Summer is the most popular time to move. During the summer months work schedules are more flexible, children are out of school, and the weather is optimal. But did you know that a late winter move could save you quite a bit of money? When you move off-season, you can pocket some serious savings! There are many reasons that late winter moves tend to cost a bit less. Bekins Moving Solutions always wants to save our customers the most amount of money and produce the best moving experience possible. Here are a few reasons why you may wish to forgo the summer relocation and move during the late winter.
More Flexibility with Your Schedule
For moving companies, the winter is the slow season. This means there may be more opportunities for you to plan your move the way you want it. Many moving professionals during the early spring and summer get quickly booked on the weekends, leaving you having to take off work during the week. However, during the late winter, weekends are more likely to be open. This can work much better with your schedule and lead to a less stressful moving situation that won’t interfere with work.
Late Winter Savings
Because the late winter is a slower time for many moving companies, you can find the best prices during this time. Many movers offer discounts, coupons, or special deals that are only available during winter. Before you start scheduling your move, call a professional moving company to discuss their pricing and any promotions they may have available.
Lower Home Prices and Rental Deals
Whether you are looking to purchase or rent a new home, prices in late winter tend to be lower than in the summer. With fewer people moving, sellers are much more motivated to give you a deal than during the busy season. Look around for special leasing deals in areas you are moving to. If you are having problems finding homes in your area, speak with a professional apartment finder or real estate agent. They can assist you in finding a great deal.
Be Aware of Possible Hiccups
Depending on where you live, a late winter move can have its drawbacks. If there is considerable snow or ice on the ground, your moving crew may need to load your items a bit slower to avoid injury or damage to your items. Bad weather may sometimes delay your belongings if there are dangerous road conditions. While you may risk a few bumps in the road, the benefits of moving during late winter still vastly outweigh the negatives.
