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

As we mentioned in our blog earlier this month, a holiday move to El Paso can be anxious, overwhelming, and seem somewhat scary at first glance. However, there can be a handful of positives to selecting a holiday move if you play your cards right. There are particular actions you can take to make it less difficult on yourself and your household, and that may perhaps make the move more pleasant than one at a different season - let's consider our 5 suggestions to making your move to El Paso over the holidays as painless as possible.

Reuse boxes

It seems like everyone has done this year’s shopping online. Christmas and birthday gifts for yourself and others appear on your doorstep, and it's fantastic - until you open them all up and have a heap of boxes 7 feet high to handle.

Generally, you'd recycle those cardboard boxes and buy your moving boxes from the hardware store or your professional moving company in El Paso, but if you are moving over the holiday season then you can re-purpose the cardboard boxes as moving boxes not only to save cash, but to help lessen your carbon footprint!

Keep an eye on the weather conditions

Weather can be very flighty in the holiday season, wherever you call home. Make sure you watch the weather channel as best you are able to, to plan accordingly for extreme weather like snow, blowing wind, or lightning storms which make it difficult for even professional moving companies in El Paso to do the task well.

Donate mildly used items to reduce the number of things you must move

Generally, we urge 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 simplify the moving process. Garage sales and also estate sales are common if the occupants are moving, yet deciding to donate your lightly used home furnishings (or smaller items like garments) that you no longer need or won't be taking with you is a fantastic way to embody the Holiday spirit as well as bless somebody in need. Numerous donation facilities encourage donations especially around the holidays; try to find one nearby!

Include your holiday greeting card together with your life update

Quite a few people mail holiday cards to relatives to wish them a Merry Christmas and update them on what is taking place in everyday life. Undoubtedly, a change of residence is going to be contained in that update! However, many think that a reference to the move will be adequate, and decide to send out a separate update of address notice to those people who have to have it. Should you be moving any other time of year that approach is effective, nevertheless you can kill two birds with one stone if you are moving around the holidays. Include your change of address announcement within your holiday card (or inside the same envelope should you wish to have them at least a bit separate) to reduce postage as well as time.

Hire a Professional Moving Company Now

Professional movers do take the option to grant their employees vacation time through the holidays, so they can spend time with their own families and get some well-deserved rest. Therefore, 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, book your moving company in El Paso ASAP to allow them to be sure to staff your move adequately ahead of time.
