Planning on moving over the holidays? It can be an extremely stressful and hectic time to move in the midst of shopping for gifts or preparing the holiday meals. With all the time spent ensuring everything is perfect during the holidays, the last thing you want to think of is packing up your belongings and hauling them to a new location and then going through the process of unpacking them- all the while trying to keep children entertained over the holiday break. Hiring professional movers to pack, and move your household is worth the money. A professional moving company can work around your schedule and will help plan the best strategy for your move.
A professional mover can also make budgeting for a move much less complicated. Often times doing a DIY move you will often overlook adding budgetary items in such as moving supplies and gasoline, while a reliable mover can assist with an estimate outlining the costs of a move and prevent unanticipated costs during a move. More importantly, professional movers can help you save on an asset even more valuable than what is in your bank account- time!
Time and money are the two most important assets you have, and a move can easily limit these resources during a time when you want extra money in your pocket. Even if hiring professional movers does end up costing a little bit more money than taking on the moving endeavor by yourself, the amount of time you save by doing it more than makes up for it. Time and money aside, some would say the amount of stress hiring movers to assist you doing your holiday move saves you is priceless!
Here are some additional tips to help you with your holiday moves. Make sure you contact a moving company ASAP, you want to have reliable arrangements come moving day. Let friends and family know about your new address by turning your typical Christmas card into a moving announcement. (Don’t forget to fill out a change of address form at your local post office! You don’t want to miss out on the junk mail.) Waiting until the last minute to start packing for your move can often make your move more challenging and cost more money. Try to begin the process at least a few weeks prior to your moving date to ensure packing gets done successfully.
