Moving over the holidaysBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

As we talked about in our blog earlier this month, a holiday move to Killeen is usually anxious, challenging, and appear a bit terrifying initially. Nevertheless, there can be a couple of positives to picking a holiday move when you play your cards right. There are particular actions you can take to make it less difficult on yourself and your family members, and that may possibly make the move more enjoyable than one at a different time of year - let's consider our 5 suggestions to making your move to Killeen over the holidays as simple as possible.

Recycle cartons

Seems like everyone has performed this year’s shopping online. Christmas and birthday gifts for yourself and other people show up on your doorstep, and it is wonderful - until you open them all up and have a pile of boxes 6 feet high to contend with.

Usually, you would recycle those boxes and obtain your moving cardboard boxes from your local big box store or your professional moving company in Killeen, but if you are moving over the holidays then you can certainly re-purpose the cardboard boxes as moving boxes to not only save cash, but to reduce your carbon footprint!

Keep close track of the weather

Weather conditions can be very unpredictable over the holiday season, irrespective of where you call home. Make sure to watch the weather channel as best you are able to, to plan appropriately for significant weather like snow, blowing wind, or lightning storms which make it difficult for even professional moving companies in Killeen to do their job well.

Give away mildly used items to decrease the number of things you must move

Typically, we urge people to pare down the amount of things they must move before it's time to go not only to cut costs, but to streamline the moving process. Yard sales as well as estate sales are routine when the occupants are moving, but choosing to donate your gently used pieces of furniture (or smaller things such as garments) that you no longer need or are not taking with you is an excellent option to embrace the Holiday spirit and bless someone in need. A lot of donation centers encourage donations usually around the holiday season; look for one locally!

Combine your holiday greeting card together with your life update

Many families send Christmas cards to friends and family to wish them a Merry Christmas and update them on what is taking place in their lives. Without doubt, a change of residence shall be included in that update! Nevertheless, many believe that a reference to the move will probably suffice, and decide to send out an independent update of address alert to those who will need it. For anyone who is moving any other time of the year that system is successful, nevertheless you can kill two birds with one stone should you be moving over the holidays. Add your change of address announcement inside your holiday card (or in the same envelope if you want to keep them at least a bit separate) to lower postage and also time.

Engage a Professional Moving Company Now

Professional movers do take the opportunity to allow their employees vacation time over the holidays, so they can spend time with their families and get some well-deserved downtime. Consequently, moving companies can be thinly staffed during the holidays and could have less availabilities for moving jobs. At the time you pick a date for your move, reserve your moving company in Killeen ASAP so they can be sure to staff your move enough beforehand.
