7 Things to Know About Moving in The Fall

When trying to plan a move, there are a lot of factors to consider. What is the weather going to be like? Is it a busy moving season? When is the best time of year to move? What is the best month to move? Well, Copperstate Moving can help answer all of these questions. 


From our years of experience and knowledge, we want to share seven things to know about moving in the Fall:


  • Moving in the Fall can be more affordable 
  • Movers tend to have more flexible schedules
  • It gets darker earlier
  • Packing and unloading for the season
  • Activate heat and lights in new home
  • Protect your floors 
  • Set up your move with enough time before the holidays


When Is the Best Time of Year to Move?

Fall in Arizona can mean warmer days and cooler nights. October and November would give you the best Fall weather to move in. If you plan on moving to or within Arizona, let our Phoenix movers help with the process and give you some Fall moving tips


1 – Moving in the Fall Can Be More Affordable

Peak moving season is normally May through September, so moving during months like October and November means there is less demand for moving companies, and moving services will more likely be more affordable than moving during peak season. Do your research to make sure you hire the right Arizona moving company for you.


2 – Movers Tend to Have More Flexible Schedules

Much like the affordability in Fall, another perk is that movers have more flexibility in their schedules than they do during the Spring and Summer months. It is a great thing to take advantage of because now you will have a better chance of your move fitting your schedule over making your move fit theirs. 


3 – It Gets Darker Earlier

During the Fall months, the days seem to be a little shorter. It is important to think about this when planning your move. With less daylight, you’ll want to be as efficient as you can be. Creating a moving checklist can help with this. Have a plan for the day and try to stick to it. This way, by sundown, you’ll have as much done as you could’ve fit into the day. Hiring professional movers will also increase the efficiency of the move. 


4 – Packing and Unloading for the Season

When packing up your belongings during your relocation time, it is important to think about the season and the weather and pack accordingly. Since Arizona tends to get colder at night, you might not want to pack your jackets at the bottom of a box. Keep season-appropriate clothing and shoes accessible during the process. 


5 – Activate Your Heat and Lights At Your New Home

This is another thing to keep in mind when looking at the weather for the day of your move, will it be cold at night? If yes, then you’ll want to make sure your heater and lights are activated. Moving into a house with no heat on during a cold or cooler night probably isn’t the best way to spend your first night in your new house. Plan ahead and get your heaters on. 


6 – Protect Your Floors

Moving can be messy, so making sure your carpets and floors are protected will help with the clean-up at the end of the day. Dirt, clay, dust, leaves, anything that could stain and dirty up your floors, you’ll want to make sure they are cleared from your walkway so that they don’t get in the home.


7 – Set Up Your Move With Enough Time Before the Holidays

With the holidays around the corner, you’ll want to get settled in your new home before they get here. Our professional packers can help make the packing and unpacking process as smooth as possible so you can get ready for the holidays easier. We even offer storage facilities in Phoenix to make your move more comfortable.
