Your guide to moving while making the holidays special.
Moving can add extra stress to the holiday season. Follow some of our tips and tricks to navigate holiday season moving!
Most people have more days off school and work during the holiday season. Rather than taking off extra vacation days, the holidays offer a built-in time to move and get settled. So even though it might be an extra busy time of year, in many cases it’s worth fitting in your move.
But how can you celebrate the holidays and make a big move at the same time? Your holiday season will be different from other years, no doubt. But that’s no reason to not make the most of the most special time of the year.
Surviving Holiday Season Moving
For residential moving, it’s important to take some time off to be with your loved ones. The thing is, taking time off from the move requires extra planning and efficiency, so here are a few tips to help with your holiday moving plans.
- 1. Ensure your mover is a licensed and certified in their field. That way you’ll avoid moving scams and make sure your belongings arrive safe and on time. Arrow Moving offers experienced, licensed, uniformed and professional movers for all moving needs.
- 2. Separate your belongings between those you’ll need before and after the holiday season. For example, pack gifts, cooking supplies and special clothes separately. Label the boxes clearly. When you arrive at your new home, only unpack the boxes necessary for the holidays. Separating “before” and “after” boxes is a good way to reduce stress, as you won’t need to sort through your newly arrived belongings.
- 3. Put together a holiday moving kit for young children. Include holiday–themed coloring books, games and other activities. If you have a long drive ahead, make sure to include calming holiday music and classic movies. This helps your children understand that this is still a special time of year, even with a big move.
