Moving During the Holiday Season
Now that the holidays are here, so is moving day. While most people are unpacking their holiday decorations, you’re packing up yours along with all your belongings to move into your new home. It’s not a situation most people dream to be in; however, there are some helpful tips to keep your holiday sprits up as you move to Sarasota.
If there’s one issue that can lower your holiday spirit while moving, it’s holiday traffic. The traffic is due to travelers coming into town to visit or holiday shoppers. Avoid moving on days around Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year’s, so that you can move into your new home on schedule. If you choose our Sarasota movers to help you move during the holidays, make sure to book in advance so that we can have you move to Sarasota on time.
Keep your holiday spirits lifted by packing your holiday decorations separately. Pack holiday items like décor, gift wrappings, presents, ornaments, as well as holiday apparel in clear bins. Our trusted movers provide packing services to ensure you can unpack your decorations first thing when you move into your new home. This way, you can jump right into the festivities as our Sarasota movers get you settled into your new home.
‘Tis the season of giving back, and a great way of doing so is donating your unwanted items. Donate items like clothes, appliances, electronics, toys, etc. to charities like The Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, and Goodwill. Since the holiday season marks the end of the tax year, keep your receipts help put money in your pockets. This can really come in handy, especially have a pricey move.
If you’re moving to Sarasota from a cold climate, you’ll need to factor in weather conditions during your move. Download a reliable weather app and stay up to date with the forecast as the weather can be quite changeable. Although we don’t usually get snow in Florida, if you’re coming from out of state, we suggest you sprinkle snow salt on the pavement and keep a snow shovel handy just in case it snows during moving day. Bundle up in warm clothing such as gloves, scarves, hats, and boots when necessary.
A couple of weeks before you move to Sarasota, have your home security provider install a security system in your new home. During the holidays, home invasions and burglaries tend to increase, so help keep your home safe from intruders. You wouldn’t want a break-in to ruin your holiday spirit.
