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!

Top Rated, Highly Recommended

I hired Beltway Movers for a move from DC to Baltimore. They were very easy to communicate with and offered competitive pricing. We had a challenging move with tight spaces and multiple stairways. The moving team of Brian, JR, and Ben were awesome - they were fast, professional, and very friendly. I'd highly recommend them! They made the move easy, stress-free, and I'd even say pleasant, since they were such a pleasure to be around. Overall, I felt my money was well spent with this company!

I booked a move with Beltway Movers after some changes to my plans meant that the original company I contracted could no longer manage my move. I had a great experience! Their quoting process was easy to understand and gave me a lot of confidence in the move. Troy, Donald, and the third gentleman whose name I didn’t catch did an excellent job - they were friendly, professional, efficient, and took great care with my belongings. At the end of the day, they saved me a good amount of money off the estimate. I definitely recommend this company!

Bill Barrett and his moving team led by Brian, along with Ben, JR, and Juan, did a *phenomenal* job with our local move in DC. They were incredibly efficient, professional, and super friendly. They were complete pros and took all of the stress out of our move. Couldn't recommend them enough! Very reasonably priced, too! If another move is needed, they will absolutely be my go-to movers!
