One of the first things that we always like to mention in regards to moving is how common it is during each season. Most people move during the summer. This is due to things like kids changing schools and the weather being much nicer for moving. Moving days often require quite a bit of time outside and I’m not sure anyone enjoys having a wet mattress to sleep in for their first night in their new home, so the balance of nice days versus wet ones in the summer often seems to be relatively safe. However, that also means that there are more people competing for the rental units that are open during the summer. Landlords will have more choices and it therefore may be more difficult to get something locked down during those warm months. Once the weather cools off a bit, things tend to slow down so you might have a better chance starting in October.
Speaking of the weather, the cooler temperatures can be beneficial when you are moving. Let’s face it, moving around heavy furniture is hard work. You sweat a lot when you’re moving stuff like that and if it’s in the heat of summer you may need to be careful of dehydration and heat related illnesses. While you still need to be careful in regards to overworking yourself and anyone helping you, it is normally a bit better when the ambient temperatures are lower.
While each season has some benefits in regards to moving, each one also has their own drawbacks. It is important to weigh your options when you are able to and make an informed decision about moving. Give us a call and see how much of a difference relying on Talley can make when you’re getting ready for a change.
