Don’t worry if you are moving very last minute and didn’t get much time to arrange a removal company, some movers will still be able to help you. If you are moving during a peak time, it is best to give as much notice as possible. However, get in touch with a few removal companies to find out who is available.  

Although getting a removal company last minute shouldn’t be an issue, you should be prepared that it might be more expensive than usual. 

What if I am moving last minute?

It's wise to book a removal company well ahead to secure your desired date and time. Generally, a lead time of 4-6 weeks is recommended, especially during peak seasons. Booking early ensures you have adequate time for preparations and can also sometimes fetch you better rates. However, companies like JHB Removals might accommodate shorter notices, depending on their availability. Always plan ahead for a smoother moving experience.

Moving home is a stressful time for all. However, something that can help reduce that stress is hiring a good removal company to help you make your move go smoothly.  

Removal services can ensure that your belongings are safely transferred over to your new house, without you having to even lift a finger. Many removal services also offer professional packing and will box up and pack away all your belongings for you, leaving you with more time to get other things sorted.  

They can also do all the heavy lifting, even if you don’t get them to pack for you. This will ensure that you and your family are not injured during the move. As they are professionals, they know how to manoeuvre large furniture through doorways and down the stairs without causing any damage to the furniture itself or your home.  

They are also experts in packing your belongings into the truck in such a way that will result in less movement and therefore less damage. If you decide to use their packing services, they will have all the best materials to protect your furniture and belongings, while your goods are in transit. 

Moving house is a hectic time and it takes a lot of planning, so hiring a removal company can take away some of that stress and ensure that you are all packed up and moved out on time.

How Far in Advance to Book a Removal Company

One of the most important things you need to do when trying to get the best deal on movers is to do your research. Look at different removal companies and get a few quotes from them. This will help you determine who is the cheapest. 

To make sure you are moving as cheaply as possible you should try to avoid peak moving season which is in December and January. Try as well to avoid weekends if possible as this is when removal companies will be most booked up and in turn will raise their prices. The cheapest time to move is on a weekday such as Monday or Tuesday. As mentioned above to get the best price you will need to give as much notice to the removal company as possible. 

In an ideal world, you should give a removal company around 4-6 weeks' notice before your moving date. However, anything over 10 days should be fine. The more notice you give them the more likely you will be able to move at the desired time on your ideal day. It could also mean that their quote will be lower if you give them a lot of advanced notice.
