Moving to Fort Myers During the Fall Season
As we all know, the summer is the busiest season for moving. This is because schools are out and it is easier to relocate children to a new school at the start of the academic school year, rather than after it has already begun, or midway through. Even though summer is the prime moving season and benefits families who are moving, if you do not have children who are in school, moving once fall rolls around can work to your advantage.
All My Sons Moving & Storage Fort Myers has been moving families to and from the Fort Myers area for over 20 years. During that time, we have seen numerous people moving into the area during the fall months of October and November. Why? Because it has finally cooled down in Florida around that time.
Moving to Fort Myers during the fall season is ideal not only temperature wise, but also because you have the chance to get a better moving quote and moving experience than you would during the prime summer moving months when Fort Myers movers are bombarded, and most likely hot from the Florida humidity.
If you have already made the genius decision of moving to Fort Myers during the fall season, here are some tips from All My Sons for making your moving experience go as smoothly and as stress-free as possible.
1. Get at least three moving quotes – When hiring a Fort Myers mover during the fall season, you should be able to receive some great quotes, since moving industry prices fluctuate based on supply and demand. Contact at least three Fort Myers movers to come to your home and give you a free, in-home moving estimate. Then, choose which moving company has the better overall reputation and professionalism, not just a better price. In the moving industry – you get what you pay for.
2. Schedule your move earlier in the month – The majority of people move at the end of the month, so try to schedule your move for the second or third weekend rather than the first or the last.
3. Pack wisely – If you are moving to Fort Myers from someone that is much colder, keep in mind that Florida does not get too cold during fall and even winter, so you may want to toss out any winter coats that will take up too much space when moving. Although you may have already gotten a great deal from the mover just because it is fall, you can make your move less expensive by downsizing your belongings as much as possible. The less you move with, the less you tend to get charged.
4. Set up utilities in advance – Since there is a slight chance that it could be a little chilly out when moving to Fort Myers during the fall season, make sure that you call and have your utilities turned on before moving day, so that you and your movers can be comfortable moving things in and out and around your new home.
