The winter months can be a tough time to move your household to a new home, because it’s cold and there can be added hazards from winter weather. However, the plus side is that you may be saving a ton of cash on moving costs due to the lack of business among moving companies.
Once you’re done qualifying for a mortgage and you’re ready to make your move this winter, Relocation.com has some advice on how to make the process easier.
Start by taking an amply supply of warm clothing with you, recommends the source. If you do choose to pack them away and your shipment gets delayed, you could find yourself wearing multiple layers of t-shirts for a couple of weeks.
At your current and new homes, make sure than the driveway, sidewalks and footpaths are cleared and salted prior to the moving companies arrival, advises Relocation.com. Any injuries to the crew while they’re on your property could end up being your responsibility, so be careful.
Additionally, your items will probably be in the back of an unheated van for quite some time, so make sure you don’t have any liquids in your shipment, says the source. For other items that can be damaged by extreme cold, the moving company should have special materials to pack them in to keep them protected.
