Getting ready for a holiday is something that a lot of people look forward to, but if you are moving during a holiday, then you may have a different experience. Planning for a move in general requires a lot of your time, which is why moving during a holiday can be tricky and stressful. Fortunately, there are some tips to help you enjoy a smoother holiday moving experience, and the residential movers at Solomon & Sons Relocation Services will go over some of those important tips!
The Sooner You Start Packing, The Better
If you decide that you want to pack your items yourself, then don’t do it at the last moment. If you start packing your items the day before your holiday move, then you may be spending all day and more packing up your items instead of spending some quality time with any friends or family. So, if you want to enjoy the holidays without thinking about your move, then packing your items well-ahead of your moving day is a good start.
Contact A Moving Company In Your Area
Like any other move, you can hire a moving company who can take care of your holiday move for you. Contacting a team of local or long-distance movers can help you get a pricing estimate as well as service recommendations to move your items. Of course, if you do want to schedule them for your holiday move, make sure you do it way ahead of time. If you don’t, then you may encounter some issues such as:
- Movers Requesting Time Off
- Moving Company Is Closed
- They Are Booked Up
Organize Your Boxes & Donate Items You Don’t Need
When you begin packing your items, you may notice that you have a lot of items that need to be organized. Fortunately, you can simply label your boxes based on the items you have packed in them that way once you are moved into your new space, you can quickly identify what goes where. If you have a lot of items that you don’t need, then you can give them away to friends and family or donate them to a charity of your choice.
Avoid Hosting Celebrations & Big Purchases
With holidays usually come some celebrations and festivities, which is why it is no surprise why you may start decorating your home and consider hosting a party there. You’ll want to avoid hosting any parties and buying large items though since planning a party while preparing for a move can be overwhelming and more items means more moving costs. So, for a less stressful moving experience, consider:
- Shipping Items To Your New Home
- Avoiding Big Purchases
- Host Celebrations At Another Venue
Use These Holiday Moving Tips
Being not prepared for your holiday move can lead to a less than stellar moving experience. Fortunately, with these moving tips, you can get a good idea of what needs to be done for your holiday move. This, in turn, can lead to more time with friends and family and less time worrying about your move.
