Key Things to Remember When Moving in the Snow
Winter moving can be a lot harder than normal, and let’s face it moving is hard enough as it is. When snow is involved it makes it that much more of a hassle. But it doesn’t have to be, if you take all the right precautions to be prepared.
The things you must remember to do when there is snow on the ground when moving is to make sure all pathways are shoveled and salted. Remember, not only your doorway needs to be clear, but all other doors and pathways/walkways must be clear too for loading. This includes clearing your backyard, if necessary. Don’t forget if you have a shed to have the pathway to the shed clear for unloading the items you will be packing and loading in your moving container from the shed. It may be a good idea too, to unload your shed prior to your move, if you are in an area that is expecting or gets a lot of snow during the time you move.
It is important to remember to pack all outdoor items that you may have as well before a snowfall prior to the move. This includes things not only in the shed, but outdoor ornaments/decorations that you may have around the house (front/back) that can easily be forgotten about or covered in snow, for example the ornaments that you may place in your front yard/ backyard ground or garden.
Ensure that the parking areas for any vehicles and moving trailers are clear and salted for parking in a planned designated area for moving day.
Being prepared ahead of time for your move in the winter snow, will allow for a smooth move and less stressful move!
