It’s an unpleasant, harsh reality. We are all subject to unexpected loss of valuables—whether identity theft, a ransacked automobile, or a burglarized home.

Today is the first day of spring. It heralds a season of rejuvenation, of new life, new hope. (For allergy sufferers, it also says “pass the tissues.”) Here in northern California, you can tell spring is in the air. Garage and yard sales popping up, and people are going outdoors in ever greater numbers to enjoy our famously wonderful weather.

You’ve decided to move. You’ve also decided you’d rather not take the task on by yourself. But, how do you find the right mover? You have a lot of options, and sorting them out can confusing. Here are a few tips I recommend as you consider which moving company to use. (Full disclosure: although we here at Ernie’s Van & Storage would like to be your ultimate choice, we offer this advice regardless—we want you to make your best move, with or without us.)

As the good book says, “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1) Were I to offer a “furniture moving” twist to this famous passage, I might include this verse: “a time to move and a time to stay planted.”
It’s a well-known fact that most movers and storage companies, including moving companies in California, are extra busy in the summer—and not so busy during the winter. To this point: Atlas moving agents, like Ernie’s Van & Storage, handle almost twice as many interstate moves in July as they do in February.

Grass Valley gets about 54 inches of rain a year and as much as a foot or more of snow. Rocklin is not quite as wet—only 32 inches of annual rainfall and just a dusting of snow. But for both locations, about 80 percent of the annual precipitation falls between November and March, with December and January being the wettest months. So, if you move during the wintertime, there’s a fair chance you may have to deal with some rain or snow. Use our moving company's Winter Moving Checklist to keep your belongings safe during transit.
