How far in advance should I schedule my move? What are the best days of the week to move?

FlatRate recommends at least three weeks in advance when moving locally. For long-distance or international, we recommend four weeks. When it comes to picking a day of the week, Wednesdays are the best day since fewer people request them, followed by Tuesdays and Thursdays. Fridays and weekends are usually the busiest days resulting in competition for elevator access, which can cause delays in your move.
