Moving Company in Denver: How Much Time Do You Need to Move?

Are you planning to move to a new home? Deciding when to move can be tricky. Instead of just picking a random date on the calendar, think about how much time you will need to prepare for the move. According to Eden’s Moving Services in Denver, here’s how much time you will need to prepare and execute a move to a new home:

Eight to Twelve Weeks

Most moving companies suggest giving yourself eight weeks to pack all of your belongings, transfer utilities to your new home, and make a move. Giving yourself eight weeks should be enough, but if you can stretch it to twelve weeks, that’s even better. A family shouldn’t have any trouble packing up and moving in eight weeks, but the extra time will allow you to get more done before moving. For example, it may not be possible to sort through all of your belongings and host a yard sale to eliminate items you no longer need if you only have eight weeks. But, with four additional weeks, this is a possibility.

Families who are only given eight weeks to move may not spend as much time calling different moving companies to find the best price, either. When time is limited, these are the tasks that are often skipped over even though they are so important. For this reason, it’s best to give yourself twelve weeks so you can do everything on your checklist instead of cutting corners to save time.

Minimum of Four Weeks

Many people are forced to move in a hurry if they are reassigned to a new job or transferring to a different school. If you don’t have the luxury of taking eight to twelve weeks to plan your move, don’t panic. In this situation, it’s recommended that you give yourself a minimum of four weeks for a move, although this is not ideal. Packing your belongings and moving to a new home in four weeks will be stressful, but it’s doable. If you have four weeks or less to plan the move, it’s best to hire professionals to help with every step of the packing and moving process to ensure it is done as quickly as possible. Learn how to decide your move-out date when moving house.

Giving yourself at least four weeks is also important if you are currently renting a home. Most landlords must be notified at least four weeks in advance if you plan on breaking your lease. If you give your landlord less than four weeks of notice, you may be charged a fee for breaking the lease at the last minute. Moving can be expensive, so try to avoid incurring any additional expenses.

Now that you know how to choose a moving date, it’s time to get in touch with the professionals. Contact Eden’s Moving Company to discuss local and long-distance moving services with our team of professionals. Call us today to learn more about our services and request a quote.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services!

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
