Moving can be a stressful and expensive process, but there are ways to make it easier and more affordable. Most people prefer to move on the weekends, but since this is when moving companies are in high demand, it can be more expensive. The best days to move are Monday to Thursday, with Tuesday being the least popular moving day. This is because there is much less demand for moves on Tuesdays, making it easier to schedule the day of the move and saving money in the process.
Fridays are also especially busy, especially at the end of each month, as people spend three weekends moving and unpacking at a time. Sunday is the least popular day to move, with only 6 percent of people choosing that day. If you're looking for ways to save money, the best day of the week to move can be any day from Monday to Thursday. With so many people avoiding moving in winter, rental prices start to fall in October and inventory reaches its lowest levels in December. Starting your search in the middle of the month, for example in mid-March, gives you time to find a property, give 30 days' notice and move out before the end of April.
Sunday can also be a cheaper move for walk-in apartment and house moves, as buildings with elevators generally don't allow people to come and go on Sundays. Although it comes with its own challenges, moving in the spring helps you avoid possible winter storms and cold climates, while saving you money on your move. As a full-service moving company, IVL offers a wide range of optional add-ons that you can purchase to make your move less stressful, from full luggage services to the installation of a home gym.
