Benefits of Moving During Winter Months
During the winter months it may seem like it would be difficult to move when you consider the holidays and the cold, rainy weather. While there are more ideal months to move, it turns out that there are a number of advantages to moving in the winter, especially here in California.
Here are some Atlas Transfer & Storage tips and benefits of moving during the winter season:
Benefit: The Weather Is Not All Bad
No matter which month you decide to move, there will always be a chance of rain. Of course, we also know that during the summer months the weather may be extremely hot. Many winter days are clear and cool and should not be excluded when you are picking a time to move in Southern California.
Benefit: Availability of Movers
Since many people would rather not move in the winter, it may be a great time to schedule our professional moving services. The chances of being able to move on the exact date you want will be more feasible in the winter, because movers are not as busy as they are during the spring, summer, and fall months. Most people move during the months that school are not in session so this creates a higher demand, which leads to higher costs for the homeowner or renter. This can also lead to little or no time for additional storage requirements that can be costly.
Tip: Have a Back-Up Plan
Since the weather is unpredictable it is always best to have a back-up plan. Depending on how severe the weather is, the moving company may have no choice but to re-schedule your relocation. If possible, have a back-up plan for short term accommodations and/or storage in case you need to move out, but cannot move in to your new place because of an unexpected weather delay. If you are renting, speak to your new and current landlords to make sure that if the weather turns bad, you can delay the move for a few days if possible. If the weather is going to be very hot, you will want to consider your perishable items and consider your pets, plants and elderly during the relocation.
Remember, do not let the season interfere with your move. Winter months can be full of clear and cool days to relocate your belongings. Keep in mind where your destination is and what the weather will be on the other end. It could be dry as the desert when you leave, but could be raining heavy when you arrive in San Diego.
