The holidays are crazy enough, so add to them a residential move, and you may be feeling just a little stressed. Never fear! The moving pros at Nilson Van & Storage are here to offer our best tips for packing your holiday decorations for a move. Keep reading for the advice you need.
Have the Right Boxes and Materials on Hand
Being organized from the start of the packing process is essential for moving quickly and efficiently. Make sure you have plenty of boxes and packing supplies, so you don’t have to run out to the store in the middle of the process.
Understand that many of your holiday decorations will require special protection to stay intact and in proper shape and condition. Other than boxes of all shapes and sizes, you will want to include everything from tape and packing paper to bubble wrap and plastic baggies on your packing shopping list.
Avoid a Clark Griswold Situation
In case you aren’t a Christmas Vacation film fan, Griswold had a highly-entertaining, comical time untangling his 250 strands of Christmas lights. The best way to avoid this stressful, seemingly impossible task is to pack them up in an organized fashion. It can help to wrap the strands around a cardboard tube or square or even a book to keep them in place. Remember to store them in a waterproof tub or box to keep them safe.
Planning a residential move in the middle of the holidays may seem like something that could turn you into a Grinch, but it doesn’t have to be that way!
