So you’re all bundled up and ready to move. If you’ve decided to make a move during the winter you’re not alone. The winter season is actually a great time to schedule a move for more than one reason. If you’re thinking about packing up and making a move when there’s snow on the ground, you can count on UMEX Moving & Storage to help you make the process easier. Our movers know that moving house can be a stressful experience so we do whatever we can to make the process as simple as possible.
You probably already know that the summer is a popular time to move. Kids are out of school and sunshine is abundant. Yet don’t discredit Old Man Winter just yet. The colder season can actually be perfect for moving because hiring movers is cheaper. At UMEX Moving & Storage, we offer affordable rates all year round, but winter is an off-season, so you’re bound to rack up some extra savings. If you have enough advanced notice, you can find some great deals with moving companies who have discounts specifically for winter moving specials.
Moving during the winter also means that you’ll probably have your choice of moving dates. Scheduling a move during the summer usually means that you have to compete with hundreds of other people in your area who have moving dates scheduled on the same day. What’s more, moving in the winter is also an ideal time for reaping the benefits of lower real estate costs. Sellers are more motivated to make their homes appeal to winter buyers.
You might not have thought about it, but moving during the winter can also be safer. During the summer months, thousands of cars, trucks, and RVs hit the roads for travel and vacation. This means a greater likelihood of congested roadways and, unfortunately, a higher chance for belongings to be stolen, too.
