May to September are the busiest months when it comes to the moving industry. Everybody wants to take advantage of the sunny days that summer brings, that’s why movers are always jam-packed during these months.
But take it from us, it’s more advantageous to move during off-peak season. Here are a few reasons why:
Summer season brings in higher rates. The tricky laws of supply and demand play an important role here. So if you are under a tight budget, opt to schedule your move during off-peak months (before mid-May and after September). Prices can actually go as low as 30 percent during non-summer months.
Here’s another tip, schedule your to the middle of the month. Most people book moves during the start of end of a month.
Efficient movers during cool weather
People think that everybody’s more efficient during summer but in reality, movers hate the hot and humid weather. If you were to lift heavy boxes and furniture for hours then you’d understand how they feel. Moving during fall or winter can be good for more energized and efficient movers.
Wider selection on dates
Since moving schedules are more vacant during off season, you can have your pick of when your move will happen. On the other hand, if you move during summer, you will have to compromise your ideal date for one when the movers have a free schedule. There’s even a chance of you having to re-schedule your entire move to a later week or month due to fully-booked schedules.
Roads are less busy
Summer brings in a lot of traffic in the roads and highways. If you schedule your trip during fall for example, the roads are less bussy which increases your chances for a faster transport and delivery. A faster move!
More attention from the moving company
Think of it this way, a person who is not busy has a longer and clearer attention span. The same goes for moving companies. Because they have less customers and less things to worry about during off-season, you’ll have their full and undivided attention. Therefore, a lower risk in terms of problems and difficulties. Less chances for error.
