When is the best time to move to a new apartment?


If you're moving to a college or university community, summer offers the best selection of available apartments. However, because school is out, summer is the most popular time for moving in general. Typically, this means having to book a mover further in advance.

In urban areas, the best time to move varies. People tend to stay put during the November and December holiday season, so you may see fewer apartments available. On the other hand, you have a better chance of finding a deal.

Late April is usually a good time for moving apartments. You can beat the busy summer season, and the weather is typically mild enough to make moving more pleasant.

Get quotes from moving companies six weeks before your apartment move to make sure movers are available and ensure you get the best deal.


Ultimately, the best time for your apartment move depends on multiple factors. Some, like your city's availability of housing, are beyond your control. Talk to your local Atlas mover. You'll get good advice and inside knowledge about the rental community you are moving into.
