The Advantages of a Spring Move
Spring is a season of change — the snow melts, the flowers bud, and everything seems to come alive. It’s often accompanied by a desire for change. Some people itch to get some spring cleaning done while others take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Many others view spring as the opportune season for moving to a new home.
Having been in the moving business for almost 60 years, All Jersey Moving & Storage has completed moves in every season. However, moving in spring has many unique advantages. Here are some of the many perks of moving during the spring months that we have learned over the years.
Mild Weather Makes the Experience More Enjoyable
Every season has its pros and cons for moving, but spring may be the best option in terms of weather. The sunshine isn’t scalding hot just yet, and the blooming trees and plants outside your window create a calm atmosphere that makes it more enjoyable to sort through your belongings, pack and prepare to move. You may find yourself smiling while packing, enjoying the gorgeous weather spring tends to usher in.
Spring weather also makes moving easier, as neither you or your professional movers are forced to contend with the snowy blizzards and icy streets of winter or the blistering heat of summer. You won’t have to worry about breaking a sweat in the summer or trekking snow through your new home in the winter. Because of this, expect spring moving dates with your preferred moving company to fill up quickly.
Safeguard Your Possessions
With a spring move, you’ll avoid possible damage to your possessions as you’ll be moving in a season without hot temperatures. Items such as fine art or pantry goods are kept safe out of the heat. Make sure to check with your moving company to see that your items will be properly stored during your move, no matter the season.
At All Jersey Moving & Storage, we specialize in piano moving, fine art relocation, antique moving, and more. We know the best processes and have the expertise to ensure safe relocation of your things. Save time, stress, and money by relying on professional movers like All Jersey Moving & Storage.
Avoid Major Holidays
It can be stressful and even painful to move during a holiday season such as Christmas or Thanksgiving. These times call for quality time spent with friends and family, not late nights sorting and packing. By moving in the spring, you’ll be able to complete your move with peace of mind and avoid missing out on the holidays you look forward to year-round.
Be sure to book with a professional moving company like All Jersey Moving & Storage a company at least one month prior to secure your preferred spring moving date. While we recommend booking as far in advance as possible – especially during busy moving months like spring and summer – we do our utmost to accommodate last-minute moving requests.
Be All Moved in Before Fall
For most, fall is quite a busy season. School starts, businesses focus on finishing up the fourth quarter, and like we mentioned earlier, the holidays start to fill your time. Moving can be stressful enough without added stressors and responsibilities. By planning a spring move, you can avoid the unnecessary stress of moving during more hectic times of the year.
If you’re preparing for a long-distance move, moving in the spring gives you ample time to get acquainted with your new neighborhood. By the time Christmas comes around, you’ll know the best shops to visit, the most delicious restaurants to take your family to, and the best locations to take your holiday photos. Moving boxes will be long gone and your home will be in shape for hosting holiday gatherings with friends and family. A long distance move long before the fall is ideal!
Align with School Schedules
If you wait until the end of spring to execute a move to another city or state, you can avoid disrupting the school year. Your children can finish their classes and say their goodbyes before you hit the road. This makes the transition much easier as they’ll be able to start at their new schools with the start of the new school year in the fall, rather than being disrupted mid-year. In addition, if your children are beginning high school or middle school, they’ll start the year with everyone else rather than entering the school year disruptively as the new kid on the block. Plus, the milder weather of spring offers many opportunities for you to acquaint yourself and your children with your new area, from visiting local ice cream shops and outdoor markets to spending time at your neighborhood park.
Enhance Your Curb Appeal
If you’re selling your home, spring is an apt time to improve your curb appeal. Plant some flowers, prune your trees, mow the lawn and invest in outdoor planters. These simple action steps will help make your house look that much more attractive to potential buyers! This can increase your chances of selling the house at an optimal price. Moving in spring also gives you the opportunity to spruce up the garden at your new home too so you can enjoy the outdoor spaces all summer long.
Spring Clean Your Old and New Homes
With warmer weather comes spring cleaning fever! You may suddenly feel a desire to air out the house, donate old things, and get rid of clutter. This is the perfect type of fever to catch when you’re getting ready to move. It will come in handy as you prepare to sell your home and move into a new one.
The warm weather also makes it easy to open up the windows and enjoy the sunshine while you work your way through your moving to-do list.
Use Renewed Energy to Tackle Packing
Another symptom of spring fever is restlessness and renewed energy. Although you have a whole house of items to sort through and pack, spring brings renewed energy to help you get it all done.
If you want to keep that energy available for other responsibilities on your plate, consider hiring a professional mover to take care of the job for you. All Jersey Moving & Storage provides residential moving, commercial moving, packing and unpacking services and short-term and long-term containerized storage.
Take Advantage of Discounts & Availability
Most people move in the summer, as school is out and it can be easier to take time off of work. However, because of that, summer can be one of the busiest and therefore most expensive seasons to move. Some moving companies charge higher rates and get booked out quickly.
Moving during slower seasons generally means moving companies have greater availability and may even be able to offer slightly discounted rates. This means you’ll likely be able to hire a reputable professional moving company for your preferred moving date at a lower price. Obtain a complimentary quote for your upcoming move here.
It’s Easier on Your Pets
Moving is stressful, even for pets! You may find that they get nervous as boxes begin to pile up and they sense a coming change. Moving day can be especially stressful on your pets. It’s also a busy day with limited time and ability to comfort and care for them.
A spring move can alleviate some of the stress on your pets. If you have a fenced in yard, you can let your pets enjoy the fresh air outside while your movers pack up your belongings. You may also want to consider boarding your pets on moving day or asking a friend to “pet sit” to ensure they get the best care while you are busy directing your movers.
How to Achieve a Successful Spring Move
Whether you’ve moved five times already, or this is your first time, moving can be overwhelming! It takes planning, time, energy, organization, and so much more. Moves are especially challenging if you are moving long distance to a new city or even state!
Moving should be an exciting time of renewal for you and your family, or your business. It should be a time to clear out clutter, organize your things, and get a fresh start in a new place.
