Moving During the Holidays: Here’s What to Know

The holiday season can be stressful enough with nights out, present buying and decorating. If you decide to move over the Christmas period, it can add further stress. At American Way and Van, we know just how important it is to be organized during a move, which is why we’ve put together top tips on how to handle a seasonal move and enjoy it at the same time.

Put up Decorations Where Possible

Understandably, you may not have the room to erect a Christmas tree during a festive move, but try and keep the holiday spirit alive by decorating where possible. Consider decorating the inside of your car, play Christmas music in the background or even just change your phone wallpaper to something Christmassy. It’ll keep you merry while you organize and pack.

Wrap Before You Pack


If you choose to move during the gift-giving season, try and have all your gifts wrapped before you begin packing. This will not only keep you organized but once they are wrapped, you can put them to one side and get on with that all-important packing process.

Attend Holiday Events When Possible

Moving home at the most festive time of year is far from joyous. Attending local events and festive activities will keep spirits high and provide you with a much-needed break from packing. Check out what’s on in your area and enjoy yourself!


Ask for Help

Moving during Christmas can be incredibly tough, but you don’t have to suffer it alone. First, consider asking close friends and family and offer nibbles and drinks in return. Alternatively, enlist the help of a professional mover who can help make your holiday move run smoothly. At American Way and Van, we can help you move throughout the entire year, so to find out more, call us today at 937-898-7294.
