5 Moving Tips To Help You During Busy And Peak Periods

There are certain periods, such as from March to August, when Singaporeans prefer to move as it is the dry season. It is also the preferred moving period for families due to the long school break in June.

While time is a vital factor when planning to move, it is also often an uncontrollable factor. Moving is never easy, and moving during peak and busy periods needs adequate preparations to ensure everything goes smoothly.

In this post, we will share with you five crucial moving tips to help you move during a busy and peak period.

1. Plan for a moving date as early as possible or be flexible

During the busy and peak periods, most residential and commercial movers in Singapore will be busy. Hence, any last-minute scheduling would be nearly impossible. Since most of them will not be available on the specific day you require their service, here are a couple of things you can take note of to ensure you are able to get the moving company of your choice:

  • Move during the middle of the week if possible: Most people can move only during the weekends. Hence, the demand for moving services during the weekends is high.
  • If you are a homeowner, Contact the moving company of your choice as soon as you know you need to vacate your home.
  • If you are a renter, Contact the moving company of your choice as early as possible and be flexible regarding your move date. It is best not to leave till the last day of your lease to move.

2. Engage the moving service early

Once you have gotten down the moving date, you would want to find a moving company that can fit your schedule. The earlier you find the moving service, the higher your chances of engaging them for your preferred moving date. Many moving companies are engaged during the peak periods, and the busiest times of those months are the last week of the month and weekends.

3. Double confirm your booking with your moving company days in advance

Even though you have engaged the moving company, always double-confirm with them at least a week in advance of your moving day to avoid any potential mix-upsMistakes can happen, and either they might have double booked on their end, or you might have forgotten to make an official decision on the moving date.

4. Stay updated with your moving company

Make sure you update your company on any changes along the way so that nothing is missed. If you do not have a lot of things to move, your moving company might even have another moving job arranged after yours. Hence, keeping them updated on additional plans, such as requiring bulky items and furniture removal and disposal, ensures that they can factor in the extra time needed.

5. Be efficient with disseminating information

Time is money. The longer you take to move, the more you are spending. Hence, before engaging in any moving services, it is vital to note down what you will be moving over to your new place and what you might need to store away or dispose of and send to the moving company. The faster you disseminate such information, the easier the time the movers will have when moving your items. Additionally, should for whatever reason you have to change your move date and you have to engage a new moving company, you have all the information you need at hand.


Moving during busy and peak periods requires intentional planning and lots of it in order to be efficient. While it is possible to manage everything on your own, moving services are available to ensure you a safe and fuss-free move day. Not only are they experienced in what they do, but some moving companies even offer additional services, from packing and unpacking to storage and disposal services.
