at the same time. We understand that you cannot plan every single detail when you are planning the move at a short notice, but it would be much more confusing if you would try to do several things at the same time. In order to quickly organize the most important aspects of your move, you can check some of our advice on how to get organized with 5 moving essentials.
Moving companies are aware that there are tons of reasons for planning the move on a short notice. For example:
- You changed your job and now it is required for you to move to another location
- Some circumstances in your life have changed (breaking up with the significant other, family emergency)
- Maybe your moving company canceled on you
However, last minute movers are there to help you go through this process as smoothly as possible!
We prepared 2 separate plans for you: If you have a day or two to plan everything or if you need same day movers.
- If you are moving on a short notice, but you still have a day or two to hire movers and packers, this first list is for you.
These are some of the suggestions on how to find the best moving company. These notes may come in handy when you are hiring the same day movers, but we will write about that a bit later:
- Hire a moving company that was recommended by a friend
- Rely on the reviews of other customers
- Choose top 3 companies and make a spreadsheet
- Compare the prices of the top reviewed companies
- Hire the movers for loading or unloading only
- Try to pack as much as you can
- Find the movers that are located close to you
- Call the movers a day prior to the move, just to confirm everything
Let’s revise these suggestions one at a time.
Hire a moving company that was recommended by a friend
We are sure that you have at least one friend who used professional movers for their move. It is always easier and safer to hire a referred moving company, rather than using a company that you know nothing about. Not to mention that this will also save your time, since you do not have to do the research by yourself.
Rely on the reviews of other customers
If, for some reason, you do not want to hire a referred moving company or the company that was recommended by your friend is not available at that time, we suggest you rely on the reviews of the other customers that used the services before. You can find a lot of moving companies that are dealing with last minute moves. In order to help, we included the chart where you can see where the people are searching for movers, based on the research in 2019.
Choose top 3 companies and make a spreadsheet and compare the prices of the top reviewed companies
After you revise the moving companies based on the reviews on social media, make a spreadsheet where you can compare the prices and the services they provide. It is important that they are affordable movers and that they can provide the last minute movers.
Hire the movers for loading or unloading only
This one is connected with the next suggestion – try to pack as much as you can. If you have a lot of miscellaneous items, it would be faster if you pack them prior to the move. You can hire labor only movers and they can just load and unload the truck. But, if you do not have the time to pack, you can always hire packers and movers.
