Moving During the Holidays

While others are getting ready to unpack and setup their holiday decor, you’re in the process of packing it and moving it. Whether you are moving long-distance or moving down the street, moving during the holiday season can feel intimidating. Besides all the festivities and distractions, you have to plan a serious life change as well! Thankfully, there are easier ways to move this season. To make sure your move is as easy as possible here are a few things to consider. Check out these tips so you’re prepared and don’t turn into a Grinch!

1. Timing

While the holiday season isn’t considered peak moving time, it can be an extremely busy time for movers. If you’re planning on hiring a moving company, it would be wise to book them as soon as possible. Keep in mind that moving on busy holidays like Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Christmas might mean some slight delays as well.

2. Budget

With all of the gifts and holiday travel, it can be a challenge to stay on budget this time of year. Don’t worry, if you’re hiring movers, there are ways to save money by moving mid-week and avoiding holiday weekends You can also choose different moving packages catered to your needs if you want to save a few dollars.

3. Packing

There’s nothing a little sadder than an undecorated home during November and December. To lift your spirits, we suggest putting your holiday décor to the side in clearly labeled boxes. Or ask movers to put them in your living room upon arrival in your new home. This way you can feel a little festive during all the changes.

4. Weather

Unfortunately, there’s no way to control the weather on moving day. If you’re relocating to or from a colder part of the country, be prepared for some seriously freezing temps. Thankfully, you can follow a few steps to make sure your move goes as smooth as possible. Make sure you have proper moving supplies and winter-ready clothes to deal with the weather. Wear boots, hats, gloves. Keep your eyes peeled for slippery sidewalks and stairs and don’t forget to have your heat and electricity turned on in our new home by the time you get there.
