Here’s Why Fall is a Great Time to Move

You may not always have a choice when you have to move to a new home or apartment, as sometimes you might need to do so because of a job or other circumstances. However, in other cases, you may be able to plan your move ahead of time. Perhaps you’ve been thinking about making a local move to a place that better suits your needs. Or, maybe you want to live in a new city or even state.

If you’ve wanted to switch things up, fall is possibly the best time of the year to move, and here’s why:

1. The Weather is Better

Let’s face it. The temperatures can feel extreme in the middle of summer. The higher heat might give you an excellent reason to go to the lake, but it does make doing any heavy lifting more difficult. Trying to get all of your stuff in and out of your home when it’s so hot is challenging. And, moving in the winter is difficult because of snow, cold, and ice. Fall is a great middle-ground when packing for a move isn’t as physically taxing.

2. Many Services Will Be Cheaper

Whether you need help with a long-distance move or to store your stuff in a storage unit, prices are generally better during autumn. Summer is a popular time for people to move, and the demand means some things are less affordable. So, autumn may be your best choice if you want to move on a budget and not stress about looking for more competitive rates.

3. Moving Services are More Available

Along with many services being more affordable in the fall, they are often easier to schedule. When moving companies are busy during the peak of moving season, you may have trouble finding help that works with your schedule. But, during the fall, it’s much easier to find available times for help with packing and moving.

4. You Can Move Before the Holidays

While the holiday season might mean joy and giving, it can also be hectic. With so many activities and errands to run, the end of the year gets busy. Trying to move during all of this can be taxing. So, if you move in the fall months, you’ll settle into your new place before the holiday season kicks in.
