Our Seattle Movers Promote Safety in National Moving Month

May 21, 2018

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 35 million Americans relocate with the help of professional movers every year. May, National Moving Month, kicks off the busiest season of the year for moving companies in Seattle: With school ending, many families take advantage of summer vacation as a time to settle into a new home.
If you’re planning a summer move, North Coast Moving & Storage wants to help you make it successful and we’ve outlined some of our best tips below to help you enjoy a smooth, seamless relocation.

Plan Early to Avoid Scammers

The majority of moves occur during the months of May through August, so it’s crucial to plan as far ahead in advance as you can. Finding a mover and booking a date as early as possible is your best chance to guarantee you receive the services you need at the time you want.

Moving companies in Seattle do book quickly for the summer season, and it’s during this time of year that scammers prey on families desperate to find available professional movers. How can you avoid being scammed out of your hard-earned money? Find a quality Seattle household mover.
