Moving over the holidaysBy Julie DeLong, Oil Capitol Relocation 

As we talked about in our blog post earlier this month, a holiday move to Tulsa is usually hectic, challenging, and seem somewhat intimidating at first glance. Nevertheless, there can be a few benefits to picking a holiday move if you play your cards right. There are particular steps you can take to make it easier on yourself and your family members, and that may perhaps make the move more enjoyable than one at a different time of year - let us discuss our 5 ideas to making your move to Tulsa over the holidays as straightforward as it can be.

Recycle cartons

It seems like everyone has performed this year’s shopping online. Christmas and birthday presents for yourself and other folks appear on your doorstep, and it is great - until you open them all up and have a stack of cardboard boxes 6 feet high to contend with.

Usually, you'd probably recycle those cardboard boxes and obtain your moving cardboard boxes from your local home improvement store or your professional moving company in Tulsa, however if you are moving over the holiday season you'll be able to re-purpose those cartons as moving boxes to not only stretch your budget, but to reduce your carbon footprint!

Keep an eye on the weather

Weather conditions can be extremely flighty within the holiday season, regardless of where you call home. Make sure you keep an eye on the weather channel as best you are able to, to plan accordingly for extreme weather like snow, wind, or lightning storms that make it hard for even professional moving companies in Tulsa to accomplish the job well.

Donate gently used items to decrease the quantity of things you must move

Normally, we recommend people to pare down the number of things they must move in advance of when it's time to go not just to cut costs, but to simplify the moving process. Garage sales and estate sales are routine when the residents are moving, yet deciding to donate your gently used pieces of furniture (or smaller things such as garments) that you no longer need or won't be taking with you is an excellent approach to embody the Holiday spirit and bless somebody in need. Quite a few donation facilities encourage donations particularly around the holidays; try to find one in your area!

Combine your holiday greeting card together with your life update

Many people send Christmas cards out to friends and family to wish them a Merry Christmas and update them on what is going on in their lives. Without doubt, a change of residence shall be contained in that update! Nevertheless, many believe that a mention of the move will likely suffice, and choose to send out another update of address notice to those people who have to have it. For anyone who is moving any other time that approach works, but you can kill two birds with one stone should you be moving over the holidays. Include your change of address announcement within your holiday card (or inside the same envelope should you wish to have them at least a bit separate) to lower postage and also time.

Engage a Professional Moving Company Now

Professional movers do take the chance to grant their employees vacation time around the holidays, to allow them to spend time with their families and get some well-deserved downtime. As a result, moving companies are typically thinly staffed over the holidays and might have less availabilities for moving jobs. Once you establish a date for your move, book your moving company in Tulsa ASAP so they can make certain to staff your move enough in advance.
