Moving during any time of the year can feel stressful and even overwhelming, but moving over the holidays can feel especially hectic. That said, if you are relocating your home during the holiday season, there are a few things you can do to make the move a little less stressful.


Your friends at Gorilla Movers of Wisconsin know a thing or two about moving, which is why we’re sharing a few helpful hints to ensure your holiday move goes as smoothly as possible. Keep reading to learn more, and get in touch with your trusted local moving company in Wisconsin to get a free estimate.

Start Packing Early

Packing is one of the most time-consuming tasks of any move, so starting early is key! The sooner you start packing, the more organized you will be by moving day, which can alleviate a lot of unwanted stress. Better yet, with most of the packing out of the way, you will have more time to spend enjoying the holidays with your loved ones without feeling guilty about all the things you have left to do to prepare for moving day.

Tip: Pack all of your holiday items in clearly labeled, easy to access boxes, so you can still enjoy some simple decorations and wrap presents without the hassle of searching for the supplies. That said, make your move a merry one by listening to holiday music while you pack and clean to keep you in the holiday spirit.

Not only that, if you want to eliminate the stress of packing, we can help! DIY packing can take weeks or longer, whereas our professional packers can pack all of your belongings quickly and efficiently with the utmost care and precision so you can spend more time enjoying the holidays with your loved ones.

Donate Unwanted Items

Moving is a great time to downsize and simplify your home. Rather than simply tossing out items you no longer want or need, donate them! Not only is donating used treasures a great and easy way to eliminate clutter, but it also aligns perfectly with the spirit and the season of giving! Not to mention that your gently used and salvageable items may become someone else’s treasure or an affordable gift.

Tip: If you have time and it works well with your schedule, drive your unwanted items to a neighborhood donations box, or to a second-hand store with a drop-off. If you’re pressed for time, get in touch with a local charity like Goodwill or The Salvation Army and schedule a pick up free of charge!

Make Your Move a Festive One

We all need some holiday cheer this time of year — especially this year. While moving during the holidays may make it challenging to keep up with your holiday traditions such as decorating, hosting family gatherings, and making all those delicious meals we all look forward to all year long, don’t give up on these entirely! Make your move festive by simplifying some of your traditions, which can help make the holiday moving experience much more enjoyable.

Tip: If you love decorating your home, keep it simple with a small tree, a wreath, and a few decorations that can be easily taken down and packed into a single box. As far as the holiday feast goes, you may have all of your kitchenware packed away, so instead — order in! After all, it’s not the food that makes the memories, it’s the time you spend enjoying it with your loved ones that makes a holiday feast memorable.

Hire A Moving Company

One of the best ways to simplify your holiday move is to hire a local moving company to do the heavy lifting for you. Not only do professional movers like us have all the necessary equipment, supplies, trucks, and manpower to shoulder the weight of your move, but we can also help you move locally, statewide, or regionally — and we do it all within your budget. Plus, we love what we do!
