May Means Moving Time – Tips For Successful Moving

More people move in May than any other month, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

One in eight people change their address in the course of a year, down slightly this decade compared to the previous decade. Two-thirds of moves are within in the same county. Renters are more likely to move than home owners.

The Better Business Bureau and American Moving & Storage Association offer this advice to those who are moving:

  • Check out the moving company. All interstate movers must be licensed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and are assigned a motor carrier number you can verify at www.protectyourmove.gov. Also, check out the mover’s number with the Better Business Bureau.
  • Get estimates. Only deal with movers who are willing to come to your home and offer a thorough estimate. Over-the-phone estimates are likely to be wildly wrong.
  • Know your rights as a consumer. Moving-related laws vary by state. Local law enforcement or the BBB can help consumers when moving companies fail to deliver on their promises.
