Moving homes is one of the most exciting chapters of life’s journey. Memories of moving home are so incredibly special. For some people, certain times of the year are more appropriate for making the moving process as enjoyable as possible. For others, moving will be a moment to never forget no matter what time of the year you choose to move. Many last minute movers don’t have the luxury of choosing when to move. However, if you know your job could force a last minute move in the future, it is still a good idea to read the information below for tips on moving during different dates, as well as getting an idea of what time of the year would suit you best if you had the choice. Furthermore, we will also outline solutions for potential problems that come with moving at certain times.



The Benefits

Christmas is one of the most magical times of the year for most families, so why not make one of the first memories in your new home a beautiful Christmas?! Often when we move into our new home, it doesn’t feel like home for a while. This is a problem lots of movers face, so don’t feel alone. 

  • At Professional Sacramento Movers, we have found that moving at the start of the Christmas period reduces the time it takes for people to settle into their new home

If you are able to find all seasons movers that are reliable, moving at the start of the festive period could be a great option for young families. Having your Christmas decorations organized into one box delivered by professional movers will make decorating that bit easier as it saves the usual frantic search for the tinsel!


The Drawbacks

However, there are complications that come with moving during Christmas. Firstly, it reduces the amount of time you have to relax after moving. Moving can be a stressful process, as can planning for Christmas. Therefore, if you move at the start of the festive period you can find yourself decorating and planning for Christmas as soon as you get to your new home. If you are one of these people that loves to be busy all the time, then this may not seem like a problem. 

Hire All Seasons Movers

However, unfortunately the majority of us are not that way inclined and will need a rest after the moving process. Potential solutions to this problem could be to hire reliable all seasons movers who will make the moving process much easier and more relaxing for you. Often, professional movers can do as much of the moving process for you as you require, including the deconstructing and packing of furniture! Another solution is to book a short getaway, such as a spa weekend or yoga retreat, for as soon as you move in so that you can recharge your batteries before you start planning Christmas.

The summer is many people’s favorite time of year – the hot sun, longer days, holidays etc are enough to make even the grumpiest person crack a smile! This also makes it a great time to move as the warm weather puts everyone in good spirits. If you are moving to a home with a garden, the summer is a brilliant time to move. This is due to the fact that you are able to spend lots of time outside in the garden, which reduces the need to unpack everything immediately. As with moving at Christmas, moving during the summer will create special family memories that will be cherished forever. Furthermore, moving at the summertime makes for the perfect neighbor-greeting party! Hosting a summer BBQ with ice cold beers and fruity cocktails is a guaranteed way to become a hit with your neighbors!

However, moving during the summer isn’t only a good time to move for people who have a good garden. If you are moving to an apartment, the summer can work for you as well. Moving can require early mornings or late nights, particularly if you are working a full time job whilst you’re doing it. The summer makes this easier because it is light earlier, and gets dark later, meaning that these early mornings or late nights will still take place under natural light! This is perfect for apartment movers, as natural daylight makes apartments feel even better!



November is often seen as a boring month, hence the rhyme ‘April, June and dull November’! However, this can make it a good time to move as it is less likely to interfere with plans than a move over the Christmas period or summertime would be. However, if you are elderly or disabled the wet weather of November could make moving at this time dangerous. If this applies to you, it is a good idea to hire professional movers that can accommodate you, and try to speak to movers with similar situations to you for recommendations and reviews.


Weekends are the ideal time to move for many people because it fits nicely in with work, and doesn’t force you to take any days off unnecessarily. The weekend is also a time where moods are high. What better excuse to go and party than a Saturday night after you have just moved to your dream home?! Or if you are a family, moving on the weekend gives you time to explore your new town, play some board games, or do whatever you please with your free time in your new home!


The Drawbacks Of Moving On Weekends

However, one of the problems with moving during the weekend is that lots of other people’s preference is to move at this time. This can cause professional movers to increase their prices for weekend movers to ration out the extra demand. 

  • When moving on the weekend, it is important to get multiple quotes from different furniture movers near you to make sure you are being offered a fair price. 

It is still possible to find affordable movers for a weekend move, however it may take a little more research.
