5 Tips for Moving to Little Rock over the Holidays

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

As we discussed in our blog earlier this month, a holiday move to Little Rock can be hectic, overwhelming, and seem somewhat frightening initially. Nevertheless, there may be a couple of pros to picking a holiday move for those who play your cards right. There are certain actions you can take to make it less difficult on yourself and your family, and that will perhaps make the move more enjoyable than one at a different time of year - let's consider our 5 ideas to making your move to Little Rock over the holidays as straightforward as is possible.

Recycle cartons

Seems as if everyone has performed this year’s shopping online. Holiday and birthday gifts for yourself and other folks appear on your doorstep, and it's excellent - until you open all of them up and have a heap of cardboard boxes 6 feet high to handle.

Typically, you'd probably recycle those cardboard boxes and obtain your moving boxes from a home improvement store or maybe your professional moving company in Little Rock, however if you are moving over the holiday season then you can re-purpose the boxes as moving boxes to not only save cash, but to help lessen your carbon footprint!

Keep an eye on the weather

Weather conditions can be extremely fickle in the holiday season, irrespective of where you call home. Make sure to keep an eye on the weather channel as best you can, to plan appropriately for serious weather like snow, wind, or lightning storms which make it difficult for even professional moving companies in Little Rock to do their job well.

Donate mildly used items to decrease the number of things you must move

Normally, we recommend people to pare down the amount of items they must move before it is time to go not just to save cash, but to simplify the moving process. Yard sales as well as estate sales are common if the occupants are moving, however choosing to donate your gently used pieces of furniture (or smaller items like apparel) that you no longer need or will not be taking with you is an excellent option to incorporate the Holiday spirit as well as bless someone in need. Numerous donation facilities encourage donations particularly around the holiday season; look for one in your area!

Combine your holiday greeting card along with your life update

Many households send Christmas cards out to loved ones to wish them a Merry Christmas and update them on what is taking place in their life. Certainly, a change of residence shall be contained in that update! Nevertheless, many believe that a reference to the move may be sufficient, and decide to send out a separate change of address notice to those people who have to have it. If you are moving any other time of year that approach is effective, however you can kill two birds with one stone should you be moving over the holidays. Include your change of address announcement inside your holiday card (or in the same envelope if you wish to keep them at least a bit separate) to save on postage as well as time.

Hire a Professional Moving Company Now

Professional movers do take the opportunity to allow their workers vacation time over the holidays, for them to spend time with their own families and get some well-deserved downtime. Consequently, moving companies are typically thinly staffed during the holidays and may have less availabilities for moving jobs. Once you establish a date for your move, reserve your moving company in Little Rock ASAP so they can make sure to staff your move sufficiently in advance.
