Planning a move can get very complicated; with so many details to organise it is easy to overlook that there may be a good time for moving house to make everything easier. Moving house services are available throughout the year, but you may be surprised that choosing the right time, day, month and season could have a significant impact on your move.
While not everyone is a morning person, it is certainly a good time for moving house. The cooler air makes it easier to get everything prepared for the move. The earlier you get started, the less likely that you’ll get caught in the midday sun. After all, you don’t want to be carrying furniture when the sun starts to really beat down on you. Additionally, getting started earlier will give you more time to settle in before your first night in your new home.
Getting an early start can also allow you to beat peak hour traffic, so you don’t add the frustration of congestion into your moving stresses. This can also save you hours of travelling time if you need to make multiple trips.
When you’re making the decisions for your moving house services, Perth homeowners may overlook the importance of the best day. However, the day of your move can be a massive influencing factor on other aspects of the move. Generally, weekends may help to avoid problems with work and school obligations, but you’ll face a higher demand for moving house services. Instead, try to set your move on a weekday; it may require taking a little time off work, but it can make the moving process easier. Additionally, if you find any issues when you arrive at your new house, it is a standard working day for tradespeople, so you won’t face hefty out of hours charges.
The Time of the Month
Since the majority of people wait until the end of their lease, the busiest periods for moving are the beginning and end of the month. So, to avoid higher moving services demand, the best moving day is mid month.
While summer may leave you free of school and work obligations, other people are in the same situation. This means that you not only face a higher demand for moving services, but you’re likely to see more cars on the road as people hit the beach, shops and other activities. This can tie you up on the road, wasting precious hours if you need to make multiple trips. Additionally, the heat of summer days can sap your energy when you’re trying to pack up boxes and move furniture, leaving you feeling wiped out.
A better idea is to try to move in autumn. You won’t have the problems of colder weather associated with winter, but you should find everything quieter for a smoother move.
