Pros and Cons of Moving during Different Seasons
By the time you are established in life with the career of your dream, a family you love, or perhaps both, there is little to no time for self-moving.

Pros of Moving to Boulder in the Summer:
- Summertime in Boulder is beautiful! Moving in the summer provides the best weather. In Boulder, CO it is usually dry, sunny, and warm, so there is no need for your Boulder movers to work around the weather. This way, you are guaranteed that all of your belongings will not get wet!

Spring & Fall
Pros of Moving to Boulder in the Spring or Fall:
- Hiring a professional mover in the spring or fall is much easier than in the summer because demand is not as high. Spring and fall moves make it easier to book the right moving company.
- These seasons do not have extreme weather patterns. The weather in spring and fall is fairly predictable in Boulder.
Cons of Moving to Boulder in the Spring or Fall:
- Unfortunately, your kids are in school. Moving your kids while in school can be tough on them and require more paperwork since they will be middle-of-the-semester transfers. They most likely will have to catch up on a ton of schoolwork at their new school.
Pros of moving to Boulder in the winter:
- Since no one enjoys moving during Boulder’s winter weather, there is less competition when hiring movers – making them more affordable.
- Purchasing a home in the winter is easy as well, and you can often get it at a much lower price than that of peak house hunting season.
Cons of moving to Boulder in the winter:
- Boulder’s winter weather is not entirely suitable for household moves. You and your All My Sons movers have to keep a close eye on weather conditions in order to ensure a safe move for everyone.
- The busy holiday season can add to the moving stress. With three months of holidays: Halloween, Thanksgiving, and December; planning a winter move can be the last straw. Many prefer to be with family and settled into their homes rather than moving.
- For those moving with children, winter moves may interrupt the school year if you are moving to another school district or state.
