Summer Moving Seems Like Fun
Why it’s not a good time to move
More than half of all American apartment moves happen in the summer, and for a good reason. With warm weather and even daylight hours, it's easy to see why most Americans choose this season to move house. Unfortunately, if you're planning to move in the summer, you'll encounter moving companies that are booked months in advance. These companies usually offer "rush" booking with special teams, but those jobs tend to cost you more than if you were to move any other time of the year. A cursory glance at moving company schedules in summer tells you at a glance that there are too many jobs for them, with most days filled up before the season even starts. Sadly, the demand is so high that many moving companies are willing to hire unskilled workers for some of their jobs. This increased demand may result in a lower quality of work overall for anyone intending to move house in summer. Texas Moving USA ensures our moving quality remains at the same reliable level throughout the year.
Why it’s a good time to move
It's not all gloom and doom, though. Moving in the summer ensures that you have the time to pack your stuff without having to worry about rain or biting cold. Kids are also out of school, so you might even have some little helpers to label boxes and make sure they're packed properly. If you're moving to a new neighborhood or state, the summer gives you time to enroll the kids into a new school before the semester starts. Additionally, most US apartments end their yearly lease terms in summer, so you might not even have to break your lease agreement. All of the benefits put together might outweigh the added cost of moving during the summer, but what's acceptable is different for everyone.
