May is National Moving Month

Welcome to peak moving season! That’s right, May is celebrated as National Moving Month because it signals the start of the busiest moving season of the year. Fun fact, a moving company was the first to nominate May as National Moving Month in 1997. Funner fact, May is also National Cheese Month – thoughts for a later day on that. Back to moving, peak moving season is generally considered to run from Memorial Day to Labor Day weekend, which makes sense because school is out and there’s less disruption.
