May kicks off the busiest moving season of the year which is why it’s National Moving Month! Whether it’s moving away to college, coming home from college, or changing locations while school is out for the summer, many people use the month of May to pack up their belongings and change their address. People also find seasonal work in the summer, and some of them may be forced to relocate, if only temporarily. This makes May an ideal time to hunt for a new apartment and find a mover. Also, the weather is typically much better this time of year!

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, about one in nine people move each year. Memorial Day through Labor Day is also when houses start to sell the most. Since more houses are selling, more people are moving into those houses!

If you are planning to move this summer, start planning ahead. To celebrate National Moving Month, we’ve compiled a list of some useful tips for a stress-free move.

  1. Hire a moving company that is license and insured and has a proven track record. Look for information such as the number of years the company has been in service and the number of moves the company has completed. Here at Beltway Movers, we’ve been serving our community for over 60 years and are members of the American Moving & Storage Association, Maryland Motor Truck Association, and Virginia Movers & Warehousemen’s Association.
  2. If you close on your new home, but don’t move in right away, you may need to find out where to store your belongings during your moving transition. We realize that the likelihood of this happening is common and can cause a lot of stress which is why Beltway Movers offers to store items on our trucks overnight or for a week plus in our warehouse. And, not to worry, everything is locked up so that it remains safe and secure!
  3. Pack a bag of essentials for each family member such as medicines, toiletries, and a change of clothes. It’s especially important to keep kids occupied during the move! Keep these bags handy so you’ll have everything you need for your first night in your new home without having to dig through boxes.

Are you planning a move this summer? If so, call Beltway Movers today at (877) 959-5609. If you’d like to request a quote, you can do so via our website. We look forward to working 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!

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!

I would like to inform that both move days went extremely well. There was a lot to do in extreme heat and elevators to navigate. The leads on both day D. Anderson and Kenneth were extremely professional and listened to and addressed my concerns. The teams were also very responsive and wonderful to work with. I've moved over 20 times with the military and this is the first team who left each residence and access points as they found them. No worries you are top of my list to recommend to family and friends.
