When seasons change during the year, so does the strategy of packing up and moving out. Spring is a time for new beginnings. It is also an ideal time for many people to move. Tons of leases and home buying options are prime-time during the warmer months, especially when school is ending. Here are some tips and tricks to prepare for your move during the spring months!
New England has a strange weather pattern in the spring – some days may be colder, while other are hot and rainy. Same goes throughout the day as well. Mornings tend to be colder than later afternoons. Make sure to check the weather beforehand so that you’re not stuck doing your move on a rainy day, or one that is surprisingly cold for the spring.
As Daylight Savings time begins, moving can be a little easier. Trying to work around the sun setting at 4pm in the winter can be challenging. Having a full day of sun to be able to see what you’re doing definitely will help with productivity! Try to opt for the weeks following Daylight Savings to get optimal moving time.
To attract more and more customers, moving companies tend to stay away from charging high prices during the spring months. This can also attract students moving out of off-campus housing. Compared to a summer move, you will be able to find a good deal for your move if you choose to do it in the springtime. Check around to see what sort of deals you’ll get on packing services as well as the actual move itself.
Pollen allergies are very common in the spring, so make sure to keep your allergy medications on-hand if you end up needing them during your move. Try to avoid hours where the pollen density is high, usually from 5 am to 10 am. Sneezing and sniffling while moving may hinder the process. Pollen can also easily collect on moving boxes and furniture sitting outside. Basing your move off the times of pollen density can help you to avoid having to over-clean.
As you can tell, spring is the ideal time to move and start a new chapter of life! Whether it be in a new house or an apartment. If you’re in need of professional, reliable moving services, contact MacDonald Moving Services at 800-225-0394 or use our contact form to get in touch with us.
