Every time when we have to make a decision about moving in Greater Vancouver or elsewhere in Canada we are asking the same question over and over again: what is the best time to move?
The truth is that there is no simple answer. To decide what the most appropriate time to relocate is, you need to take into consideration some key factors.
In this article we have listed some of such factors, depending on your needs and requirements.
Best Time to Move Based on the Costs
As it comes to money, the best time to move is in the off-peak season (fall and winter). Market is down and most moving and relocation companies offer lower rates and additional moving discounts and coupons.
Worst Time to Move
Also, the worst time for Greater Vancouver moving seems to be the weekends, especially in the beginning or the end of the month – moving companies’ fees may be a bit higher then.
Of course it is not worth to save money for quality. Find a Greater Vancouver moving company that is not only affordable, but licensed and insured. First, do some research on a list of chosen local Greater Vancouver movers. Do not forget to read moving reviews and ratings on your Greater Vancouver moving company before booking with it.
Moving with Kids
Moving with your family is a tough job. And if your children are going to school it gets even more complicated. If this is your case – summer is the best choice because your children will be free from school. Research local schools, and more specifically find what other activities are involved in the various school programs, besides regular classes.
Best Time to Move in Terms of Weather
Weather conditions are crucial when it comes to a long distance moving. Be aware of the fact that e.g. if the best time for going to live to Los Angeles or Hawaii is fall-winter, it’s not the same for Canada because of the low temperatures and snow there.
Contact Greater Vancouver Moving Companies
Contact multiple moving companies in Greater Vancouver to research their costs and discounts. If you have flexible moving dates, in most cases you will receive lower estimates. Fixed pickup and delivery dates usually cost more. You can get a free moving cost estimate directly from here fast and easy.
Also, do not forget about the holidays!
During holidays you definitely have more free time, since you are not at work, but the traffic gets busier. Also, most Greater Vancouver moving companies offer higher rates or no service at all. You have to check if there are any upcoming official religious or bank holidays when planning long distance international move in both countries.
