Moving date The day you are moving affects the cost of a moving company: During weekends and public holidays, costs are increased. Remember book the movers on a weekday, preferably on a working day. Professional movers also point out that as summer approaches, people tend to change their address. Hence an increase in the cost of a move during this season. So that the price of the mover does not break your budget too much, do not opt for these "hot" periods.
