Summer is the busiest season for moving, and, if you are planning on doing so, there are reasons why it’s not a bad idea to call your local movers as soon as possible. Around Town Movers shares the reasons why the summer season is the best time for moving.
Better Weather – Anyone who has had to move during late fall or winter will tell you how difficult it can be. It’s not just because it’s uncomfortable, but there’s also the risk of slipping on icy walkways. Snow banks can also be a problem when your moving truck needs to pull up close to the curb. Cold weather is also not ideal if you’re moving a lot of books, electronics and antique furniture. Postponing your moving plans to the summer season helps make moving easier and more comfortable.
You Can Hold Garage Sales – A garage sale is a good way to dispose of items that you’re not taking with you when you move, and what better time to host one than during summer? The proceeds from your garage sale can help you offset the relocation costs. Alternatively, Around Town Movers offers auction disposal services if you don’t have time to host a garage sale.
Moving for School – The school year starts in the fall, so moving in the summer gives you time to research good schools in the new area. Your kids will be ready for the first day of school; moving in the middle of a term means they will need to do a lot of catching up on. Summer is also the season when college-age kids decide to move out. In any case, moving in the summer means there won’t be a sudden change in the household status quo shortly after you move.
Fewer Chances of Delays – Summer may be a busy season for movers, but there are fewer chances of delays due to weather. Despite the summer heat, moving won’t likely be as stressful.
