If you’re moving into a new house, there’s a lot of excitement ahead of you — but also a few challenges. One of the biggest challenges, of course, is moving all your belongings from your old home into your new home. And if you’re planning to move during the spring? There are a few season-specific tips you should keep in mind! By learning how to overcome certain issues, you can ensure your moving process is as smooth and stress-free as possible.
Protect From Pollen
Spring is absolutely beautiful with all the flowers and trees blooming, but it also has a lot of pollen in the air. Pollen can cause allergies and discomfort, so be sure to protect your belongings from being coated in it as you move. Cover your belongings with moving blankets or tarps while they sit outside between the house and the truck. That way, you won’t build up any pollen residue that you’ll then bring into your new home.
Host a Yard Sale
People love yard sales any time of year, but especially in the spring when it’s a great time to spend the day outside. If you want to downsize or get rid of belongings before your spring move, host a yard sale. You can make a few extra bucks and ensure you’re not bringing unwanted items into your new space.
Keep an Eye on the Weather
The weather is much more pleasant in spring than in winter, but it’s also a lot less predictable! Keep an eye on the weather so you know what to wear when you’re packing, and so you can be prepared for any inclement weather events. Wear layers like a removable jacket over a long-sleeve or short-sleeve shirt. That way, you can be comfortable when it’s cool in the morning, then remove the top layer once the daytime warmth arrives and you’re working hard moving boxes.
Keep Pests and Allergens Out of Your Home
While moving, there’s a good chance that your home door will be propped open during the process. Consider investing in a temporary bug screen for your door, so you can leave the door open without worrying about bugs or pollen floating in. That way, you can push past the screen to enter and exit with your arms full, but you won’t leave a wide open doorway.
