4 Tips For Moving In The Wintertime

A wintertime move is often a great way to save money on your relocation. But to move from your old residence to your new one, it’s important to follow certain steps to ensure that the process is a safe and efficient one.

These include:

1. Hire a Professional Moving Company

If there was ever a time to invest in a moving service, this would be it. Enlisting the help of an experienced moving company can significantly lessen the stress of your relocation and has many benefits including:

  • Lowers your risk of injury or damaged property
  • Creates a faster and more efficient move
  • Leads to a more cost-effective relocation
  • Keeps your valuables (eg. luxury furniture and pianos) safe

REMEMBER: Slips and falls on winter snow and ice are not uncommon for people taking the risk to move their own items in the winter time. Play it safe and protect you and your family by hiring a moving service.


2. Make Sure All Paths Are Safe and Clear

Winter weather conditions can make moving more dangerous than in the summer, spring or fall. Before you start loading your belongings into the truck, take care to create a safe environment for you and your moving service.

This includes:

  • Shoveling away any snow from your driveway, creating a wide path to allow for moving large furniture
  • Ensuring your walkways are free of ice to avoid any slips which could cause injury or damage to fragile items or the health of your movers
  • Creating shelter along exposed areas e.g tarps for the rain.

TIP FROM OUR CALGARY MOVING COMPANY: If your new home is nearby, clear the driveway and walkways of the new place the day before. This will save you time during the hectic day of your move.


3. Be Flexible

The weather can be unpredictable in the winter, which is why it’s important to be flexible with regards to your moving date. In the weeks leading up to your relocation, make sure to keep a close eye on forecasts and potential conditions.

If weather reports are predicting a big snowstorm or other dangerous conditions, then you may wish to contact your moving service to reschedule your move to a different day.


4. Turn Down Your Heat

During a move, your home’s doors will be open and closed constantly. This frequent activity will strain your heating system and can lead to high energy bills. So make sure to bundle up in warm clothes and turn down your home’s heating system.

DON’T FORGET! When you’re finalizing your moving plans, don’t forget the important step of calling to set up the heat and electricity for your new home several days before you plan to take possession. This will ensure your place is bright and toasty warm for your arrival
