Your Top Three Moving Questions Answered

At Billy Goat Moving in Fort Collins, we get asked a lot of questions about relocating. People want to know what the moving process entails, and we’re always more than happy to provide the answers. We know that packing everything up and heading to a new place can be daunting, even if it’s just across town. With our professional moving company, you can rest assured that everything will be taken care of in a timely and respectful manner. In this post, we’ll take a look at the top three moving questions that we get asked!


This first question is a very common one, and it’s a legitimate one at that. Why do you need professional movers if you’re capable of packing up and transporting your things on your own? There’s nothing wrong with renting your own truck and moving, but when you think about it, how much time could you save by hiring a reputable company? With our team, you won’t have to worry about the truck breaking down, or having to drive the truck yourself. You can focus on getting everything packed and taking care of your family and their needs.


Once you’ve decided to hire a moving company, then you might begin wondering when you should start packing everything in the house. The answer to this question really depends on how much stuff you have. If you currently live in a one-bedroom apartment, then it will probably only take you two or three days to put everything into boxes. If you live in a five-bedroom house with a large family, then you’ll probably want to start packing a few weeks to a month in advance. You don’t want things to be missed, and you don’t want the movers to show up on moving day to find that half of your stuff isn’t packed. We offer professional packing services that can help you be ready when moving day arrives.


This question can be a complex one, since you may be asking what time of year to move, or what day of the week to move. For the former, it really depends on what your schedule allows and how far you’re going. A lot of people move in the late spring to early summer, since that’s when a lot of houses are on the market, and if you have kids, they’re out of school for the year. As for the day of the week to move, Saturdays are often the most popular, since you likely don’t have to work, and you have Sunday to settle in and unpack a few things. At Billy Goat, we can help you find a day and time of year that works best for you, and we’ll arrive on time and ready to go.

There are, of course, other questions related to moving than just these three, but they’re the ones that we get asked the most. We know that you might be feeling stressed about an upcoming move, or you may have to relocate at a moment’s notice. Whatever the case may be, you can feel confident that your belongings are in qualified and capable hands that will treat everything with care and respect.
