If you’re planning to move to Tucson, AZ, there’s a good chance you’ll want to know when to make the move. The time of day when you choose to move can have a big impact on the experience of the move, as well as the pricing.
Let’s get some moving basics out of the way, then talk about what is specifically relevant to Tucson movers.
When Not to Make the Move
In general, you don’t want to make your move between May 15 and September 15. This is the period of time in which students are unleashed onto the housing market. With so many people deciding to move so quickly, you’re going to have a harder time getting a moving van.
You also don’t want to move on the 1st of any month. It’s appealing to move on the 1st because you want to move as soon as the lease comes through, but the fact is that it’s appealing to everyone. With so many people moving on the 1st of the month, moving van prices are probably going to be higher. This makes it actually cheaper to move in the second week of the month.
It’s also best to avoid the weekends. With so many people on the road — some of them drunk drivers — it’s not worth moving Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
Best Times for Tucson Movers
Now that we know some of the general don’ts of moving times, let’s talk about when it’s best for Tucson movers to make the move.
First off, you’re going to want to start your moving day as early as possible. It may be painful if you’re not a morning person, but dawn is your best friend for two reasons.
One, moving can take a while, so you want to have as much of the day as possible to get things done. Two, the Tucson sun is hot, so you want to start your day before it’s beating down on the city too much.
As for day of the week, you’re going to want to avoid Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for the aforementioned reasons. You’re also going to want to stay away from Monday, because that’s the day when traffic is heaviest in Tucson.
