There are particular things you can do to make things easier on yourself and your household, and that will possibly make the move more enjoyable than one at a different time of year - take a look at our 5 tips to making your move to Colorado Springs over the holidays as easy as is possible.

Reuse cartons

It seems like everyone has performed this year’s shopping online. Holiday and birthday presents for yourself and other folks appear on your doorstep, and it's great - until you open them all up and have a heap of cartons 5 feet high to manage.

Usually, you would recycle those cardboard boxes and buy your moving cartons from the hardware store or perhaps your professional moving company in Colorado Springs, but 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!

Monitor the weather conditions

Weather can be quite fickle in the holiday season, regardless of where you call home. Be sure to watch the weather channel as best you are able to, to plan properly for significant weather including snow, blowing wind, or lightning storms which make it challenging for even professional moving companies in Colorado Springs to perform the job well.

Give away mildly used items to decrease the quantity of belongings you must move

Typically, we urge people to pare down the number 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. Yard sales as well as estate sales are common in the event the residents are moving, however opting to donate your gently used pieces of furniture (or smaller items like clothes) that you no longer need or won't be taking with you is a great approach to embody the Holiday spirit and also bless someone in need. Many donation centers encourage donations usually around the holiday season; look for one nearby!

Include your holiday greeting card along with your life update

A lot of families send out holiday cards to friends and family to wish them a Merry Christmas and update them on what is taking place in their lives. Without doubt, a change of residence is going to be contained in that update! Even so, many feel that a reference to the move may be adequate, and choose to send out another change of address notice to those who need to have it. For anyone who is moving any other time that system works, nevertheless you can kill two birds with one stone should you be moving around the holidays. Add your change of address announcement with your holiday card (or inside the same envelope if you want to maintain them at least a bit separate) to save on postage and also time.

Hire a Professional Moving Company Now

Professional movers do take the option to allow their workers vacation time around the holidays, so they can spend time with their own families and get some well-deserved relaxation. Therefore, moving companies are typically thinly staffed during the holidays and might have less availabilities for moving jobs. At the time you pick a date for your move, book your moving company in Colorado Springs ASAP to allow them to be sure to staff your move enough ahead of time.
