Colorful yellow and orange daffodils

After a long winter, spring has much to recommend it. Most of us are already feeling stir crazy and eager for fresh air and a change of scene — maybe even a move.

If so, there are some pros and cons about a springtime move that you’ll want to know before you reach for that packing tape.

Popular = Pricey?

Unlike the harsher winter season, spring and summer are both popular times to move. Like any basic supply and demand equation, pricing can increase during these busier moving times. Securing moving trucks can also be trickier, with less availability for this same reason.

However, timing is everything.

Spring officially begins on March 20, with the season spanning until May 31. The month of May represents the peak season for spring moves, so you might actually find better deals and greater flexibility from moving companies if you can book your move during March and April.

School is Still in Session

This challenge certainly doesn’t apply to everyone eager to make a springtime move, but those with children know that spring is a busy season before the school year ends in June. If you can delay your move date, doing so might save a lot of unnecessary angst and upheaval.

Granted, the majority of moves do take place during the summer — 70% between Memorial Day and Labor Day — which means you will find yourself dealing with increased prices and decreased availability.

April Showers…

Although a milder season, springtime weather is still unpredictable. If you decide to move during March or April, make sure you keep a close eye on the weather to avoid any rain storms or high winds that could really put a damper (we couldn’t resist) on your moving day.

Of course, you can save yourself all sorts of moving-related headaches, year-round, by partnering with the pros.

One thought on “Should You Move in the Springtime?”

  1. School season makes it impossible for me to relocate right now. I am thinking about end of June. It might be good time to relocate.
