There’s no other season more exhilarating, inspiring, and uplifting than the springtime. Birds fly back in from their Southern vacations, the bees buzz and flowers are in bloom, and the hours of the day are longer and brighter than in winter. With so much excitement, growth, and change in the air, spring is the perfect time of the year for implementing important transitions in our lives, and for starting new adventures. For those hoping to change their scenery this year with a move into a new home, the spring season is certainly one of the best times of the year for planning a moving project.
Of course, long-distance moving, even during the spring, can still present a difficult challenge for the unprepared. Fortunately, our team at 495 Movers is prepared to help you navigate through your upcoming springtime move with these important tips for moving in the spring—to help you make it a positive and successful experience.
1. Get Motivated
Traditionally, spring brings a sense of renewal and energy for many. If you’re one of those people, then you can count on it being easier than ever to turn into a productive, energetic, relocation dynamo. Channel that extra energy you have into making the best moving checklist ever made, and start packing like a pro. If you need help getting organized for your long-distance moving project, don’t hesitate to contact reputable DMV movers for a free consultation with a professional relocation coordinator.
2. Be an Early Bird
During the spring, movers have yet to charge their highest rates since it’s not considered to be peak moving season until the summer starts. This means that compared to moving during the summer, you can expect a good amount of savings. In any case, you should still try to start planning as early as possible to make sure you get the best deal. If possible, schedule your move at least two months early for the best outcome.
3. Hold Out for Quality
Speaking of movers, Spring is the best time to get the best experience possible from a top-rated mover. With proper staffing levels and fair pricing, you have the chance to shop around for a moving company that matches your need when it comes to affordability, reputation, and professionalism. There is nothing more frustrating during the moving process than a mover that delivers sub-par results. Don’t let that be you by securing multiple quotes and reading multiple reviews.
4. Take Advantage of Pleasant Weather
Let’s talk about the season itself for a moment. Compared to its colder and drearier cousin winter spring is basically paradise. The warm sun, gentle breeze, and fresh air all make for perfect moving conditions. However, spring also brings storms and fluctuating temperatures. The secret is to stay up-to-date on the weather forecast so that your move is stress-free—at least when it comes to the conditions outside.
5. Get Your Home Showcase Ready at the Start of Spring
Spring is a very popular season for home buyers hoping to make a new home purchase. To capitalize on this, make sure that your spring-cleaning is done early on to be ready in time for the start of the season (you may want to consider professional cleaners). In addition, make sure your curtains, blinds, and landscaping are all showing off the best facets of your home while letting in natural light to appeal to potential buyers.
6. Plan a Garage Sale
Chances are with your move that you have items you’re throwing or giving away. Thanks to the inherently better conditions spring brings, you can count on a more successful garage sale than you would during other seasons. Plus, with spring cleaning having been completed you will have an updated inventory of what you own making it easier to determine what to keep and what’s not worth it for you.
7. Combine Spring Cleaning with Packing
One of the hardest parts of moving is packing—especially when you’re dealing with years of accumulated belongings, you no longer need. Use the time you’d normally spend deep cleaning your home in the spring to weed out your belongings into four piles: things to keep, things to donate or give away, things to sell, and things to toss in the trash. Doing this will help to streamline your relocation and make it easier to pack up when the time comes to move out.
