Are you gearing up for a move this year, and trying to decide on the best time to move? Do you want to beat the heat and weather? Want to get the best moving quotes? Spring might just be the best time for you to move! We go over the benefits and downfalls of an early season and springtime move.

Spring Moving Weather

The first thing to consider in an upcoming move is the seasonal weather, and how you can make it work to your advantage. The early spring is a great time for unpacking boxes and moving them around your new home. The sweet spot for a spring move is after the last thaw, but before the heat kicks in for summer.  Tackle your new move with confidence in early spring. Take advantage of that lovely weather to get everything settled before the heat sets in.

Home Sales in the Spring

While many people will tell you that the fall is the best time for moving because of schools and new school years, the spring season is also a great time to move for those who do not need to be mindful of a new school year. Housing sales see a huge spike in the spring with homeowners focused on getting a whole year in their new home before winter. That early sale and a spring move can give you time to settle in, do repairs, and upgrade or renovate things in your new home before it gets too cold to have the windows open for ventilation (or too hot to want to work).

Spring Allergies and Moving

Unfortunately, spring can bring on a host of allergies. You might find relief when you move! Just be on the lookout for trouble areas which might get you into trouble. Too many homeowners launch right into cleaning up without taking their allergy medicines. Spring brings wet brush and sodden branches full of old mold and dust. Talk to your doctor and make sure you’re ready for all that dampness when you start working on your new home.

Mud, Mud, Mud

Don’t forget that the spring season often brings on a lot of mud as the snow and ground thaws. If you are moving to or from a place that doesn’t have a paved driveway, you may want to consider the mud. Making plans so you don’t track a ton of mud and muddy water into your new home or apartment might be something you want to put on your to-do list while planning a springtime move.

Spring Availability for Moving Companies

Aiming for a move in date is best when you won’t be competing for the time. Trying to move on Labor Day weekend (when the college kids go back to school) or January (when they return from break) is a losing proposition. The good news is spring is a great time to get a good bid and quality work from movers in your area. With kids young and old in school, parents and families tend to move less in the spring. Take advantage of the lull and get your own move done while it’s quiet!
