Should I Move to Tulsa Over the Holidays?

Moving over the holidaysby Julie DeLong, Oil Capitol Relocation 

Well, you are moving to Tulsa--when's the best time to pack up and head out? Your initial inclination might be to go over the holiday season, since the kids are out of school, you've got some vacation time, and why not? Your next inclination, the one you should go with, says no, wait until after the start of the year. Naturally, 2020 is unique; you have all been working from home and learning for many months on end and albeit, you need a change of scenery. The quicker the better. However, patiently waiting a few weeks might be the better call in the long term.

One thing before we start all the motives to stay put through the New Year--while Covid is the bogeyman in the shadows, these points are evergreen--just in 2020, you should refrain from travel and also being near new people whenever possible.


Yes, moving companies in Tulsa do operate during the holidays, however their teams also take time off. In the best of periods, you need to book your movers a few months in advance; from late November through early January they may be operating with a smaller crew, much like everybody else. Therefore, hold off until most people are back on the job to schedule your trek. Should you be dead focused on moving in late December, make sure to get it on your professional mover’s calendar sooner than later.


People will travel over the holidays in 2020, regardless of what the CDC suggests. However people who might typically take a flight seem to be choosing to drive this year--airlines have severely limited flights, making flying just about anywhere a challenge. Driving will mean more time on the road and overnights on the road, consequently anticipate places to stay to be booked. Accommodations alongside interstates and busy highways tend to be busier than you may realize during the holidays at any rate, meaning the nightly charges increase. Unless you have already locked in your booking, count on paying a premium for rooms right by ice machines and also elevators.

Winter Weather

The way 2020 is looking, there could well be hurricanes in the gulf and snow storms in the Midwest competing for the Weather Channel's recognition. Snow and ice will always be a threat throughout the winter months, and you have to have a Plan B if the storm comes towards you while you are in the heart of moving. Over the holidays you're operating on heightened emotions and adrenaline even when you aren't moving, so why would you put on the strain of a move? The last thing you will want is for the stockings that you had planned to hang by the new chimney with care to end up being delayed with a freak ice storm, thus stay put, hang the stockings, and deal with the boxes later.

Enjoy Your Holidays

Lastly, since this is your very last Christmas in your old residence, take time to appreciate it. Decorate your residence as usual, make the pastries as well as the turkey, and do all the things that are your traditions. The holidays are rife with nostalgia, anyway, so do not sweep all those thoughts under the rug simply because you will be moving. I wouldn't recommend stewing in every single memory (this is where the tree dropped off the roof of the car), but definitely give yourself and your loved ones the area to stroll down memory lane as much as they like. Spend time with friends, hang your stockings, and when it is all over, pack up like you usually do.

Here's a bonus--this is the opportunity to dispose off all your worn old decorations and dim bulb strands--you surely do not want to move that!
