Spring Moving: Top 5 Perks
It’s that time of year again folks! Time to get your spring cleaning done, and perhaps just in time for your next big move? Spring moving definitely has its benefits, and we’re here to tell you our top five.
1) Spring Moving means better weather
Let’s face it, the weather plays a big role in why it’s easier to move in May than it is to move in February. Snowfall and icy roads are part of what makes moving in winter feel stressful and dangerous. Springtime is significantly drier, which means there’s less risk of having a slip and fall injury or damaging your belongings. Warm weather and sunshine also do wonders for morale. After all, a positive attitude is key to keeping stress levels down.
2) Spring cleaning means less packing
If you’re someone who likes a fresh start once winter finally ends, then you can use that to your advantage. Purging your home of items you don’t need can feel liberating. The best part? You’ll have less to bring with you to your new home. You can also create an inventory list as you clean, which can help you keep track of the things you want to keep. Staying organized can ensure your moving experience is as smooth sailing as possible.
3) Convenient for the family
If you have kids, spring moving might be ideal for you because you can get most of the hard work done while the little ones are at school. Many parents find it challenging to prepare for a move while also looking after their children at the same time. That being said, spring moving can reduce some of the extra responsibility! Depending on what type of job you have, work hours may be more flexible, making it significantly easier to book time off.
5) Moving companies have more availability
It’s a well-known fact that moving companies aren’t as busy in the spring, as most of their clients schedule their move for the summer when they’re on vacation. Spring moving often guarantees you’ll be able to get help when you need it because it’s the time of year when movers are in need of more clients. If you have the means to move in the springtime, it increases your likelihood of finding a reliable moving company that suits your needs.
4) It’s the right time to sell
According to Global News, spring is considered the best time of year to sell your home, one of the reasons being that home buyers usually prefer to settle into a new place before summer officially begins. Buyers may also be more inclined to buy when they can use their tax refunds for the down payment. Data shows that selling in May can get you $60,000 more than if you were to sell in January! Now that’s a good incentive.
Warm weather, available moving companies and potential discounts on moving services are all great reasons to consider moving in spring. Ottawa Valley Movers are here to help make your moving experience as easy and stress-free as possible!
