Moving doesn’t always happen at the most convenient times. This is especially true if you're hiring long-distance movers in Texas.
In this blog, we'll discuss a few tips for having a successful holiday move. However, before we go over these tips, you might want to know more about us.
Westheimer Transfer & Storage has been Texas’s most trusted moving and storage company for over a century. Offering a wide range of solutions for our clients, we're proud to help reduce stress by providing seamless moving services.
Start Packing Early
While you'll still need many home items, other things can be reasonably packed early. You'll want to get ahead of packing to enjoy the holidays with your friends and family. Consider packing up the following early on:
Some Pillows and Blankets
Moving presents the best opportunities to clean your closet and eliminate things. With the holidays in full swing, there's no better time to consider donating. Sift through some of your belongings, and try to give a few bags of items to those who are less fortunate.
Always Get a Written Estimate
Any good moving and storage company should offer you a written estimate before any services begin. With this in mind, you should always request a written estimate to account for moving costs in your budget—because, often, the holidays come with extra expenses.
Don’t Make Large Purchases
We know how tempting it is to make a large purchase, like buying a new TV, but you'll want to hold off. This will only make the moving process more difficult. Make sure your move is simple.
Schedule Your Move in Advance
Avoid the last-minute scramble to find a new moving company. With employees taking time off around the holidays, you'll want to make sure that you schedule your moving services early.
Think ahead; clearly label and pack all your holiday decorations separately, so you can easily access them once you've moved. You'll want to decorate as soon as you land in your new home, right?
Don’t Host the Holiday Party
You'll be so busy with packing and preparation that the last thing you should be thinking about is hosting your friends and family for a holiday party. Even if you're the type that likes to entertain—just put it off for next year.
