Moving In The Winter: How To Do It Right
November 10, 2020
There is no doubt that moving in the winter is a challenge. The warm sun and cool breeze are replaced by frigid winds and arctic storms. Just because the weather is a disaster, doesn’t mean your move needs to be.
Here are ways that you can ensure that your belongings reach their next destination safely and efficiently this winter.
Creating a safe environment is paramount. This could be the difference between that precious vase arriving in one piece rather than 30. Shoveling snow regularly during the move creates a safe environment for you and your moving party. Applying salt on your walkway can significantly improve mobility and increase the safety and efficiency of your move; allowing you to settle into your new home faster.
Protecting your floors should also be a top priority. Lining your floors with runners, plastic sheets, or old towels will protect them from any dirt, rocks, or melting snow that makes their way inside.
If you have a long driveway, it may be worthwhile to put up party tents for extended coverage. Using shelter during your move completely seals off the area from snow and rain, ensuring an even faster move.
