Your Settlement Date
If all goes well, your settlement date will be established two to three months in advance.
If your settlement date is earlier, you should start researching moving companies right away. This is especially important in the spring and summer, when movers are in their peak moving season.
Give yourself the time to determine your relocation needs. Are you on a budget? Do you want your movers to pack as well as move? Are you downsizing? Do you need storage in between your settlements? These are important questions to consider, because your moving company will ask them and moving day WILL creep up on you.
