Book Your Movers ASAP
The moving industry doesn’t get too busy until summer, but as we head into mid-spring is crucial to book your movers as soon as possible to be safe. The other great thing about moving in the spring? Usually there are lower costs associated with moving before the end of May – it’s a win-win!
Organize Your Move
When the weather is gorgeous, you don’t want to be spending your days inside packing up your belongings. Before you start the packing process, make a plan and make sure to stick to it.
Select a date to move from your old place to your new ones. If possible try to stay way from the 1st, 15th, and 30th of the month, as these are big moving days. If you have children, consider their schedules for school and sports.
Make a to-do list of everything you need to get done before your move. This can include everything from packing, making repairs, and cleaning!
Create a budget that you will stick to throughout your move, because let’s face it: moving is expensive.
Take inventory of all of your belongings before the movers come. This way, if anything gets broken or goes missing during the move, you know exactly what it is right away.
Start packing as soon as possible. Don’t waste away those gorgeous spring days inside!
Get Ready to Clean, Clean, Clean
Since spring is already the idea time to be doing a deep clean of your home, the moving process on top can make things a little more hectic. Before you start packing up your belongings, do a deep clean of your space – get rid of the items you no longer need, clean every nook and crany, and be prepared to do it all again once everything is out of your home!
Keep An Eye on the Weather
Spring weather can be unpredictable. If you tend to get allergies, make sure to keep an eye on the weather so you can act accordingly and avoid having to take a few days off from packing to recuperate.
