When Is the Best Time to Move?

Best time to movePacking up your whole house or apartment and moving your family to a brand new place is exciting and stressful at the same time. Add on top of that the financial aspect, and you may start to question why you’re moving in the first place. At Joe Bonnie & Son Moving & Storage, we understand the stresses that come with moving and strive to make it as easy on you as possible. This starts with figuring out when is the best time to move.

Keep Your Schedule Flexible

There are definitely peak moving seasons during the year, and every Del Ray Beach, FL moving company takes advantage of this time. According to UrbanBound, relocation specialists, the busiest time of year to move is during the summer, when the weather is nice and the kids are out of school. While this is convenient, you can also expect higher rates, since moving companies are in higher demand.

To get the best rates, keep your schedule flexible as to the time of year, time of the month, day of the week and even the hour of day. You’re more likely to get a great rate by moving in Autumn during the middle of the month on a weekday after hours. This is ideally the best time to move.

Consider the Children

You will also want to take into account your children’s schedules. A move will go a lot easier on kids if they have time to adjust to their new surroundings. Give them time to say good-bye to their old home and friends and get to know their new home and neighbors.

Of course, your schedule may dictate when you need to move, allowing very little wiggle room. Another great time to move is during the off-season when the weather is still good enough for moving. Spring and Autumn are your best bets for competitive rates. Avoid weekends and peak hours of the day to save even more.
