Does Santa know a good time to move?

Ok so we are all stressing about the holidays and what gifts to get everyone, what should I wear for company parties, who should you invite to the holiday dinner etc… The last thing on your mind is probably moving. I mean, who wants the additional stress? You know who isn’t stressing this time of year? Moving companies, that’s who.

When is the slowest month for Canadian movers?

You see the month of December is the slowest month of the entire year for movers. Movers are basically pretty much just sitting around with lots of extra capacity. Maybe they are fixing their trucks, doing paper work or working hard on their advertising budget; but they are not doing many moves.

Take advantage of the moving slow season.

Advantage moving customer! As with most things in life, the rules of supply and demand come into play heavily here. You see, movers still have to pay for their overhead even when revenue is way down. This is a great opportunity if you are able to move during December or around the holidays. Moving companies are desperate for your business and this means they will be very competitive to earn your business.

Want to test this out? Try getting prices through for December and compare them to dates for March or April.  You will see a huge difference.

Pro Moving Tip:

Take advantage of all the excess boxes, bubble wrap and even Christmas wrapping paper and keep it for your upcoming Move. This time of year you can probably collect all the packing materials you need for your entire Move and save hundreds of dollars on boxes and packing material. Ask your neighbours, friends and family. Collect them from your building recyclables area, or get them from the curb side. You’ll save time and money!

Further advantages of moving in December

There are also other advantages to moving at this time of year. Usually, you have the kids home from school to help out, or maybe you were sly enough to invite some of your out of town family to share in a wonderful, traditional holiday…right after you have them pack and unpack your entire house. After all, things need to get set up perfectly in your new home in order to make that holiday meal as memorable as possible…right?

Most businesses also get pretty slow around this time of year and it’s easier to ask your boss for a couple of days off. It will be appreciated that you are doing your move now so that you can focus on work in the New Year. Just remember to ask at the holiday party after a few libations have been had…then it’s a guaranteed Yes!

Your movers will show up on time with Santa hats on, eager to give you the best service at the best price of the year. It really does make sense to move this time of year if you are able. You will save the most amount of money on your moving costs, and hopefully turn a stressful adventure into a Jolly affair.

Seasons greetings everyone! And safe, happy moving!
