They say that home is where the heart is, but 23% of U.S.-born adults say that where they're currently living isn't the place they consider to be home in their heart. For many people, it's especially important to feel at home during the holiday season.

If you're planning to move house or move your business this holiday season, you may find your holiday routine interrupted by the preparations you need to make. You can cross one stressful thing off your to-do list by hiring the most experienced home or business moving services San Diego has to offer. But to ensure that you can still find comfort and joy -- and keep your sanity -- this holiday season, here are three tips to make sure your December-January move goes as smoothly as possible:

  • Schedule accordingly

    If you can, schedule your moving services for the week between Christmas and New Year's. Not only will this mean you can still celebrate the holidays in your current home or office environment, but it also tends to be a slower week for home and office movers. That usually results in both better availability and possibly even a better price. However, you should do your research well ahead of time to make sure the moving company of your choice will be open and able to accommodate your request during this time of year.

  • Pack early (but leave some things 'til last)

    The holidays tend to be filled with obligations and various stresses. To cut down on last-minute scrambling, start packing up your home or offices early. However, consider keeping up your holiday decorations for as long as you can. That way, you can make the most of the last days there and continue to feel festive until the last moment. If you're moving before or during Christmas, make sure to pack decorations together, label, and keep them handy for your new place. You'll be able to start feeling more festive and right at home immediately after you arrive.

  • Keep things simple

    ...But don't forget to celebrate! Even if you've hired the best residential or business moving services San Diego has to provide, you'll still be stressed if you overextend yourself before your move. If you normally host a big holiday dinner or office party, consider paring things down a bit this year to relieve unnecessary tension. Call upon family members or coworkers to help or adjust your usual plans. You should still celebrate the season, but try to scale things down a bit.
