Off Peak/Season Moving

In the moving industry, peak season refers to summer, a time of year when the most number of people are moving. If you’re hiring a mover or renting a moving truck, the summer months, primarily the months of July and August, will result in the highest fees. If you want to reduce moving costs, try to move during the off-season (September to May) or if you have to move in the summer, try to do so during the week rather than weekends. It’s also important to note that July 1 is the busiest moving day of the entire year.

It comes a time in everyone’s life when a few friends and truck isn’t enough to move anymore. As people get older they acquire things. From larger more substantial furniture items, electronics, kitchen pots-pans-appliances and everything that you have collected or accumulated throughout the years. It eventually gets to a point where you either buy a home or move into an apartment that you plan on staying in for a long while.  When that time comes here are 10 must have items that will help make it a long term home.

  1. ART YOU LOVE- it’s time to frame and display all the great pieces you have been storing away
  2. BOOKSHELF- Consider the bookshelf an inspirational place to display everything that’s uniquely you—then you can personalize and change it over the years as you see fit
  3. MATCHING TOWELS- Buy at least two sets of towels that you’re happy to use and proud to lend to house guests.
  4. PLANTS- Plants will make your home feel more permanent
  5. A NICE MATTRESS- invest in your bed during your adult life
  6. A COLLECTION- start a collection that showcases your travels or things you love
  7. BATHROOM ACCESSORIES THAT AREN’T PLASTIC- time to upgrade from the dollar store bathroom aisle
  8. CANDLES- scented candles not the ones from back in the day shaped like a mushroom that smelled like burning plastic when they were lit
  9. TWO BED SIDE TABLES- this not only adds balance to your adult bed but is very useful for overnight guests
  10. A GOOD THROW- not only useful but looks great on the couch or chair
