The holidays are a season of great cheer, but can also be stressful. Did you know that the holidays are also one of the most common times of year for moving? Today, Busy Buddies, provider of quality elderly moving services, discusses the pros and cons of moving during the holidays to help you decide if it’s the right decision for you.
The holidays have a way of bringing out the good in people, and this is certainly something you can benefit from if you decide to move during the season. People are more amenable to lending a helping hand, so you may be able to count on friends and family to help you pack or give you a home to stay in as you transition from one location to another.
Since you’ll be preoccupied with your move, especially if you’re moving elderly parents, you’ll have an excuse to avoid some of the pressure of the holidays as well. Maybe you’ll be too busy packing so you won’t feel bad about declining an invitation to a party you don’t even want to go to, or you’ll forgo buying gifts to save up for your move. Your focus on moving lowers your expectations for the holidays, which can actually help you enjoy the season more.
On the downside, you can succumb to the stress of the holidays when you add more pressure to the season by fitting in a move. There’s also heavier traffic on the road to be expected, especially during weekends, and winter weather can also be a cause of more delays. Moving during the holidays also means you may spend more because moving services may be more expensive.
