Guide to Winter Moves

Winter moves are notorious for being more difficult than moves in other seasons. There are a few key things to keep in mind if you’re planning to move in the winter.

By monitoring the weather report and clearing your path (driveway and walkways), you can make sure that the movers have safe access to your home. 

Additionally, make arrangements for your pets and children as moving can be stressful for them as well. If you live in a gated community, check to see if there are any restrictions for moving trucks ahead of time. 

Make sure that your new home is warm and has enough space for the movers. 

Be aware of the potential damage that can be caused by extreme cold. Appliances such as washers, grandfather clocks, and waterbed mattresses should be handled with care to avoid any damage. Ice makers should also be handled with caution to prevent any frozen moisture from damaging the unit. 

Finally, be sure to let all electronics warm to room temperature before connecting them to power. 

Moving in the winter can be challenging, but by following these tips, you can help ensure a safe and successful move.
