3 Tips For Choosing the Right Relocation Time

One of the most important aspects of any relocation is scheduling the right time for your move. Here are some tips from our professional Calgary movers on how to select the right moving time for your needs.

Moving to a new home is always exciting; you’re starting a new adventure and putting down roots. However, without the proper organization and planning, moving can prove to be stressful and tiring. That’s why it’s always important that you consider:

  • Packing early
  • Hiring professional movers
  • Declutter your old home and get rid of things you no longer need
  • Draw up a floor plan of your new home so your movers know where to put everything
  • Schedule time off work if need be

With the whirlwind of things to do before you move, it’s easy to push some of the smaller tasks aside. However, the above are a few basic things you can do early on in the relocation process to make your moving day easy and stress-free.

A Guide to Choosing The Right Season For Your Relocation

Whether you are moving locally, or across the country, choosing the right time of year to do so plays a huge part in how easy the process is. Before you mark the big relocation date on your calendar, here are 3 factors that will help you decide which time of year best meets your moving needs:

1. Your Budget

Before you schedule your relocation, remember that the peak season for any movers is from May to September. Typically, relocation services will be more expensive at this time, with pricing based on:

  • Distance
  • Number of movers required
  • How much weight is being moved
  • Any storage requirements

How to save some money: If you are trying to cut down on relocation costs, you may want to consider moving in the fall or winter. During these seasons, moving companies don’t have as much business, so you’re more likely to get a competitive rate.

2. Your Schedule

Although it is cheaper to move during fall or winter, a summertime move is often most ideal for families with small children. This is because your little ones will be out of school during the summer and will have some time to adjust to the new house before the beginning of next school year.

Moving in summer may be faster: Remember that it gets darker earlier during the winter time which means that a move which can be completed in 1 day during the summer may turn into a 2-day winter move.

3. Your Speciality Items

One thing that often gets forgotten during the move is whether or not you have any valuable or speciality items you need to relocate. It’s important to think about this because there are some items that can only withstand certain types of weather.

For example, antiques and glasses typically fare better during a warm spring/summer move, while moving liquids or candles is best done during the winter.

Take the time to understand what is important to you: Before you move, think about the items you are moving and how valuable they are to you. You don’t want to ruin a family heirloom or a prized possession because it couldn’t withstand the weather conditions.


Additional Quick Tips For Choosing Your Moving Date

Before deciding when it’s best to move, here are some other quick things you may want to take into consideration:

  • The best day to move is a weekday. There tends to be a higher demand for movers from Friday - Sunday, so if you can afford to miss a work day, try to schedule your relocation from Monday-Thursday.
  • It’s best to move in the morning, when you and your movers are full of energy. Also, the earlier you start, the more time you’ll have to unpack and organize your belongings in your new home.
  • The best months to move are September to April, This is because demand for movers is lower so you’re more likely to get a competitive rate.
