It’s a dream come true — you’ve just purchased your new Florida home and it sits right along the beach front with pristine views of white sand and blue shores. But as you’re preparing your current home for relocation, you’re faced with a new dilemma known as a vacation rush: it’s not often that your community is an attraction for others all across the nation.
To ensure you have a streamlined move with as little disruption and hassle as possible, it’s important to take into account peak travel times in beach towns. As a premier moving and storage provider, DeVries Relocation has put together a list of a few moving tips to make your move as simplified as possible.
How To Avoid The Vacation Rush During Your Move
Research Traffic Times
Varying from city to city, traffic times can often make or break your moving experience. Be sure to find out when peak traffic times are in your city, especially during the vacation rush. If it is a center of business or near a highway, you can experience a lot of traffic during rush hours. However, if you’re in a quieter area near a retirement community, traffic may not be as much of a factor.
Summer Moving Pains
Avoiding crowded moving conditions takes more than just monitoring traffic. With summer being the most popular moving season due to school schedules and better weather conditions, it’s best to avoid moving during this time if possible. Since Florida is known as a vacation haven, summer also means you’ll face traffic from beach goers on summer vacation.
Avoid The Holidays
Much for the same reason you won’t want to move during summer, you want to avoid moving during the holidays. If you choose to move during peak vacation periods, like during Christmas break, labor day weekend, and other extended federal holidays, expect heavy traffic from snow birds and vacationers, as this is definitely the type of vacation rush we’d all like to avoid.
It’s tough moving to a popular beach town, but the effort is well worth it. If you’re looking for high-quality moving companies in South Florida, look no further than DeVries Relocation. Call us or fill out our online form to request your free moving estimate.
