    Moving can be stressful! Planning a move during the holidays? It can seem like a nightmare but unfortunately, it sometimes can’t be avoided. Don’t worry, we’re here to help! We’ve compiled a list of helpful tips to take a bit of the stress off of holiday moving, stay organized, and spend time with your family and friends.

    Write Everything Down (Even the small things)

    Make a to-do list of everything you’ll need to get done between now and your move. Check and see how much time you have before your move and add that to your calendar. Include every date that you’ll need to remember and give yourself deadlines for certain tasks! However, don’t rush the process. Holidays can be stressful enough as it is.

    Avoid Hosting the Family Gatherings

    Planning Thanksgiving or Christmas Eve dinner at your home during a big move? Not the best idea! Skipping the holidays entirely? Another bad idea! You’ll want the time to relax and celebrate with your family. Talk with your family members about hosting it at one of their homes (and promising that you’ll have everyone over next year!) If you’re completely set on still having it at your home, get everyone to bring their favorite dish or have the event catered. The last thing you want to worry about is if your turkey is “just right” for Grandma Jean or Uncle Tommy.

    Pack in Shifts!

    Do NOT pack everything at once. Separate your to-do list by rooms! Deciding you’re going to be Superman (or woman) and pack the entire house in one day is the fastest way to burn out. You can start with the guest rooms, storage areas, and closets first! 

    Hire a Full Service Moving Company

    This might be the best way to rid of stress if you plan on moving this holiday season! Hiring a full service moving company, like Park Moving, can be a lifesaver whether you’re moving across the street or across the country. We offer packing and unpacking services, loading and unloading services, storage options, and furniture assembly.

    Four guys came from Park moving 2 weeks ago to move my family. Not only were they efficient and hard working, but extremely friendly and accommodating. I will absolutely be using them in the future when we get moved into our new home. We checked with several places before deciding on this company and I'm very pleased with our decision. I highly recommend Park Moving to anyone looking for moving services.
