4. Be organized

The work of the movers is already complicated by the weather conditions. Mark all the boxes. Explain to the workers which items to ship firstly and which one at the last. Do as much in advance as possible to make the process easier for everyone.

5. Start checking

Start checking the weather every week before you move and then every day. If you begin to understand that traffic can be complicated by a snowstorm, call your transportation company. Express your concern and discuss your options for moving the action. Especially if you live in Washington state where winter weather is not predictable due to Cascade Ranges.

6. Thoroughly pack your boxes

Snow or rain damage them, cardboard get wet. Use water repellent packaging or contact a shipping company for help. 

7. Clear the front road and sidewalk

Such items easily break down after contact with moisture. You need to make sure that your TV gets to your new home in a good condition.

Make drinks so you can warm up when you load your things, as the door to the house will be open. Bring the movers in, it’s hard for them to work in this weather. Especially if you live in a state like Montana and the winter is particularly harsh.

Despite the fact that the movers will take care of loading things, the rest of the house will also be exposed to the cold winter weather. Doors will keep opening and closing, allowing cold air in and out, so it is important to dress warmly.

14. Make sure

Make sure the electricity and utilities at your new locationare switched on before you move in. When you arrive, turn on the heating and clear the path of snow before you or the movers start bringing boxes into your home.

15. Choose the professionals

Moving in winter requires certain skills in this area. This is especially important if you are moving far. For example, from California to Wyoming. Good movers can help make your winter move enjoyable and minimize danger. 

Bottom line

Moving is not an easy task despite the season. It is very stressful especially if the seniors move. Be organized and then the winter move will be easy. Take care of your pets because the cold affects them as well as the plants. Transport them in your warm car. Only contact a team of professionals to make sure you and your belongings are safe. The best movers know how to move even things like a piano. You can save a lot of money in the winter. Don’t get caught up in the weather, make sure you pack your things well and go to your new home.
