4 Best Movers Tips For This Holiday Season

One of the most stressful times of year for moving is during the holiday season. However, circumstances can make a holiday relocation necessary and some people prefer to move houses during the winter, when they can take time away from work and school.

If you are planning a residential move during the holiday season, there are some extra measures you can take to reduce your stress and make the move more fun and drama-free.

Here are some tips from our Calgary moving company for relocating during the winter:


1. Hire a Professional Moving Service

It’s the holiday season, so you already have a lot on your mind without having to worry about packing and other aspects of your move. Hiring a reliable moving company will significantly reduce your stress levels and can ensure that your:

  • Move happens in a quick and efficient manner
  • Family is protected from any falls or injuries
  • Relocation is very cost-effective
  • Possessions are safely transported and protected from damage

Our Calgary moving company can help you tackle all the major parts of your holiday relocation so that you can focus on enjoying the time with your friends and family with total peace of mind.


2. Start Packing Early

If you are moving right before Christmas, you will need to put extra thought into packing, especially if you prefer only to unpack necessary household items until after the busy holidays pass.

For an easy move-in process, remember to add labels to your boxes which indicate:

  • The contents of the box
  • The room that it belongs to
  • Whether or not it’s fragile

The best thing about moving right before the holiday season? You don’t have to worry about lugging a heavy Christmas tree or boxes of ornaments down from the attic. You can simply have your moving service place it right where you want in your new home!


3. Cheer Up the Kids

Holiday relocation with your children can be a tricky situation. It’s important to keep in mind that a move can be a stressful experience for your kids and they will need time to adjust to their new environment.

However, there are several things you can do to make the move more pleasant:

  • Get your children involved in the process (eg. let them pack up their own room)
  • Discuss the new opportunities waiting for the family at your new home
  • Put together a box of holiday coloring books, puzzles and other activities to keep them occupied during the relocation
  • Let them keep familiar items (eg. bed and toys) when you move into your new place


4. Gear Up

Many places across Canada experience cold, snowy weather during the holidays. Our moving company has over 30 years of experience moving families during the winter months and we know how to keep you and your belongings safe during a relocation.

However, if you do opt to do some of the work yourself, you need to gear up properly! Make sure to use the right materials such as sturdy snow boots, gloves, and loading equipment that will prepare you for slippery surfaces and wet conditions.
