Moving During Holiday

By Skyler Benson | May 8, 2019

There are a vast number of people who do not have available time to move except on holidays. Their work schedules, school schedules, and other priorities in life dictate that the only free time they have for moving is on holiday.

Moving on a holiday does not mean that your move is going to be harder than a move at any other time of the year would be. All you need to do is a little planning and preparation, and you can successfully move on a holiday with very little stress or anxiety.

How to make holiday moving easier

 

Make a checklist

 

The first thing you should do before you move on a holiday, or at any other time of the year is creating a checklist of things that have to be done before the move. Some of these things will be:

  • Notify banks and financial institutions of your address change

  • Notify lenders and creditors of your address change

  • Schedule to turn off utilities and turn on utilities at the new home

  • Tell your landlord about the upcoming move

  • Call a moving specialist and schedule the move

  • Arrange to board pets for a few days

  • Get medical records and dental records

  • Notify your employer

  • Get children’ school records

  • Arrange to have ready cash for the moving day

Decide What Must be Moved

You are more than likely not going to want to move everything that you currently own. You want to go through your belongings and see what things you want to keep and what items you want to dispose of.

Once you know what things you are taking you can plan on the packing and will not approximately how many boxes or cartons you will need for each room in your home.

You want to make sure that all of your truly valuable things, like your personal papers, and your expensive items like personal jewellery, are packed in boxes that will be moved in your vehicle.

 

Consider what things the Movers will Move

 

Hiring professional furniture movers will allow you to move with less stress. When you hire professionals:

  • come with the right size truck to fit your belongings into so you do not have to borrow a truck or make several trips. Everything can move at one time so fewer things get lost or misplaced during the process

  • they know how to assemble and disassemble furniture such as beds

  • they know how to protect your furniture so it is not damaged by the move

  • they do the heavy lifting so you do not have to bribe your friends into moving things for you

Moving on a holiday is less stressful than you think. Many of the professional removalist companies are available to help you move on holidays. Just make sure that you have taken care of utilities like turning on the lights in your new home before moving because utility companies, banks, and businesses of this nature will likely be closed on a holiday.
