As we discussed in our blog earlier this month, a holiday move to Wichita Falls is usually stressful, challenging, and appear a little bit frightening initially. Even so, there might be a handful of pros to picking a holiday move for those who play your cards right. There are some actions you can take to make things easier on yourself and your family, and that may perhaps make the move more enjoyable than one at a different season - here are our 5 ideas to making your move to Wichita Falls over the holidays as simple as it can be.

Reuse cardboard boxes

Seems like many people have performed this year’s shopping online. Christmas and birthday presents for yourself and others appear on your doorstep, and it is fantastic - until you open all of them up and have a heap of boxes 5 feet high to deal with.

Generally, you would recycle those boxes and buy your moving cartons from the hardware store or your professional moving company in Wichita Falls, however if you are moving over the holidays you'll be able to re-purpose the cardboard boxes as moving boxes not only to save some money, but to help reduce your carbon footprint!

Monitor the weather conditions

Weather conditions can be extremely fickle over the holiday season, regardless of where you call home. You'll want to monitor the weather channel as best you can, to organize accordingly for significant weather such as snow, wind, or lightning storms that make it challenging for even professional moving companies in Wichita Falls to perform their job well.

Donate lightly used items to decrease the amount of items you must move

Typically, we recommend people to pare down the amount of belongings they must move ahead of when it's time to go not only to reduce costs, but to streamline the moving process. Yard sales and estate sales are normal when the residents are moving, however choosing to donate your lightly used furniture (or smaller things such as clothing) that you no longer need or are not taking with you is a superb way to embody the Holiday spirit as well as bless a person in need. Numerous donation centers encourage donations particularly around the holidays; try to find one close to you!

Include your holiday greeting card with your life update

A lot of people send out holiday cards to loved ones to wish them a Merry Christmas and update them on what is happening in their life. Undoubtedly, a change of residence shall be contained in that update! Nevertheless, many feel that a reference to the move may be adequate, and decide to send out a separate update of address notification to those people who need to have it. Should you be moving any other time of year that strategy is effective, nevertheless you can kill two birds with one stone if you are moving over the holidays. Include your change of address announcement within your holiday card (or in the same envelope should you wish to maintain them at least somewhat separate) to save on postage as well as time.

Employ a Professional Moving Company Now

Professional movers do take the chance to allow their staff vacation time through the holidays, for them to spend time with their families and get some well-deserved downtime. As a result, moving companies are often 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 Wichita Falls ASAP to allow them to make certain to staff your move enough ahead of time.
