How to Stay Festive When Moving During the Holidays

Moving to a new home doesn’t always happen during the spring and summer. For many families, moves happen unexpectedly, and when they happen during the winter months, the task can become even more hectic. Not only are they faced with winter weather, but they’re often forced to let the holidays take a back seat. If you’re planning on working with a Colorado moving company during the holiday season, there’s no reason you can’t still enjoy the holidays. Here are a few simple ways to keep your holiday spirit alive, even when you’re packing up your house.

Pick a Few Favorite Decorations

Decorations set the tone for your home during the holidays. While it may be tempting to avoid putting them out right before a move, doing so can make you lose sight of the holidays. Instead, pick a few of your favorite holiday decorations and set them out. You don’t have to go crazy. This way, you’ll still be able to enjoy the things that bring you joy during the holidays without significantly increasing the number of items on your last-minute packing list.

Pack Decorations Last

Part of the magic of the holidays, especially for kids, is having the decorations out as long as possible. This can be difficult when you’re moving, but it’s not impossible. Instead of packing the decorations with the rest of the items in the house, save them for last. You can even pack them in your car so you can enjoy them until the very last minute. Once you get to the new home, those boxes can be the first you unpack. When you have young children, unpacking and decorating the new house can take a lot of the stress out of moving to a new or unfamiliar area.

Continue Family Traditions

Everyone has family traditions that they enjoy participating in during the holidays. For some, it’s decorating a Christmas tree. For others, it might be ordering an extra-large pizza and binge-watching horror movies. Whatever your favorite tradition is, try your best to keep it up even when you’re moving. Remember, moving can be stressful, and keeping up with your traditions can help take some of that stress out of the situation.

Plan a New Tradition

Moving is the perfect time to establish a new tradition once you reach the new home. Start planning something you and your family can enjoy, especially if your move falls on or near the holidays. This will give everyone something to look forward to while they’re packing up. The next year, everyone can participate in the tradition again once you’re all settled at the new home.

Moving during the holidays doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your enjoyment of the season. It just means you need to get creative. While you’re busy focusing on the holidays, let the experts at Eden’s Moving and Storage handle the packing and driving for you. We’ll take care of your belongings as if they were our own so you can focus on enjoying your time with your loved ones. Contact us today for a free estimate.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Eden's Moving was one of the best moving experiences I've ever had with a moving company, the movers were timely, professional, hard working, considerate, and knowledgeable. Dawn the scheduler and front office personnel was outstanding with her professionalism and communication. I highly recommend Eden's Moving to anyone seeking movers they will not let you down!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
