The weather is warming, the snow is melting, and it is making it easier for us to move around the outside world. Now would be the perfect time to move.
Let us give you some tips if you decide to take advantage of this beautiful change in weather.
Get Started Early
Moving to a new home is a big deal, and will require a lot of planning and preparation. With that in mind make sure you avoid the worry of not knowing if you can get the moving company you want by making sure you secure a reputable moving company early. Planning a move during a weekday may also help as most plan their moves during the weekend. If you have children than Spring Break may be ideal as well as it will improve with their integration into their new home and reduce the number of things you will have to do that day by not having to worry about them getting and being picked up from school.
Clean it Up
You may not be planning on taking everything with you to your new home, in that case, you can donate these belongings, try and sell them at a garage sale, or if you don’t think anyone will want them to throw them out.
After moving to your new location make sure to give it a good, thorough cleaning. This will ensure you have a truly fresh start.
Watch out for Pollen
With Spring comes the inevitable arrival of everyone’s favorite eye and nose irritant, pollen. Pollen can seriously mess up your plans for a successful move day, either by covering and contaminating your stuff and negatively affecting the health and comfort of those partaking in the move. Make sure to monitor what the pollen count will be for that day in case allergy medication is needed.
Understand the Weather
The weather of spring can be quite odd, but still pretty easy to understand when these changes will occur. Expect chilly mornings and possible afternoon showers. In the same vein as monitoring the pollen count, make sure you are up to date with knowing the weather for that day.
At Southwest Movers we love helping people move. If you are younger and not attached to an area, we highly recommend moving somewhere crazy and getting to know people somewhere new. But if you are looking at staying close to family or jobs, it doesn’t hurt to find smaller communities and increasing your commute. IF you have any questions at all, give us a call!
