While most people move during the spring and summer, sometimes living circumstances change and a move during the holidays is necessary. Here are some tips for balancing this major life change with one of the busiest times of the year.

If you’re planning your move around the holidays, you might have decided to skip decorating this year. But what if there were a way to decorate for Christmas without creating a lot of extra work when it comes time to pack up? Here are some holiday decorating ideas to cheer up your home and give you some extra moving motivation that are easy to remove and set up again at your new house.

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.

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.
