TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® moving and storage solutions to prepare for the holiday season!

December is in full swing, the snow is falling (for some of us), and the holiday cheer is abundant which can only mean one thing – Christmas is near!

If you haven’t already, it’s time to get a jump on your Christmas preparation! Get those decorations out of storage, get your furniture ready and arranged for your holiday parties, and make sure you are ready to spread that Christmas spirit. While TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is known for our outstanding local moving services, we also specialize in home moving, and can help assist you with anything you may need as you prepare for Christmas.

Having your home looking festive and ready for the holidays is a must, and there’s a lot more into decorating than you might think. From getting the lights and trees out of the attic to making sure you have your furniture in the right place – and enough furniture for everyone – there’s a lot of moving involved, and it’s important to maximize the space in your home.

What better way to prepare for all of this than with a special, Christmas-themed TWO MEN AND A TRUCK song on how to prepare for holiday moving?

We’ve also put together an expert list of moving tips for you to follow to make sure everything is on track and ready to go. If you need help with your home moving during the holiday, be sure to reach out to your local TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchise and see how they can help move you forward this Christmas!

Rearranging your furniture

This comes as no surprise, but your Christmas tree and other holiday decorations can take up additional space you don’t normally have to account for during the rest of the year, which can lead to your furniture needing to be shuffled around to make room.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s professionally trained moving teams can come to your house and help get that large couch or table in exactly the right spot so you’re able to properly accommodate your guests.

Have extra furniture available!

Christmas parties can include a lot of extended family and extra guests, and making sure everyone has a place to sit is important. If you have extra furniture in an attic, storage facility, or out in the garage, our movers would be more than willingly to help bring it inside and place it accordingly.

Make sure to have extra boxes

Storage is at a premium during the holidays, and you want to make sure you have enough boxes to safely put everything away. It’s better to have the boxes and not need them then to need them and not have them, so make sure you’re prepared to put away all of your lights, ornaments, and other Christmas decorations.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK offers a wide variety of moving and specialty boxes, and we can deliver these right to your home at your convenience!

Gift delivery

Did you make a special gift purchase for someone this year such as a large piece of furniture, appliance, or other heavy object that you aren’t sure how you’ll transport? You’ve come to the right place!

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK now offers a pickup and delivery service to handle this very problem. We can pick up the large object you’ve bought, deliver it right to your home (or wherever needed), and help bring it inside and set it up.

This eliminates the hassle – and potential danger – of trying to do it yourself, allowing you to shift your focus elsewhere!

Preparing home for the holidays

Written by Claire Schneider

I love this time of year! Everyone is cheerfully awaiting the holidays, sitting by a fire, drinking hot cocoa, and making plans to spend cherished time with loved ones.  Unfortunately, with all the excitement enters stress, especially if you’re playing host or hostess. Don’t fret; I’ve come up with some inspiration ideas for getting your home holiday ready.

Exuberant entry

Fall WreathThe front entry really sets the festive tone of your home. Adding a few potted evergreen plants beside a door truly makes an entry more inviting. The added benefit of potted evergreens are their ability to transcend more than a single holiday. Display the plants for Thanksgiving, then add a strand of lights and ornaments for a whole new look for Christmas. A wreath is also a nice and simple decoration to add. There are myriad styles and themes of wreaths out there, too! This year I decided to tap into my creative side and make my own. If you love crafts like me, it is simple to make customize your wreath. I visited my local arts and crafts store, selected a medium-sized, plain wreath, and selected little items I could apply with my hot glue gun. It was a wonderful feeling seeing it take shape, and I placed it on our door for the neighborhood to behold.  I also plan to make another for Christmas.

HolidayFrontEntryIt’s important to recreate the warmness of the entry in your foyer. If you live in a colder climate, clear a space in the coat closet for guests. Designate an area where visitors can place their wet shoes, and provide a basket for mittens and hats. This will help you maintain a tidy and organized entry while you entertain. Music is also an essential component of the holiday atmosphere, engaging one of your guests’ key senses. Power up your iPod and select a favorite holiday playlist as  guests enter the party, grab a glass of cheer, and mingle with each other.

Genuinely gifted

HolidayEntryTreeAs we all know the holidays are a time for giving in every sense of the word. A unique way to welcome guests is to set out a decorative bowl filled with small gifts. You can incorporate the gifts into your décor by wrapping them in festive wrapping or patterned paper from a stationary store. Gifts could be tiny boxes of candy, cards, mini games, small gift cards, and puzzles. If you have adequate space, place a small tree on a table and surround it with the gifts. This will be a pleasant surprise your visitors weren’t expecting.

Delightful de-clutter

Now that your guests have been awed by the grand entrance and are working their way to the main living space, ensure they are comfortable. De-cluttering your home may seem overwhelming, but by setting aside an hour to go through the main rooms of your home, your guests will feel the serenity of the space.  Rid the gathering rooms of unnecessary items and be sure there is enough sitting room and walkways for guests to chat and relax. Since the holidays are a time of giving, it is the perfect time to donate any unwanted items.

Festive feast

HolidayCenterPieceWhen setting the holiday table, be mindful of the details.  I love including candles to my centerpieces since they provide a warm and intimate ambience.  One of my favorite centerpiece ideas is to place candles in vases, lining the edges with acorns. I did this for Thanksgiving one year, and it was a simple project which produced rave reviews from my guests.  As the Christmas season commences, spruce up the centerpiece ornaments around the base of the vases. If you are arranging a formal place setting, spruce it up adding holly or greens. You can also transform an pine cone or ornament into name card holders. Taking a few extra minuets will show your visitors you care and are glad they’re celebrating with you.

Blissful bathroom

The guest bath and powder room are perfect places to infuse a little merriment.  The addition of seasonally scented candles, a small poinsettia plant, and other little touches will drastically transform the room. Remember to replace old towels with festive, new ones and clear the counter of unnecessary items. I also love having a small basket of toiletries on the counter in the event your guests forget to pack important items.

By taking a little initiative to focus on key areas of your home, your holiday event will indeed be one to remember. For even more holiday inspiration, follow us on Pinterest.
