Removal companies are usually busy all year round, however at Christmas even more so. This is because people want to get into their new homes in time for the festivities and also so they can have time to settle before Santa comes. People also want to be moved in by the New Year so that they can start fresh without the stress of moving hungover. Therefore, there are often more last minute moves at this time of year.

If you are moving close to Christmas this year, take into account what a busy time this can be and try to be flexible about moving dates and times so that your removal company can fit you in easier.

You should also take into account the weather. If the weather is set to be icy on your moving day, put down some rock salt on your driveway so that it is less slippery when your possessions are being loaded into the removal van. This will help to prevent accidents that may hurt people and/or damage your items. You could also put salt down on the pavement outside of your property to make it easier for your removal van to pull on to your driveway. If you do not have a driveway, apply salt to your front path and the space outside that is intended for your removal van to park in. It is also important to stay in touch with your removal company to let them know of any change in your moving plans. If you decide that you want to change the time or date of your move, you should let them know as soon as you can so that they can make arrangements. Lastly, it is important to understand that this Christmas won’t be well planned and perfect because you will have a lot of things to do for the move. It is important to put spending time with your loved ones first over putting up your decorations and unpacking all of your stuff.
