We can’t think of a better place to spend your time in the fall than New England. There is no region in the country that can compare the weather we get and the colors we have the opportunity to view as we travel through the Northeast. This is one of the best places on earth to just hop in your car, take a drive, and enjoy the scenery. Fall in New England is precious.
It’s also one of the best times to move to a new home. The summer rush is over, it’s not too hot, and you can book full-service moving companies a little easier during this time.
And with every season, comes our own set of things you must be aware of if you’re moving during that time. Here are just a few things to keep in mind if you are moving this fall.
Get a moving quote now
Yes, the busy moving season of summer has come to an end but moving companies can still be busy and book dates quickly. So it doesn’t matter what time of year you are moving, one of the first things you should do is get a moving quote. Contact your residential movers and get a survey booked ASAP. If you’re concerned about having people in your home, a virtual video survey can be just as effective and accurate as an in-person visit. Adjustments can always be made prior to moving.
Keep an eye on the weather
You can find some of the most incredible weather days in the autumn months. Clean and crisp air, sunny days, and low humidity. But, there can always be a chance of inclement weather and even the possibility of snow. After all, this is New England. You don’t want to be surprised on moving day and wake up to a snow-covered driveway. Start watching the weather at least a week in advance of your move day.
Moving day could require layers of clothing
If you know anything about living in New England, especially in the fall, you know that you can wake up to weather temperatures in the 30s and have it well into the 70s by midday. You want to make sure that you don’t pack away all your clothing and end up freezing the day of your move. Leave out a variety of clothing such as short and long sleeve shirts, sweaters as well as a jacket. That way you’ll be prepared for the entire day.
Keep a few tools handy for moving day
While looking at the colorful leaves can be enjoyable and relaxing here in New England, they can also be a hazard on moving day when left in the way of your moving crew. Make sure you keep the appropriate tools handy on moving day such as a rake, a broom to sweep up leaves, and even a leaf blower to make things easier. You’ll want to survey your yard including walkways and the driveway before your moving company shows up. Keep the areas clean and safe prior to the moving crew arriving.
