Availability of Family & Friends
Memorial Day Weekend is usually a time for fun and relaxation. Your friends and family may have already made plans to celebrate the holiday, so asking ahead is a must.
Why not turn your holiday move weekend into a Memorial Day celebration? Plan a backyard cookout before you pack the BBQ and outdoor furniture and invite your family & friends over for “move-barbeque” event. Make it a BBQ-potluck and ask your guests to bring a salad or dessert!
Holiday Store Closures
Stock up on as many last minutes moving items as possible. I am referring to packing tape, boxes, furniture pads, moving blankets and such. There may be stores that stock these items, which will be closed for the holiday.
Stewart Moving & Storage also provides online ordering of packing supplies – affordable rates for packing, storage, moving and more!
The packing & moving supplies are extremely important but don’t forget the other essentials that will keep your agile body moving, such as water, healthy snacks and possibly pre-made iced coffee.
Holiday Road Closures
Memorial Day Weekend has been known to celebrate with festivals, parades and other means of celebrations – so be aware of road closures and timely delays.

If you are moving to Pensacola, Florida or leaving the beautiful city, keep in mind that the holidays are a busy time to travel and long-distance traveling may require you book a room. Please be advised to book your room way in advance to avoid no vacancies – worst yet – having to sleep in your car. It can happen, so avoid the unfortunate incidents by planning ahead.
Drunk Drivers/Reckless Drivers
Statistics have shown that driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol rise drastically over holiday weekends.
If you are not able to wrap up your move the day before Memorial Day festivities, be aware of your surroundings and stay alert. Stewart Moving & Storage shares the following common sense tips with you – Be cautious at intersections, click your seatbelt, allow a generous following distance from the car in front of you and avoid driving at night.
Have a safe and stress-free move. You can do this!
