Why Spring May Be the Best Time to Move

Much like moving, spring is a time of change and new beginnings. It is also often a great time to prepare for a move because of the mild temperatures and longer daylight hours. If you are thinking about moving, spring might just be the best time to schedule it.

Our Santa Clarita movers at Affordable Quality Moving and Storage have listed a few benefits of moving in the spring:

Mild Spring Weather

The mild weather during late March and early June is considered the greatest advantage of moving in the spring. The weather isn’t too hot or too cold, which makes it the perfect condition to move. Santa Clarita and much of Southern California experiences hot weather during the summer, which can make moving a challenge. The moderate spring weather makes moving tasks like carrying around heavy boxes or loading/unloading much easier. Just be sure to check the forecast for rain, as this is a possibility during the late spring in particular.

Convenient Moving Dates

Since the highest demand for movers is during June, July, and August, there are usually more moving dates available in the spring. You should have no problem securing a convenient date for your spring move, and you won’t have to change your plans suddenly or need to abide by inconvenient hours of availability. Moving in the spring may also be slightly cheaper, as you would not be competing for popular dates.

Easier Scheduling for Families with Kids

Some parents may want to move in the summer because they intend for their kids to help with packing and other aspects of the move. Summer break may be a good opportunity for this, but when your kids are home from school, it can be more difficult to pack and get things done. You may find that you’re more productive while your kids are in school, but if you really want them to be involved or for them to not miss any school, you can always move over spring break! Either way, moving in the spring can help you take advantage of a schedule that works right for your family.

Better Opportunities to Sell Your Home

Spring is considered the best season for selling houses because buyers like to have enough time to settle in by the time summer arrives. A house also looks much more appealing in the spring because it will be surrounded by lush greenery and beautiful flowers. All these factors can result in an increased opportunity to sell your home quickly and at a great price.

You’ll Be Settled Before Summer

Another advantage to moving in the spring is that you’ll be all moved in and settled before summer hits. Getting all the moving and unpacking out of the way during the spring means that you’ll have more time to enjoy your summer, whether you go on vacation, camp, hike, swim, or simply relax with loved ones.
