While moving during winter can prove to be an absolute nightmare, moving in the fall isn’t always sunshine and colors. Fall brings its own set of advantages and disadvantages that you must keep in mind before getting in touch with the local movers. Thankfully, being prepared doesn’t have to be as complex as rocket science; just read this guide to know more!
The Pros and Cons of Moving in the Fall
You’re excited to begin a new life in a different city or state. After all, who wouldn’t be? But don’t let the excitement catch you off guard and get you into trouble. Here are some of the benefits and disadvantages that autumn brings:
- No need to worry about burning yourself up in the sweltering summer heat of San Francisco
- Not many people move during the fall, so you can expect to get some better deals from the moving companies
- Bonus: you might catch some good scenery and watch the autumn leaves fall in its glory while on the way to the new location
- You get fewer daylight hours to complete the move successfully
- You have to navigate through a lot of leaves, because hey, it’s fall!
How to prepare for the ideal move?
- Clear the pathway of leaves
As you can tell by now, one of the leading problems of this season is the shedding of leaves. In fact, some parts of Bay Area see so much shedding that even walking becomes impossible. So before you do anything else, you need to make sure all pathways leading to your house are free of leaves. Sure, they look good, but looks don’t help you move, does it?
- Be aware of lack of light
Fall season rings the bells of winter, which indicates that it’s time to prepare to bring out the cozy sweaters and pumpkin carvings. It also means short daytime to get your essential tasks done. Don’t forget this fact while you’re moving and nature will treat you kindly. Then again, it’s not as if night time would eat you alive.
- Dress for the occasion
Since the weather during fall may range from clear skies to rainfall, it’s crucial that you are dressed appropriately for the move. Carry a light jacket, some comfortable clothes, and a couple of pairs of socks just to be on the safer side. Oh! Don’t forget to carry a raincoat in case it pours
- Keep the children safe
Talk to your children about how important it is to stick to the plan while moving. Also, let them know that you’re moving to a safe place where they’ll have more opportunity to make friends and learn new things.
