We don’t know about you, but at Fox Moving and Storage we are ready to ditch those winter jackets in favor of shorts and longer days full of budding trees and warmer weather. While the majority of people prep to move during the summer months, there are a lot of overlooked advantages to a Spring move – it really is the perfect time to start fresh as the world around you is blossoming.
Here are five tips to make your spring move a breeze!
Be prepared for the weather!
Springtime weather can be quite finicky, but there are plenty of cool and mild days to take advantage of for a Spring move. That said, one of the most important things to do is to be prepared for rain! A week before your move start scoping out the weather to see what sort of conditions you will be moving in and make necessary adjustments so you don’t get stuck in a downpour right as you are trying to move that fabric couch.
Before making your big Spring move, it is a good idea to start prepping for your move by cleaning, and with it being spring, this is a perfect time to get rid of the old.
Like a lot of other people, we have been inspired lately by Marie Kondo. Here are some simple tips from the queen of decluttering herself:
- Get rid of papers that have been stacking up on desks and drawers
- Tackle categories, not rooms. Start small and build up to the big categories like furniture and larger items.
- Rediscover your style by getting rid of the items in your closet you no longer love.
- Determine if each item sparks joy. If it doesn’t, then it may be time to let it go.
Take advantage of special deals
Before the busy season starts, look for special deals on your Spring move like the online specials through Fox Moving. These can save you time and money as you budget out your move.
Take advantage of spring break
An extra set of helping hands is always nice, but one of the main benefits of packing and moving during spring break is your family gets to help with the process. Change may be harder for younger kids and teenagers and having them own certain parts of the process may make the transition a lot easier for them – especially if the move means moving far away from their friends.
Hire professional movers to help you
And, finally, determine if professional movers are the right fit for you. From helping you pack to storing your belongings until you are ready to move into your new space to free boxes and expert moving advice, there are so many benefits to hiring a team of professionals to help you get through your move with a breeze.
