More than 40 million Americans relocate every year. That’s a lot of moves to schedule. Our Seattle movers know you want to plan the most affordable and efficient move possible. But wait- does that mean you should move in the summer or the winter? Never fear, our team of expert full-service movers has put together a list of benefits for both a summer or a winter move.
Moving in the summer is so popular because the weather is warmer and more pleasant. You can avoid dangerous road conditions and hopefully (though unlikely here in Seattle) avoid the rain. Warmer weather is a big benefit to a summer move.
School’s out for summer! The words of Alice Cooper are a big reason why many families wish to move in the summer. Pulling kids out of school in the middle of the school year to move to a new city can be disruptive to their education and their progress. Many parents choose to move in the summer, so their kids can finish the year out right.
Winter is not the most popular time of year to move but that’s one of the benefits. Moving companies know that winter is their slow season and offer many discounts and money saving specials to encourage more business. You can save significantly on your move simply by waiting for some colder weather.
Another benefit of moving in the winter is that not many others want to do it, so schedules are a lot more open. You have a better chance of getting the perfect moving date and time when you move in the winter. Movers are also more flexible with their time as they need the business.
One thing that many people don’t think about with their summer moves is the fact that temperatures could get too hot. We’ve seen cases where items in a hot moving truck have overheated, melted or been damaged from the hot conditions. A winter move means that your items will stay at cool temperatures and avoid damage from too much summer heat.
Not only does the winter mean you will have your pick of the schedule, you will also get the best out of your movers. Less moves means your movers will be more energized for your move. The cold also makes people work more efficiently- let’s face it, the less time movers spend out in the cold the better.
There are benefits to moving no matter what time of year you choose. But if you are looking for the cheapest and most efficient move, you may want to consider moving in the winter. Our Seattle movers are ready to tackle whatever moving challenge you throw at us. Whether you move in the summer or in the winter, we will get the job done right. Relax. We got this.
