Since most people move between the months of May and September, the winter can be a great time to move. It’s also a pretty slow time for apartment hunting so you can usually get a good deal and save on your moving costs.
However, there is a downside to moving in the winter, you’re moving in the winter! As most New Englanders know, you can be enjoying the sun one moment and the next be in the middle of a blizzard. Here are a few moving tips for a smooth winter transition:
- It’s important to keep an eye on the weather reports in the area you’re move to and from. The weather can change at any moment so you’ll want to check on the weather the week of to the day of your move. You’ll always want to watch the traffic reports. Less than perfect weather can bring out some bad drivers so you’ll want to avoid streets that might be congested from traffic.
- Make sure you don’t pack any of your winter supplies. Things such as a shovel or ice scraper will come in handy if it decides to snow the day of your move. By keeping your winter supplies unpacked, you won’t have to rummage through boxes looking for it. It’s also a good idea to keep salt handy to melt any ice and keep your movers safe.
- While it will probably be cold out while you’re moving, there’s still a chance of overheating. By dressing in layers, you can remove any unnecessary layers while moving. It’s also a good idea to keep your door open to balance the temperature from inside and outside your home.
- The most important tip we can suggest is to hire a professional! There are many benefits from hiring a moving company such as no heavy lifting for you and a faster move.
