Spring, a time for change and new beginnings!

Spring, a time for change and new beginnings. Flowers springing to life, new born animals and brighter evenings can make us feel restless as we anticipate the lighter and warmer evenings. If you are considering putting your house on the market and making that all important move, this is the perfect time to set your plans in motion.

You may be thinking, is spring a really good time to move? What are the pros and cons? And am I even organised enough to be considering this? Don’t worry, we’ve got your back, we’ve put together this simple guide to help make things that little bit easier.

So why consider moving in the spring? Well…

Mild weather;
The weather conditions from late March to Early June tend to be nice and warm, the various hazards of moving in the winter are no longer a concern and the sweltering summer heat is not a factor yet. This makes the laborious moving tasks easier to complete and greatly reduces the risks involved in the relocation process.

Lower moving costs;
It is no secret that the moving costs soar up during the summer period- it is the busiest moving season after all. This means that you can easily save some of your hard-earned money by avoiding the crowd, plus you are guaranteed to grab those discounted prices.

Quality moving service;
As spring isn’t a common time to relocate, due to fewer moves taking place, no moving company will be fully booked and therefore you will be able to choose among the best movers. This will allow you to find a trustworthy company that perfectly suits your needs and requirements and are most of all experienced.

Convenient moving date;
The smaller the number of residential moves, the more moving dates there will be available- it’s as simple as that. This also means that you won’t have to change your plans and adjust the available options, but you will be able to perform your move exactly when you wish to.

Better chance to sell your home for a profit;
Spring is widely considered to be the best season for selling a home- anyone who is looking to buy a new property will prefer to make the deal in the spring. Also a house looks much more appealing in the spring- lush greenery, beautiful flowers and that all important spring clean will have been done.

How to organise your spring move;

  • Book a moving company as early as possible
  • Schedule your book for early spring
  • Plan your move for the early afternoon
  • Take advantage of any school holidays
  • Make the most of your spring clean
  • Get rid of any unwanted items
  • Keep an eye on the weather
