Often, moving doesn't align with the most convenient schedule. And, when you're stuck moving during a busy time, such as the holidays, you may become overwhelmed with stress—especially if you were planning on hiring long-distance movers.

In this blog, we'll discuss a few tips for having a successful holiday move. However, before we go over these tips, we thought you might want to know more about us.

For nearly three decades, Air-Land-Sea Van Lines has been Atlanta's most trusted moving and storage company. Offering a wide range of solutions for our clients, we're proud to help reduce stress by providing seamless moving services.

Pack Early

You'll want to get ahead of packing to enjoy the holidays with your friends and family. While you'll still need a lot of your home items, other things can be reasonably packed early, such as:

  • Some Pillows and Blankets
  • Lawn Equipment
  • Summer Clothes
  • Chinaware

Never Wait Until the Last Minute

Moving companies likely won't be as busy during this time, however, their employees might be taking time off. So, don't delay; call early. It would be best if you were thinking ahead of time and not waiting last minute, hoping for a holiday miracle.

Ask for an Estimate

With all the expenses around the holidays, you'll want to know how much the move will cost to utilize your budget to its best potential. Any good moving and storage company should offer you a written estimate before any services begin.

Label all of Your Decorations

For those who love to decorate during the holidays, you'll want to clearly label all of your decorations in separate boxes. By doing so, if you arrive at your new home before a holiday, you'll be able to quickly find and put up your things—making your new space truly feel like home.

Spread Holiday Cheer by Donating

With the holidays in full swing, there's no better time to consider donating. Moving presents the best opportunities to clean your closet and eliminate things. Sift through some of your belongings, and try to present a few bags of items to those who are less fortunate.

Hold off on Large Item Purchasing

We suggest holding off on purchasing large items like TVs because they will be much more challenging. Instead, consider purchasing these items, then arranging for them to be delivered once you've settled into your new home.

Don't Agree to Host the Holiday Party this Year

With all the packing and preparation you need to do, the last thing you should be concerned about is putting on a fun party. Perhaps you're a friend that likes to entertain. That's great! But you'll have to skip the hosting this year.
