There is a lot that goes into planning a move which can be stressful. If you are moving during a holiday though, then you may find it a bit difficult to plan your move around a time where you want to spend time with friends and family. That is where the residential movers at Kings Moving & Storage come in. Today, we will go over some important holiday moving tips to help make your holiday move a successful one.
Begin Packing Your Items Ahead of Time
You may consider moving your items yourself so, if that is the case, then you have to be proactive about your packing. Nothing is more stressful than doing some last-minute packing while still trying to make any celebrations on time. To get a good head start on your move, you should start packing your items as soon as you can so that way you don’t have to worry about it when your moving day approaches.
Schedule Your Move with a Moving Company
If you don’t want to handle your move yourself, then you should consider hiring a team of local or long-distance movers who will take care of it. Of course, if you do decide to hire a moving company, make sure you schedule your move ahead of time to avoid any potential headaches. As a holiday approaches, your chances of booking your move may be reduced because:
- Movers May Start Requesting Time Off
- Moving Companies May Be Closed
- There Are No Available Spots
So, make sure you schedule your move ahead of time. Another bonus perk is that if you look into hiring a moving company ahead of time, you can request a free estimate from them to see how much the move will cost.
Label Boxes & Give Away Items
When planning your holiday move, you may start to realize that you have a lot of items. To make the move-in process easier, you should label your boxes with household decorations and personal items so you can easily find them when you move into your new home. If you have items that you no longer use or need, then consider donating them to charities or giving them away to people you know.
Celebrate At Another Location & Avoid Big Purchases
As a holiday approaches, you may already start thinking about hosting an event at your home and buying items to really rein in that holiday feeling. If you are moving during a holiday though, then you may want to reconsider doing any of those things. If you host a celebration at your home, guests may not be in the most inviting space and extra purchases are just added moving costs for your move. What you should do is:
- Celebrate At Different Places
- Hold Off on Any Purchases
- Deliver Items to Your New Home
