Should I Move to Colorado Springs Over the Holidays?

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

Well, you will be moving to Colorado Springs--when's the perfect time to pack up and go? Your first leaning might be to go over the holidays, because the youngsters are away from school, you've got a bit of vacation time, and why not? Your next inclination, the one it is best to go along with, says nope, wait until after the first of the year. Naturally, 2020 is different; you've all already been home working and learning for many months on end and albeit, you need a change of surroundings. The sooner the better. Still, patiently waiting a couple of weeks could be the better call in the long term.
 

One thing before we get into all the factors to stay put through the New Year--while Covid is definitely the bogeyman in the shadows, these factors tend to be evergreen--just this year, you should steer clear of travel as well as being close to new people as much as possible.

Movers

Of course, moving companies in Colorado Springs do function throughout the holidays, but their employees also take time off. During the best of times, you should book your movers a few weeks beforehand; from late November through early January they are working with a smaller staff, similar to everybody else. Therefore, delay until everybody is back at work to schedule your trek. Should you be dead focused on moving in late December, ensure that you get it on your professional mover’s calendar earlier than later.

Accommodations

People will travel over the holidays in 2020, regardless of what the CDC suggests. But families who might typically go on an airline are deciding to drive this year--airlines have severely curtailed flights, making flying just about any place difficult. Driving suggests more time on the highway and overnights on your way, so be expecting hotel rooms to be reserved. Hotels alongside interstates and busy highways happen to be busier than you may think during the holidays at any rate, meaning the nightly charges increase. Unless you've already locked in your booking, count on paying a premium for rooms right by ice machines as well as elevators.

Winter Weather

The way this year is going, there could well be hurricanes in the gulf and blizzards in the Midwest fighting for the Weather Channel's attention. Snow and ice are always a hazard throughout the winter time, and you have to have a Plan B if the storm comes on your path while you are in the heart of moving. Throughout the holidays you're functioning on elevated emotions and adrenaline even when you're not moving, so why would you pile on the worry of a move? The last thing you will want is for the stockings you had planned to hang by your new chimney with care to end up being held up with a freak ice storm, therefore stay put, hang the stockings, and contend with the boxes down the road.

Enjoy Your Holidays

Finally, since this is your very last Christmas in your old home, spend some time to appreciate it. Decorate your house as always, bake the goodies and also the turkey, and do all the things that happen to be your traditions. The holidays are rife with nostalgia, anyway, therefore do not hide all those feelings under the rug due to the fact you will be moving. I wouldn't suggest stewing in every single recollection (this is where the christmas tree dropped off the roof of the car), but certainly give yourself and your loved ones the room to stroll down memory lane as much as they want. Spend time with good friends, hang your stockings, and when everything is over, pack up like you always do.

This is the bonus--this is your time to throw out all your worn old decorations and dim bulb strands--you definitely shouldn't move that!
