It makes perfect sense. Families prefer to move when school is not in session—it’s easier for kids to make a transition. (In Rocklin, schools dismiss on June 8 this year and go back in session on August 16. In Grass Valley, the last day of school is June 9, and class resumes on August 17.) The school calendar has a significant impact on the moving industry. It creates a high demand for moving services during a single three-month span every year. Our movers and packers here at Ernie’s Van & Storage are accustomed to this surge, and we flex to meet it for families moving to or from Rocklin and Grass Valley and surrounding communities.

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.

If you are moving to Granite Bay, you are going to find out for yourself why this community calls itself a “great place to live, work, and play.” For starters, it is located at the edge of the picturesque Sacramento Valley, near the graceful sweep of the Sierra Nevada foothills. The weather is generally pleasant, and although summer temperatures reach easily into the 90s, the air is dry and evenings are cool. Winters are mild, with lows around 40. Good schools, low crime rate, and a high quality of life make moving to Granite Bay attractive.
