In Quebec, customs, the climate, and lease conditions mean that the vast majority of moves take place in the spring and summer.
But sometimes, people need to move in the winter for a variety of reasons.
A disaster, a new job, budget constraints, problems with housing, etc.
Whatever the reason, you should know that a move in the winter is quite possible from a technical and logistical point of view.
5 Movers Quotes can help you plan a winter move and has valuable tips to offer you to help you save time and money.
While it is true that there are more options for housing during the summer, in terms of logistics, the opposite is true.
Winter is a time when you can take advantage of more moving options.
This is the low season for movers and you have the time to decide exactly when to move.
Even last-minute decisions to move are achievable (which is impossible in the summer).
Both Montreal and Quebec moving companies offer lower rates during the winter compared to peak seasons.
With the low demand for moving services, you will have greater bargaining power regarding the price and the moving date you prefer, especially when the weather is bad.
It is advisable to hire professionals who have experience with moving in tough winter conditions and who have the required equipment.
Moreover, the owners of residential buildings are much more flexible in the winter than when leases usually expire.
As mentioned earlier, the rates of movers are lower in the winter.
Compared with periods of high demand (from June to September) which should be avoided strictly because of price, the variation can reach 50% (less).
It is important to have all the information you need beforehand to know the rate increases and decreases according to the calendar for each moving company.
Moreover, even in times of lower demand, it is advantageous not to move on weekends and during monthly transitions (between the 28th of the month and the 2nd of the following month).
Obviously, a move set during Christmas and January 1st will cost much more.
For that matter, do not plan to move on a school break, religious holiday, or holiday.
The demand will be higher as well as costs.
From fall to spring, contact the moving companies at least a month or two before your desired moving date.
For a summer move, it must be done three months in advance.
