TORONTO, June 27, 2014 /CNW/ - According to the last Census published in 2011, 4.3 Million Canadians move annually; that's approximately 1.6 million families; approximately 13 per cent of those families move in June. Of the families moving in June, approximately 1/3 chose June 30 to move; in Toronto, this means 30,000 people move on this day.
Said Chuck Resnick, Vice President, Marketing & Operations, Two Men and A Truck – Canada, "The reasons for this moving day reality are,
- the late June school year end makes it easier for parents to move without disrupting their kids' education schedule;
- parents want to be moved into their new homes well before the kids go back to their new school;
- property taxes and rental leases are due for the mid year renewal period at the end of June, prompting renters to move to new homes;
- with the Canada Day long weekend, families get an extra non-work day to unpack, no snow, minimal chances of rain.
"These circumstances make June 30 the most favorable moving day."
