Reputable Movers Are Hard to Come By If You Wait Until the Last Minute to Book

Get a Free Moving Estimate

    The world, it’s a changin’. Technology has cast a new light on how we operate as a society and in turn, many, if not all, businesses are expected to produce at the drop of a hat. When you think about it though, some of the best businesses out there take their time in order to ensure quality work – the local jeweler doesn’t slap together a shoddy engagement ring in five minutes, nor does the top photographer send you a completed photo album the day after your photo shoot. While many other businesses might be able to assist you instantaneously, i.e. online ordering companies, not all businesses are, or should, able to work that way.

    A good moving company hires professional, reputable employees. This means they have a core amount of employees that, in all honesty, can only do so much at one time. They can only be in one place at a time, par for the course for most human beings! 😉 As a result, if they’re booked, they’re booked. It isn’t possible to pull more quality movers out of the woodwork just because someone called at the last minute to schedule a mover.

    When should you book a mover? That’s simple, as SOON as you know you’re moving. We recommend at least 2-3 weeks out from your move date. Even if you don’t have an exact move out and move in time call a moving company, so they can begin to work with you on the process. The last thing you want to do is wait until the last minute and not find a good moving company.

    Looking to save money? Once again, book early! If you wait around you might find a reputable moving company, but chances are you will be paying more because of their availability – as with an airline, once availability goes down, prices go up.

    Don’t wait until the last minute to pack! A home filled with disorganized boxes and un-prepped rooms is in for an unpleasant day. It will take longer for the movers to maneuver around your home and move your valuables, which in turn will ramp up the price.

    Mover No Show! The answer to this is simple – hire Beltway Movers. We haven’t missed a move in over 50 years! We pride ourselves on giving our customers the best service possible. There are moving companies out there that overbook, and when moving day arrives, don’t show up for all of the scheduled moves. Talk about making your move day even more stressful. However, if you book with a professional, reputable company you won’t have to worry about a no show mover.

    All in all, just be sure to prepare! The earlier you prepare and get all of your ducks in a row, the smoother and less stressful the move process will be. Are you planning a move? If so, call Beltway Movers today at (800) 968-8348. We look forward to moving with you!

    From initial reservation to the long-term storage of our possessions to the final moving day we have been extremely pleased with the professionalism, courtesy and customer service we've experienced. This is why we return to Beltway each time.

    Bill was excellent in both estimating and explaining the move, which entailed working with multiple people and delivery points. Follow up from the office was very professional, questions and concerns were answered promptly, and paperwork was thorough and easy to understand. Beltway is clearly a team operation, and a winning one at that. I would absolutely use Beltway again, and especially commend Caesar, Rene, and crew. I chose Beltway based on the promises made, and from start to finish, they did everything they said they would, and more. The team clearly understands the moving process from both a psychological and logistical standpoint

    The staff was very helpful and quick to respond when the mover we signed a contract with failed to show up on move day. We have a large house with lots of nice furniture, glass cabinets, etc... Our crew was incredibly skilled and they managed to move our house without damage to our belongings or the properties. The crew was very professional, friendly, and fast on both ends of the move. I would use them because the same crew that loads your truck also unloads your truck and the furniture doesn't get handled an extra time switching freight carriers. I'm a very satisfied customer.
