Happy Holidays! Despite the chill in the air, at Square Cow Movers this is our favorite time of year. It’s a time for us to remember all the important people in our lives and celebrate life in general.
In our busy world it’s easy to get wrapped up in our to-do lists and spend so much time running around that we rarely slow down to appreciate things. This time of year is definitely busy, especially if you’re moving during the holidays, but Christmas Day is one of those rare occasions where being with friends and family is really all you have to do. The agenda is cleared, the to-do list is tucked away and work can wait until tomorrow.
Never is this truer than when you’re making a holiday move. Because a move can come with additional stress, it’s important to step away from the moving duties and relax every now and then. Christmas Day is a time to recharge, give yourself a much needed break and focus on family instead of packing everything up.
Christmas is one of the few days that our moving bovines also take a break. They kick their hooves up, surround themselves with loved ones and celebrate the special occasion. We hope everyone is as lucky as the Square Cow Movers family this Christmas!
Post-Christmas Moving Tips
Our gift to all the movers this Christmas is a list of our top post-Christmas moving tips. Hopefully they make the remainder of the holidays a little more merrier!
Understand that help may be limited – Right after the holidays many people are still traveling, attending college bowl game parties and recovering from all the holiday cheer. It will be a little more difficult to find help loading and unloading everything. A professional moving company can help you get the job done more quickly so you can enjoy the rest of the holidays.
Traffic may be crazy – The day after Christmas traffic picks up in some areas, especially in the afternoon. People are heading back from spending the holidays with relatives, shoppers are out trying to get the best post-Christmas deals and others are just returning to their normal routine. Keep the high traffic areas in mind and avoid major highways if possible.
Keep in mind stores may still be closed – Many businesses return to business the day after Christmas, however some stay closed an extra day or two. This is heavily influenced by what day of the week Christmas falls on.
Take it easy if you have heart problems – Numerous reports have shown that there is a significant increase in cardio problems in the days right after Christmas. There are a few theories as to why this is, including the cold weather, overindulgence in libations and stress. If you have heart problems or feel off the day after Christmas don’t overexert yourself.
If you need extra help with a post-Christmas move give Square Cow Movers a call! It’s a gift that you’ll enjoy before, during and after the move!
