So, word on the street (and by street, we mean by the fabulously talented team at HireAHelper) is that moving season is officially here! Yep, National Moving Day was just 2 weeks ago (May 27th)! Moving is in full swing and now is the time when most people are packing up their goods and schlepping them to a new place of residence.

This whole “moving season” phenomenon got us to thinking…when is the best time to move? I mean we totally get that most of the time you don’t decide on the date of your move. Sometimes it’s a lease, a new job, or a new school year that dictates when and where you’re moving. But if you did have the luxury to decide exactly when to move….what would the ideal season/month/date/time be?

If you want to save money, then you may want to schedule your move when most people are not moving.  You’ll have more resources available to you (trucks, moving companies, packing supplies) and they’ll all typically come at a lower price.

We did the research and we’re here to tell you the best time to move…
