Nearly 80% of all moves take place between April and early September (peak season), making fall the off-season for most Henrico moving companies. College students are already settled into their new apartments by September, and families who were moving school districts have already unpacked and began the new school year. Moving in fall gives you more flexibility because you can choose a date that works for you, rather than being forced to move on the one random Tuesday where your local Henrico movers can fit you in. There will simply be more of those Saturday appointments available if you move in October instead of July.
One of the best things about moving in the Fall is the fair weather. The transition to autumn leaves (no pun intended) a slight crispness in the air so that you won’t be sweating while carrying boxes, nor will you have to worry about dealing with snow or ice as you move. You may be more likely to have friends and family that are willing to help with your local Henrico move as it won’t be as uncomfortable on them either.
As the leaves change colors and pumpkin becomes an ingredient in just about everything, everything somehow seems a little bit better in the world. Take advantage of the changes in scenery and make a road trip out of it, seeing how different areas are affected by fall. Your new home in Henrico is also likely to feel more comforting during the autumn season helping you adapt easily. You may also want to make your local Henrico move a social activity. Bake fall treats to enjoy as you pack or head out on the road and sip your favorite holiday beverage the whole way there. Fall is all about feeling cozy and comfortable which will make your move feel exactly the same way.
Moving in the warmer months can be expensive, especially if you are moving during peak season which is the busiest time of the year. The fall season brings the opportunity for low rates and specials since fall is typically not the busiest season for most Henrico moving companies. Many Henrico moving companies will decide to advertise special fall promotions which can help you save money during your local Henrico move and add another benefit to moving during the fall of the year.
From packing supplies to moving boxes, it’s easier to find the resources you need during the fall season. Often times, during the summer peak moving season, stores have to constantly restock moving supplies and inventory, causing delays in your local Henrico move if you need them right away. Moving during the fall allows you to avoid a lot of the summer moving rush that often accompanies the end of the school year or people choosing the warmer summer months to complete their move.
