Moving during holiday seasons can be a hassle, but it doesn’t have to be with help from your friendly Denver moving companies. Remember that some of the worst days to move during the holiday season are the weekends right before Christmas and New Year’s. The closer we get to the New Year, the more you have to worry about slippy pathways and the potential for soggy boxes.
If you are packing up presents and gift wrapping items, make sure to pack them separately so they don’t get lost in a sea of boxes during your move. And if you are feeling in the holiday spirit, you can unpack those holiday treasures as soon as you move into your new home. In the meantime, pack away as many of the holiday decorations as you can. The more that is packed now, the less you have to worry about close to move-in day. If you are looking to still decorate during your move, stack a few boxes in a triangle shape and draw a tree — you can even put stickers on them as little ornaments. It may not be the decorations you are used to, but it is something to give your home a little holiday cheer.
If you have pets, board them during your move. No one wants any stepped-on tails or “Houdini” inspired escapes. Find a local pet daycare, and your pup will be tuckered out by the time the movie is over, and you will be able to relax for the night in your new home without the worry of Fido bouncing off the walls in excitement.
With the holiday season comes lots of greeting cards, be sure to change your address online or at your local post office. Then wait while the coming weeks you have holiday hallmarks to fill your home with cheer. Take advantage of the holiday work schedule and use some of your time off to get packing done early so you can enjoy an effortless move to your new home.
If you have your own greeting cards to send out, send them out to family and friends early. Checking that off your list gives you one less thing to worry about during your move. You can even use them as an invite for a housewarming party and tell friends and family about your new address.
In addition to updating your address with the post office, make sure you remember to update other important places like your bank and other organizations. Be aware many businesses change their operating hours during the holiday season, so consider that when making calls.
Check the weather in the weeks before your move, and keep in touch with your movers to make sure that everyone has a plan in case a winter storm comes in unexpectedly. Don’t be caught without movers this holiday season. Contact Eden’s Moving and stay warm and dry this holiday season while you’re moving into your new home.
