Household Moving Tips to Denver, CO
Denver is the largest city in the state of Colorado by population, which currently sits at over 663,800 residents. Denver is actually a consolidated city-county – the borders for the city of Denver are also the same for that of Denver County, and the governments are consolidated into one. This makes Denver the largest city and also the largest county in the state of Colorado. The city is a major logistics hub and transportation center, as it is the largest city within a 500 mile radius. This makes Denver a popular area for people to move to and from, and with a rather mixed and varied economy, people from all different professions are constantly moving into and out of the area. This tends to make household moving costs more affordable, at least depending on the route your moving company will need to take.
Up until the 1970’s, Denver experienced growth decade after decade, ballooning up to 514,000 residents in 1970. However, during the next twenty years crime spiked and people began to flee the city center, which caused a drop in population. Now, however, the city has renewed efforts in attracting new businesses, cleaning up the city and making it a more peaceful and more enjoyable area to live. This has, in turn, attracted new residents, which has helped bolster the household moving industry in regards to services to and from Denver. Most areas of Denver, including its myriad suburbs, are becoming more and more affordable to ship to or from, at least during the spring and summer – fall and winter tends to be the slowest part of the moving season.
The weather in Denver doesn’t help the cause; during the fall and winter, snow is common, as the city sits at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Snow and ice are not friends to household moving companies, who will often try to avoid them if they can. The main route through the city is I-70, a major east-west Interstate highway, but there is also I-25 which runs north-south. While these see plenty of household moving traffic, it’s mostly during the spring and summer when the snows are gone that they’re able to get into and out of there without trouble. The moving industry is also more active in the spring and summer, namely for that reason but also because kids are out of school and some parents are able to make more time to organize a move. This makes the spring and summer the most cost-effective time of the year to ship, at least into and out of Denver.
