It is that time of year again, and many people are moving in the Fall! Leaves are starting to turn yellow, red, and orange. Shops are serving Pumpkin Spice everything! We see people walking around with light jackets on, and in the mornings sometimes we can feel the crispness in the air. Fall is right around the corner. Many people view September 1st as the start of Fall, while others use the astronomical start of Fall as September 22nd. Either way, if you have a move planned in the upcoming couple of months, these tips are for you!

3 Tips for Moving in the Fall

1. Make it safer for the professional movers and yourself by ensuring that leaves are not scattered everywhere. You will find that wet leaves on walkways can be a recipe for disaster! They become slick and often when moving can cause falls. Plus, do you want wet leaves tracked throughout your home? No! Instead, be sure that these are raked up and off of the walkway.

2. Be prepared with weather-related items on hand. For example, have a broom ready to go if the wind kicks up and all those leaves start to come into your home or pile up on the walkways. Keep old towels or plastic ready to put onto the floor in case it starts to rain, the same can be said for keeping an umbrella close as well!

3. Dress appropriately. When Fall strikes, the weather can be anything from a mild summer day to a wet and cold day. You need to dress in a way that will allow for it all. Light layers are a great option so you can always remove a layer if you get too warm, then add the layer back when you get cold. When moving in the Fall, light layers are the key to comfort!
