Planning your move during the winter months has its advantages and disadvantages. You might be able to save a few bucks, but you aren’t able to always count on cooperative temperatures.
Even though a winter move might include some unwanted weather, there are plenty of ways to make the best it!
Let’s cover some of the basic’s for your winter move.
4 Winter Moving Tips
1. Expect Delays
Experienced moving companies are professional planners, so you can be assured that your team will have back up plans in case inclement weather strikes; however, ice and snow can delay your moving team or the moving process itself.
If you plan on a winter move you should leave some wiggle room for improvisation. Even the best planners can’t predict the weather!
2. Keep it Safe
Winter weather doesn’t need to foil your plans entirely if you have the right supplies. When theres snow on the ground, you will want to create a barrier between your floor and the constant foot traffic that takes place throughout the moving process.
You should use tarps or cardboard to protect flooring and plastic covers for furniture and electronics.
3. The Early Bird Gets the Worm
Keep in mind, scheduling a move in the afternoon could mean a portion of your move takes place when the sun goes down. Moving in the morning allows you plenty of day light hours! If your move is a little more involved, an early start may make more sense.
4. Don’t be Afraid to Schedule a Winter Move
Although you are faced with a few extra details depending on the weather, planning a winter move isn’t a bad idea. Winter moves are more flexible because the summer months are a busier time to plan a move.
