What Are the Best Times of Year for a Move?

Best time to move with A-1 FreemanIn a perfect world, you'd be able to choose the perfect time to move. Nevertheless, life has its own unpredictable timing, and it is sometimes impossible to be choosy about scheduling your move. Still, if you are able to have the pleasure of planning your next move with plenty of time beforehand, selecting the best time to move to Colorado Springs can save you oodles of frustration, hassle, and even expense! This is certainly true if you are planning on hiring a professional moving company to help you, as booking your move over a non-peak time of year will make it less difficult to find a moving company that can accommodate your scheduling needs for a competitive price.

The Best (And Worst) Times of Year to Plan a Move to Colorado Springs

It's probably not too unexpected to hear that the worst time of year to schedule a move is largely during late May, June, July and August. After all, this is when a lot of families with children are already attempting to move, especially if their children are in school (as the majority of parents would rather their children to begin at a new school at the opening of an academic year). This means moving company's books have a tendcy to fill up more quickly during the summertime, so unless you plan far ahead, you may have a difficult time getting moving help. Pricing during peak-season for moving companies also tends to be higher based on demand.

Likewise, the best time to move is largely during the winter months. Business for movers during this time has frequently slowed down, especially with the holidays, so finding a professional mover to accommodate you should be simpler (even if you are moving with not much notice).

By the same token to moving in the late fall and winter months, you may also want to consider scheduling your move in the middle of the month possibly. That is because the very beginning and end of the month tend to be higher volume for professional movers based on higher demand, as many lease rentals terminate at the beginning of the month. This means that a lot of renters moving to or from a lease are desiring to move at the very beginning or end, rather than smack-dab in the middle of the month.

Finally, while it may not be practical for everyone's work schedules, scheduling a weekday move instead of a weekend relocation can also be a wonderful way to save cash and avoid schedule conflicts with a mover. If you have a flexible place of employment or can take a few days off to move in the middle of the week, the savings can accrue!

Other Important Things to Think About

Over and above planning your move to Colorado Springs to save money and ensure easier scheduling with a professional mover, there are some other things to think about that may sway the timing of your impending move. Depending on the weather where you live, for instance, moving towards the very of December might mean moving in snowy, icy, or otherwise bad weather. In addition, moving over a major travel holiday (such as Thanksgiving) could mean additional traffic on your path, which could slow your progress. But, this is much more likely to be a problem if you're taking on a long-distance move rather than a local one, so it will really be determined by your unique situation.

When possible, a little bit of planning and thinking ahead can go a long way in saving money (and lower your stress level!) when preparing for a move. And by taking your unique needs into consideration, you can ultimately figure out the best time for you to move.
