Moving FAQs


There are a lot of different questions that people typically have when it comes to moving, and it’s important that you take the time to get answers. One of the biggest mistakes that you can make is to not seek out answers to these questions, because doing so will only hurt you. When it comes to moving to another place, you will need to get all of the information you can. Even if you choose to hire professionals to help you move, you will still need to educate yourself on a few key things.

How much does it cost to hire a moving company?

The total cost of your move will depend on a number of things, including the size of your residence/how much stuff you have to move, the distance of your move, and the company you choose. While you may not have much control over how much you are moving or the distance it will be going, you can select professionals that will give you a good deal. At Placide Joliet, we can help find you a moving company that will provide you with the services you need at a very reasonable price.

What are my responsibilities going to be?

While the professionals you hire for your move might take care of most everything, there are still a few things that you will need to do. You will want to make a point of cancelling any services for the address you are moving from a week prior to the move date. It’s also a good idea to make sure that all of your boxes are on the main floor of your home so that the movers can quickly and efficiently get everything into the truck on the day of the move.

Why not look for a moving company on my own?

It might seem like a good idea to just look for a moving company on your own because you’ll save some money, but you choose to do so at your own peril. The fact is that a vast majority of people who choose a moving company with help from professionals like us end up spending more than they need to for low quality services.

What is the best time to move?

Statistically speaking, over 65% of people who move choose to do so in the summer, usually June or July. This is the busy season for moving companies, so it is therefore a lot more expensive. If you want to avoid spending more than you need on your move, you should try to plan it during the offseason. The best months to move when it comes to saving yourself money is January through April, and September through December. By planning your move at the right time of year, you should have no problem staying within your budget.
