While other people unpack their holiday decorations and prepare for the annual festivities, you are stuck with the unpleasant task to pack your household and move. The fact you are going to relocate to one of the most charming towns in the UK doesn’t give much comfort when it is during the holiday season. Alas, it must be done, and you just need to make the best out if this situation. Fortunately for you, we have gathered some moving tips that will make the home removal to Bournemouth much more jolly.
It is a well-known fact the house move is the perfect pretext to get rid of all unwanted and unused items in the home. People often start to sell their belongings months before the actual relocations even begin. However, we are offering you an alternative in the holiday spirit of giving – donate to your local charity organisations or crisis centres. Yes, you can earn a couple of bucks by selling your old toaster or clothes but would it be better to help someone less fortunate than you? Plus, the fewer boxes you transport, the less you will pay to your movers in the end.
Pack some holiday decorations that can travel with you in the car. It would be good to always be prepared If something went wrong and you are forced to celebrate Christmas at a hotel. Some small ornaments and one or two glowing lights are enough to lift your spirits up and fill your heart with joy. Plus, the kids will love it. Travel with a box with holiday essentials so it will be easy to decorate your new Bournemouth home upon arrival. This can be a fun family activity and can help reduce the build-up stress from the relocation.
The good news is with so many boxes your children will definitely fail to find them in advance. However, the tricky part is to know exactly where you have placed the Christmas gifts. Here are some inventive ways to identify the gift boxes:
The holiday season is upon us, and do you know what else is upon us? Flu season! Moving during the winter months means you will spend a lot of time outside. Make sure you are always wrapped well in warm clothes. We suggest getting at least one wool layer on you, as this natural fabric will preserve the warmth of your body.
When packing makes sure to prepare your hand luggage accordingly. Put at least one pair of extra socks, gloves and sweaters. Get some basic coughing and flu medicine. If the drive to Bournemouth is going to be a long one, consider preparing some hot drinks. The most unpleasant thing that can happen to you is to switch homes while sick and during the holidays. So take proper care of yourself and your loved ones.
