When to Move | Save Money Moving in the Fall!

September 18th, 2012 - 12:55 PM

Just like with hotels, airlines and popular vacation destinations, there are times of the year that are less expensive to move than others. We’re actually moving into one of those times right now – the fall and winter months are considered part of the “off-peak” moving season. That simply means more availability and lower prices. If you’re planning a move before the holidays, now’s the time to get a moving quote!

When you select your moving date (the date U-Pack delivers the moving trailer or ReloCubes), you’ll typically find lower prices during the middle of the week. In contrast, you’ll normally notice higher prices during the summer months, on Fridays, at the end of the month and on the days surrounding holidays. We call these “peak moving times.” If your moving day is flexible, you’ll almost always save money by avoiding these times.

Of course, sometimes you have no control over the season your move needs to take place – if your job is transferring out of state in August, you may no choice but to move in August. No worries, there are still options for lowering your moving cost. If your date range is flexible, call a U-Pack moving specialist to determine the lowest-price day available – in some cases you may see a noticeable savings.
