From hiring movers and renting a truck to packing boxes and decluttering closets,
Weather: If you live in a cold climate, you’re probably better off avoiding a move smack-dab in the middle of winter. After all, icy roads, treacherous conditions and heavy lifting make for a miserable time.
Work: If you have to move during a busy time at work, then it may be worth the extra bucks to move on a weekend date.
Family concerns: Have school-age children? It may make more sense to move during the summer in order to avoid a chaotic school year.
Of course, not all of us have the option to move at the most ideal time. The “best” time for you will really depend on: location, weather, budget, family matters and flexibility at work. Once you have these figured out, you’re on your way to a successful move.
