Moving is probably the last thing you want to do when temperatures start to fall. Though, there are some good reasons to plan a move when the leaves begin to turn, so we’ve compiled a list of reasons why moving in the winter can be beneficial to you.
Save Money: One of the biggest benefits of moving during the winter months is that your moving expenses could be lower. Local moving companies tend to lower their prices during the offseason since fewer people are looking to move. Overall, moving in the winter could reduce the amount of money you have to spend on the move and other expenses associated with it.
More Flexibility: During the summer months, your top moving companies are often booked out 3-4 weeks (possibly longer) so moving during the winter can be easier to get the perfect date for your move. In many cases, you can schedule the movers to come at the exact time and day you want; whereas, during the spring and summer months this might be more difficult to achieve depending on your movers’ schedule.
Good For The Goods: Moving in the summer is not only hot for you, but it’s also hot for your belongings. When you move in the cold, your belongings have a better chance of not getting damaged because of the heat. You won’t have to worry about items melting or overheating (as long as they’re properly packed) so your belongings will be as safe as possible.
Planning a move during the winter might not seem great, but if you can make it work for your schedule, then it can actually be a very favorable experience. So if you’re looking to move, don’t let a little cold weather get in your way.
As always, you should do your research before deciding on a company to use for your move.
Thanks for reading and good luck with your move!
