Planning to move during the winter holidays? Given the season, it probably makes sense that holiday moving is almost always more prone to problems than at other times of year, so some moving tips specific to this time of year are not out of line. Unless you like the idea of holiday moving being complicated, follow these holiday moving tips to help make your move successful and maintain your holiday cheer.
1. Send holiday cards with your new address. If you are sending holiday cards, use your new address as the return address and mention your move in the card.
2. Verify that your utilities will be on when you arrive at your new home. A white Christmas is magical . . . unless you have no heat.
3. Do not pack winter supplies. Items such as ice scrapers, snow shovels, winter coats, etc. should be packed in a separate bag that will be available if needed.
4. Keep your driveway and sidewalks safe & clear. You will need to keep safe and clear paths to and from your home while moving. Consider salting the areas ahead of time. Remember, this applies to both homes.
Mover Dudes was started in 2006 by Jon Eye, the company's current president. Eye had been working for a self-storage company helping people move in and out of homes in Winchester, Virginia. After hearing about all of the difficulties and stresses people were consistently experiencing when moving, Eye decided that he wanted to help them. He envisioned a moving company that kept its word to the customer, was honest about costs, and relieved the common stresses of moving. Mover Dudes is now the reality of his vision.
The company started small in Winchester, Virginia, but with a small ad in the telephone book the company grew. Eye and his hard-working crew of movers began moving local residents out of the area, and before they knew it, the name “Mover Dudes” was catching on. Long-distance moves soon expanded into commercial moves after one year in business.
