If you’re trying to balance shopping, wrapping, and spreading holiday cheer with packing up and moving, you’ll be probably be happy with ANY good news you can get! After all, this is a hectic time of year to move — and that’s exactly why most people avoid it.
Luckily, since most people aren’t looking for movers during the holiday season, you can benefit from it. As a result, your move will likely cost you a whole lot less than if you were to hire a moving company during the prime moving season!
When you think about it, this makes perfect sense. After all, most people want to enjoy the holiday season without the hassle of moving. Plus, most people move over the summer so that their kids don’t have to be uprooted in the middle of the school year. By moving during the summer, those same kids can be completely unpacked and settled by the time the first school bell rings in August.
Since moving companies know that they’re going to have a lot less business during the holiday season, they’re willing to drop their prices a bit in order to get whatever customers ARE out there through the doors. In fact, you may even be able to negotiate a much better deal simply because it’s the holidays! Even if your movers won’t budge on your estimate price, they may be willing to give you other freebies — like free boxes and packing supplies.
Bottom line — if you plan on moving this holiday season, you may be pleasantly surprised by how much it costs you. Now THAT’S a reason to have plenty of cheer!
