Spring Moving Tips


Spring is the perfect time to do a residential move, whether in-state or out-of-state or moving from your apartment into your first home. How you handle the details of your move will determine the type of experience that you will have during the process. Moving can be an arduous and stressful task that requires planning, and spring brings mild temperatures- a good time to spring into action. Here are some useful tips to help you when moving in the spring.

Move While the Weather is Good

Take advantage of the wonderful spring weather. Though spring can bring plenty of sunshine, it can also bring unpredictable weather. Do not take spring weather for granted because
unfavorable climatic changes occur very quickly. Temperatures fluctuate- it may be sunny one minute and raining the next without any warning, or a week of sunshine could be followed by
severe thunderstorms, with lightning, flooding, and tornadoes. Be mindful of weather predictions, and if rain is in the forecast on moving day, cover furniture and boxes with plastic wrap.

Secure a Reputable Moving Company

A top-rated professional moving company should be a priority. You want to find a moving company that offers great, competitive moving rate since spring is a time when moving
companies’ hires generally drops, causing them to reduce their rates. In essence, ensure that the moving company is affordable and their price is within your budget, a good reputation for peace
of mind and professionalism, which is necessary should any problems arise during the transition.

Be Mindful of Spring Allergies

Spring is allergy season and itchy eyes, a runny nose, coughing, and sneezing are things that you do not want interfering with your relocation plans. Pollen is in the spring air and if you or
members of your family are allergy prone, have your allergy medication handy. A good rule is to avoid the hours between 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. when pollen density is usually high.

Avoid Spring Fatigue

Spring fatigue may take the spring out of your steps when you really need to get a jump on relocating. Drowsiness, fatigue, and weakness are all symptoms of spring fatigue that occurs
when the body tries to adjust to the new season after running low on certain hormones, such as serotonin during the winter. With more sunlight hours, serotonin levels increase, the body tries to
kick-start into high gear, but the adjustment process causes fatigue, you feel less motivated and the vitality to carry out your move is absent. Getting a handle on spring fatigue will help you to stay on top of the moving process.
