Different times of the year come with different challenges when you move. A late summer move can be just as challenging as a winter move, often because movers think everything will fall into place without much preplanning. The truth is, there are still thing you need to do to make sure your move is successful!

Schedule Your Move as Soon as You Can

Summer is a popular time of year to move. It’s easy to see why. The weather isn’t so bad, and for many people, it’s the easiest time of year to take time off of work. The trouble is, everyone feels the same way, which means there are lots of people moving at the same time! In addition, the end of the summer comes with its own set of challenges as thousands of families are planning to help their child move to college campuses all over the country.

The late summer is known for its heat. It’s important to prepare for that heat if you’re planning a move during this time.
