Traveling with all of your belongings and moving them off the truck is quite a task as it is. Adding unpredictable winter weather definitely don’t make it easier. If you are looking to move during the cold winter months, here are some tips to make the transition into your new place as easy as possible.
Don’t Leave the Heater Running
With all the traffic in and out of your home throughout the day, leaving your heater on really won’t have any benefit. Since the doors are going to be open all that heat is going to escape meaning the house will remain cold anyways and your first utility bill will be monstrous.
Make Sure Your Driveway and Sidewalks are Clear
A slick of ice on the way into the house is a recipe for disaster when you are trying to haul furniture and boxes of fragile dishes out of the truck and into your home. Don’t risk broken possessions and have a bag of rock salt handy to cover any ice blocking the path into the house.
Have a Stack of Sheets and Blankets on Hand
If it start to snow, sleet, or rain in the middle of the moving process, you’ll want to have some sheets ready to cover up and protect your furniture as it’s being moved into the house. Having plastic sheeting to walk on is good to have to protect your new flooring if you are dealing with wet weather on moving day.
