5 Tips for Moving to San Antonio over the Holidays

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

As we talked about in our blog earlier this month, a holiday move to San Antonio may be anxious, challenging, and appear a bit terrifying initially. Even so, there may be a few pros to selecting a holiday move when you play your cards right. There are certain things you can do to make it less difficult on yourself and your family, and that will perhaps make the move more pleasant than one at a different time of year - let us discuss our 5 tips to making your move to San Antonio over the holidays as easy as is possible.

Recycle boxes

It seems like most people have performed this year’s shopping online. Holiday and birthday presents for yourself and other people show up on your doorstep, and it's fantastic - until you open them all up and have a heap of cardboard boxes 6 feet high to manage.

Generally, you would recycle those boxes and obtain your moving boxes from a big box store or maybe your professional moving company in San Antonio, however if you are moving over the holidays then you can certainly re-purpose the cartons as moving boxes not only to stretch your budget, but to help lessen your carbon footprint!

Keep an eye on the weather conditions

Weather conditions can be very fickle in the holiday season, wherever your home is. Make sure to keep close track of the weather channel as best you can, to plan properly for extreme weather like snow, blowing wind, or lightning storms which make it challenging for even professional moving companies in San Antonio to perform the task well.

Give away lightly used items to decrease the amount of things you must move

Typically, we encourage people to pare down the amount of items they must move before it's time to go not only to reduce costs, but to improve the moving process. Yard sales and also estate sales are routine in the event the occupants are moving, however deciding to donate your gently used pieces of furniture (or smaller things like garments) that you no longer need or will not be taking with you is a fantastic approach to embody the Holiday spirit as well as bless a person in need. Quite a few donation facilities encourage donations particularly around the holidays; try to find one in your area!

Include your holiday greeting card with your life update

A lot of households mail holiday cards out to loved ones to wish them a Merry Christmas and update them on what is happening in their lives. Undoubtedly, a change of residence is going to be included in that update! Nevertheless, many feel that a mention of the move will be sufficient, and choose to mail out a separate update of address alert to the people who will need it. For anyone who is moving any other time of year that strategy works, but you can kill two birds with one stone should you be moving through the holidays. Include your change of address announcement inside your holiday card (or within the same envelope if you wish to keep them at least a bit separate) to save on postage and time.

Engage a Professional Moving Company Now

Professional movers do take the option to grant their workers vacation time through the holidays, to allow them to spend time with their families and get some well-deserved relaxation. As a result, moving companies are typically thinly staffed during the holidays and might have less availabilities for moving jobs. Once you establish a date for your move, schedule your moving company in San Antonio ASAP so that they can make sure to staff your move sufficiently beforehand.
