When preparing for a move, packing can be the one thing that many of us dread the most. The unpacking can be kind of fun. We get to organize our new place “just so” and for at least that first blissful month everything is organized and where it belongs, at least until someone uses it for the first time and promptly misplaces it!
You may be wondering if there is a perfect time to move. The perfect time is really what works best for you, your family, and your situation. February is the beginning of the peak season for moving, however. Here in Florida, the sun is getting warmer and the birds are chirping more. We are starting to wake up from what was actually a cold winter for our area!
Florida is a big state. It is beautiful with an amazing array of different landscape types. There are the swampy, bayou areas, the farmland, and ranching areas, and here in Brevard County, we get to enjoy the beach! There is no ugly part of our Sunshine State!

We were so honored and proud to be a part of this amazing show as well as giving back to this extraordinary family!
“North American Van Lines is Military Makeover’s Official Moving Partner. We can’t even start without them: they show up early and then work hard, professionally packing, moving and managing all the family’s belongings. Their well-trained team members work quickly and efficiently without damaging the belongings or the home they are working in. They brought in their local team, from Melbourne, FL once again with innovative new, on-site moving and storage ideas. Another way they turned a hard job into a great experience. A pleasure to work with and always first in on our makeovers.”
