What's more exciting than the holidays? Moving during the holidays! Nothing is more exhilarating than settling into your new home just in time to enjoy a special occasion with friends and family. Many Central Massachusetts homeowners choose to put off their move around these times, giving others the opportunity to hire an otherwise booked moving company.

Even so, there are some special considerations you'll have to make when planning a residential move during the holidays. With just a little forethought and planning though, it can be as seamless as any other time of the year. Here are three pro tips from Liberty Movers on how to prepare.

#1: Contact Your Moving and Storage Company Ahead of Time

While many long distance movers are available during the holidays, their employees may not be. Many people may be taking the chance to request some much-needed time off, leaving the moving company slightly understaffed. By scheduling your moving day early and informing the company, they'll be adequately prepared to help you out when you need it. If you let them know a little too late, they may not have the entire moving staff read, resulting in a delayed move.

#2: Save Time and Pack Your Central Mass Home Early

The holidays are all about spending quality time with friends and family. Don't fill up your entire schedule with tedious packing. By packing up your home and preparing it ahead of time, you'll ensure that you have all the free time you were hoping for as it gets closer to the holidays. Your immediate family, children, and friends will all be thankful that you had time in your schedule for them.

Additionally, consider asking your other family or friends to host holiday gatherings if you're normally the one to do so. Hosting a party while your house is in disarray is only going to result in added stress.

#3: Budget Your Holiday Spending

Many individuals go big during the holidays, spending a significant amount of money on gifts, dinners, and parties. Moving can be expensive in and of itself, so it's important that you keep a separate budget for it. Your moving expenses should be met before you begin spending extra money on the holidays, so by saving early and keeping a separate fund you'll know the money is there.
