Planning and executing a move can be a very stress-inducing experience. From packing up all of your household goods to safely driving them and unpacking them, there are many things that you have to account for during a move, which is why this stress can be compounded if you are moving during the holidays. That is why the residential movers at Arnoff Moving & Storage have put together some tips that can help you if you are moving during a holiday. 

Contact A Moving Company Before Your Moving Date

One of the best ways you can relieve yourself of some stress if you are moving during a holiday is by hiring a moving company to take care of your move for you. Of course, if you do plan on hiring a moving company, you have to make sure that they have some open availability. As a holiday approaches, there may likely be a lot of employees requesting time off which can limit the number of new customers they can bring on. So, if you want to hire a moving company to help you move during the holidays, make sure you:

  • Contact Them for A Quote
  • Ask About Their Availability Ahead of Time
  • Let Them Know What Services You Need

Hold Celebrations & Events at Other Locations

Many people celebrate a holiday by hosting events at their homes. Unfortunately, if you are moving during the holidays, you should strongly consider holding events and celebrations in another location, especially if your moving day is rapidly approaching. Preparing your home for a move can lead to boxes being seen around your home and rooms feeling emptier than usual simply because they are being packed up. If you do want to still hold celebrations in your home but don’t want to worry about packing up and transporting your household items, then contact a team of local and long-distance movers who provide services like: 

  • Full-Service Packing & Unpacking 
  • Specialized Moving Services
  • And more! 

Avoid Purchasing More Items 

Moving costs take into account the number of items you need moved. The more items you have, the higher the cost is for your move. So, if you want to avoid paying extra on your moving expenses, then make sure you avoid buying more items for your home until you are able to move into your new home. You can even consider shipping items to your new home if you do want to purchase them. 

Consider Donating Items You No Longer Need

A great way to ease the load of your holiday move is by donating or giving away any items you no longer need. While packing your items, you might realize you don’t really need all of them to be moved to your new home. That is why you should look into donating them to local charities or giving them away to people who will have good use for them.
