Seems like everyone is moving during the summer. Moving season is at its peak during the months of June – August. Is it really best to move during the Summer? Well, it depends. Relocation specialists from Top Notch Movers can argue. In Florida, the moving season comes with the heat.
Some days it is impossible to get anything done outside. Especially when it comes to moving. We highly suggest following these tips to keep up with the heat and rush during the Summer:
- Stay hydrated. Drink water, try to skip juices or sodas as they contain unnecessary amounts of sugar.
- Make sure you use a sunscreen to protect your skin from the sunburn.
- Take breaks. Summer heat can slow you down, take a minute to refresh.
- Get help! Moving season is the busiest time for any mover, make sure you reserve your movers in advance.
- Allow yourself enough time to move. Sometimes, a day won’t be enough. Make sure to be prepared.
Summer is a moving season, however, it might be wise to wait.
During the moving season, prices spike on services. Movers charge more to expand their fleet of trucks, so they can cater to the needs of growing demand. Leasing offices increase the prices as the need to find an apartment is much higher in Summer than in Winter.
Moving in Summer can easily cost you 20-30% more than moving in Winter or any other season. Not in a hurry to move? Wait till October. Better weather, lower cost.
At Top Notch Movers, we work with our clients to offer the best price for the dates that they inquire. We do not upcharge or try to sell you the things you won’t need.
When contacting us, the estimator will suggest better alternative dates for your relocation. Saving you money, and troubles our main priority.

People love hosting and going to yard sales in the summer. A lot of people just take a day to drive around and look for them in the summer months. If you are moving, it is important to note this because summer is the time that you can host your own yard sale.

Your Kids and Their School
The best time for your children to move is in the summer. First off, it is not disturbing their school time, the time that they need to focus primarily on their studies. Furthermore, they have the time to do so in the summer because they do not have many other priorities at these ages, giving them ample time to be able to help with the move.
Summer is the perfect moving season for newlyweds. Newlyweds are relatively most of the times, which means that they probably attend school, so having a wedding in the summer when the weather is nice, is perfect for them. Of course, after getting hitched, they are going to need to move into a home, again making summer the perfect season for this.
