National Moving Month is Here!

It’s May! If you’re like the thousands of other people out there, you know what that means! It’s National Moving Month again!

Why has May been declared as National Moving Month? Well, the explanation to that question are that college students are done with their studies for the year and are ready to head back home, primary school kids are getting out for summer break so it’s less of a headache to move without removing them from their day-to-day groove, and gorgeous weather is here to bring you a simple moving day. This means that moving companies are going to start getting booked up and their trucks are going to start moving people long distances or right down the road here soon.

Armed with this info, if you are planning a move here in May, there are a few things that you should look at. This includes:
  • Be sure that you plan as far in advance as you can. This will provide you with the ability to smoothly adjust for all of the likely road blocks that can pop up.
  • Book your move with your moving company as far in advance as possible also. This will help you ensure that you’ll get the support you need on the days you need it without having to pay a lot more. Since this is the start of our busy season, it’s really critical to reserve your moving truck and crew now!
  • Try to avoid moving during the end of the month. This is the normal time that folks like to try to plan their moves since their leases tend to go from the start of the month to the last. If you can get in a weekend earlier, there’s a much better chance of being able to secure a moving crew to help you with the moving.
  • Plan for the weather. Just because April Showers are a thing of the past doesn’t mean rain can’t pop up suddenly to interrupt your move.
