Moving at the Beginning of the Year: What Are the Advantages?

The New Year marks a fresh start. Moving into a new home at the beginning of the year may come with some regrets about moving so soon after the holidays. However, there are so many advantages to moving at the beginning of the year. National Van Lines helps families and businesses move throughout the year. Through our experience, moving in January can be distinctively easier. Here are a few reasons why:

No Lingering Holiday Mess

We’ve all been there. It is almost February, and your Christmas tree is still up. Meanwhile, mistletoe and tinsel have worn out their welcome. Packing up all of your lights and decorations is a large task. It’s easy to procrastinate as long as possible. Moving at the beginning of the year forces you to pack up your decorations right away. It may even persuade you to pack up your holiday décor on time next year!

Get a Jump on Spring Cleaning

Before you move, you should spend some time sorting through items that you don’t use anymore. After you discard or donate these items, you ease the burden of packing by only keeping the necessities. Unpacking the necessities gives you a unique ability to organize your home without any added work of clearing out cabinets or drawers. With resolutions abound, many people are more motivated to clean and organize at the start of a new year. Getting a jump on spring cleaning can also help you to lower your stress and feel much more at home in your new place.

Cooler Weather

A move during the beginning of the year maybe easier depending on the weather in your final destination. In hotter climates, moving during the summer can be a miserable experience. Moving while the weather is cooler can make things a lot more comfortable for you and your family.
