Best Season to Move

 


Moving is stressful. And if you're moving during the wrong time of year, it can be even more frustrating. It can be difficult to decide when the right time is to move, but there are many advantages in moving at certain times of the year.

This article lists some best seasons of the year to move.

1. Fall

One of the best seasons to move is during the fall. The weather in this season is pleasant and cool, making it ideal for a long-distance relocation. Plus, kids are back in school so you won't have any worries about stowing them away with their friends or family members for the duration of your move.

However, you may find it difficult to find a moving company because very few are available during this season due to seasonal activities like hurricane cleanup. Also, construction delays may prevent homes from being finished by October 15th (the most popular date); and insurance premiums may skyrocket. In addition, towns typically implement leaf collection programs around this time of year.

2. Winter

Winter may be an ideal time for you to move if you're looking for more affordable rates. The prices of moving drastically reduce in the winter months because there's less demand and fewer movers available to take on jobs.

If you live in an area where snowfall is common, it may not seem like the best time to move because you will have additional expense clearing out driveways and sidewalks before being able to leave your old home or building. But if you don't mind shoveling off walkways then this could work well for you financially.

In addition, the costs associated with air conditioning bills during summertime could come as a saving grace during these colder months since they won't cost you anything extra.

3. Spring

In spring, temperatures are milder and there's not so much rain. Plus, it has more daylight hours than other times of year. That makes it a good time to move. Better still the demand for moving services is low.

4. Summer

Summer is ideal for those who want to avoid the cold and snow that winter brings. Moving in the summer means you won't have to worry about paying for a heater or shoveling your driveway once it snows. It's also ideal if you're worried about all of spring's rain, because any precipitation before October will most likely be gone by May, leaving behind dry pavements.

Moreover, moving during this time can help you save on packing costs with lower utility bills and reduced need for AC. During this season, there's also a reduced risk of inclement weather, and your family will have the opportunity to enjoy more outdoor activities.

If you have school going kids, the summer break will allow them some down-time from their studies.It will also be easier for them if they don't have any homework or tests because they'll have plenty of time to rest and get used to their new neighborhood.

The Bottom Line

There's no perfect time to move. It depends on your situation, budget, urgency and needs. Consider all factors before making any decisions so that next season may not feel too early either.
