As the weather starts getting cooler and the leaves begin changing colors, many people start preparing for the autumnal change of seasons. This is one of the best times of year to make changes and if you’re considering moving or trying to plan out the best time of year to make your move, here are several benefits of moving in fall.
Why Fall is Best For Moving
The greatest thing about Fall is that it’s not too hot or too cold. Autumn temperatures make moving at this time of year optimal so that it’s not stifling hot while carrying boxes, nor will you have to worry about slipping on snow or ice in the winter.
Not As Busy
Because Fall is when school starts, it tends to be one of the more neglected moving seasons. Most people choose to move either in the summer or spring, but moving in the fall can make things like reserving a rental truck or trailer easier.
Convenient for Kids
Moving with kids? Even with school having started in Fall, moving at this time might be easier for them than in other seasons. Because school classes have just started, the transition to a new school at the beginning of the year will be much easier than moving mid-year, or towards the end.
Home for the Holidays
The closer it gets to winter, the more holidays there are to have to plan around. Moving during the holidays can be a pain and let’s not forget how bad traveling can be. Driving in insane traffic or having to fly and being forced to pay twice the normal price for a ticket, makes this time of year extra expensive when moving. By moving in Autumn, this means missing all of the holiday craziness and getting settled before the season even starts, so you can actually enjoy time with loved ones in the comforts of your new place.
Fall is More Fun
As the leaves change colors and the temperatures cool things off, everything somehow seems a little bit better in the world. Take advantage of the festive changes of the season. Your new home will likely feel more comforting during the Fall, and having friends over for a housewarming party and hot chocolate can make your move a social activity. Get to know your new neighborhood and their local activities. And think about decorating early for the holidays to immediately get you ready for the spirit of the next season!
