Lots of homeowners start putting their Christmas decorations up at the beginning of December, but if you’re moving home this festive season, Christmas decorations are probably the last thing on your mind. Moving home can be stressful at any time of the year and if you have the added pressure of Christmas being just around the corner, you will understandably be stressed about ensuring everything goes smoothly on moving day.
If you’re moving home in December or early January, our team at Moving Home Made Easy is here to help. Below we have put together a list of useful and practical tips that can help to make your house move easy and stress-free.
Create a moving checklist
Organisation is key when you’re moving during the festive period and one of the best things you can do is create a moving checklist. This checklist will help to ensure you’re not forgetting anything important at this very busy time of the year and you can have peace of mind that you’ve done everything you need to for your move. To help you out, our team has put together a comprehensive moving checklist, so you don’t need to search the internet for one.
Enlist the help of some experts
Instead of relying on family and friends to help you with your move, it’s highly recommended that you book professional removal services. A team of expert movers can make moving day much less stressful and they will work with you to ensure everything is carefully transported from A to B. Lots of moving companies offer packing and unpacking services, and these are very popular around Christmas time. These extra removal services will prevent you from having to live out of cardboard boxes for weeks and help you to settle into your new home.
Buy, wrap and pack presents in advance
Even if you’re moving a few weeks before Christmas day, we would still advise that you have all of your Christmas presents wrapped prior to your move. Being prepared with Christmas presents will give you one less thing to worry about and you won’t have the hassle of trying to hide things during your move, especially if you have children. Ideally, you should put all of your wrapped Christmas presents into moving boxes and clearly label them, they will then be handled with care and not get lost amongst all of your other belongings.
An added tip is to send your Christmas cards out early too. Post them before you move into your new home and include a note with your new address inside each card. This is a quick and easy way to tell all of your family and friends what your new address is.
Pre-plan your broadband installation
WiFi is considered to be essential nowadays and it’s something you’re likely to need when you move into a new home, particularly if you video call family and friends over the festive season. December is a busy month for all businesses and to prevent disappointment, you should book your broadband installation in advance. Once you know your moving date, do some research into broadband deals and speak to the company you’d like to install your internet connection.
Arrange a grocery delivery
When you’re entertaining family and friends this Christmas time or planning a housewarming party soon after your move, it can be beneficial to organise for shopping to be delivered to your new home. Supermarket opening times can differ a lot over the festive period with various bank holidays and if you want your cupboards to be stocked up ready to welcome visitors, a grocery delivery will prevent the stress of trying to get to a shop and buy everything you need.
