5 Tips to Make a Holiday Move Less StressfulPosted on: Thursday, December 12th, 2019
Moving during the holidays is not easy, and it can be quite stressful. However, when using a professional moving company you can eliminate some of the stress. And we have a few tips that can help to make this even less stressful!
- Be sure to contact the movers as soon as you know when you are moving. During the holidays many movers take vacation to visit family and moving dates may be harder to get during this time. So act early to secure the best date for you!
- Try to avoid being the home that everyone gathers at to celebrate. Moving into a new home is already stressful enough, however, adding a celebration that you are responsible for planning adds an enormous amount of stress. See if another family member can do this, and you can still always offer to bring items for the celebration to contribute!
- Take some time out when moving into enjoy the holidays. For example, take a walking tour of the lights in your area to put your into the festive spirit! Taking a few hours away may give you the battery recharge that you need to plow through packing or unpacking.
- Be aware of the weather and know that last minute changes could happen. While we always do whatever we can to make sure that your moving day happens when scheduled, in the event of awful weather it may be postponed. After all, no one wants to move in the middle of an ice storm that has shut down power and is treacherous on the roadways.
- On moving day, make sure that the cold weather has not made your walkway a slip and slide! If the days before have been dry, just cold, you are safe. However, if there is ice, be sure to spread some salt so that no one has an accident. You don’t want to spend your holidays with a casted foot or arm from falling and breaking bones on the ice!
Above all else, be sure that you have organized and planned your move, just as you would if you were not moving during the holidays. The more organized you are, the less stress you are going to feel later!
