Moving over the holidaysBy Julie DeLong, Oil Capitol Relocation 

As we mentioned in our blog earlier this month, a holiday move to Little Rock is usually stressful, overwhelming, and seem a little bit terrifying at first glance. Nevertheless, there may be a handful of pros to choosing a holiday move for those who play your cards right. There are particular actions you can take to make things easier on yourself and your family members, and which will possibly make the move more pleasant than one at a different season - take a look at our 5 suggestions to making your move to Little Rock over the holidays as straightforward as is possible.

Recycle boxes

Seems like most people have performed this year’s shopping online. Holiday and birthday presents for yourself and others appear on your doorstep, and it's great - until you open them all up and have a pile of cartons 5 feet high to handle.

Normally, you'd recycle those boxes and obtain your moving boxes from the big box store or perhaps your professional moving company in Little Rock, but if you are moving over the holiday season then you can certainly re-purpose those cardboard boxes as moving boxes not only to save cash, but to reduce your carbon footprint!

Keep an eye on the weather conditions

Weather can be quite fickle in the holiday season, wherever you live. Make sure you keep an eye on the weather channel as best you can, to plan properly for significant weather such as snow, blowing wind, or lightning storms which make it difficult for even professional moving companies in Little Rock to do the task well.

Donate lightly used items to lower the number of belongings you must move

Normally, we recommend people to pare down the amount of belongings they must move in advance of when it is time to go not just to save money, but to simplify the moving process. Garage sales and also estate sales are common if the residents are moving, but opting to donate your lightly used furniture (or smaller items like clothing) that you no longer need or will not be taking with you is a fantastic approach to incorporate the Holiday spirit and bless another person in need. Quite a few donation facilities encourage donations usually around the holiday season; search for one nearby!

Include your holiday greeting card with your life update

Quite a few families send out holiday cards out to relatives to wish them a Merry Christmas and update them on what is going on in their lives. Without doubt, a change of residence will be included in that update! However, many believe that a mention of the move will be adequate, and choose to send out an independent change of address notice to the people who need it. If you are moving any other time that system is effective, however 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 maintain them at least somewhat separate) to save on postage and also time.

Engage a Professional Moving Company Now

Professional movers do take the opportunity to give their workers vacation time through the holidays, for them to spend time with their loved ones and get some well-deserved rest. Consequently, moving companies can be thinly staffed during the holidays and might have less availabilities for moving jobs. Once you establish a date for your move, book your moving company in Little Rock ASAP so they can make sure to staff your move enough beforehand.
