Most people don't move very often. So, it's challenging to set up a moving schedule that allows you time to take care of all the major and minor parts of your relocation. 

One very important task to complete is hiring a residential Rockford moving company. If you are planning on relocating with help from professionals, finding a reliable mover as soon as possible is vital.

Contact Household Movers as Early as Possible

The best move when beginning a move is to start right away. Ideally, you would want to start contacting long-distance movers at least a few months ahead of your moving date. 


Moving & storage companies can be booked out months in advance. If you want to move on your desired date, you'll need to get a moving company under contract at least two - three months before it.

You'll also want time to complete the search for a reliable household moving company in Rockford. This includes meeting with multiple moving companies and getting estimates from them for comparison. This way you can find the right team for the job, and not just the one that is available.

Some things to ask potential movers before hiring one include:

  • What kinds of moving services do you offer?
  • Are you licensed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration?
  • Do you offer moving insurance options?
  • Can you provide me with a binding estimate? How much would that estimate cost?
  • Are your employees trained and certified ProMovers?

During your consultation with a moving and storage company, you may also want to ask about a 'guaranteed delivery date.' It's frustrating to have to do without your belongings at a new home, especially after completing a long-distance move. With a set delivery date, you'll at least know when to expect your items.
