Why move in Spring?

29th April 2016

Our UK based removals companies will carefully move your belongings around any time of year from one end of Cornwall to the tip of Scotland. This doesn't change the simple fact that some times of the year are better for moving than others, and with spring now in full swing, we thought we'd put forward the case for making your move during this pleasant and inspirational season.

Simply More Convenient

What are you doing in the summer months? Who knows, but with the kids off school for that huge stretch of time a big part of it will be keeping them entertained. Equally much of the autumn is about gearing up for the winter break and the winter is about trudging through the annual hangover. Spring is that airy, carefree time when the year seems full of potential - making this possibly the easiest time to take on a house move.

Get Settled In...

There's nothing quite like sitting in front of a barbeque in the summer and you'll want to be well lodged in your new dwellings come yuletide, and that's why moving in the springtime is the best time of year to move house. You'll have all the difficulties out of the way in the quiet time of the year, ready to enjoy your new garden by the start of the hot spell.

The Weather

During the winter months the roads are freezing and it's very difficult to drive on ice. Equally over the summer season it can be too hot to move and picking up heavy furniture will only soak your clothes with sweat as you pant in the heat of the sun. Moving in the spring more or less guarantees you a moderate temperature for the removals process without the frostbite or sunburn.

More Daylight

The clocks go forward at the end of winter, bringing more daylight into the working hours. This makes a spring move way better than one in autumn or winter where the sunshine is truly dwindling down, requiring you to need artificial lights if the day is especially dark or overcast.

Of course, when you can move is often dependent on when you buy your new property, but if you're one of those people who likes to plan everything in advance, then making sure of a spring move could well be the best thing for your relocation.

If you want any kind of assistance with your move - no matter what time of the year you decide to go for it - the make Alan Cook the sensible choice.
