Winter Moving Tips
The winter moving tips provided here will help you to relocate with your family in very cold weather conditions. Winter moving can involve delays in pick up and delivery due to bad weather, so it is best to leave your utilities and telephone connected until the moving company has picked up all your belongings.
If you are moving in winter, you will have to make arrangements to keep your driveways, walkways, and outdoor sheds clear of ice and snow, to avoid delaying the movers.
Keep warm clothes handy, and make sure that everyone in the family is well protected from the cold. This is especially important if you are moving from a warm climate to a very cold climate. Ideally you should move to a colder climate in the summer, to allow your family to get used to the cold.
If you are planning to drive to your new home, read up on winter driving tips, and make sure that your car or truck is equipped with winter tires and safety chains. Check to see that the vehicle is in a good condition, and have it winterized at a local garage before you leave.
Carry tinned food, bottled water, first-aid kit, flashlight, extra batteries, and matches with you.
Once you reach your new home, check the heating equipment to see if it is working, and make sure that the chimney is clear before you light a fire. Get a snow shovel and clear the driveway of snow and ice to prevent people from slipping.
Tune in to the local radio and television stations to keep track of adverse weather conditions.
