The winter months are known for being one of the hardest times for trying to move. The weather is bad, you’re more likely to get the house dirty, plus you’re trying to keep warm while packing up everything. Most families tend to pack up and move during the spring or summer months because the days are a lot longer, it’s warmer, and the chance for good weather is much higher. Regardless of the distance that you move, whether it be short, long, or even moving for your business, it’s all going to be hectic and possibly even a headache.

November to February are the months where hardly anyone moves. This tends to be the off-peak season for moving companies as well. Luckily these months are far more affordable and it’s even easier to move as well. Moving services tend to be far more affordable, easy to work with, and usually have fewer delays as well. These are some helpful tips on what to do and how to prepare for winter moving.

Know where all of your warm clothes are located

During the packing process of moving to apartments for rent, you’ll want to make sure you know exactly where your warm clothes are.  This should include your sweaters, hats, gloves, coats, scarves, and everything else you’re doing to keep warm during this move. It may even be helpful to know exactly where all of your blankets are as well. Make sure to have your winter clothes readily available so it may be best to have those packed up last, so you’ll know where they’re located at all times.

Turning off your utilities

You’ll want to make sure you’re stress-free during the entire moving process. If you’re still packing, it’s best to not turn off your utilities just yet. The winter months are shorter and colder, and you’re going to need that light and warmth to get through the packing and cleaning. 

Just right before your move, maybe just one day before or even hours before departing, look into getting your utilities turned off then. You’ll also want to make sure your new home has fully functional utilities as well so those utilities will be on by the time you arrive. The last thing you’re going to want to deal with is trying to move into your new home and the utilities aren’t on. It’s crucial to plan accordingly with these things.

Stock up on winter supplies

It’s important to have a general idea of how the weather usually is in the area you’re currently at  and the area you’re moving to as well. You do not want to end up being stuck in a blizzard while traveling to your new home.  While it’s best to look at the weather in advance, sometimes that doesn’t always help. Try stocking up on some things to help keep you warm in your car such as salt, shovel, an extra tire, cellphone, power bank, first aid kit, and some blankets. It may not be likely to happen to you, but it’s always best to play it safe in case an emergency hits.
