Moving Home for Christmas with CWraight Removals Company

Moving Home for Christmas? It’s that time of the year again! You will soon be knee deep in wrapping paper, unwritten cards, decorations and list upon list. In many ways Christmas is like moving house: there’s a lot of planning, a fair amount of stress, but the end result is invariably worth it. 

And some brave souls manage to combine both projects by arranging their home move just before Christmas. The prospect of being able to put up your tree in your new living room, or eating that Christmas turkey in your new dining area is plenty of motivation to get your move finished before December 25. And with a bit of planning, it can be done. 

As a long-established London removals company, we’ve helped countless people pull off a hassle-free Christmas move. That’s why we’ve put together a handy list of Christmas move tips to ensure that you’ll be eating mince pies in your new property long before Santa wriggles down the chimney.

Planning, planning, planning

Santa doesn’t leave anything to chance when planning his deliveries, and neither should you. Like your Christmas preparations, getting ready for a home move requires meticulous preparation, and it’s never too early to start. Go through every conceivable aspect of the move and double check that you have covered everything. Of course, there will often be something unwelcome that crops up like a hand-knitted Christmas gift, but by preparing well, you can keep last-minute hassle to a minimum. 

Pre-Christmas de-clutter

Not only is de-cluttering good for the soul, it’s also good for the bank balance. Moving home is the perfect time to sort through your possessions and either donate them to charity or sell them on. Unlike Santa, you want to be travelling as light as possible on your Christmas journey. 

Pack the halls

Of course, Santa relies on his helpful elves, and while the CWraight staff are not quite as brightly dressed, they do have unrivaled packing expertise and can help you to get your possessions loaded up safely in the shortest possible time, leaving you more freedom to organise your Christmas. 

It’s a good idea to have a box of festive decorations with you, so you can put them up as soon as you arrive at your new home. And make sure you keep a moving day and first night essentials box to hand, with everything you need to ensure that you can settle in as quickly as possible. 

Capturing the Christmas atmosphere

We know that moving house at Christmas is not ideal. So why not make the day more festive with a yuletide-themed playlist of your favourite Christmas songs. And the combination of a new home and Christmas offers the perfect opportunity to get to know your new neighbours with a combined House Warming and Christmas Party. Just don’t forget the mince pies!
