You have probably heard that many people move during the summer, which makes it a peak season as far as moving is concerned. However, do you know why the summer is the peak moving season? Here are a few reasons moving companies, even long distance moving services, have a lot of business in the summer:
It Is the End of the School Year
The summer is the end of the school year, which means you have the opportunity to move when the kids are out on vacation. This has several benefits; for one, if you have old enough kids, they can help you with some of the moving tasks or activities such as packing and cleanup. Apart from that, it is also less disruptive, in terms of their education, for the kids to move at the end of the school year instead of the middle. In some places, even finding a good school is difficult during the school year.
The Weather Is Conducive To Moving
Another advantage of summer moving is that the weather is good for most of the activities associated with moving, including driving. You don't have to worry about icy roads or snow blockages on the road. Loading and unloading, which have to be done outdoors, are particularly efficient during the summer season, especially if you start early in the morning.
Many People Take Their Paid Leave in the Summer
It is not just the kids who tend to be free during the summer seasons; even many adults find themselves free during this season. For example, many of those who have paid holidays at work can often take their free days during the summer. You can do the same thing so that you don't have to ask your employer for some days off in addition to your usual holidays.
The Property Market Is Good
In most places, the availability (or lack) of homes in the market is a seasonal affair. Specifically, you have a better chance of landing a great house during the summer season than, say, during the winter season. This is true both for rentals and purchases. Therefore, if you don't have a home waiting for you in your target destination, you have a better chance of finding one during the summer than during other seasons.
If you plan on moving during the summer, this means that you need to start planning and book your preferred moving company early enough. Otherwise, you may find that the best companies are booked on your target dates.
