We can’t always anticipate or control when we need to make a move, and sometimes it can happen during the most inconvenient times, like the holidays! If you’re stuck moving this Christmas season, don’t stress. We have some handy tips for moving over the holidays to help you sail through it like a pro. Block Read More…
Sometimes, you don’t have the liberty of choosing your moving date — especially if you find your dream home with a 30-day closing date. But if you’re given the option to choose, we recommend that you consider relocating in the fall. There are plenty of perks that come along with this time of year. Let’s dig a little deeper into why moving in the fall is a good idea.
The Weather is Ideal
Fall often has the most pleasant weather for moving. The days are often mild enough, so you don’t have to worry about having freezing cold hands or slippery surfaces. There’s also no intense heat or humidity to worry about. This perfect medium allows for the most pleasant moving experience by far. You will get the best work out of the moving crew at this time of year and therefore more for your money.
Kids are in School
Your older teenagers can make great helpers (sometimes), but your younger children can often unintentionally get in the way during a move. Thankfully, during the fall season, the kids are in school which means you don’t have to worry about planning for keeping them occupied throughout the process.
Less Competition Equals Better Pricing
Spring and summer are generally the busiest months out of the year when it comes to moving. Moving companies often charge premium rates during the summer months. In the Fall, you are more likely to pay regular rates or maybe even a discounted rate. If you’re looking to get a better price, this is a good time to do it.
You Can Save on Other Costs
During the high season, consumer goods are also priced at a premium. Paint, carpet, lawn furniture, and more household materials all come at a cost during the spring and summer. If you move in the fall, you can actually save money if you need to purchase these things, as many of these items go on sale during this time of year. Coordinating your move with the end of year sales can save you a lot of money all around.
Moving in the fall is really a win-win situation. But regardless of the time of year that you need to move, you’ll always receive professional, friendly, reliable, and timely service from our team at First Rate Movers.
