Advantages & Disadvantages of Moving in the Fall

Moving in the FallBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving, at any time of the year, is usually equal elements exciting and hectic. Moving in the autumn offers its own distinctive benefits as well as obstacles. Numerous families have discovered that moving in the autumn season results in a smoother, more enjoyable transition; other people, as a result of particular circumstances, choose to delay until a better time. As professional movers in Tulsa, we would like to discuss with you a handful of advantages and disadvantages regarding relocating in the autumn season:


1. The weather is generally nice

If you decide to move in the summer months, you will likely have to address high temps as well as humidity. Quite simply, you'll perspire a lot when you load and unload your belongings. Alternatively, the winter season conditions can make moving frigid, unpleasant, and in many cases unsafe.

The autumn is a superb time to move since you avoid extremes of hot or cold. Autumn temperatures are generally nice, and you likely will not have to think about wintry or slippery driving conditions.

2. Professional movers could have cheaper prices

The summer season is typically the peak season for moving. Considering that fall comes after peak season, you might be able to get a better deal when hiring a moving company in Tulsa.

3. Professional movers could have better availability

An additional advantage of moving through the fall is that the moving company could be in a better spot to allow for your moving dates, considering that their calendar is not as stuffed.


1. It could be more challenging to sell your house

If you don't currently rent and have not sold your house yet, then autumn may be a difficult time of the year to get a buyer to close on it. However, we must concur that in the current market, this might not be too much of an issue.

2. It can be tricky to "settle into" a new house just before the holiday season

Many people are absorbed by the holiday season, either on an individual or a business level. Moving to a different place is often anxious at any time and might end up being even more so right before the most hectic time of the year (at least for lots of people). Additionally, if you have young children, you'll have to really coordinate the move to enable them to transition into a new location with minimal stress - and fall might not be a good time to make that materialize.

3. The weather might be erratic

Fall conditions are generally pleasant, and without any extremes in temp or humidity. Nevertheless, there is still a component of unpredictability relating to autumn weather patterns. For instance, should you be moving to or from a northern climate, there's always the possibility that an unexpected snowstorm will hit at the end of autumn - potentially in November, or even October! Additionally, there is a chance that you may have to deal with an abrupt heat wave, or unanticipated drops in temperature.

Keep in mind, regardless of whether you elect to move in the fall or not, you should always look at using the aid of professional movers to make your transition as seamless as possible.

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
