What you’ll learn
Moving in the winter—with the associated risks of snow, freezing rain, sub-zero temperatures and bitterly cold winds—takes careful planning. We’ll help you determine what precautions you need to take so that everything runs smoothly!
Would you have preferred moving in July or end of April? It’s understandable. But good news! Did you know that there’s a flip side to moving in wintertime? It’ll cost you much less!
Why? Because winter is the low season for moving companies—except during such times as the Holidays. Moving companies have little demand in the winter, which means you can take advantage of very good rates. Make sure, however, you do your homework: not all movers have the experience, expertise and required material to move in winter.
Here is a list of some of the major aspects you need to consider when you plan for your winter move.
On moving day, make sure your plants are properly wrapped up and transport them with care. Freezing temperature can kill a plant. Ideally, bring them with you in a heated car.
Electronics, such as TVs or home theatre and sound systems, although not living organisms like plants, are just as fragile when it comes to drastic changes in temperature. Carefully wrap them up in blankets to protect them from the cold.
Finally, take care of the people who are helping you move by serving much-appreciated warm beverages and water throughout the day. It’ll help your crew to stay motivated until the job is done!
