Is March a Good Month to Move?

March in Tennessee brings blustery days, sudden spring rain showers, flowers blooming all around us – and the beginning of peak moving season. When the weather grows warmer and the days get longer, many people start thinking about making a fresh start. After all, spring symbolizes growth and rebirth.

Packing Tips for a Spring Move

Packing for a springtime move is a lot like getting ready to relocate at any other time of year. However, since March has a reputation for unpredictable weather, here are some helpful tips for you.

  • Don’t pack rain gear up with other items. Have raincoats, boots and umbrellas on hand to wear if necessary.
  • Keep a close eye on the forecast for the day of your move, and adjust your plans as needed.
  • Thoroughly seal your moving boxes to avoid their contents getting dusted with pollen.
  • Create an alternate plan for loading and unloading if the weather is an issue. For example, if you have a garage, put large or valuable items there, so your movers can pull the truck right up to the door and minimize the time these belongings will face the elements.
  • To prevent slip-and-fall injuries, have towels and mops on hand to wipe up any water from your entryway.

Turn Your Spring Cleaning Into Decluttering

When warmer weather comes around, many people welcome the new season by spring cleaning their houses. If you do this in preparation for a March move, you can also get rid of unwanted or unneeded items along the way. Consider hosting a garage sale so these belongings can find a second life in a new home. Alternatively, you can transfer rarely used possessions into a storage unit to give yourself more time to get organized.

A tidy home always shows better and makes it easier for people to envision themselves living there. As part of your spring cleaning, you might also want to paint a few walls to make them look bright and cheerful, or even add new window treatments to let more natural light stream in.
