The earlier, the better. It’s wise to give your moving company at least two week’s notice, if possible.

Additionally if your move is arranged in advance often your price will be more competitive and you will have more flexibility when choosing the date of your moving.

Whether you’re moving Locally, Interstate or overseas it is always better to have a consultant call at your home to estimate your move costs.
