Spring is the Best Time to Get a Move On for Your Long Distance Movers

Like a hummingbird, your long distance movers can help you fly into a spring move.

Like a hummingbird, your long distance movers can help you fly into a spring move.

The flowers are in full bloom. The days are getting longer. And you are moving into a new home two provinces away. Don’t fret. Spring is actually a good time to book your moving and storage providers.

In Canada, the best time of year to schedule a move is from mid-March to mid-June. This is due to a number of factors that make sorting, packing and setting up for your long distance movers a little less stressful this time of year.


Here are some of the reasons why it’s a good time to move when the tulips raise their heads:


It’s easier to offload your stuff

One of the worst stressors is how you’re going to pack everything to fit for your house move. The solution is you don’t have to. Spring is the time to offload all those items you no longer use or need.

Many bargain hunters seek out such items at garage, yard, and moving sales. Don’t have time to hold your own sale? Many charitable organizations hold garage and yard sales in the spring and will happily accept your belongings.


You can usually book time off for your house move

In comparison to the other seasons, especially at Christmastime or summer, spring tends to allow for more time to book time off work or school.

If you have children, making a long distance move during Spring Break, Easter, or on the May long weekend is a feasible option. It will give your kids time to make the transition if you are moving them to a new community and/or school.


It’s safer to travel

Although your long distance movers will be hauling your belongings to your new destination, you still have to make the trip. If you’re driving, it’s good to know those winter months have melted away, clearing the roads and highways, and allowing you to move safely.

Spring is also a great time to go on a road trip. You can avoid summer traffic and visit some of those destinations you have been itching to check out.


T’is the season to start fresh

In the natural world, spring is a time of renewal, rebirth and rejuvenation – the rhythm of life, so to speak. So it’s natural that we follow the same patterns as the days become longer and life sprouts up around us.

It is also a time when we make transitions in our lives, from simple things as cleaning house, updating our wardrobes, or going to the gym, to more major transitions such as hiring household movers to start life in a new community.

Make a trip out of your spring move. Why not visit these Canadian attractions and let your long distance movers do the rest.
