Advantages & Disadvantages of Moving in the Fall

Moving in the FallBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving, at any time of the year, may be equal portions enjoyable and hectic. Moving in the autumn offers its own unique perks and obstacles. Many households are finding that relocating in the fall months leads to a better, more pleasant transition; others, as a result of special conditions, elect to delay until a better time. Being professional movers in Little Rock, we would like to discuss with you a few advantages and disadvantages of relocating in the fall season:


1. The weather is usually good

If you opt to move during summertime, you may most likely have to deal with high temps along with humidity. Quite simply, you will sweat a lot while you load and unload your belongings. On the other hand, the winter season conditions can make moving nippy, unpleasant, and in many cases dangerous.

The autumn is a wonderful time to move as you stay away from extremes of hot or cold. Fall temps are typically pleasant, and you probably will not have to think about wintry or frozen driving conditions.

2. Professional movers may have lower rates

The summer season is typically the peak season for moving. Since autumn comes after peak season, you may be able to get a better price when hiring a moving company in Little Rock.

3. Professional movers may have more availability

Another advantage of moving through the fall is that the moving company could be in a better position to accommodate your moving dates, because their schedule is not as full.


1. It could be more difficult to sell your residence

If you don't at the moment rent and haven't sold your residence yet, then autumn may be a tough time of the year to get a home buyer to close on it. Although, we must say that in the current market, this might not be too much of a problem.

2. It can be hard to "settle into" a new house right before the holiday season

Most people are consumed with the holidays, either on an individual or a business level. Moving to a different place is usually anxious at any time but could end up being even more so right in front of the most busy time of the year (at least for many individuals). Furthermore, in case you have children, you will need to really coordinate the move so that they can transition into a new location with marginal tension - and autumn probably are not the optimum time to make that transpire.

3. The weather may be unpredictable

Fall weather conditions are typically enjoyable, and free from extremes in temperature or humidity. Even so, there is still an element of volatility relating to fall weather patterns. For example, should you be relocating to or from a northern climate, there's always the chance that an unforeseen snowstorm may strike at the end of autumn - potentially in November, or even October! Additionally, there is a chance that you will have to deal with an abrupt heat wave, or abrupt drops in temperature.

Needless to say, whether you opt to move in the autumn or not, you should always look at enlisting assistance from professional movers to make your transition as seamless as is possible.

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
