Why Spring Is the Best Season to Move

Spring is a time of new beginnings — of longer days and warmer weather, of budding flowers and fresh starts. It’s also a great time of year to move for multiple reasons. True, most people typically don’t have a choice of when to relocate and are instead dependent on such factors as the real estate market, the school calendar, and family and work schedules. However, for anyone fortunate enough to be able to pick springtime as the span in which to make a residential transition, it can make your move less stressful and much smoother!


  1. Good Weather
    Climatic conditions can significantly impact the success of your move. Across the country in springtime, the weather is normally milder and more agreeable — after the snows of winter, but before the heat and humidity of summer. A spring move greatly increases the chances that you and your movers can safely transport and deliver all of your belongings in a temperate environment that avoids dangerous and/or uncomfortable weather conditions.
  2. Spring Break
    When your kids are occupied in school, it allows you the freedom to plan and prepare, to organize your move, and to pack everything up. On the other hand, if you schedule your move over spring break, you can enlist the help (and the hands!) of everyone in the family to execute and expedite the move. So whether the kids are in or out of school on move day, use your time wisely to make the most of both their absence and their presence.
  3. Availability of Moving Companies
    Summer is traditionally the busiest time of year for movers, given summer break from school and the higher frequency of summer vacations. But movers are likely to be more available in the spring, which gives you more leeway with your schedule and more options for a personalized move. Get a head start on the summer rush by booking your move earlier in the year, which will reap seasonal rewards.

We advise scheduling your move at least 3 to 6 months in advance. This time frame will allow your moving company of choice to easily and efficiently make an inventory of all the personal possessions in your home, to secure your preferred move day and time, and to reserve the number of trucks and movers needed.
