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.
