How to Move During the Holidays!
Moving during the holidays is not the most ideal time to move. A lot of us prefer to move during the summer months. There is less interruption of school schedules and the daily routine. But if you find yourself having to move during the busy holiday season of November and December, here are some tips to keep you sane and still enjoy the holidays.
- Hire professionals. We obviously give this advice to everyone because we are a moving company, but in order to keep your stress levels at a minimal during this hectic time, heed our advice. At T-N-T Moving Systems, we know how to move. We can provide a full service move- including packing, loading, transporting, and unloading. Or we can help you with any part of your move. Our estimates are free and based on your needs.
- Keep Family Traditions. As much as possible, try to keep family traditions in place. If you and your family will be moving near a holiday, prepare in advance. Have a family meeting and discuss ways to celebrate the holiday during the move. If you have recently moved, consider going out to a restaurant for the big family meal or have it catered. This way cooking in a kitchen that is unpacked will not be an issue.
- Don’t feel bad if you can’t do everything. Remember moving is a temporary situation. There will be plenty of time to get settled after the holidays. Try shopping online and use gift-wrapping options if available. This will save time.
- Send out Holiday Cards. Even if you just send e-cards, this is a good way to inform your friends and family of your new address. Holiday cards and gifts will be sure to follow you to your new home.
- Pack Holiday Decorations Separately. In order to keep the holiday spirit alive, consider sprucing up your new house with holiday decorations. This will help the whole family get into the season and make your new house feel more like home.
