As a company that has been offering moving services throughout Bucks County, PA, Montgomery County, Delaware County, Chester County, and Philadelphia for over two decades, we know how hard it can be for our customers to move from and to a new home during the winter season.
To help guarantee you have a stress-free and safe time moving to your new house or apartment during the coldest months of the year, we here at Brothers Movers would like to offer you these three tips:
Keep your eyes on the weather – Rain during the winter is one thing, but snow and ice is a different story. Sometimes, heavy snow and ice not only has the potential to shut roads down and simply make driving hazardous, but it can also prohibit the movers you hire from doing their jobs efficiently, safely, and as quickly as they can. Therefore, it’s important that you keep your eyes on the weather so that your moving day isn’t also one where a major ice or snowstorm will strike. In fact, if the conditions will be anything but favorable, you should schedule your move for a later date.
If your move is the day after a winter storm passes, shovel and salt asap – Just like you don’t want to tread on a sidewalk or driveway covered in snow or ice, neither do your movers. To make certain that you movers can job their jobs effectively, quit packing for an hour—or however long it will take you to shovel and salt, so that your movers won’t slip, trip, or fall while moving your belongings.
Place winter essentials in your first night box – A first night box is great to have for a move at any time of the year. If you’re moving when it’s cold, you may want to include some winter gear such as gloves, snow boots (if snow is in the forecast the day after you move), additional clothing layers, and even a couple of extra, comfortable quilts.
Even though many people prefer not to move during the winter months, a lot of people need to do it because they no other choice. What we mentioned in this article is just a few of things you can do to ensure your winter move goes flawlessly for both you and the movers you hire.
