It can be a long and exhausting process to move, and when you have kids, things tend to only get worse. Luckily, the process can go a lot smoother if you choose to pack and move during the summertime. If you know that you need to move in the foreseeable future and have some time to plan, you may want to consider waiting until summer to make the move if you have children, especially younger ones. Here are a few reasons why.

No Scheduling Conflicts With the School

Throughout the school year, it can be difficult trying to figure out a good time to pack everything up and try to move to a new house due to the variety of events that are going on at school. From having to drop off and pick up the kids to helping out with homework, it can be tricky to find the time to get everything done. By moving during the summer, you have plenty of time to pack and organize while not having to worry about keeping track of the kids' every move.

The Weather Is Relatively Nice

Mud is always tracked inside the house when it is rainy outside. This can be a significant inconvenience when you are trying to get packed up and moved. This is true for both you while you are packing up and for the movers when they are moving the boxes to and from the moving truck. The last thing you or the movers have time for is to stop to clean up the mud from the floor, placing everyone even further behind schedule than what you all probably already are. Luckily, the summer weather is nice and dry, making it easier to keep the house clean as the kids run in and out of the house (although you would like to keep this to a minimum) and the movers are transferring boxes from the house to the truck. 

Smoother Transition

Moving is hard on everyone, and this includes the children, particularly if they are leaving some close friends behind. By choosing to move during the summertime, you will be giving them the opportunity to adjust to the new house and community before they are forced back into a tight school routine. This essentially helps make the transition from what they have known to the unknown much easier. Plus, since it is summertime, there is a better chance that their friends can come visit the new house, and they also have a chance to get out and explore the area, giving them the opportunity to make new friends before the first day of school.
