5 Tips for Moving to Denver over the Holidays
By Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group
Recycle cardboard boxes
Seems as if many people have done this year’s shopping online. Christmas and birthday gifts for yourself and other folks appear on your doorstep, and it is great - until you open them all up and have a heap of cardboard boxes 7 feet high to manage.
Typically, you'd recycle those boxes and buy your moving cardboard boxes from the hardware store or your professional moving company in Denver, however if you are moving over the holidays then you can re-purpose the boxes as moving boxes to not only save cash, but to help lessen your carbon footprint!
Keep close track of the weather
Weather conditions can be extremely flighty over the holiday season, no matter where your home is. Make sure to watch the weather channel as best you are able to, to organize properly for significant weather like snow, blowing wind, or lightning storms that make it difficult for even professional moving companies in Denver to do their job well.
Give away gently used items to lower the quantity of things you must move
Normally, we encourage people to pare down the quantity of items they must move in advance of when it is time to go not just to save cash, but to streamline the moving process. Yard sales and estate sales are common when the occupants are moving, however choosing to donate your lightly used furniture (or smaller things like apparel) that you no longer need or won't be taking with you is a superb way to embrace the Holiday spirit and also bless somebody in need. Quite a few donation facilities encourage donations especially around the holidays; try to find one in your area!
Merge your holiday greeting card with your life update
Many families send holiday cards out to loved ones to wish them a Merry Christmas and update them on what is taking place in everyday life. Without doubt, a change of residence is going to be included in that update! However, many feel that a reference to the move may suffice, and choose to send out another update of address alert to those people who have to have it. Should you be moving any other time that system works, however you can kill two birds with one stone if you're moving over the holidays. Include your change of address announcement within your holiday card (or inside the same envelope if you want to maintain them at least a bit separate) to save on postage as well as time.
Hire a Professional Moving Company Now
Professional movers do take the opportunity to allow their employees vacation time through the holidays, for them to spend time with their own families and get some well-deserved relaxation. Consequently, moving companies are typically thinly staffed during the holidays and might have less availabilities for moving jobs. As soon as you set a date for your move, schedule your moving company in Denver ASAP to allow them to be sure to staff your move adequately in advance.
