WINTER MOVING ADVICE

Planning your move can be complex enough without the added obstacles provided by winter. Cold weather and snow can add extra hurtles in an already stressful time. You can easily overcome these complications by preparing and being aware of potential issues before they happen.

Getting the truck close to your house will decrease the time it takes to load and unload, provided the area between the truck and your front door is clear of snow and ice. Remember the last icy morning and how delicately you walked to your car. Now imagine doing it while carrying one of your prized possessions. A clear driveway and walkway will be much safer for your goods and our crews.

Provided your walkways are clear and dry, consider not putting down salt. If there is no snow or ice to melt, the salt can actually reduce traction and will just be picked up and tracked through your home. If the walkway is icy, than salt or sand is a must.

Keep in mind that some outdoor areas may not be accessible on move day. Backyard sheds and under the deck storage areas may be difficult to access if paths haven't been maintained over the winter. If you have items destined for these inaccessible areas, make sure to clear a spot in the garage or other storage area.

It is natural to want to keep your front door closed on a cold day. During high traffic times, it isn't reasonable to expect your moving crew to be constantly opening and closing the door with furniture in tow. You may want to turn your thermostat down during the move to prevent it from heating the outside. (You may also wish to crank it up to account for the cool breeze, that's a matter of personal preference). It may be worth while to have pets and young children left with family or friends to keep them warm, and from being underfoot.

If there is snow on the ground, it will no doubt find it's way in, despite our best efforts. Snow often collects around the front entry way and can often make more of a mess than our floor protectors can shield. You may want to have your mop handy in the event that melting snow makes the front entry wet and slippery.
