When Should I Call A Moving Company?

The earlier, the better. Although the actual van assignment may not be made until a few days before your move, it's wise to give your moving company from four to six weeks' notice, if possible. The more lead time you can give, the more likely we will be able to meet your delivery schedule.

All moving companies, for their usual type of service, require alternate pickup and delivery dates. We'll do our best, of course, to comply with the dates you prefer or the nearest possible alternative. You will be notified in advance of the loading date for your goods and of the estimated date of arrival.

If your pickup and delivery dates are critical, due to such factors as lease expiration or a real estate closing, you may choose an extra-cost service that will enable us to accommodate a reasonable schedule. You should discuss your specific pickup and delivery requirements with your American Moving & Storage representative, who can advise you of the types and costs of services available.
