Here we go. Easter always (generally) symbolises the beginning of the high season in the mobility and removals industry.
Not everyone thinks about it, but one half of a removals firm’s work takes place during the 3 summer months (mid June to mid September). And the other half is spread over 9 months.
This is for a very simple reason: No parent wants to interrupt their child’s school year mid-way to effect a removal or undergo a relocation, especially internationally. So our industry goes frantic.
Which means that all moving companies are overstaffed in winter and understaffed in summer. Otherwise you would be over-dimensioned and un-competitive.
It’s a tough seasonality to have to live with, since most people around you are taking it easy while your office work is at it’s highest intensity. And Easter is when the referee blows the whistle to indicate the start of the season.
It’s my favorite time of year.
