What Time Is The Right Time To Move?

Are you someone who has said they are going to move or that they want to move, but has never actually done it? Have you been waiting for the perfect time to do so, but are uncertain about when that ideal time is?  

Here at Augusta Movers, we want to reassure you that this thought process is totally normal. It happens all the time to people around the globe, seeing as a move is a really big change that requires a lot of work and planning. The good news is that there are some important factors you can consider when trying to come to a decision about this stage of life, and our team wants to talk about them in detail. 

Your Life & Enjoyment as a Whole 

One of the main reasons why people feel the need to move is due to a lack of purpose and happiness in a certain place. These feelings can come from: 

  • The types of people in an area 
  • The amount of people within an area (too much or too little) 
  • The economic situation of an area (inflation, job opportunities, etc.) 
  • The weather within an area (too hot, too cold) 
  • The safety within an area (crime, risks from mother nature) 
  • The desire for change 
  • And much, much more 

Regardless of how many of these apply to you, coming up with a pros and cons list is usually a good way of better determining whether or not a place is ideal for your life and your needs. For example, while many love the idea of moving away, leaving family and friends is too big of a burden. If you are fine with using technology to talk to your loved ones back home, however, leaving your circle may not be as much of an issue. 

When it comes down to it, the reasons why you do or do not want to move will all depend on what you value most. Consider your most important values, then see if the negatives outweigh the positives. If they do, it might be in your best interest to try something new and move. Above all, you should do what makes you happy and consider the finances/resources you will need to do so. 

Employment Transfers 

In a world where the job market is constantly shifting and changing, moves due to your job are commonplace. Whether you decide to make this move or not will entirely depend on how secure and satisfied you feel within your current job. Imagine where you see yourself in five years— do you see yourself still working at your current job? Moves (especially cross-country) are huge life changing decisions, so making sure you have a job where you’re able to grow or feel comfortable long-term is vital.  


As the body ages, certain parts stop working as well as they used to. Climbing up stairs can be a huge hassle, getting into the shower can be a battle, and even walking from one end of the house to another can feel like a marathon if the space is wide enough. Regardless of the struggles you have been facing living in your home at an advanced age, you deserve comfort and convenience. In order to live a better life in your latter years, residing within a space that is easily accessible and stress-free is very important. 

If you’re a senior who lives in a larger home with multiple flights of stairs, we highly recommend that you move into a space that is better suited to your needs. This doesn’t always have to be a retirement home or an apartment, however— single bungalows are the perfect space for those in older age brackets. This way, you can relax knowing all of your home needs are within your reach, saving you any potential struggle or safety risks.
