September is nearly over, and that means that the holidays aren’t too far away. Before you know it, it will be November and you’ll be picking out the turkey you’re going to cook for the big family meal. However, if you’re planning to move before the holidays, there’s much more on your plate than a turkey leg. At Billy Goat Moving in Fort Collins, we want to make your move as easy as possible, no matter what time of year it happens to be.
Where to Begin?
It’s hard enough to know where to begin when you’re moving in the middle of July, but what about when you’re moving at the end of October or beginning of November? For a pre-holiday move, start by packing up those things that you won’t need right away in your new house. Begin in the basement, the closets, and the garage, going through items that you won’t need until spring or summer comes back around.
If you’re moving to another town in Colorado, you’ll want to be sure your winter clothing is easily accessible. You’ll need it once colder weather arrives, and you don’t want to have to dig through boxes and suitcases to find it.
As for your holiday decorations, you’ll want to make sure those are accessible as well. It’s likely that they’re stored in the basement or the garage, which you’re going to tackle first, so setting them aside and putting them on the truck last will mean you can get to them right away in your new home. If you move in before December, putting up your decorations can make your new house truly feel like a home.
Make Plans Now
Moving away from family and friends can make it difficult to celebrate the holidays the way you want to. Instead of letting moving day grow closer without making arrangements, begin setting plans now for how and where you will spend the holidays. Will you be close enough that you can drive back for the family gathering? Will you be settled enough in your new place that you can have everyone come to your house? Having those plans made can take some of the stress out of moving around the holidays.
Speaking of making plans, it’s a good idea to find a reputable moving company now rather than later. You never want to leave this detail until the last minute, which is especially true around the holidays. At Billy Goat, we can provide you with a fair and competitive quote and help you find a moving date that works with your busy holiday schedule.
We can also provide you with professional packing services, and if you’re not able to take everything with you to your new house right away, we can help you find the right storage solution, either in our warehouse or with another location in Northern Colorado. Above all, we want you to be able to focus on what’s most important – enjoying the holidays.
