Moving in Winter: Success Tips

Moving in Winter: Success Tips

Moving in Winter: Success TipsMoving in winter has its perks- for one, you can probably get a great deal on your apartment since winter is a notoriously slow time for renting. However, it’s not without its challenges. Moving into your new place in the dead of winter requires a bit more planning and coordination to ensure the process runs smoothly. Therefore, we have compiled a checklist of all the things you need to remember to have a stress-free moving day. Once you’re settled, be sure to obtain a comprehensive CT Renters Insurance policy to secure your belongings.

Watch The Weather

Periodically check weather reports, and keep an eye on the weather map for approaching storm fronts that could inhibit your move. Even if you’ve been watching for a few days, weather is fickle and may change with little warning. You should also keep an eye on traffic reports. Plan the route to your new apartment around roads that have stalled traffic, states U.S. News.

Keep Winter Tools Handy

Items like a shovel, salt, ice scrapers, and snow gear should be kept in the car with you rather than stowed away in boxes since you’ll need them immediately. Be sure to salt the walkways to your apartment to ensure you and your moving crew’s safety. Be sure to wipe down boxes that are riddled with dirty snow or ice to prevent moisture from seeping into your floors, as well.

Get Help

A moving company is ideal since you can avoid heavy lifting in dangerous conditions. However, if that’s not in the budget, consider asking friends and family for assistance.

Dress In Layers

Prevent overheating by dressing in layers. You’ll be running around all day settling into your new place so dress warm for when you’re outside but allow your body to cool by taking off excess layers inside.

Board Your Pets

The last thing you need is someone stepping on your pet by accident or letting them out when moving in boxes. Board them for the day or have someone watch them while you move.
