How Booking Your Moving Company Early Cuts Out the Stress of Moving

A lot of people fear change, or are at least uncomfortable with it happening to them. We avoid change because we fear uncertainty, and moving house is one of the biggest shocks of uncertainty most people will ever be forced to face up to. Luckily, there are many ways to reduce the stress of moving – not least of which is simply making sure you book your movers (moving company) as soon as you possibly can. Allied Pickfords, specialists in local and international relocation, can quickly explain how your mental health and overall results can benefit from an early booking. Here’s some of the reasons you might want to pick up the phone the moment you decide to move, and take advantage of the many benefits of booking early.


If you value quality, book early

This might be the most important – and obvious – reason why booking early keeps stress low. As much as we might wish otherwise, the quality of moving companies and their service often varies wildly, and many operators out there operate with dubious practices outside of the auspices of bodies like FIDI. Obviously you want a reputable, professional moving service, but these tend to be booked out well in advance, especially during the summer crunch season. It follows that the earlier you can lay down a date and book, the easier time you’ll have securing your first or second choice of mover, and that can have the single biggest impact on the overall stress of your move.


It gives you license to start planning ahead

As mentioned, the reason a move is such a hotbed of stress and worry is the number of uncertain factors we have to juggle in the leadup to the event, combined with the sense of high stakes. It makes sense then that being able to pin down any details of the event and start to form a stronger plan will naturally make us feel less worried about the move.

Booking your moving company weeks or months in advance lets you know the fundamentals of your move; date, time, means. With this knowledge it’s easier to make other things concrete: how soon will your kitchen be back up and running, what will you wear to work the first day in the new house, will your beds be there by the first night? These questions are much less likely to weigh on your mind when you have firm answers.
