How Long Does a Moving Company Have to Deliver Your Belongings?

Moving truck driving down highwayMoving is almost always a stressful process—especially when you’re relocating to a different state. In many instances, people don’t have time to drive all of their belongings across the country and instead hire a moving company for the task. While you know that it will take some time for the movers to make their way to your new home, it’s understandable that you’ll want your items to arrive as quickly as possible. Therefore, you’re wondering exactly how long a moving company has to deliver your belongings.

Getting a clear and specific answer will depend on the moving company you choose and the delivery window that they provide. However, you can probably get a ballpark idea of how long it will take to get your items depending on:

How Far You Are Moving

If you’re moving to the next state over, you can expect a shorter delivery time—roughly 1-7 days. The more states that your movers have to cover, the longer the wait, taking anywhere up to 22 days. Of course, the exact distance will narrow down the number of days it will take for your movers to get to you.

The Time of Year

Believe it or not, the season in which you’re moving can impact how long it takes for your belongings to get delivered. In the late fall or winter months, inclement weather such as snow or icy rain can cause delays. If you have the ability to pick a time of year, try to shoot for spring/summer when the weather is nicer and the days are longer.
