How to Tackle Residential Moving During the Holidays, Rochester, New York

Residential moving is never an easy feat—even it’s just down the street. However, moving during the most hectic time of the year, the holiday season, takes the process to a whole other level. If you’re already feeling overwhelmed about sorting, packing, and transporting your entire life while you try to celebrate the year’s joys, take advantage of the following list of tips.

3 Tips for Residential Moving During the Holidays

1. Get an Early Start

As soon as you’ve closed on the new home or apartment, start planning for the workload ahead. Estimate how long you think each room will take you to go through, and start marking your calendars with productivity goals. One of the few perks of moving around the holiday season is that you might be entitled to more time off from work—you’ll just have to prioritize moving over shopping during these breaks.

2. Stay Simple With the Decorations

residential movingDuring the holidays, many families make decorating a tradition, stringing up lights and decorating trees while enjoying time with one another. Remind the whole family that you already have your work cut out for you, and excessive decorations might hinder the moving process. Plus, you’ll have to take them down shortly after putting them up. In this case, suggest decorating your new residence once you arrive.

3. Don’t Skip the Holidays

While moving may be your main priority at the moment, it can turn from an exciting event to a dreaded one if it costs your family the holidays. Avoid creating a negative connotation around your move by allowing your loved ones to celebrate amidst the moving duties. You can even use these festive breaks as an incentive to work harder—for example, you can encourage your family to finish packing by the 23rd so you can enjoy a stress-free Christmas Eve and Day.
