Winter Moving Tips from B&K Movers
The Winter can be a tough time to move so here are some Winter Moving Tips! But moving during the winter isn’t all bad. In fact, there are benefits to it! There are less people moving so B&K may have more flexibility with our scheduling availability. Additionally, you may have some Holiday time off. The extra time can help you with your packing and organizing. Read on for more great tips!
PAY ATTENTION TO THE WEATHER FORECAST – AT BOTH ENDS OF YOUR MOVE
Winter weather can be unpredictable, so it’s a good idea to monitor the forecast closely in the days leading up to your move. Freezing rain and significant snowfall cannot only make hauling boxes unpleasant, they can cause road closures or accidents. If it looks like a winter storm is going to roll in the same day you’re planning to roll out, it’s better to err on the side of safety!
CLEAR THE WAY AND MAKE SURE THERE IS NO ICE ON THE WALKWAYS
Slippery sidewalks and pathways are one of the biggest risks associated with a winter move. The potential for bruises and broken bones goes up dramatically when the path to your door is covered with snow or ice, and so does the potential for damaged furniture or valuables. Stop an accident in its tracks by removing snow and ice from your walkways and laying down salt or sand.
COVER YOUR FLOORS
Make sure there’s a safe path outside your home, but what about inside? Snow, water, mud, and other debris can often find their way inside during a move, which means your floor could become a slippery mess before you know it. A great way to prevent indoor slip-ups is to lay down scraps of carpet or leftover broken down boxes
PROTECT YOUR POSSESSIONS
Since you’ll be dealing with more extreme weather in wintertime, it’s important to take extra steps to protect your property. Rapid temperature changes can cause dishes to crack or shatter, so it’s a good idea to add extra insulation and padding. Furthermore, Covering the boxes in plastic will protect against snow or freezing rain.
