Planning your international move during the peak season could cost you much more. Across the globe, the busiest time for moving companies is always during the summer holidays. Most families with school-going children choose to move during this period as it is less disruptive academically, making this the busiest period for most international moving companies. It is also less likely to be able to engage your first choice International Moving company during this period if you do not book your move in advance as most moves are planned and booked ahead of time. In countries like Singapore, where there is no actual summer season, the moving peak season is concurrent with the summer periods of Europe and USA (June through August) as well as Australia (December and January). This is because of the huge expat population and the high number of International schools which follow the respective Academic calendars of their home country.
