How Moving During the Winter Could Save You Money
Once the temperatures drop and the weather turns frosty, the last thing apartment dwellers tend to think about is moving. If you are thinking of moving out of your old apartment, then typically you may be tempted to wait until at least springtime. If you are serious about moving, then moving during the winter could save you money, and there are a quite few reasons why that we’ll explore in this blog.
You Should Receive Cost Effective Pricing
Moving companies operate all year round, but winter is typically the slow season for them. They still have to pay all their own bills and feed their families, so they need to ultimately make money even during the colder months. One way for them to do that is to lower their prices in the hopes of attracting customers. This means that if you move during the winter, you could face cheaper moving rates than you would if you wait until summer.
Landlords May Have Attractive Moving Offers During the Winter
If someone does move out of an apartment during the winter, then because of the cooler weather landlords may find it hard to find renters willing to fill the rental void. Having vacant apartments is never good news for landlords, so they may offer deals in order to attract new tenants. This could include one month’s free rent, or a lower deposit. If you hunt around, you could secure yourself an attractive deal during this slower time of year.
You May Be Able to Get More Help from Friends and Family
Packing up your home can be a difficult task, so if you don’t want to pay for a moving company to do the packing for you, you will need to rely upon your family and friends. During the summer these people are more likely to have plans, or other things they’d rather be doing. During the winter it’s more likely that they’ll be free to offer their services to help you move to your new location.
