Why Spring is the Best Time to Move

If you are thinking about moving or are in the process of moving, this blog may shed some light on why we believe spring is the best time to move. Many people prefer to avoid the hassle of moving during the colder months, while others may only move in the hot summer months to enjoy the outdoors. So, where’s the happy medium? It’s spring, and we’re sure of it. From advantages such as lower moving costs to reduced stress, spring can be the perfect time to pack up. Let’s dive in and see if spring moving really is better.

Why is it better to move in the Spring?

Longer Daylight Hours Makes Spring a Great Time to Move. Spring gives us longer days with more sunlight, making moving safer and easier. Unlike winter’s short days, spring lets us plan and execute moves in the evening without worrying about it being too dark. This extra daylight means we can pack, load, and unpack more efficiently, reducing stress and accidents. Plus, with longer daylight hours in spring, even those who work late can still find time to move after work! With the longer daylight hours and nicer weather, individuals and families are more inclined to explore housing options. 

What do you think? Would you prefer to move in the spring? 

Easy Scheduling and Lower Moving Costs: Spring is the best time to move for several reasons. Most importantly, finding movers during this time is much easier, which makes scheduling your move seamless. To add to this, moving in the spring is cheaper (less demand in the spring = possible discounts!) than moving in the summer! It’s a win-win! No snow AND cheaper! 

So why not save some money while still getting your move complete?

Settle in Before Summer: Moving in the spring allows you to settle in comfortably before the hot summer months arrive. It’s the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the nice weather to unpack and organize your new home!

What is the benefit of moving in the spring? Spring provides a peaceful break from the holiday rush, minimizing distractions and scheduling conflicts during moving. It’s true – there aren’t many holidays or major events that happen in the springtime!

Is there more to explore in the spring? The outdoor opportunities in the spring are endless. Exploring your new neighbourhood in the springtime and enjoying the warmer weather and vibrant surroundings makes moving much better. It’s also the perfect time to get familiar with your new neighbourhood and neighbours! Let the outdoor BBQs and block parties begin!

Spring: A Fresh Start with Housing Choices: Spring is a time for new beginnings and exciting housing options. With sunny days and blooming flowers, sellers show off their homes, giving buyers and renters many choices. But spring isn’t just about homes – it’s also a time to clean up and make changes. As winter ends, many people start “spring cleaning,” clearing the clutter and welcoming new opportunities.

Moving in spring isn’t just changing where you live; it’s starting a new chapter. So, if you’re ready for something new, spring is your perfect opportunity! Look at housing options, embrace change, and let this season of fresh starts lead the way.
