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

As we mentioned in our blog post earlier this month, a holiday move to Denver is usually hectic, difficult, and appear a little bit scary initially. However, there can be a handful of pros to selecting a holiday move for those who play your cards right. There are some steps you can take to make things easier on yourself and your household, and that will even make the move more enjoyable than one at a different time of year - let's consider our 5 tips to making your move to Denver over the holidays as straightforward as it can be.

Reuse cartons

Seems as if everyone has performed this year’s shopping online. Christmas and birthday presents for yourself and other folks show up on your doorstep, and it's excellent - until you open them up and have a heap of cardboard boxes 5 feet high to manage.

Typically, you'd recycle those cartons and obtain your moving cartons from your local hardware store or maybe your professional moving company in Denver, however if you are moving over the holiday season you'll be able to re-purpose the cardboard boxes as moving boxes to not only save some money, but to reduce your carbon footprint!

Keep close track of the weather conditions

Conditions can be quite unpredictable within the holiday season, regardless of where you call home. You'll want to keep an eye on the weather channel as best you can, to plan accordingly for extreme weather including snow, blowing wind, or lightning storms that make it hard for even professional moving companies in Denver to accomplish the job well.

Donate gently used items to decrease the number of items you must move

Generally, we urge people to pare down the quantity of items they must move prior to when it's time to go not only to reduce costs, but to improve the moving process. Garage sales and also estate sales are routine in the event the residents are moving, but opting to donate your lightly used furniture (or smaller things such as apparel) that you no longer need or won't be taking with you is a superb option to incorporate the Holiday spirit and bless somebody in need. Many donation facilities encourage donations usually around the holiday season; look for one locally!

Integrate your holiday greeting card together with your life update

Many people send holiday cards to friends and family to wish them a Merry Christmas and update them on what is taking place in their lives. Undoubtedly, a change of residence is going to be contained in that update! Even so, many feel that a reference to the move will probably be sufficient, and choose to send out another change of address notification to those people who have to have it. For anyone who is moving any other time of year that system is successful, nevertheless you can kill two birds with one stone should you be moving around the holidays. Add your change of address announcement within your holiday card (or in the same envelope if you want to keep them at least a bit separate) to reduce 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 own families and get some well-deserved downtime. As a result, moving companies are typically thinly staffed over 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 so that they can be sure to staff your move sufficiently ahead of time.
