Springtime Means Moving to the Houston and Beyond

Houston Moving and Storage Company Offers Tips to Help You Prepare

The four months from May through August are considered the “peak moving season.” Oddly enough, the statistic is that nationwide, just over a third of moves happen during this one-third of the year. That being said, Spring has a lot going for it as a time to make the shift. It’s easier to house-hunt, pack, and lug when days are lengthening, but before temperatures soar. Moving companies may charge less before the heat hits. Long-distance moving, since it is especially taxing, is especially nice to get out of the way before summer. Families moving within their own school district may schedule moving day during their school’s spring break or the Memorial Day weekend, leaving the summer free. People who like to garden can get settled in time for a bit of spring planting in the new place. For renters, May is a shoulder season, with fewer units on the market and fewer prospective tenants looking to move. For homeowners, May is when home sales hit an annual spike; it’s a great time to buy.
