There are a lot of reasons why many people prefer to move during the summer. However, in the opinion of experts and professional movers, it is better to move during the off-peak season.
The period from October to April is considered an off-peak moving season, so the demand for moving services is low. That’s why during this period offers from moving companies are more advantageous than many people think. Moving in the off-peak season can save you money and time. However, there are things that you should pay attention to and plan everything right.
In this blog, we will talk about some benefits and advantages of moving during off-peak months and share with you some tips to ensure smooth and safe moving.
In Ontario, most people prefer to move in the summer and that’s why it is the busiest season for moving companies in Toronto, the GTA. As you know, the higher the demand, the higher the moving rates. After the highly demanded summer season, moving costs start to reduce and the demand for moving services goes down as well. Therefore, to attract more customers, professional moving companies in Toronto lower their prices.
If you want to save money, we recommend you move your house during the off-peak moving season.
Plenty of movers to choose
If you plan your move during the off-peak moving season, you will have plenty of choice of mover and you can choose the most experienced and reliable moving company that offers high-quality service and meet all your moving requests and needs. You can calmly sit back and be sure that the chance to get smooth and successful moving is very high.
However, during the summer almost all moving companies are booked in advance and you can find a very limited number of available movers. Among limited choices, you can hire some less-reputable moving company and become a victim of moving scams. Another bad scenario is getting stuck with less experienced movers, because moving companies sometimes hire temporary movers who don’t have enough training and experience. The risks are higher and you can stress about your move more in the peak season.
Many available moving dates
During the off-peak season moving companies have flexible schedules, so you can get the date and equipment meeting your moving demands. It means you will be able to organize and plan your move according to your own schedule and pick convenient pick-up and delivery days. Moreover, if you have any force-major cases and delays, your movers will be flexible to adjust to them. Again a less stressful moving process!
Movers pay more attention
During the summer season, movers work under a lot of pressure, their schedules are very tight, and too much work to deliver. However, the situation is different during the off-peak season. The movers have more time and they can give more attention to you. If you plan your move from October to April, you will have a lot of benefits:
- There will be more time to discuss your needs and requirements with the moving consultant.
- The moving team will not be in a hurry on your moving day to go to another house. The movers will be more careful and finish your move safely and efficiently.
Weather will make the move easier
Heat and hot air make moving difficult, although warm weather is considered one of the biggest advantages of moving during the summer. Movers can have less energy, sweating can make it more difficult, and dehydration can make you feel hell. On the contrary, cool weather can make the situation smoother and easier. It will be easy to breathe and movers will be more active. They can carry heavier items and load them onto the moving truck when it is fresh and cool outside.
