Fall is a good season to groove and move!
But relocation is a nerve-wracking process. You need to consider various factors to make your moving experience a smooth one, like the cost of the move, choosing the best movers in Brooklyn NY, the precautionary measures you require for a particular season, and, many more.
But, if the season of your move is Autumn, your move is going to be a little less difficult. You do not have to face those spine-chilling cold winds of the winter, that sweltering sun and the annoying sultriness of the summer, and, the violent thunderstorms of the rainy season. Moving in fall season can be a good time of the year.
Here are some tips to make your autumn move frugal:
1. Prearrange Movers and Transportation
As the busiest moving season, Summer, is bygone, your odds of negotiating a lower price increases. Avoid booking the last dates of a month as most people move during this time of the month. Try getting quote from at least 3 moving companies and compare to filter out the one that suits you. Before hiring the movers sort your belongings, may be there is very less quantity that has to be taken to your new place, if this is the case then you may not need a moving truck to move. You can smartly pack all the stuff in your car and get moving!
2. Tune-Up Your Car
Get your car serviced few days before a move, preferably a week. Get your car engine checked, oil changed, fluid-levels checked, anti-freeze checked, wiper fluid examined, antifreeze, and other important things. We don't want you to break down in the half-way of your move or at the side of the road.
3. Pack for the Season Smartly
When you start packing, pack seasonal stuff together. This will help you find the things easy on reaching your new home. Do not store away the winter season items that you’ll need soon after settling into your new home. Keep raincoats, umbrellas, rain boots, and, snow-removing equipments at an easily accessible location.
4. Get Your Packing Done in Time
Avoid the last minute fuss by start packing early. If you are doing it all on your own, then start packing a day before your move. Hiring full-service packers is recommended to ensure optimal efficiency for your move.
With Daylight Savings Time in November, it allows you to do everything on time. Starting early a day will avoid the things like missing a step going downstairs. Be prepared for the less visibility options as the days get shorter after summer.
5. Be Prepared for the Unexpected
Though the Summer is gone, yet you might have to deal with the high temperatures, the unexpected rain showers, and much more. You may get an unexpected gust of wind on your way. You may also have to face general inconvenience like truck's tire popping or huge traffic jams. Be prepared for all the hiccups you might encounter.
Check the traffic forecast, weather forecast, plan the best route for your move. Prepare accordingly.
6. Plan for your Children
If you have school-aged children, the most difficult task for you will be to make them leave their school and prepare to move to a new one.
To accomplish this task, consider the following:
Have words with your children in advance about what they think to assist in the moving process
Make your children feel excited about the move
If possible, walk-through their new school to make your children feel good about it
As your children would be joining the school term late, talk to new teachers about the ways how your children would cover-up the syllabus.
Follow these tips to make your autumn moving experience easy and a memorable one. Once done with packing everything, pull out those tough leather boots, scarf, and gloves of yours and start with your autumn move. Kick away those fallen leaves and get moving!
