  • Boston, MA-NH (1888PressRelease) December 15, 2010 - Humboldt Storage and Moving, greater Boston's oldest moving company, agent of United Van Lines and experts in low-stress moving, wants to share some of their advice for making moving during the holiday season a little less stressful. Below are tips and more can be found at

    When packing up your belongings, or planning the packing process, make sure that the items that you will need for the holidays - such as decorations, cold weather clothing, and shovels - are easily accessible. This will make it much easier to prepare your new home for the holidays and cold weather.

    Make sure to keep in mind the dates of your move, because this will directly impact your holiday. The unpacking process is very time consuming and can leave your house in disarray for a considerable period of time, which can create additional stress when you factor in house guests and hectic holiday planning. This is also a busy time for your moving company, so make sure you schedule the movers in advance to ensure you get the exact dates you desire for your move.

    If you are moving a long distance or internationally, remember it will take much longer for your items to arrive at the new house, especially since companies are closed for some holidays and drivers get Christmas Day off.

    Also, do not forget about the snow that is synonymous with the season in some parts of the country. Clearing and salting of walkways is the responsibility of the customer, not the moving company, so make sure that both your new home and your old home are prepared for the movers to arrive.
