Our family is planning to move back to our home sometime next year. I do not have any date in mind yet but I am wondering what the best time to move would be? Can anyone tell me what I should take into consideration to help me to decide when to move?

Moving is not easy any time of the year. But, if you have the flexibility to pick the time of the year when you want to move, then it generally has to be during the summer. The summer is typically the busiest season for movers. However, depending on your level of comfort and your family’s requirements you can easily decide, based on several factors, the best time for your move.

If you have children in school, it is ideal to work around their calendar and move after their school year so that they will have ample time to say their goodbyes to their old friends, prepare for their new school year and adapt to their new neighborhood while you are unpacking the belongings. Thus, summer is the right time for your move.

If you are considering celebrating your holidays at your new home, plan your move at least a few months ahead of time so that you can meet your new neighbors and get involved with your new community. This will make you feel more comfortable during the holidays

If you are looking for the perfect time to move on a lower moving budget and save some money, then winter or late fall months are the way to go. These months are considered to be the off-peak season for movers and the moving rates are usually lower
