Target your date as soon as possible

As soon as you know when you will be moving, you will want to let your professional movers know.  This way they can make every effort to meet your date.  This will also help if you have any temporary storage needs and any other third party services.  Make sure to coordinate those services with your professional mover once you set your date.

Meet with movers as soon as possible

Once you know you will be moving, schedule appointments to meet your professional movers.  This gives you the time to meet them and get to know them and familiarize yourself with their services.
