The spring season is a peak time for people to move to a new property. Whether you received a new job offer or want to be closer to family, it's important to prepare correctly for your spring move. 

As a professional moving and storage company, we have completed many spring moves throughout our history. This article will cover some useful tips for preparing for your upcoming spring move. 

Hire Movers Early in the Process

At the start of the planning process, you should hire a moving company for your upcoming relocation. A mover needs adequate time to plan a relocation and help you create a streamlined moving plan.

As a rule, you should hire a mover at least one to two months before your intended moving date. You can search around and request estimates from various movers in your local area to find the best deal for your needs. 

Get Rid of Clutter in the Home

Along with moving, a spring cleaning can also clear out the unneeded items in your home. Downsizing your home can be a great way to reduce the hassle of unpacking your belongings at the next destination. 

If you want to eliminate unused items like clothing or kitchen equipment, you can donate them to your local charity organization. Giving items to a charity is a much better choice than throwing them away. 

Some of the most common charity organizations that will accept your belongings are:

  • Goodwill
  • Local Church
  • Salvation Army 

Be Mindful of the Weather

When you are planning a spring move, you will need to take into account the potential for rain to affect your relocation. You can prepare for rain by purchasing packing equipment with sealable lids and waterproof plastic.

The waterproof plastic covering can keep your valuable items safe from water and debris. Additionally, you should leave a raincoat out of your clothing box to protect yourself from the storm. 

Purchase Packing Supplies

Prepare for your spring relocation by purchasing all of the necessary packing supplies for your belongings. You can buy specialized wardrobe boxes or mattress covers, depending on your needs. 

Additionally, many moving providers offer discount rates on moving boxes for your relocation with them. Choosing to work with a moving company for your packing supplies can help you save money during the move.
