It’s not uncommon for people to move during the holiday season. For some, it’s the only time off work that you can get this done. If you find yourself in the midst of packing up and relocating home or office during this time of year, here are some tips that can make your transition as easy as possible.

Plan ahead:

Now is the time to take stock of how much time you’ll need to complete the move in addition to how much time you’ll need to make final preparations before your holiday travels.

Be realistic about your budget:

A lot of people tend to spend more than they would normally spend during the festive period, at they are purchasing gifts, decorations and food. Make sure that you have budgeted adequately!

Inform your friends and family about your move:

With December being the holiday season, and all of the gift exchanges that go along with it, it’s a good time to think about how your new address will be handled. This will make it easier for those visting or sendinggifts.

Smart packing:

Packing smartly is key to making the move less stressful. It can be hard to pack and unpack your stuff in reverse order, so plan ahead and arrange your items in the right order. Move last of all the boxes that you want to be unpacked first, such as presents or Christmas decorations. They will be the first things unpacked and provide an instant pick-me-up at the new place.

Pre-book the removalists:

If you’re moving long distance during the holiday season, you have a couple of options for moving companies. You can try to time it so that your move happens before or after the major holidays, which would make booking a removalist easier. Or you could book them in advance, so that you don’t have to worry about it when the time comes.
