Did you know that the AMSA (the American Moving and Storage Association) has officially dubbed May as “National Moving Month?” Well, now you do! So, what does it actually mean, anyway? No, you don’t have to send your local movers a card or anything.
Think about it. The month of May is when we typically see flowers blooming, moving sales, and “For Sale” signs going up in the neighborhood. So, the spring is a big season for moving. In fact, about 35 million people move somewhere during this time. That’s why AMSA has declared National Moving Month to be in May.
The moving season is actually from May until September. During this period, federal and state authorities as well as consumer watchdogs such as the BBB take extra precautions to make sure people like you are aware of potential moving scams and keep you protected. The truth is, most people move so infrequently that they aren’t aware of how to go about moving the right way.
National Moving Month is a way for professional moving companies to connect with people interested in relocating, like you. This season is a great time for state moving and storage associations to help you get organized and develop a plan for relocation.
Remember, moving should be an adventure, not a hassle, so let National Moving Month get you going in the right direction.
