As December sweeps in, Maine’s landscape transforms with the anticipation of the upcoming holiday season. At MaineMoving, we recognize that December can be an opportune time for moving, whether it’s relocating to a new home, office, or preparing for a fresh start in the new year. Let’s explore some essential tips to ensure a smooth and stress-free moving experience this December.
1. Plan Ahead for Weather Challenges
December in Maine can bring unpredictable weather. Stay prepared by monitoring weather forecasts, especially if moving involves navigating potential snow or icy conditions.
2. Book Moving Services Early
Schedule your upcoming move with MaineMoving in advance. December tends to be a busy time for movers as families and businesses prepare for year-end transitions.
3. Declutter and Pack Strategically
Take advantage of the pre-holiday spirit to declutter. Donate or discard items no longer needed and pack strategically, labeling boxes according to rooms for easier unpacking.
4. Protect Fragile Items from Cold Weather
Fragile items, especially electronics and delicate possessions, should be packed and handled with care to protect them from potential damage due to temperature fluctuations. The moving pros at MaineMoving can help with packing services. Click here to learn more about our expert packing services!

6. Consider Storage Options for Seasonal Items
If your move involves downsizing or temporary accommodation, consider climate-controlled storage solutions for seasonal belongings until you’re settled in your new space.

Inform important contacts, such as banks, insurance providers, and subscriptions, about your change of address to avoid any disruptions in services.
8. Keep Essentials Accessible
Pack an essentials box containing items you’ll need immediately upon arrival at your new place, such as toiletries, medications, and essential documents. It’s a good idea to pack some extra warm clothing and maybe some hot cocoa as well!
