Moving is rarely fun, but in the winter, it can be downright miserable. From frigid temps to icy roads, there are many challenges with moving in the colder months. Below are a handful of helpful tips from Ross Sapir, CEO and Founder of Roadway Moving.
Make sure your electric is turned on early.
Before you move in, be sure that all utilities have been turned on so you can comfortably enjoy heat and light for your first couple nights.
Avoid any falls.
Clear the driveways and walkways of snow and make sure you salt the icy areas so you and your movers are safe walking to and from the trucks
Have a back-up plan.
If a winter storm is threatening your move, make sure you've already spoken to your moving company to see if they have a policy in place for any unexpected date changes.
Protect your home.
Going in and out of your home during the move will drag salt and dirt all over your floors. Avoid this by laying down plastic or cardboard boxes for protection
Dress in layers
. Moving boxes in and out will work up a sweat so make sure you have the proper clothing on that you can either add layers when you go outside or take off layers once you get inside.
