Spring is a favorite season for many, and for good reason. From the beautiful splays of coloring that pop up with the budding flowers to the fact that summer is right around the corner, spring can bring us all out of hibernation. While this a popular time of year for diving into spring cleaning (both inside and out) as well as getting outdoors and reconnecting with friends, spring also happens to be the time of the year when many people move. Whether you have recently bought your first home or are renting, moving can be somewhat overwhelming. However, there are a handful of steps you can take to ensure your move goes smoothly this spring:
- Start Organizing Early
We’ve all heard the term of phrase “the early bird catches the worm”, and this couldn’t be more accurate when it comes to getting ready for your move. By doing your best not to procrastinate and instead start organizing and going through your belongings well before your move, you will have a far better chance of staying on task and not getting too stressed out.
- Check the Weather and Pollen Count
Depending on where you live, allergies can be intense during the spring months. Keep an eye on the weather and daily pollen count in your area and plan accordingly. If you have some flexibility with your moving day, try to adjust your move for days that are not super windy and have a lesser chance of giving you allergies.
- Consider a Garage Sale
Spring is a popular time of year for garage sales, as many of us are ready to get ‘out with the old and in with the new’. Once you’ve got your spring cleaning taken care of, see if any of your neighbors or friends are interested in putting on a garage sale with you. Having multiple parties involved will help alleviate the pressure and will bring more people to your house. This is wonderful way to get rid of some belongings before your move, and make an extra buck or two!
We hope these tips give you a good place to start when it comes to moving this spring. And remember, a knowledgeable local moving company may give you that extra advantage to ensure your move goes off without a hitch.
