We do not always have a choice as to when we are able to move. The holidays, for example, are often not the optimal time to relocate but because of the military, or job re-location, etc. this time of year is sometimes the only choice left to us. So, the trick to moving during the holiday season is to not let the stress of the holidays and of moving combine to make you frenzied. At Russell’s Moving and Storage we strive to make your relocation go off seamlessly regardless of the time of year. However, we would like to give you some of our suggestions on just how to make your holiday move less stressful from your end.
- Move right after Christmas: If you can, try to schedule your move for the day after Christmas. This way you will catch friends and neighbors who are still likely to be on their winter vacation that can help you.
- Keep at least one room decorated for as long as possible: This way you will be able to keep the holiday spirit alive as you move.
- Call Russell’s for the heavy furniture and packed boxes: Remember that others may have to move during or before the holidays as well. It never hurts to be prepared in this event. Our storage and delivery service in Los Angeles can assist you best when we have a clear idea of your schedule and when we receive as much advance notice as possible.
- Scale back on holiday decorations: If you anticipate moving immediately after Christmas then you may wish to keep the decorations to a minimum. By doing this, you will have fewer non-essentials to pack when moving time comes.
- Pack for the cold: Pack blankets and other cold weather accessories with you in the event your car breaks down. Also make sure to check the weather before you start off. Finally, make sure if you are using a storage facility that it is climate controlled. For storage in Agoura Hills, our facilities are always climate controlled.
To sum it all up, we cannot always choose when we wish to relocate but we can make the best of moving by carefully planning our move and by choosing professionals who can make the whole process easier. Russell’s Moving and Storage has the expertise and knowledge to aid you in making one of life’s most stressful events less frustrating.
