What’s the Best Season of the Year to Move?

The secret to smooth moving lies in planning. If you have enough time, you can plan how to find the best Nashville moving company, pack all your belongings, and even the best time of the year to move. 

Depending on the season, moving companies will be busier, costs will be higher, or the weather conditions will be more challenging. Here’s what to consider when determining the best time of year for your move. 

Summer Moves 

Summer is a great time of the year to move. Kids are out of school, the weather is nice, and most homeowners start listing their homes on the market, so the chances of finding a new home are higher. Unfortunately, you won’t be the only person thinking like that. 

According to moving industry statistics, summer is also the busiest season for moving companies. It’s harder to find experienced movers during this time, and if you do, it’ll be difficult to find a convenient day or time.  

Pros of Moving During Summer 

  • Longer days with more sunlight. 
  • Good weather. 
  • No school. 

Cons of Moving During Summer 

  • Movers may cancel because they’re overbooked. 
  • Depending on where you live, there’s a risk of your objects being damaged due to the heat. 

Spring Moves 

Spring is also a convenient time to move, and the demand isn’t as high. The weather is nice, except for the occasional spring shower. Rain on a moving day can really put a hamper on your plans, though! 

Pros of Moving During Spring 

  • Nice weather. 
  • Less demand. 
  • Better prices. 

Cons of Moving During Spring 

  • In some places, spring means rainy season. 
  • If you have kids, it’s right before the end of the school year. 

Winter Moves 

Winter won’t look like a good time for a move if you’re not a fan of the cold. However, demand is lower during these months, making prices more accessible. 

You’ll have to be flexible with moving days, though, as winter means there’s a chance for storms, snow, and needing to reschedule. 

Pros of Moving During Winter 

  • Fewer moving shipments means faster delivery times for your belongings.  
  • Rates may also be lower.  
  • Kids will be out of school during winter holidays. 

Cons of Moving During Winter 

  • Fewer daylight hours to work with.  

Fall Moves 

The autumn weather is a little bit more forgiving than winter and summer, and there’s also less demand.  

The secret to moving in the fall lies in finding the best dates. Certain fall months can be more difficult than others. For example, if you move in late autumn, you may have to worry about rain or snow on your moving day, depending on your location.  

Pros of Moving During Fall 

  • More availability and scheduling flexibility with professional movers. 
  • Mild weather conditions. 

Cons of Moving During Fall 

  • If you live near a university campus, the influx of college students will make it harder to find an apartment.

What Our Clients Say

I cannot recommend Pink Zebra enough! Movers Tyler and Craig did a phenomenal job with preparing, moving and reassembling in a timely and professional manner. The Pink Zebra team was always friendly, knowledgeable in the industry and great communicators throughout the process.


We loved our movers. They were super nice and professional and definitely knew how to pack a truck! Pink Zebra definitely went above and beyond. We have moved several times and this by far has been our best experience!


Pink Zebra Moving did an excellent job moving me into my new home! They were willing to accommodate my request to move on a holiday, immediately following my closing. They were incredibly time efficient without sacrificing careful handling of my belongings. I highly recommend this moving company.


These guys are very skilled at what they do! I sat and spoke with the foreman (I think moving crews have foremen?) at the CoolBox storage facility in Liberty Park. I watched them very quickly and efficiently load antique vending machines and the largest furniture I've ever seen. I was amazed.


We love Pink Zebra moving company! They handled a very stressful move for us with ease. We had several moves going on at the same time all going to different locations. The whole crew was so nice and they were so knowledgeabl of how to take extra care of some of my antique pieces.
