What Are the Best Times of Year for a Move?

Yet, life has its own unpredictable timing, and it is sometimes impossible to be choosy about planning your move. But, if you are one of the lucky few who has the luxury of preparing for your next move with plenty of time beforehand, selecting the best time to move to Tulsa can save you a lot of headaches, hassle, and even expense! This is definitely true if you plan on hiring professional movers to assist you, as booking your move over a non-peak time of year will make it simpler to find a company that can accommodate your scheduling needs for a competitive rate.

The Best (And Worst) Times of Year to Schedule a Move to Tulsa

It is probably not super shocking to learn that the worst time of year to schedule a move is generally during late May, June, July and August. Basically, this is when the majority of families with children are already attempting to move, specifically if their children are in school (as many parents prefer their children to commence at a new school at the beginning of an academic year). This translates to moving company's books tend to be booked up more quickly during the summer months, so unless you schedule far ahead, you may have a difficult time getting moving help. Pricing during peak-season for moving companies also tends to be higher due to demand.

With this in mind, the best time to move is normally during the winter months. Business for professional movers during this time has frequently gotten slower, especially with the holidays, so finding a mover to help you should be simpler (even if you are moving at the last minute).

In addition to moving in the late fall and winter months, you may also want to consider scheduling your move during the middle of the month if at all possible. That is because the very beginning and end of the month tend to be busier for professional movers based on larger demand, as many lease rentals come to an end on the 1st of the month. This means that most people moving to or from a lease are desiring to move at the very beginning or end, rather than right in the middle of the month.

Finally, while it may not be doable for everyone's work schedules, scheduling a middle of the week move instead of a weekend relocation can also be a wonderful way to save green and bypass schedule conflicts with a mover. If you work at a flexible place of employment or can take some time off to move in the middle of the week, the savings can accrue!

Other Important Things to Consider

Aside from planning your relocation to Tulsa to save money and ensure easier scheduling with a moving company, there are some other things to think about that could sway the timing of your upcoming relocation. Depending on the climate where you live, for instance, moving towards the very of December might mean moving in snowy, cold, or otherwise yucky weather conditions. Also, moving over a major travel holiday (such as Christmas) might mean additional cars on your path, which could delay your move. But, this is more likely to be a problem if you are taking on a long-distance move rather than a local one, so it might really depend on your unique situation.

When possible, a little bit of planning and thinking ahead can go a long way in saving money (and your sanity!) when getting ready for a move. And by taking your unique needs into consideration, you can ultimately figure out the best time for you to move.
