Planning a move during the joyous yet hectic holiday season can bring on an abominable amount of stress. Here’s how to avoid the naughty list and survive your holiday move.

Get Your Jingle Bells In A Row and Schedule Your Movers In Advance

The holidays are a busy time for everyone including movers. Schedule your move in advance with a reputable moving company to avoid stress and additional charges of a last minute move reservation.

Holiday Packing – Opening Moving Boxes Does Not Count As Presents

Be sure to pack holiday decorations (including gift wrapping supplies!) in separate boxes from your household items. Label boxes clearly so you can quickly and easily unpack and decorate for the holidays in your new home. Purge any old decor before the move.

Don’t Be A Grinch – Stay In The Holiday Spirit

Keep the holiday spirit alive during the move process by playing holiday music, and creating a festive atmosphere. Try to keep your existing holiday traditions in place – especially if you have children. Once settled in your new home, establish some new traditions in addition to what you have done in years past.

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Holiday Cards and Moving Announcements

Save yourself some postage and combine your holiday cards with your move announcement.

Ship Your Gifts – Santa Has No Extra Room On His Sleigh

If possible, shop online and have gifts sent directly to a family member, friend, or your hotel. Many online vendors will include gift wrapping for a small additional fee.
