You have done the research on a new neighborhood and picked a perfect house, but do you know the best time of year to move?
Most people like to move in the summer because the kids are school break and the weather is more predictable. Therefore, November through January is the best time to move if you don’t live where it snows (like California) because the rates will be cheaper. Of course, with Student Movers you will always get the best price, but it is worth thinking about!
If you have children, think about moving them at the end of the year so they don’t have to switch schools mid year. Of course, some people say that transferring in the middle of the year does have advantages because the teachers will give them more special attention to ensure that they catch up to the rest of their classmates. Either way, if your moving day is flexible, talk to your children about what point in the year is best.
The final thing to consider when choosing a time of year to move is what holidays are around the move date. Three day weekends, national holidays and of course the big ones, Christmas and Thanksgiving are terrible times to move because of the added traffic on the roads.
We know that your moving day is not always flexible but if it is, keep these tips in mind! And remember, whatever the time of year, rain or shine, Student Movers is hear to help you move into your new home!
