3 Things to Think About When Scheduling Your Relocation

One of the most important aspects of a successful move, apart from hiring professional house movers, is choosing when to schedule your relocation. Here are some things to ask yourself when selecting the right moving time. 

Moving into a new home is an exciting chapter of anyone’s life. However, without proper planning and the right equipment, a relocation can prove to be stressful, tiring, and may even cause injury to you or your family. 

That’s why it’s important you always: 

  • Hire professional house movers
  • Begin packing and organizing your belongings early 
  • Purchase insurance for your fragile and expensive items 
  • Keep a floor plan of your new house so you can show your movers where to put everything

How to Choose The Right Time For Moving House 

Whether you are moving to a new house close by, or relocating across the country, choosing the right time to do so can make the entire process easier. To help you out, here are three questions you must ask yourself to determine which time of year best meets your needs:

1. What’s Your Budget? 

If you are considering hiring professional house movers, you must remember that the peak season for such professionals is from May - September. This means that moving services are typically more expensive at this time, with pricing often based on: 

  • Relocation distance
  • The weight being hauled
  • Any storage requirements you may have
  • The number of movers required to get the job done most efficiently 

How to save money during your relocation: You can save a significant amount of money by choosing to move in the fall or winter. During the colder seasons, professional movers don’t have as much business, so you may be able to enjoy a more competitive rate. 



2. What Does Your Family’s Schedule Allow?

Even though summer is peak moving season, this is normally the best time to move if you have children. Why? Your children will be on holiday during this time, which means they’ll have time to adjust to their new living situation. 

Bonus Summer Moving Tip: If you do decide to move during the summer, always try to schedule your move for the middle of the month. Most people generally prefer to move during the first and last week of the month, so doing so in the middle will ensure you get a spot on the moving company’s calendar. 



3. What Types of Items Are You Moving? 

Many people neglect to think about what types of items they are moving when choosing a relocation date. However, you must understand that some items are better suited to certain types of weather. This means that you should always think about what items you are relocating to your new home, and how important they are to you when scheduling your move. 

Remember: You don’t want to ruin a prized possession or an expensive item, such as a piano, because it couldn’t withstand the weather conditions. 


Additional Considerations to Make When Choosing a Relocation Date 

Before deciding what date is best for your relocation, here are some other factors you should take into consideration: 

  1. The best time of day to move is in the morning. This is because the earlier you start, the more time you’ll have at the end of the day to unpack and organize your items in your new home. 
  2. Consider choosing a weekday relocation. There is a higher demand for movers during the weekend, so if you can afford to schedule your move during a weekday, you should. 
  3. April to September is the best time for a move. The demand for professional movers is slower at this time, and the weather isn’t so extreme. This means your rate will be more competitive and your move will be safer.
