Tips for Moving in the Spring

According to most Canadians, the best time of the year to move within the country is during the spring season. The weather, school schedules and real estate markets are all at their peak during this time. If you’re considering moving within Canada, it is highly recommended to make the move during the spring.

Top Reasons for Spring Moving

No matter which province or neighborhood you’re moving to, it is always most pleasant during the spring. The spring season is considered to be between March 20 and June 20, which is when the markets are high and moving is most efficient. Here are the top reasons why Canadians suggest moving during the spring:

  • The school calendar is ideal. Moving can be very taxing for children of all ages. They have to become accustomed to new neighborhoods, make new friends, and get used to a new school curriculum. Moving to a new neighborhood right after the end of the school year can be the best time for children to grow accustomed to their new town. It will also give you time to register them for their classes, memorize the bus routes, and help them make new friends.
  • There are no big holidays in the spring. Moving during a holiday season can be stressful for a lot of reasons. A lot of big companies may be closed, and a lot of schools and offices host parties and events that can fill up your schedule. Wait until the spring when you have a spacious calendar. It’s also easier to request time off from work during this time, since not every coworker will be requesting the time off as well.
  • Spring is a time of new beginnings. The traditional phrase “spring cleaning” can come to life during a move. Spring has always been the time for renewal, and it is a chance to refresh all aspects of your life. Moving during this time can be a great way to get a head start on new opportunities and clear space in your mind for an upcoming project or adventure.

The Best Spring Moving Tips

After learning why moving during the spring is such a great idea, you may be inspired to start taking action immediately. Take heed of moving tips that can help your spring transition be stress-free and positive:

  • Prices are lower because it is not peak moving season. By acting fast, you can lock in prices that are lower than a typical mover or truck rental company would charge. Prices are often cheaper at the beginning of the year than they are in the summer or fall.
  • Top-rated movers are available. The best professional movers will likely have open availability, and you can snag these movers at a lower cost too.
  • If you’re planning on moving during the spring, you should also be selling during this time, as well. Sellers can make a fortune during the spring months, as most buyers (such as you) are looking to move in and secure a spot in their new neighborhood before the hustle and bustle of late summer. The season is an ideal time for adults and children alike to settle in and use the upcoming summer to get used to the new house.
  • Host a large garage sale. Take “Spring Cleaning” to the next level. Use this as an opportunity to get rid of any old items you don’t want or need anymore, and see if you can make a few dollars by selling it to locals. Some items aren’t worth moving to a new home, and you may find yourself with more things than you know what to do with. A garage sale can give you some added finances to put directly into budgeting for your new spring home.

With beautiful weather, the end of the school season, and a discount on most moving expenses, the spring is quite the beneficial time to be moving. Consider the early months for a seamless and stress-free move.

  • Thank you very much for contacting me about my move. Due to the urgency of planning my move, I did happen to already book with someone else who I happened to connect with a bit sooner than you. But I am really impressed with the many great quotes from high-quality movers that I received so quickly via your service, so I want you to know that I will certainly be keeping you in mind for any future moving needs for myself or my friends.
    With thanks and best regards,
