Benefits of Moving Off-Season

September is just a few days away which means that the height of moving season is coming to a close. While people often opt to move during the warmer months, there are some real benefits of moving off-season. From more flexible scheduling to lower rates: today we will look at the pros of moving during autumn and winter.

  1. Moving companies aren’t as busy: this means that your chances of getting your preferred moving date are higher. It also means that you may not need to book as far in advance if you choose to move within a smaller time frame.
  2. Packing is mostly an indoor activity: packing during the cooler months means that you won’t be missing out on outdoor activities such as camping and swimming. There is nothing worse than being stressed out over a move while your friends and family around you are going on vacation and enjoying the summertime.
  3. Moving rates are likely to be lower: moving companies operate on an ‘as-needed’ basis meaning that moving rates are higher during peak season. Each company is different and will offer different discounts and savings programs.
