Tips For a Winter Move


Usually, when people think of a time to move, it’s usually between May and September, but the winter can actually be a great time to schedule your next move! It’s not a very popular time for house hunting so you’ll most likely get a good deal on a place and you can save on your moving expenses. The downfall to moving in the winter is that New England weather is unpredictable. It can be sunny one minute and the next we’re in the middle of a blizzard. A-Z Express Movers, Inc. has a few safe tips for your cold weather move!

  • As your moving date approaches, keep an eye on the weather and any reports. Look for incoming storm fronts that could hinder your move. Along with the weather, keep an eye on your local traffic reports. Try to avoid high traffic streets during winter weather to ensure you and your belongings arrive to your new home safely.
  • Keep your winter items, like your shovel, scraper and salt, unpacked and in your car with you. If there was a recent snowfall, you might have to shovel a path to and from your new home. To prevent any slippery accidents, throw salt down to keep yourself and moving company safe.
  • Hiring a professional moving company has benefits for moves in the fall, but it has even greater benefits in the winter. You’ll be moving in not so ideal conditions so hiring professionals to do this will only benefit you.
  • Be sure to dress in layers so that you can regulate your body temperature. You may be cold at first, but in time, you’ll work up a sweat and need to shed some layers.
  • Keep towels handy to wipe down any areas or boxes that get dirty or wet from snow. This will help to keep dripping boxes at bay and prevent any accidents.
