How to move in the wintertime

Hogan Moving |

Home For Sale Sign in Front of Snowy New HouseMoving is always a special and sometimes trying time in your life. It can be made even more taxing if the weather isn’t in your favor during this transition. So, what can you do to give you and your family a leg up on this endeavor? Check out these tips below!

Start now

Preparation is essential when planning to move during the cold months. If you know you’ll be moving during this season then the sooner you get started on planning your new home location, how you’re going to board your pets, making sure your car is winterized, and possibly hiring a mover, the better! Freezing temperatures and slushy snow will be working against you so the more prepared you are the better chance you have a smooth move!

Watch the weather

The closer it gets to the big moving day the more you’ll need to keep an eye on the upcoming weather. You’ll be fighting daylight and may need to, not only, adjust for that, but also for potential snowstorms, plummeting temperatures, and freezing rain. If you plan for these threats early enough it will give you and your family time to adapt your moving strategy.

Hire a professional

This might be the smartest investment you make while moving while it’s snowing out. Traveling a long distance on icy roads and loading up a moving truck can be the biggest hassle. Hiring a mover will be worth every penny for this type of move. Trust us.

Don’t pack your winter gear

Here’s a tip that gets looked over often. Whether you decide to hire a mover or not, make sure you leave out all the scarves, gloves, hats, and winter boots. Kiddos will thank you for forever for this! That way in your transport you’ll be warm and as comfortable as possible.
