No matter what time of year you find yourself moving in, it’s important to make sure you’re well prepared for your move and all aspects that come with it. This includes making sure you have a plan in place regarding all of the variables involved in your move, or at least just booking your moving company in advance and not last-minute.
What to Expect When Booking a Fall Move
A lot of people who move in the summer already know that booking moving companies during peak months needs to be done well ahead of time in order to make sure you have your reservation in and that your company isn’t already booked and busy, as is often the case with summer moves. However, this is also very important during the fall months. Prepare for your fall move by making sure you have a move in plan ready to go and by having your moving service booked well ahead of time.
Extension of Peak Season
People generally regard the summer months as being the typical height of moving season, but moving companies’ peak times of business actually often extend further than that. Peak moving season is usually from around April to around September. With this in mind, this year, moving season will definitely extend beyond the typical season. No matter what your current housing situation is, if you’re thinking of making a fall move, make sure your moving company is scheduled and that your moving plan is good to go.
Whether you’re looking to sell or buy a home this autumn, make sure you have a clear vision of when you’re looking to move in order to plan accordingly. If you’re buying, you might jump at the chance for a quick closing process, but make sure to have your vision set so you can schedule movers ahead of time and have a plan to actually relocate your items to your new space. If you close quickly, but cannot schedule movers due to the extension of peak season, it can cause a lot of delay and other issues.
Additionally, many people who are currently renting and have their furniture or things currently in storage due to unforeseen circumstances might find themselves buying homes in the fall. This will also result in higher bookings than usual during the fall season, as they will need to relocate not only their stored items, but their regular items as well! Make sure to get ahead of the curve as we head into fall by allowing yourself a good chunk of time to coordinate your movers in order to have a successful and smooth move without any delays.
Book Ahead of Time
Since moving season is extending farther than usual into the fall months this year, it’s important to allow yourself time to schedule your movers, and have a buffer time period to get everything squared away. If you have a move in date too close to the current date, you might not be able to get your move scheduled as promptly as your closing date due to demand.
Though often only considered once a new place is secured or a new lease or mortgage is signed, having a moving plan in place well ahead of time is imperative to both the success of your move, and in making sure there are movers available to aid you along the way. This fall, prepare for your move properly by booking EE Ward Moving & Storage for all of your relocation and storage needs.
