Move Now Before the Spring Rush

Move Now Before the Spring Rush

If you have the luxury of choosing your moving date, we recommend you move now before the spring rush. Yes, that’s right! We believe moving in the winter is much better than moving once the weather heats up. Here are five reasons why a winter move is the best time to pack up and go.

Miss The End of Term Rush

In Ottawa, the college and university students normally finish their last exams by April. If they’re not staying in their current rental or in the dorms, they will be moving.  Considering there are over 50,000 students at Carlton and University of Ottawa alone, you may want to try to plan your move ahead of the spring rush.

Avoid The Busiest Time For Sales

As soon as the weather warms up, the “For Sale” signs start popping up all over. People start listing their homes, and potential buyers start their feverish hunt. In some markets, those homes will close fast, especially if the market is hot. In other cases, people will have dragged out their closings dates over the winter to avoid having to move in the colder weather, which means many of those closings will happen in the springtime. If you wait to move when everyone else does, you may not get the price and dates you desire.

Receive Better Rates

With fewer people moving in the winter, you are often likely to find a better rate from your local moving company. Many companies offer discounts or promotions for moving in the off-season. You can really take advantage of some amazing savings this time of year.

Get More Help

You can get as much help as you need in the winter. With more moving staff available, you might be able to get the help of three movers instead of two. And if you need help packing or unpacking there will likely be extra staff on hand to help, which isn’t always the case come springtime.

Dates Can Be Flexible

When moving during the “off-season,” you can be more flexible with your moving dates and times. There should be more availability, which means you can pick the schedule you want without having to rush.

Avoid all the competition and move now before the spring rush. Our team at First Rate Movers are ready to accommodate your winter move. We have all the equipment, materials, and staff needed to ensure that you have a safe, reliable and affordable moving process. Call us today for more details!
