Busy Buddies is one of the top senior move managers in the local area, specializing in all aspects of the moving process, from logistics to providing emotional support. Today, we discuss why winter is actually a good time to move. You don’t have to wait for warmer weather to move out, and here’s why:
Your Belongings Will Be Safer: The temperatures inside a moving truck can be scorching in the summer. A small mistake in your packing or storage can lead to your belongings getting damaged by the heat. All sorts of things can get damaged by prolonged exposure to hot temperatures, including soap, candles, vinyl records, paintings and more. If you move in the winter, you won’t have to worry about this problem.
You’ll Find More Openings: Winter is the slow season for movers, so even if you live in an urban area, you’ll have no problem scheduling the move. If you’ve always planned to declutter your home, or help the seniors of your family move, then winter is a good season for it.
You’ll Save More Money: Since winter is a slow season for many moving companies, prices are more affordable and some companies may even offer discounts to entice customers. Storage is also more affordable during the winter, so it’s in your best interest to take advantage of this opportunity. To get even more savings, try to schedule your move during the week rather than on the weekend, and during the middle of the month.
