Moving in the FallBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving, at any time of the year, is usually equal parts enjoyable and demanding. Moving in the autumn has its own special advantages along with concerns. Many families have discovered that relocating in the fall months results in a better, more pleasant changeover; others, due to unique conditions, elect to wait until a better time. Being professional movers in Denver, we would like to share with you a few positives and negatives of relocating during the autumn season:


1. The weather is generally pleasant

If you choose to move during the summer months, you will probably have to cope with high temps along with humidity. To put it differently, you'll perspire plenty as you load and unload your belongings. However, winter weather conditions tends to make moving nippy, miserable, and even dangerous.

The fall is a popular time to move as you stay away from extremes of hot or cold. Autumn temperatures are usually nice, and you probably won't have to be concerned about wintry or slippery driving conditions.

2. Professional movers might have reduced prices

Summer is normally the peak season for moving. Considering that fall comes after peak season, you may be able to get a better price when working with a moving company in Denver.

3. Professional movers might have more availability

Another advantage of moving during the fall is that the moving company may be in a better place to allow for your moving dates, given that their calendar isn't as packed.


1. It might be more difficult to sell your residence

If you don't at the moment rent and haven't sold your residence yet, then fall might be a hard time of the year to have a purchaser to close on it. However, we must admit that in the current market, this might not be too much of an issue.

2. It may be tricky to "settle into" a new home just before the holiday season

Most people are consumed by the holidays, either on an individual or a business level. Relocating to a different spot is usually stressful at any time but could become even more so right before the most frantic time of the year (at least for lots of people). Additionally, if you have children, you need to really coordinate the move so that they can transition into a new place with marginal anxiety - and fall might not be a good time to make that happen.

3. The weather might be erratic

Fall conditions are frequently nice, and free of extremes in temperature or humidity. However, there may be still an element of volatility regarding fall weather patterns. For instance, should you be moving to or from a northern climate, there is always the chance that an unanticipated snowstorm could hit at the end of fall - potentially in November, or even October! There's also a chance that you may have to deal with a sudden heat wave, or unanticipated falls in temperature.

Keep in mind, whether you opt to move in the fall or not, you should definitely consider hiring the help of professional movers to make your transition as effortless as is possible.
