Now’s The Best Time To Move
Optimal Weather for Moving
Fall weather is temperate, which is the best case scenario for moving. You’ll have the best chances of keeping cool while doing any heavy lifting but also likely be able to avoid bulky winter coats.
Summer is the peak season for moving in America. The competition from other renters drives up prices. In the Fall, demand is lower, which means prices are too. Moving in the Fall isn’t the only way to save; check out our tips for how to move on a budget.
Movers Have More Availability
Less demand means less competition for apartments, but it also means less competition when hiring movers. Moving companies have more availability and can often be more flexible with your timing. You may even be able to add on additional services like packing with less notice.
Upcoming Holiday Sales
Break something during the packing process? Realize your new space has an extra corner you need to fill? If you move during the fall you can plan any furniture, cookware, or household upgrades to coincide with the winter sales at many major retailers.
Kids Are Back In School
Moving involves a lot of, well, moving parts. Moving when the kids are in school can help minimize distractions and interference.
Settle In Before The Holidays
Winter is full of holiday celebrations and year-end parties. Whether you’re hosting or attending, it’s nice to be settled into your space prior to the holiday rush!
