Winter Moving Tips

Winter Moving Tips

Winter Moving Tips | Three Movers

Moving during the winter can be a tough task, particularly if you’re unprepared for what lies ahead. Some of the challenges include delayed delivery of your belongings, dangerous road conditions, icy driveways, and of course, the possibility of a storm on moving day. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of our best winter moving tips to help you make sure that you’re properly prepared for your move.

Be Flexible

Even for the most experienced moving company, winter can cause some problems. Delays due to weather are not uncommon and you should try to make arrangements for some flexibility in regard to your pickup and delivery timeframe. While most requests can be delivered on the expected day, that’s not always the case so having some wiggle room in your schedule can help you avoid the pitfalls of winter caused moving problems.

Be Prepared For the Weather

This tip is very important if you’re moving from a warmer climate to a colder one. Once moving day arrives, you’ll want to make sure you’re equipped with everything that’s needed. This includes things like a snow shovel or snow blower, some type of de-icing compound to help deal with slick sidewalks and driveways, and it’s not a bad idea to have an electric heater on hand either. Moving into a new home usual entails your door being open for an extended period of time while everything is moved off the truck and having a small heater to combat the elements is helpful.

Three Movers is a long distance moving company with more than 10 years of experience. Over our time in the business, we have helped people with every type of move you can imagine, from simple cross town moves to people who are moving all the way across the country.

Temperature that ensures your plumbing will be in good

Make Sure Utilities Are Hooked Up

Obviously you don’t want to move into a house in the dead of winter with no heat or the ability to cook food. Double check before your move that your utilities are hooked up and ready to go so that you’re not stuck in a freezing house, or worse, having your pipes freeze. If you know someone in the area you’re moving to, it can be a good idea to have them go by your new house and make sure everything is in working order. This way, they can set your thermostat to a temperature that ensures your plumbing will be in good order and your home is comfortable when you get there.

Dress Appropriately

Even with all the work that goes into moving, you’re going to want to make sure that you’re dressed appropriately to stay warm. You’ll likely be making several trips in and out of the house as you get everything situated and it’s not a task you want to take on in just a t-shirt. Check the local weather report and make sure that you and your family can stay bundled up enough to keep warm in cold weather climates.

Prepare Your Home For Movers

Once you’ve arrived at your home, you’ll want to make sure that the area is safe for moving heavy items, both for you and the movers. Clear away any snow so that there’s a path for the movers to go from the truck to the door. Likewise, you’ll want to check that there are no icy patches which can cause people to slip when moving boxes or furniture.
