May, National Moving Month Kick off Relocation Industry’s Peak Season

WARRENVILLE, Ill. April 2011 – Each year, the relocation industry warmly welcomes the month of May.  Not only is May “National Moving Month,” it’s also the first month of a four-month-long peak relocation season.

According to, approximately 44 million moves occur each year and most of those moves are initiated between May and September.  The moving industry uses “National Moving Month” as a time to educate the public on how to plan a successful, low-stress relocation.

During “National Moving Month,” industry professionals are focused on providing relocation services and offering packing tips.  May is also a great time to find specials from various moving companies.

Recently, myBekins launched its myMovingNews site, which offers daily moving and storage tips and news.  myBekins’ main objective in creating the news site was to provide reliable moving and storage information that people could access throughout the year, not just during the peak relocation season.

Despite the fact that the slow housing market has had a profound effect on the relocation industry, experts believe the market will likely turn around during the spring and summer months.  That news comes just in time for the industry’s peak season.

Those who plan on purchasing a new home or using a moving company for any reason should do plenty of research in order to avoid a moving scam.  To assist people in finding a reliable moving company, the American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA) established the ProMover program. This program certifies that members have passed a background check and agree to uphold the AMSA’s code of ethics.

myBekins is a  full-service moving company with 21 agent-owned locations nationwide and is one of America’s largest and most respected moving and storage companies.  In March of 2010 was launched, marking the first website in the relocation industry built for complete and accurate moving estimates, scheduling live appointments and booking a move, all online.
