Most people view late spring and summer as the optimal time to move. However, there are quite a few advantages to moving in the winter that are often overlooked.
Benefits of winter moving
While relocating in the winter poses obvious challenges, Chicago movers may find that the benefits exceed the inconveniences. For example, college students or families with school-age children can relocate over winter break, and have time to get settled in at their new home before classes start again.
More importantly, movers can save quite a bit of money by relocating in the winter, particularly those who rent. This is due to the seasonal cycle of rental rates. Demand for apartments and other rental properties is lower in the winter, which means that movers can find the best deals on a new apartment during the colder months as property managers offer lower rates to attract new renters.
The relocation process is also cheaper in the winter. Many Chicago moving services, such as E-Z Movers, offer discounted rates through the winter, which is considered the off season. Customers will also have an easier time scheduling their moves on premium days.
