It may not be peak moving season by any means, but it is busy nonetheless. You need to secure your moving company as soon as possible before you are left with a less than ideal situation. Another thing about timing is your departure and arrival dates. You will want to take into consideration traffic and travel. Avoid the busiest days which are Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve/Day.
Fit Your Move Into Your Budget
Budgets are usually tight during the holiday season, and it may feel like this year you are going to go broke between moving and purchasing the perfect gifts. Know that you can usually save yourself some money when you plan your move for the middle of the week. You can also save on boxes when you ask local stores if you can have their boxes they frequently throw away.
When you are in the middle of a move, it always feels good to get rid of some of your things. You never really realize how much stuff you own until you decide to move. It is compounded when you are moving long distance. Making donations at your local Good Will is the perfect thing to do to get you into the giving spirit.
Watch the Weather
The weather is always a concern during the holidays. This is especially true when you are going to be doing a long distance move. You will likely be driving through more than one climate which means you need to watch and plan for the weather you are facing. It is helpful at this time of year to be prepared to shift your departure and arrival dates one or two days on either side to make room for the weather if needed.
