How to Move During the Holidays
When it comes to moving during the holidays, there are some things to consider when relocating into your new home. There are many factors that can interfere with your move that normally wouldn’t during the rest of the year. That’s why we’ve curated some tips all in one place that can help moving into your new home less stressful.
Before you move to San Antonio or anywhere else during the holidays, consider donating belongings you no longer want. Donating clothes, toys, etc. not only lightens your moving load, but it’s also a great way of giving back during the holidays. Charities like Goodwill, The Salvation Army, and Habitat for Humanity are more than willing to accept any and all donations during the holiday season. In addition, make sure to save your receipts from donating since the holiday season marks the end of the tax year. This is handy, especially after a big, expensive move.
During the holidays, not many people tend to move, and this leaves movers more time to spend with their family. If you’re planning on hiring our Texas moving company, make sure to book us in advance as soon as possible for quick and reliable service.
Moreover, you must consider the traffic during the holidays. If you plan on moving on your own, holiday traffic can be a huge interference. The roads and freeways will be packed with holiday shoppers and travelers. Map out your move in advance to make sure you don’t get stuck in a traffic a jam while moving into your new home.
When you move to San Antonio, you don’t have to worry much about the weather here since it never snows here. However, if you’re moving from an area that’s susceptible to snow, take into consideration the icy roads or white-out blizzards. Your safety is more important than your move, so take precautions such as always checking the weather and have a snow shovel and salt on hand.
Play Holiday Music
Packing for your move during the holidays is not something of many of us look forward to. Just the thought of packing and organizing during such a festive season can turn one into a Grinch. To lift up your spirits, play some holiday music as you pack.
Being Safe as You Move
As the holidays draw nearer, break-ins and robberies tend to increase during the season. Before you move into your new home, have a security system already installed. Make an appointment with your home security provider a few weeks for an installation before you move. This is also one less thing for you to worry about during moving day.
