If you are among one of the lucky people who get to decide their own moving dates and even seasons, we are indeed envious. Because that gives you so much freedom of choice that at some point it might even be a bit overwhelming! That is why today we will break down the benefits (or drawbacks) of moving in each different season.
Keep in mind that whatever season you pick for your move, you will still need good packing supplies. That is why we offer you to rent plastic boxes for your move, whenever it happens.
Rock That Summer
Let’s get right into it with summer moves. They are the hottest thing in Chicago, because well, summer isn’t really hot here. But it is warm enough and it is great, and awesome, and people just love to take that time to move. Because the weather is not crappy, and it allows for a nice moving experience. But that also means that moving companies will be straight up filled to the top of their schedules. What does this mean for you? It means you have to plan in advance and definitely book the company of your choice before it’s too late!
Get Crazy In The Winter
Winter moves are nobody’s favorite, but if you like to run the risk of tumbling in the snow while trying to pivot that big sofa, then winter is your choice. However, if you don’t want to do that and you want to sneak up on the weather and approach just the best day to move during that wretched (or festive) season, then we have good news – movers are pretty free during the winter, so you will definitely find one that take care of your things.
Rumor has it that early spring cannot be really distinguished from late winter, but here is the thing – it is not just a rumor. So if you are trying to figure out how to move during the spring, try to schedule that after April. That way you will be certain that at least you have the slight chance of scoring a nice warm day, making the whole moving experience that easier. Again – be sure to check in with your moving company in advance, because during spring people like to book their favorite moving companies.
Fall Is Where It’s At
We left the best for last. Early fall is great, because the weather is still warm enough to allow you to have a nice move, without worrying about freezing to death. However, some students move during the fall so you might want to move the date to mid fall. On the other hand, this means you will have to settle for a bit chilly weather, but it is still not winter, so you may as well settle for an October or November move.
Whatever season you pick, we wish you a safe move and enjoy it as much as you can!
