2020 was a rough year for everyone. Plans were thrown off the rails everywhere, and many people's lives felt like they were frozen in place. Due to this, the expectation is that there weren't too many people moving.
In reality, this wasn't the case at all. According to a Pew Research Foundation study, 22% of adults in the United States either moved or knew someone that moved during 2020. The reasons for these moves varied from job changes to students leaving their college dorm rooms. Of course, with so many people moving, it would be a logical assumption that there will be less movement in 2021. It turns out that isn't the case.
According to a study performed by Neighbor.com, the expectation of 2021 is that moving is going to increase. While it's true that 2020 had a surprising increase in moving, it was still a rough year financially for many Americans. So we shouldn't be surprised when looking at the research data to see that most of those surveyed are moving for cost reasons.
However, a significant portion of people was surveyed that are doing so for another reason. 54 percent of people who plan on moving say they will now own a home. This surprising rise in homeownership could be something that people delayed last year due to the world's circumstances.
If you're planning on a move yourself in 2021, then all of this could be exciting or concerning. The more people who move, the more opportunity to purchase hold homes or find new apartments to move into, but it also means that moving services like ours will be busier.
The summer is a traditionally busy time of the year for movers, and with an expected increase in 2021, we're hoping to be very busy this year. However, we desire to make everyone's move as stress-free as possible.
This is why we offer services to make any move easier—such as same-day moving services, packing, and of course, providing a truck if needed. Need to hold some furniture temporarily? We even have storage services.
Let Family Moving and Storage make your move stress-free.
If you're planning on being one of the many people moving in 2021, then allow us to make that process easier for you once you use a moving service like ours; it's hard to ever go back to doing it yourself.
To learn more about what we mean, give us a call at 321-372-1005. We'll explain why a moving service like ours is not a want, but a necessity.
