If there is one thing that we love about Spring over here at Champion Movers, it’s that Spring is one of the best times of the year for moving homes. The weather is nice, flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and everything feels new again. On top of that, moving in the Spring generally means that you have a leg up on everyone else who waits until the summer and fall to relocate. This means that you can generally get better rates, more flexible moving dates and an easier time moving with that great weather! That being said, in order for your Springtime move to go off without a hitch, you will need to keep these essential tips for moving in Spring in mind!
1 | Make Plans Early
Many people tend to move around more during summer so that they can resettle before the school year or in the fall just in time to get those last-minute tax incentives for moving. This means that moving in Spring can help you get a headstart on others but you should make your plans early to get the best deals on moving trucks and preferential moving dates!
Making your moving plans early can help you get competitive prices on trunk rentals and the most experienced movers with minimal schedule conflicts due to the lower volume of moves. By making your plans early you can find top-rated movers with a great reputation like Champion Movers for an affordable price!
2 | Transfer Your Utilities
There’s nothing worse than waiting until the last minute to switch your utilities and services over to your new home or apartment only to spend the first few days without the internet or electricity altogether. Luckily it’s easy to let your providers know what day you will be moving on so that they can be prepared to switch over all of your utilities at the right time.
3 | Use the Weather to Your Advantage
As we mentioned, moving in Spring is really easy in the Spring because generally speaking, the weather is a lot nicer. The days are longer and warmer and everyone is just more inclined to be outside. You can really use this to your advantage to make your Spring move easier because the warm weather will give you the opportunity to organize a garage sale to help you declutter and get rid of bulky items that you aren’t excited about taking to your new place.

4 | Be Prepared for Moving in Spring
While moving in Spring has plenty of positives, you still want to be prepared for any curveballs that come your way when moving. Moving in Spring means that you have to be prepared for Spring allergies, Spring showers, and coordinate with school schedules if you have kids. All of which you can take care of with a little planning and foresight! Contact Champion Movers today to get your Spring move started today!
