When most people think of winter, they think of the holidays, falling snow, and huddling inside with loved ones to stay warm. Planning a residential or commercial move isn’t often the first thing to come to one’s mind.

After 25 years of experience, however, Peroulas Moving and Storage has found that despite the chill there are actually several benefits to planning your local or long-distance move between October and April!

Beating the Tennessee Heat

If you’ve ever lived in Knoxville, you know all too well that the heat of Tennessee summers can easily surpass 100 degrees. Packing and hauling belongings in these conditions puts you and your possessions at risk.

Summer moves are known for increased risk of:

  • Dehydration
  • Heat Stroke
  • Melting or Damage to Candles, Records, and Other Belongings

By choosing to plan your or your company’s move during winter, you lower the risk of injury to yourself, the people assisting in your move, and your valued possessions! In addition, it’s far easier to haul boxes with a cool breeze at your back, which can even expedite the process.

Getting a Professional Hand in the Off-Season

A move of any kind can be incredibly stressful, which is why you may want to consider the help of a professional moving and storage company. The busiest season for residential movers starts at the beginning of May and runs through September. Even when planning in advance, homeowners may run into roadblocks with moving companies being booked out far into the summer.

In addition, folks travel through and around Knoxville much more during those warm, sunny months, and encounters with traffic jams and congested highways are likely.

In the off-season—especially after the holidays—moving company’s schedules are a little more free! You can take the steps to plan your move with less advance notice, which means far less waiting to move into your new home. With less competition for services, you may even find that companies offer discounted rates if you schedule in winter.
