Planning a move is a feat any time of year, but the good news is you can make the job easier on yourself! How? The first step is working with a local moving and storage company you trust, but we’ll save that for later. 

Even if you don’t choose to work with household movers like those at Don’s Moving & Storage, you can make your springtime move easier by following these tips regarding:

  • The Weather
  • Planning & Organizing
  • Getting Rid of Unwanted Items
  • Leveraging School Hours
  • Hiring the Right Movers

1. Plan Around the Weather

Springtime brings about warmer weather and longer days, but it also comes with a lot of rainy days. If you’re thinking about moving this spring, be ready to work around the weather. There are a handful of different ways you can do this, including:

  • Checking the Forecast for Moving Week
  • Having Your Movers Wear Booties Indoors
  • Setting Down Tarps in the Entryways
  • …and more!

2. Start Your Preparations Early

When it comes to planning a move, it’s always better to have more time on your side to work out the details. For starters, you should book your movers early if you’re planning on hiring professionals to make sure you have a team available on your moving day.

3. Take Time to Donate or Sell Unwanted Items

As you begin packing up your belongings, take some time to think about what you really want to take with you. This time is already great for a little springtime cleaning, so it’s the perfect opportunity to downsize and get rid of things you don’t want as well. You can even have a yard sale! 

4. Use School Hours to Your Advantage

If you’re getting ready to move this spring and have kids, an easy way to take a bit of stress off your shoulders is to utilize the time that they’re away at school to complete a lot of the packing and any additional housework, so you’re not having to work around additional obstacles along the way.

5. Work with Reputable Movers You Trust
