The Best Time to Move to the Twin Cities
Minneapolis winters are among some of the worst winter conditions in the entire United States, except maybe Alaska, of course. If you are looking into moving to Minneapolis, unfortunately, a winter move is not typically feasible or recommended by Minneapolis movers. As much as the Minneapolis movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage would love to take care of your winter move, as we are experts in the area and can handle moving during all seasons, if you have the choice to move during a less inclement season, it is recommended.
Moving to Minneapolis during winter is not ideal due to the blistering weather conditions. With temperatures ranging from the low 30s to low 40s, unless you are moving to Minneapolis from an area of roughly the same temperatures and you are used to it, like your Minneapolis movers are, then you may not be acclimated to the weather yet, which could make moving to Minneapolis during winter a nightmare for you and your family. In the event that you have no option other than a winter move, your Minneapolis movers will urge you to be prepared. Proper winter move preparedness includes making sure that you have the proper attire to be warm and comfortable, setting aside shovels and snow tools to make your move easy and safe from slips and falls, as well as taking home safety measures to make sure that everyone stays warm during the process. If you are moving out of Minneapolis during winter and moving to another city or state, make sure that your Minneapolis home is warm and that you are closing doors while your movers are going in and out of your home, in order to keep the heat inside. If you are moving to Minneapolis, you will want to do the same in your new home as well.
Many people may tell you that the absolute best time to move to the Twin Cities is during the months of June, July, and August. Now, it is important to keep in mind that these are the prime moving months for Minneapolis movers and moving companies across the nation, which means that you can expect higher rates. The recommendations for moving during these months most likely come from the temperatures ranging from the high 70s to low 80s. However, in order to avoid moving during winter, but still get a lower rate than that of the prime summer moving months, the Minneapolis movers at All My Sons suggest moving during April or May when temperatures are between 57 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit, or during September and October when temperatures are between 71 and 58 degrees Fahrenheit. The slightly lower temperatures are not too hot to move during, and not too cold either.
Perhaps the very best time to move to the Twin Cities is the month of May. The month of May in Minneapolis sees an average temperature of 69 degrees Fahrenheit, making it absolutely perfect weather for moving. There is no snow, and typically no rain, but bright, cool, sunny skies. It is also the one month that most students are out of school, making it a great idea for families who are looking to move to Minneapolis.
