Choosing The Right Time To Move

Plan Ahead for Your Next Move

While moving may seem as easy as loading boxes into your trunk and bringing them to your new home, the process of moving can be long if not carefully coordinated. Not only does handling the move by yourself cause stress, but any mistakes due to poor packing or labeling can lead to damaged personal belongings and misplaced items.

To minimize the stress of moving, hiring a professional moving company can be crucial during the planning stages.

Which Season Really Is Best?

Another factor to consider besides the best way to coordinate your move is choosing the right time to move. While it may not feel like it sometimes, Texas does experience all 4 seasons. Each season can bring about fluctuating temperatures and other weather events, such as hail, snow, rain, and high winds. To best avoid these weather events, it’s important to know which time of the year is the most ideal for an easy and smooth sailing move.

Spring – After the winter months, people feel refreshed and ready to move during the spring. In the earlier months, the weather can be unpredictable between the colder temperatures and spring showers. The unpredictable nature of spring tends to lead towards low demand for hiring a moving company.

Summer – One of the most popular times to move during the year is summer. Because of the warm weather and long hours of daylight, it can be the best time for families to plan around, especially with kids being off for summer break. However, moving companies will tend to get booked way in advance due to this increased demand which can leave you scrambling to find a suitable company to choose and trust.

Fall – In Texas, some of the most suitable times to move is Fall, primarily due to the ideal temperatures and weather conditions. Because Texas experiences high temperatures in the summer, it can be exhausting and tiresome for any mover. Fall brings about cooler temperatures, which allows for a more comfortable window before the holiday season.

Winter – While people may think about snow when they hear winter, this is very seldom in Texas. On average we experience around .11 inches of snow during the winter months of December-March. With temperatures hovering around 36-44°F, we are more likely to expect rain and high winds. Since winter is classified as an “off-season” for movers, planning a move during the winter can be surprisingly easy with less people trying to schedule weeks in advance. Just like Fall, the cooler temperatures ease the stress of working in the hot and muggy conditions of summer.

While it’s ultimately up to you, moving prices can tend to adjust throughout the year based on supply and demand just like any other industry. For those with apartments, it can be hard to pick the right time to move-out without breaking your lease, but it can be worth it in the long-run.
