Just like that, the holidays have somehow passed us by and now we’re gearing up for the rest of the winter months as we head into 2021.
Although the holidays were a bit different than most years, there’s still a good chance that some decorations and other holiday items were brought out around the home to bring some holiday cheer. Whether it’s decorations, furniture that needs to be rearranged, or just determining what to do with old items you’re replacing with new gifts – packing away the holiday season can be tiresome.
Thankfully, we’re here to point you in the right direction with a few packing and storage tips to make the process a little more manageable.
Develop a plan
When completing a packing job, it’s always best to come up with a plan that you can follow and execute. Packing is a process, and not always a quick endeavor. It’s important to keep this in mind as you go along.
Assess the areas where you will be packing stuff away, pick a starting point, and go room-by-room throughout your home or business. This will help you tackle the packing process in chunks, and will help you stay organized.
Pack with efficiency
This is another extremely important thing to keep in mind when packing. Holiday decorations and other items of that nature tend to be a little more fragile, so using care while packing is a must to prevent them from breaking.
Use professional packing supplies to keep everything safe and protected. Packing paper, tissue paper, and bubble wrap go great with quality moving boxes to help keep your items from breaking during packing and when they go into storage. This also makes it even easier for the next holiday season when you’re unpacking and putting out your décor.

Use professional moving boxes
Building off the point above, high-quality moving boxes are ideal for safety and protection. They stack nicely and ensure your items will be protected as they are stored for the year.
Quality moving boxes – like the ones we offer to customers – will give you the peace of mind that your keepsakes are packed away safely as they’re put into a closest, attic, basement, or storage area. Be sure to label these boxes accurately so that next holiday season, you know where everything is.
Rearranging or putting furniture back into storage
If you displayed extra furniture for more seating during the holidays, that means you’ll need to get it back into storage at some point. Or you might need an extra hand with rearranging it in your home.
Regardless of the type of furniture you have – don’t move more than you can handle. If you have too much or something too heavy to move, give us a call – our movers can come to your home and move whatever you need! This includes moving items around within your home or to a storage facility.
