Spring Moving Tips for a Safe Move

Many people try not to move in the winter. Between snow and possible heat issues adding to the stress that moving already creates, some opt to wait until the thaw arrives and winter is officially on its way out. But spring can have its disadvantages as well. Spring-time can have its own challenges when moving. So, here are a few things to be careful of if you’re planning a move in the spring.

Cold Weather

One of the first things to consider is that early spring is not that far away from winter. Snow and cold weather may still be a problem for at least the month of March. Don’t pack away the shovels and deicer in boxes because the first day of spring has arrived and don’t pack away the winter clothes where you won’t be able to get to them.

The Trees

As the trees start to blossom, you’ll also have to worry about the shedding of petals, seeds, blossoms and pollen from trees. In the fall, wet leaves can cause havoc. They create slippery surfaces that can cause problems for vehicles as well as foot traffic. The same happens as the trees start to leaf and lose their blossoms in the spring. The petals fall and can carpet a walkway, creating banana-peel-slick conditions that can lead to slips and falls. If the home you’re leaving or the home you’re moving into has a few of these kinds of trees around, make sure you’re careful.

Wet Conditions

Another thing that you’ll have to worry about is rain. As the say, April showers bring May flowers. Spring means rain and that means wet conditions, flooding, and mud. All of this can make a move very difficult. A muddy lawn can be torn apart by the foot traffic of a moving team. And a rainy moving day can lead to wet cardboard and damp clothes as people try to get your items in and out of the rain.
