3 Tips to Survive a Winter Move

Relocating at any time of year can be stressful, but it can be even harder when you’re moving during the winter. From snow on the ground to freezing temperatures, moving during this cold season comes with its own set of challenges.

But don’t fret! Here are some simple and easy tips to make your winter move as smooth and stress-free as possible.

  1. Be Flexible

The weather can be very unpredictable in the winter: it can be clear one day and then snowing heavily the next. On top of that, you may have to deal with wind, hail, or other extreme weather conditions. In the week leading up to your relocation, you should keep your eye on the weather forecast.

Rescheduling your move: If there is a large storm coming through on the day of your relocation, then you should contact your movers and reschedule. With their lighter workload in the winter, this shouldn’t create much of a problem.

  1. Purchase Weatherproof Moving Supplies

When you’re packing up, you should always keep the possibility of rain and snow in mind. If it is wet during the day of your move, you’ll want to ensure that your belongings are adequately protected.

You can waterproof as much of your move as possible by using moving supplies such as:

  • Plastic bins
  • Mattress bags
  • Plastic wrap
  • Waterproof moving labels
  • Bubble wrap


Keep Your Electronics Safe During Your Winter Move

Electronics and wet weather don’t mix well! To ensure your valuables, your family, and your movers stay safe, it may be a good idea to have the moving company professionally pack up these for you.

  1. Create a Safe Environment

Winter weather conditions can make moving more dangerous than in the summer or spring. Before you start loading anything into your moving truck, you must create a safe environment.

This means that you should:

  • Shovel away any snow and ensure that your walkways are free of ice.
  • Consider creating a shelter along exposed areas to provide coverage from rain or snow.
  • Lay down plastic sheeting to protect your floors from stains, scratches, or the need for excess cleaning.
  • Use an anti-icer on your steps to prevent injury and damage to your items.

By doing all of this in advance, you’ll ensure that your move will be quick and seamless and that your movers, family, and belongings are protected.
