What’s the best time of the year to move? Ultimately, it’s whatever suits you best. That being said, there are certain advantages to moving during particular times of the year. Read on to learn why you might be better off moving during the fall and winter.

Why Do So Many People Move during the Summer?

As the song goes, “Summertime, and the living is easy.” During the summertime, many people are on vacation, so fewer important projects are carried out at work.

In addition, most school-aged children aren’t in school during the summer. So, moving at this time of the year won’t interrupt their studies or their social lives.

What Are the Disadvantages to Moving during the Summer?

Moving during the most popular time of the year is not without its pitfalls, though. Whenever an activity is very popular, it becomes more difficult to do.

Because so many people move during the summer, it’s harder to find moving companies with availability. And if they have availability, it might not work with your schedule as well as you would like. Furthermore, because moving services are in such high demand, you’ll have to pay more for them.

Why Move in the Late Fall or Winter?

The late fall or winter might seem like the least appealing times of the year to move. It might be raining or snowing, and it’s definitely not as warm. If you’ve got kids, they’re smack dab in the middle of the school year.

All of these seeming disadvantages actually work in your favour. Because no one wants to move in less-than-pleasant weather, you get the choice of dates and times for when you want to move. All the trucks and personnel are available!

Some moving companies will offer customers a discount during the winter, so there’s an additional incentive to move during this time. Not only do you get greater choice, but you save money, too!

For people without school-aged children, a late fall or winter move isn’t as disruptive. But even if you do have children in primary or secondary school, you can still minimize the disruption of a late fall or winter move. Plan it during the holiday season when they’re on break from school anyway. When they start again during the next semester, all of the students will be on the same page.
