As we discussed in our blog earlier this month, a holiday move to Tulsa is usually stressful, overwhelming, and appear a bit frightening initially. Even so, there might be a few pros to selecting a holiday move if you play your cards right. There are particular things you can do to make it less difficult on yourself and your family members, and which will perhaps make the move more enjoyable than one at a different season - let us discuss our 5 tips to making your move to Tulsa over the holidays as easy as can be.
Seems as if most people have done this year’s shopping online. Christmas and birthday presents for yourself and others appear on your doorstep, and it is great - until you open all of them up and have a stack of boxes 5 feet high to manage.
Usually, you would recycle those cardboard boxes and obtain your moving boxes from a big box store or your professional moving company in Tulsa, however if you are moving over the holidays then you can re-purpose the boxes as moving boxes to not only save some money, but to help lessen your carbon footprint!
Keep close track of the weather
Weather conditions can be extremely unpredictable in the holiday season, irrespective of where your home is. Be sure to monitor the weather channel as best you are able to, to plan properly for extreme weather including snow, wind, or lightning storms that make it hard for even professional moving companies in Tulsa to accomplish the task well.
Donate mildly used items to decrease the amount of belongings you must move
Normally, we urge people to pare down the amount of things they must move before it's time to go not just to cut costs, but to streamline the moving process. Yard sales and also estate sales are normal when the occupants are moving, yet choosing to donate your softly used pieces of furniture (or smaller things such as garments) that you no longer need or won't be taking with you is an excellent approach to embody the Holiday spirit and bless another person in need. Numerous donation centers encourage donations usually around the holidays; try to find one in your area!
Combine your holiday greeting card along with your life update
Quite a few households send out Christmas cards out to relatives to wish them a Merry Christmas and update them on what is taking place in their life. Certainly, a change of residence is going to be included in that update! Even so, many believe that a mention of the move will likely suffice, and decide to mail out another update of address notification to those people who need it. If you are moving any other time that system is successful, but you can kill two birds with one stone if you are moving around the holidays. Include your change of address announcement with your holiday card (or in the same envelope if you wish to keep them at least a bit separate) to reduce postage as well as time.
Engage a Professional Moving Company Now
Professional movers do take the option to grant their employees vacation time over the holidays, for them to spend time with their loved ones and get some well-deserved relaxation. Consequently, moving companies are often thinly staffed during the holidays and could have less availabilities for moving jobs. At the time you pick a date for your move, reserve your moving company in Tulsa ASAP to allow them to make sure to staff your move enough in advance.
