Summertime is to a move across the country what rush hour is to city traffic: hectic, hectic and more hectic. By comparison, relocating between September and April resembles a comfortable country cruise. Why is May through August the busiest moving season? Simple. Primo weather + school vacation = hard-to-beat combo. But the home-mover busy season isn’t perfect. Scheduling an off-season cross-country move might provide greater benefits, including cheaper prices and increased resource availability. Trying to shoehorn into the packed summer season can prove problematic. Because movers’ schedules often are more open during the off-season, you’ll likely benefit from a lot more flexibility. Just.
