Choosing a Moving Company

When is the best time to move?

If possible, avoid the summer months, the end of the month or the end of the year. These are the most popular times to move, and subsequently, when we have the least flexibility in terms of scheduling. However, Hilldrup Mayflower will make every effort to schedule your move to meet your needs.

When should I call a moving company?

Honestly, as soon as possible. We recommend at least four to six weeks before your move, if possible. This makes it more likely that we will be able to accommodate your move plans. However, we understand some moves come about suddenly, so even if yours is under six weeks away, give us a call and we’ll do everything we can to accommodate you.

How much will my move cost?

Every home is different, and there are a number of factors that determine the cost of a move. This is why you need a visual estimate before deciding on a moving company. We provide free in-home estimates, as well as video estimates.

If you are ready to do a survey now or in the next few hours, and your house is three bedrooms or less, we can do a video survey. If you’re interested in doing a video survey, please let us know or learn more.

What is your weight minimum for moving?

It depends whether you are moving locally or long distance:

  • If you’re moving 30 miles or less, the minimum is 4,000 lbs.
  • If you’re moving over 30 miles, the minimum is 2,100 lbs.
  • Every home is different though, so if you aren’t sure, we’re happy to do a free in-home estimate.
