As Christmas is fast approaching us, we should think about decorations and Christmas trees. However, when moving house, we have to think of wrapping and moving them, rather than decorating. Of course, once the move is made, decorating will take place.
In this brief guide, we talk about moving an artificial Christmas tree. You can do it by hiring professional movers like the H2H team or do it on your own.
If you hire the H2H team, we suggest you contact their website with more details on your dates and timeframes.
But if you decide to do it on your own, take a look at the steps down below. Stay tuned!
Packing an Artificial Christmas Tree
The first thing you should do is disassemble the tree.
You can begin by taking the highest and smallest piece of the tree and placing it aside. Then you should push the branches of the piece towards its center, so it can be easier to wrap later on.
Once that is done, take some plastic wrap and begin wrapping the tree from the bottom to the very top.
Once that is done, you should disassemble the rest by taking away each section and wrapping it up.
When you are at the widest sections, you should squeeze the branches together and start wrapping from the trunk to the top piece.
Finally, you should get a box or container to put the tree in when you are done. You can get special storage bags for Christmas trees, too.
Note: there are some trees that are one piece and can’t be disassembled. For them, you should squeeze the branches, wrap them with the plastic wrap in one movement from bottom to top.
Now that your tree is all squeezed together, you can get plenty of room in the box for Christmas lights or more miniature decorations. Just don’t overpack since you can crush or break something, and you don’t want to break an old heirloom Christmas ornament.
Generally, this was our small guide on wrapping up and moving your artificial Christmas tree. Of course, it’s not the same as getting a real one that smells like pinecone and Christmas, but it’s better for the environment and your wallet.
Have yourself a merry little Christmas and happy moving!
