Are you ready? Winter is here! And if you must move your household right in the middle of it, you need to know the essential tips and tricks to getting it done without losing your mind, because who liked the freezing cold?
Consider that for at least 39 states, winter brings freezing temperatures, sleet, snow and other cold weather hazards. So, we’ve put together the comprehensive list you need for your winter move.
Did you know that winter is the off-season for moving companies? When you move in winter, you may have a wider range of dates to choose from. Moving companies also offer discounts and rebates for winter moves as they try to drum up more business. It’s time for you to take advantage!
Have you considered that people will be trampling in and out of your house when the weather is wet and slushy outside? Consider covering your floor with plastic tarp or sheeting to keep the mud and muck from staining your carpet, walls or floors.
Since people will be going in and out f your house all day, consider turning off your heat or furnace. Not only will it save on your heating bill, but it will expedite the moving process. If anything, turn your space heater on in the bathroom so that you or your movers can escape to it for a little warm respite.
Of course, when you are moving during the winter there is much more to consider. From boarding your pets to clearing your sidewalks, driveways and streets of snow and debris.
