Our list of Kewanee's best movers is put together using a number of weighted factors, such as:
For expensive, unusual, or oversized items, it is best to proactively contact the movers and confirm that they will be able to move everything. We strongly suggest doing this well in advance, and prior to signing a contract, to be sure there are no issues on moving day. Some movers may charge an extra fee if they are moving items that are very large or require special care.
You will want to consider both cost and convenience when planning your move. Summertime tends to be when most people move, which makes moving during these months busier and more expensive.
Don't forget to also consider the weather when you move. Kewanee tends to have moderate temperatures. As a result, weather may not affect what time of year you move as much as it would in some other places — instead, you'll want to think mainly about when other people are moving near you.
You will want to book your mover about two months in advance, and begin packing four to six weeks out. For local moves, you might require less time. (Also be aware that you might need to book a national mover further out than you would a local one.)
The actual length of time you'll need on your moving day will depend on factors such as the size of your home, the traffic in Kewanee, and the weather. Kewanee tends to have about average traffic, so the length of your move might depend on the day or the week and the time of day.
