Spring is the season of fresh starts, and as such, is a popular time to move to a new home. The weather is usually pleasant, and things feel calmer than they will when the hectic days of summer begin. And if you have school-aged children, spring is the perfect time for a local move because you can ensure that your family will be fully settled in by the time the new school year rolls around.

There are many benefits to planning a springtime move, but of course, the process can still cause stress and overwhelm. Below are 6 helpful tips to ensure that your spring move goes smoothly.

1.) Hire a Qualified Moving Team in Advance

Having a team of expert movers on your side makes any move less stressful, and booking your movers early is always a good idea. Because many houses go on the market in the spring months, movers can book up quickly. We advise hiring your movers one to two months early. At Behrens Moving Company, we provide free and thorough estimates for residential moves and we are always available to discuss the details of your relocation with you.

2.) Have a Rainy-Day Plan

We all know that April showers bring May flowers, so we recommend planning for rain if you are moving during the spring. With any luck, you will get a beautiful and sunny day for your move, but it never hurts to be prepared. Be sure that you have waterproof packing supplies on hand and that you haven’t packed away all your raincoats, rain hats, and umbrellas!

3.) Make a Thorough Moving Checklist

Moving requires lots of planning and coordination. It is a great idea to create a moving checklist to ensure that you don’t forget anything. That way, when moving day rolls around, you can happily check items off your list as you go through the day.

4.) Use the Opportunity to Spring Clean

Many people clean and declutter during the spring season. If you are moving during spring, however, you have an opportunity to do an especially thorough job of your annual cleaning. Everything will be moving from its regular place anyway, so take a bit of extra time to ensure that you are only bringing things to your new home that you truly want and need. And don’t worry if this process shows you that you have too many things; we offer safe and secure storage services if you have things that you can’t bear to part with but also don’t want to bring to your new home just yet!

5.) Plan a Yard Sale

A yard sale is a great way to give your old things new life. People tend to go to yard sales during the spring months when the weather warms up. You will get great turnout if you host a yard sale on a nice day when people can enjoy the weather while browsing your selection!

6.) Have Fun

Don’t forget to have fun, take a walk around your new neighborhood, or hit a nearby coffee shop for some local flavor.
