The holiday season is a time for family gatherings, making memories, and bringing holiday traditions to life, but it is also one of the few times of the year that people across the country have a break from work and school obligations. That means that it is also a prime time for making a move to a new home! While planning a household move during the holidays may seem like an impossible task, the crew at Central Moving & Storage has a few holiday moving tips for making the process as seamless as possible.
Whether you are staying in the local area or packing up your family to move across the country, follow these suggestions for making the most of the experience during one of the busiest times of year.
Holiday Moving Tips
- Secure a Provider ASAP: You may not be the only one taking a few days off around the holidays! Orlando moving companies may have limited hours and crews available during this time of year, so start researching and securing a provider as soon as you know you’ll be moving. Also, be sure to ask about any additional charges or fees associated with a holiday-season move!
- Start Packing Early: Typically, you’d be bringing out boxes decorations and holiday décor during this time of year, but if you’re moving, you want to start packing as soon as possible. Go room to room and pack any items that you don’t use on a daily basis to make a dent in the task long before moving day arrives. It is also helpful to secure short- or long-term storage so you can move unneeded items out of your home as you make progress.
- Focus on Organization: Staying organized is the only way to get through dealing with a move and celebrating the holidays. If you can plan the move after Christmas, that’s ideal, but if not, start making those to-do lists! Prioritize the holiday traditions that are a “must”, and make a detailed plan on when and how you will balance holiday activities with moving preparations.
- Find the Fun in the Process: Moving can be stressful and time-consuming, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the fun of the season along the way! Find creative solutions for joining in holiday festivities without affecting your moving process, such as planning a holiday dinner at a family member’s house, taking a tour of neighborhood lights, and putting up minimal decorations to still enjoy a holiday tree.
