Moving in the spring? Moving experts say that’s a smart decision! You’re likely to find some of the best pricing of the year, and it’s easier to book expert CT residential movers during spring. If you’re taking advantage of the benefits of moving before the summer rush, here are some tips to keep in mind as you plan your relocation.
Pre-Move Garage Sale
Spring has sprung and with it come those in search of a bargain! Take advantage of the year’s first wave of yard sale enthusiasts by selling some of the items you don’t want to bring to your new home. A yard sale is a great way to downsize—and you can make a few bucks to offset the cost of hiring a CT household mover!
Coughing and Sneezing and Itching—Oh, My!
For everyone singing spring’s praises there is an allergy-prone person who is busy stocking up on Claritin and tissues. If you’re moving locally, you already have a good idea of how your family fares during allergy season.
If you’re moving a bit further, you’ll want to check on what the pollen counts are like in your new area. Keep in mind that even someone who never had a problem with allergies can have issues in a new place, so it’s a good idea to be ready just in case.
That Unreliable Spring Weather
Spring is fickle. One day you’ll be soaking up the sun and watering your newly-planted flowers and vegetables. The next day, you’ll be donning a parka while you try to save those plants from the frost. If you’re from CT, you already understand that spring doesn’t always mean warm weather.
If you’re coming from a warmer climate, this might be more of a shock. A spring snowfall isn’t even unusual, so be sure to have clothing for various temperatures handy and have a back-up plan for the kids and pets in case it’s too cold to order them outside to play while your CT moving company does their thing.
If you’re moving plants, you love those plants. Since you love those plants, it’s a good idea to allow for the possibility that you may have to care for them indoors for a few weeks until all danger of frost has passed. In some parts of Connecticut, the last frost occurs as late as mid-May.
You’re a Savvy Mover!
