Be Prepared for a Winter Move with These Tips

If you opt for a winter move, it’s important to take into account the specific benefits and problems this season may hold. Regardless, you can be prepared for a winter move by making sure you’re doing everything in a neat and organized way. So, here are our winter move suggestions from Sinclair Moving and Storage to help you get your winter-time move underway.

Winter Wear

The first thing to do is make sure that you have the right clothes ready to be unpacked when you get to your new home. This sounds straight forward, and it is if you’re moving close to your current home. But if you’re moving across the country or across the globe, you need to make sure that your winter clothes are ready for a change in climate. You’ll want to pack up what you don’t need first and pack up what you’ll need while you move and on the first few days in your new house last.

Winter Weather

Next, prepare yourself for winter conditions. If you’re driving to your new home, make sure your vehicle is stocked with all the gear you might need to get yourself to your new home. If you need chains for your tires, a snow shovel or other winter-weather gear make sure it’s easily accessible in the event it needs to be used. Don’t wait until the last minute to buy this stuff either. You don’t want to be stuck on the road without winter necessities.

Keep Warm

An important thing to remember to take into account is the heating in your new house and your current home. You need to make sure that your new home is ready to be warm for your when you arrive. Ask about what kind of heat the house needs. If the fuel for that heater is something like propane or oil, make sure that the tanks are full for when you and your family arrive. You may even want to ask about where the previous owners got their fuel from. And don’t turn off the heat as you leave your old house. A cold house in winter can mean frozen pipes and major problems. You can turn the heat down, but keep it warm enough to keep your pipes from freezing.

Use an Experienced Moving Company

Lastly, it’s important that you trust a trusted moving company who is experienced with winter moves and all that entails. So, contact our expert team for your winter move to be sure you’re working with the best in the business.
