• “Your team is amazing in their communication, attention to detail, and providing excellent customer service to Sabre's employees and their families for their packing, shipping, and storage needs. Moving to and from an assignment can be terribly stressful for all parties involved, but you and your team really go above and beyond the normal expectations to relieve that stress from the employees and their families.”

  • “I would like to thank you for your help and assistance with this relocation. I am happy to say that this has been by far, the smoothest relocation I have ever had. I am not kidding. From day one, everything has been taken care of extremely well. The delivery went well. Apparently, nothing has suffered or has been damaged. Thank you again for your great work. It has been a real pleasure to be assisted by you and Arpin!”

Top 5 External Factors that Affect Summer Moving

Moving season is upon us once again. Having spent the last two decades working in the industry, I can tell you from experience that between May through September, the term "multi-tasking" takes on a whole new meaning!

Now is the time of year when thousands of families will begin packing up their household goods and starting their lives over in a new location. During this hectic time, hiring a professional mover can help ease the transition and allow families to maintain some sense of normalcy in their day-to-day routine.

However, there are several external factors that can impact your experiencing a smooth transition to your new home during the summer months:

  1. Everybody’s doing it! - According to the US Census Bureau, almost half of all domestic moves will take place during the peak moving season.
  2. Driver Capacity – The moving industry as a whole does not have enough drivers to meet the demands of the relocating public during this time of year.
  3. Home sales and closings – Spring is the time of year when we see the real estate market pickup.  Typically, once an agreement has been reached, the parties have 30 days to close the deal and move out of their residence, necessitating a move.
  4. Weather – Most people find it more convenient to sort through their homes when the mercury is a little higher and they don’t have to deal with snow and ice.
  5. Schools are not in session – Parents of school-age children find it easier to tackle a move during this time of the year when it’s less disruptive to the family routine.

Contacting a professional mover in advance can help ease the stresses associated with a move. To find a top-rated moving company in your area, I highly recommend that you visit the American Moving and Storage Association’s website moving.org.

I wish you much success in your new home!
