How do you compare local moving companies?

  • Make sure the company is able to meet your needs in terms of truck size, the locations they serve, as well as any additional services they may offer.

At Move Central, we strive to deliver a moving service that maximizes efficiency and comfort and minimizes inconvenience. Our expert movers will take the weight of your shoulders and make sure that your relocation brings you nothing but satisfaction and joy.

How far in advance should you book SD movers?

It is never too early to start planning your move to or within San Diego. This is especially important if you intend to move during summertime, as that is the most busy season for moving professionals. But even if you plan to move in the off-season, it’s still advisable to book your movers sooner rather than later.

In most cases, it’s a good idea to hire a local mover at least two months before your planned move. If you’re moving during the peak season, we recommend hiring your movers three to four months in advance.

How much do movers cost in San Diego?

The total cost of your move will depend on several different factors, including the company you choose, the size of your new home, and the moving distance. For instance, a large family moving into a large home in the far end of the city will naturally pay more for a moving service than a couple moving into a studio apartment only a couple of blocks away.

What are the benefits of packing services?

For many people, the packing and unpacking process is the most tedious part of moving. That is why relying on skilled San Diego packers in addition to the standard moving services is the best way to ensure a smooth move. Here’s how professional packers can help:

  • They will pack your belongings expertly and efficiently, saving you substantial time and effort.
  • They will use high-quality packing materials to protect your belongings during the move.
  • Expert packers are experienced in handling fragile items with care and will know just how to pack your belongings for maximum safety.
  • Move Central movers and packers can label your items to make sure they end up in the right room when they reach your new home.

Do movers and packers pack everything?

Before you decide on a San Diego movers company, you should know exactly what to expect from your movers in terms of the packing services they offer. In general, professional packers won’t attempt to distinguish between trash and the items you want packed, so you should make sure to prepare for their arrival by throwing out any unnecessary items from your home.

Do movers pack clothes?

If you want your movers to pack your laundry, you should make sure that all clothes are clean and clearly visible. They won’t check your washers and dryers for clothes, so make sure to empty them before your movers arrive.

How do I store my belongings for moving?
