Think about your moving budget

Let’s start with packing!

- Clean and sturdy moving boxes
- Wrapping material, packing tapes, markers
Start with sorting and decluttering your home. When you throw away everything you don’t need anymore you can start packing for the move. The first pack all your unessential items and essentials leave for last. Make sure to label every box and to protect every fragile item with some wrapping material and tape. If you do it right, you will move during the holidays without headaches.
Think about the Weather
Unfortunately, the weather you cannot control on a moving day. If you are moving to somewhere colder, be prepared with clothes. But, if you are making a move to a warmer place such as Kuwait make sure to bring items you need such as light wardrobe and water. If you are expecting the rain, make sure to cover all your belongings to protect it. In case you don’t have enough space in your new home for seasonal clothes, think about warehouse Kuwait where you can store all the items you won’t use.
Prepare your children for the move during the holidays
Probably this is the toughest part of the move during the holidays. You have to prepare your children and help them choose a new school. Be patient and help them with this adjustment period. You can arrange a “see you soon” party and to invite all their friends to celebrate this new chapter of life. Explain to them that they can stay in touch with old friends while making new ones in a new place.
Think about the safety of your home
You should be aware that home invasions and robberies increase during the holiday season. If you want to prevent a similar problem, you should set up a security system after the move.
