4 Tips From A Moving Services Company For Surviving A Holiday Move

Moving Services Frisco TXAt Movers Plus, we not only offer moving services that you can use no matter where in the state of Texas you’re moving, we also offer moving services you can use no matter when you’re moving.  The optimal time of year for a move is always late spring to mid-summer, especially if you have kids.  Warm weather offers more favorable moving conditions and your kids are out of school.  Conversely, the worst times of year to move are in the winter (yes, even in Texas) and around the holidays.  Unfortunately, not everyone has the option to choose when they move. If you’re one of those unlucky people who must move around the holidays, here are 4 tips to ensure you and your family survive the ordeal:

Get Organized
Start by purging your belongings.  Moving is a great excuse for getting rid of all those things you never use or have outgrown.  You can have a big yard sale or donate items to local charities; you can even get your kids involved in the process.  If they’re reluctant to get rid of old toys, you can motivate them by telling them that they’ll be making room for the new toys they’ll be getting during the holidays.  Once you’ve purged, start boxing everything up (if you’re packing yourself) and make sure to label the boxes.  This will make unpacking that much easier. Make sure you pack Christmas or other holiday decorations together so that they’ll be easy to find when you get to your new house.  Hanging even one string of lights or a wreath will make your new house feel like home.

Don’t Be A Grinch
Kids deal with upheaval more easily than adults – they sometimes even find it enjoyable.  But that doesn’t mean that their whole holiday has to be turned upside down or forgotten.  Make sure that you have some wrapped gifts ready for them, before or after your move, so they’ll know that at least one tradition hasn’t been forgotten in the rush to get from one house to another.  If you don’t have kids, it’s still a good idea to take a little break to do what you usually do during the holidays, even if it’s just going to a movie or going ice skating.

Eat Out
Food is a big part of most holiday celebrations.  As an adult, a big turkey dinner may be the one thing you’re going to miss while you’re moving.  Because cooking is likely out of the question, go out to dinner.  Many restaurants are open around the holidays and offer a number of traditional meals.  If you have friends or relatives who want to host you for a big dinner, take them up on their offer with a promise to return the favor once you’re settled in your new home.

Take A Vacation
After your movers have picked up your belongings, consider taking a holiday vacation, even if it’s for one or two days.  Visit a relative or go to a theme park – or go anywhere that will help to relieve the stress you’ve built up thinking about and working on your move.  Your moving company can either store your belongings for a couple of days or deliver them to a storage facility near your new home.
